And 500 dollars is price for the unit here in the U.S.? I know you are in Mexico, so just want to make sure. Thanks again!
You can use paragraphic and after graphic eq.
But if you move again on paragraphic you would erase what you did on graphic.
So, I guess the better answer in no. Lol
500 bucks is US target price

THIS is what I have been waiting for - and I can't believe it hasn't happened yet, in today's technology-rich marketplace.

Come ON Zapco, get them out on the market, already!
Z12 and HDR versions will start from. 1000 to 2000 US Dls aprox for the highest models with the possibility to choose from different DAC and OpAmp.

Released was for December, but Zapco still add more functions so... I hope for January or February

I would also be interested in knowing the maximum delay available. But, I suppose it makes some sense to limit somewhat limit the capabilities on the Z8-IV when they should be releasing the DSP-Z16 HDR and DSP-Z12 HDR soon.

Maybe barracuda777 can clear some of this up. I really appreciate the sharing of information!
Xover s slopes are Butterworth as I know is. But I am still waiting for confirmation from. ZAPCO.

L-R would be on Z12 and other great functions as I know.

About Delay, it depends on the max value entered.
If you enter a 200 mm distance for the more distant speaker, 200 would be the max delay available on other speaker.
So if you want to play with more than reality, you can put twice or more as Max value and this way you can play with.

Thanks for the updated info Barracuda....You giving some info on the HD units pricing definitely has me pondering which one I will pick. I am just waiting for specs to be made available and then I will probably finally start my new install. Out with the old, in with the new which has been sitting here for several months.....

Well that will give me more time to save up to buy it, got to look on the bright side!

What is the main advantage of the HDR 16 over the HDR 12 other than more channels? With the 12 one can do a three way front stage, stereo subs, stereo rear fill, and a two way center channel if needed. If the 12 and the 16 have the same processing capabilities then the only ways I could imagine the four additional channels being used is for a three way stereo rear fill or stereo rear fill with a "side surround" channels. Both are really not needed unless it is being used in the most over-the-top systems.

So I called atrend yesterday to see when the DSP-Z8 IV would be available through them and the person I spoke with told me either the last part of January or possibly middle of February. Figured the info may be useful for anyone looking at the thread.

Reviving an older thread.

I just installed my Z8IV.

no audio out. Im wondering if my unit is bad. Or is there a newer or even older version of the GUI I can try.

I also have an horrible issue with the scaling of the display. Its very small on my Lenovo Carbon.

Argh, God. This isn't good news... display scaling (lack thereof) has been one of the biggest complaints with the Zapco software I've had. I do NOT want it to be an issue anymore, I had hoped they would pay attention and fix that problem.

I will be looking elsewhere if this new system is buggy. Let us know if you figure things out.

Plus one. Technology is amazing these days. No reason not to have what you listed above. Software should be great too, I love how Helix software is setup. Easy, looks good and modern look to it

I was wondering if you talking about DPN v10 (Z8 and Z8III).
That was a common issue due to this old software with no backup from developper. Thats why Zpaco got so many problems with.

Now, I got the IV and no issue with resolution display or software or something like that.
Just want to check before going further.

I figured out the no audio issue. The DSP was not putting out anything on the rem out. I never bothered to check if my amps were coming on. I took the unit out, tried it on my bench, and got audio. measured the remote out, g0t 3.2.

Its workable for now. I sent off an email to John, outlining that and several other areas that can be improved.

As for the scaling of the display, its the dpn 1.0.16 (IIRC) DSP Z8vIV.

Hello,
Is your unit a prototype unit or already supposed to be full production unit?
