The Audiophiliac Reviews the DEQX HDP-Express

by ct_acoustic_frontier July 06, 2022

The Audiophiliac is a blog over on CNET written by Steve Guttenberg, a former movie projectionist turned hi-fi and home theater journalist. He wrote about his experience listening to the DEQX HDP-Express ($1995, now discontinued and replaced with the HDP-Express II.) providing speaker and room correction in a system with $30k Focal Utopia speakers:

"when my host switched on the DEQX speaker correction, the sound of the "Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play the Blues" CD snapped into focus. Every instrument in the large jazz band was clearer and more present. High-frequency detailing and "air" were much improved, and bass definition firmed up. Then we turned on the DEQX's room correction, and the sense of listening to a live performance was heightened. Switching off the processing was a letdown; the music became less present and realistic.

As Steve concluded: "DEQX room and speaker correction processors can transform the sound of very good hi-fi and home theater systems, and make them great".
