    Dear All

    Just a note, we now only have around 7 Surround Masters left to sell, I hope you guys get them. Don't panic as I have a plan.

    As you know we are developing a mega pre amp but we will design a new Surround Master in an economy preamp form with Volume, individual level controls, Bluetooth, optical, MM, MC in a metal enclosure. The price will be higher than the existing SM and somewhere between $700 to $950.

    I made this decision because the SM is an oddity audio accessory, there are very few quality economy preamps on the market and none that do full surround from stereo. It is a product that the shops will understand.

    Will send pictures shortly

    Regards

    Chucky

    Hi. Chucky
    This new Surround Master would it incorporate the new vinyl SQ & QS system or is it your original system..

    I very much might be in at the lower price if it has adjustable input levels, it is 24/96 all over, the switching between modes is not clunky and the firmware is either soft or a swappable chip. Also if it could be configured as a line-level device with not preamp controls.

    I would be in at the higher price if it includes the digital side of a CD-4 demod but I guess demodulating in the PC will be ready before the new SM is designed.

    Hope to get a render in a week or two. The final date depends on Dave the bitch who is permanently sick at the moment, lost a ball, currently has the flu, off because his "wife" is pregnant.....blah blah blah. It is hard to get good help these days.

    I hope February next year

    Regards

    I look forward to the new housing/next generation Surround Master. And seeing what it will look like. I've held off buying one to this point, especially having heard a while back that a new metal housing was under development... I'm holding out for the sexier packaged version. With operational upgrades (volume and level controls, connection options)? Awesome!

    Hi

    Its just an issue of overload on other (solar related) projects, Dave has been working on the big fancy higher $ preamplifier, he got sick and lost a ball, got pregnant and is distracted all the time, got sick with the flu and got even more distracted - frankly he does not do work anymore. We want to finish of these two preamps and then we will look at the CD4.

    Really sorry about the delays but cash flow is always the issue and you need to set the sails where the $ wind blows. Our hearts are with the audio.

    Regards

    Chucky

    A question!.
    Are there any SM Left?, Or do we wait for the new version. I'm happy to wait for one that has 6-4 audio outs and some kind of digital out with the option of "bringing your own preamp" so you can switch the inbuilt preamp on or off.

    But also am happy Building a 4 channel amp myself to power it. (or 6)

    Thanks for that, I'm off finding a amp off Ebay and ill be in touch!. I'm sick of the "script method", many hours of farting about. Its a pain in the arse. Plus as I do like QS albums I'm interested in what the Involve mode will do to other stereo stuff. When I get round to ordering it, do I just order it from the Web page with SQ enabled?

    I have used the QSD1 for nearly 40 years for stereo Surround
    on radio CDs LPs and anything else as well as QS records and CD,s
    the Surround master does the same thing as the QSD1
    So you will not be sorry
