    I can recommend the miniDSP unit. It is free of noise and hum and is used in the new Linkwitz LXmini speaker project. The unit functions as a stereo 2 way electronic crossover and compensator for speaker irregularities. And it fits in the palm of your hand. Very useful! Available from Madisound.com. It links to a PC via a USB cable and can be programmed to do just about anything you may need it to do. Remarkable product. No more conventional crossovers for me. Multi-amping is the way to go. Happy speaker building.

    • Thanks I got a really feeling from these guys.

    I also highly recommend MiniDSP. I’ve been following them for a while and I use one of their smaller units for subwoofer equalization in my home theater. It works like a charm. I got to visit their booth at CES as well and was amazed at how far they’ve come along in the past few years. They more or less got their start offering essentially circuit board kits for DIY audio enthusiasts. They seemed like a great bunch of folks to boot!
