Just saw this article stating the DSP8.8 is FINALLY hitting the streets! Anyone have any more insight with this? Anyone planning on using this? I am seriously considering it especially since you are supposed to be able to make the adjustments using iOS and Android devices. I would love to be able to control this thing with my iPad! :D

All I really got to say is it's about time! Now get the Zen 9 out! 8) And Phoenix Gold, please update your website.

I hear its due out any time now but we have heard that before about other gear. I am hesitant to get any DEQ that requires either pc or phone interface just because I was never more disappointed to see their last DEQ become obsolete as soon as windows 2000 came out.

While I can certainly understand your point, don't most of the DSP's on the market require a PC to interface the DSP unit to its software? Rockford, Helix, Audison, etc. I have also been screwed by hardware becoming obsolete due to not being able to upgrade to new software. I have a DSP for my home theater subs and a 'programmable remote' that ran off of XP and well, I don't have XP anymore.

yes most require some kind of screen. Another thing about DEQs is that for the past 15-20 yrs there is always a new one on its way out that is supposed to change everything.

Well that's just consumer electronics in general. :D

Is it just me, or does it seem like no one builds a be all end all, audiocontrol "kitchen sink" install DSP?

Between small class D amps with high speed fets and mondo-power sub amps that aren't the size of a surfboard anymore, I keep thinking the next holy grail isn't just another small advance in amps... But a truly holy crap DSP.
A $10 arm chip has more processing power than some music studios had in the 90's.
Shouldnt the D in DSP still stand for digital? Haven't we figured out how to move large amounts of data digitally really fast?
Why is there some silly 8 channel limit? Why not a digital flowchart version of the old audiocontrol manual diagrams?

Oh, let's just drag and drop few XO slopes here and there, drop a 1/3 octave EQ onto this signal here.... (And auto-pick end bands based on a ao settings... For a midbass channel that is 24db band pass between 60hz and 300hz why should we even care about 3k, 4k, 6k, etc.?)

Then make boards with a pile of inputs and outputs. And when I say a pile, I mean shock and awe. TiDD10 levels of Christmas tree LEDs and outputs. And optical or Ethernet input and output to daisy chain another on if needed.
