    Question BBE Signal Processor

    What can anyone tell me about this? http://www.bbesound.com/products/ars/ars.asp
    Came highly recommended by someone I just met and we started talking equipment. (Imagine that!)

    Never heard of it, but obviously some sort of DSP device. Most likely similar to the DSP "modes" that most AV receivers offer.

    If this sort of processing improves the sound it is proof-evident that ephoninics are more important than accuracy. Of course, one suspects the same is true of tube preamps, tube buffers, and tube amps in general. (I'm a tube preamp user myself.) One also suspects that it is true of the LP analog medium.

    For analog sources, it can yield a bit of clarity to the signal by mildly boost some parts of the frequency over others. Its a bit subtle, and you can dial in what you like.

    In the digital world this product is completely useless, as it just becomes a crude equalizer that is completely unnecessary. My experience has been that BBE processing is totally audible with digital sources, and not so much so with analog sources.
