      I tested this on my 3-way DIY active speakers to act as a crossover and EQ. The software is good and easy to dial in the filters while measuring with REW. The downside is it is quite noisy, adding quite a bit of audible hiss. It was less noticeable on my smaller speakers with passive crossover networks which helped to filter it out but I won't be using it as a DSP solution for my active speakers. I even tried a high quality linear power supply in the hope of improving things but it didn't make much of a difference. It would probably be ok for subwoofer management though where this is less of an issue. The other thing was I didn't like having the RCA terminals on both the front and back making cabling look a mess in a home hi-fi setup. I ended up re-housing the board in a bigger box and putting all the terminals on the back plate.

      Die Ware wurde schnell geliefert. Leider liegt kein deutsches Manual bei und es bedarf einiges an mehr Zeit, den DSP 408 einzustellen. Ansonsten sehr gutes Gerät!
