Are there any standalone HU's on the market other than the URAL CCD unit that offers the type of flexibility listed in this graph:

That is to say one that offers crossover, equalization, time alignment, etc on each individual output channel. Or is the URAL truly one of a kind in this respect?

I don't know of any other source unit that has all of that integrated...

Any other unit is going to have to use an external processor to get that kind of flexibility.

That graph is actually of an Alto Mobile DRIVE30, I was only using it as a reference. The URAL CCD probably doesn't have quite that many processing features per channel, but it does indeed do separate processing on each individual channel, which is what I am looking for.

No other CD player I'm aware of offers the ability to control individual channels.


The Clarion 9255 might (I don't know off hand), but other than being able to run 4-way active the rest of it's features are pretty limited.

I looked at the DRZ9255 manual, and it appears that it only does time alignment on each individual channel. Xover is each channel pairing, and EQ is L/R channels.

Nice for a HU no doubt, but not what I'm looking for. :crap:

you are asking for too much out of one chassis. i guess the ural is your only option. i'd suggest getting an external processor.
