A few posts ago I mentioned the Sydney-developed DEQX speaker correction system. Now the famed Abbey Road Studios has installed three of the PDC-2.6 systems (each is stereo, so three provide six channels). The studios are apparently not availing themselves of the full capabilities of the system, but primarily using it to correct room-induced anomalies in the bass frequency response of their monitoring system.
It’s extraordinary what digital technology is allowing. It seems that Abbey Road considers this system as the ideal (and therefore ‘high-end’) solution to its needs. Yet a single PDC-2.6 is within the (somewhat extreme) realms of affordability to the high fidelity enthusiast.
