I haven't seen the video about the Dayton. I'm not sure why he says to avoid it. I'll have to look for that video (if you have a link handy, that would help).I wonder why he thinks the 408 is not a decent DSP. Not even for $150. He says to save and get something better.
Oh well. I’m still going to try it out.

I actually bought a 408 just to play with, but haven't done anything with it yet.
He may just feel that it's worth a little extra $$ to move up to a minidsp or Helix or something. To me, the DSP is one of the most important parts of an audio system. Everything runs though it and it can really make the difference between an awesome-sounding system and an "ok" sounding system. Even though I eventually got good results from the DSR-1, I decided that I wanted to get something a little better, which is why I upgraded to a Helix DSP.3. Just like anything else, you *generally* get what you pay for... The Helix software is MUCH better than the DSR-1 software and the quality of the parts used to make the item is also vastly different.
Worst case, if you find that you don't like it, you can always upgrade later without much work.... But I'm sure it will be fine for most systems.
