    Icon32 AudioControl ESP2 - Worth it? ASAP

    I was looking at an ESP-2 Spatial Restoration Processor. Is it worth it? It supposedly widens the sound stage and gives it a better depth. If I can get a hold of one for about $100, is it worth it? What about the AudioControl Epicenter?

    I love my epic-150, adds what I love most about bass, hard hitting low low bass!

    What do you mean when you say colorization?

    they change what is there in the music to begin with.... they say the "restore" what is lost ..never heard a system i loved with either of those ...liked yes but why spend $ to lose? and most of the guys that compete in sq dont run them durring judging..all they are to me is a band aid

    I have never heard the HPX or that ESP2 thing, but I would recommend an epicenter, thoose things kick ***! Great for 70's music too like the doors and stuff.

    Okay, thanks for your input. I'll hold off on the ESP and the Epicenter and save my money. I just have to add another EQ for my Sub amp and I think I'll leave it at that. Perhaps a line driver later.

    You won't need a line driver, most EQ's boost the voltage anyways.

    The EQL does not boost voltage. Just a voltage matcher.

    Then my manual must be wrong. On the front cover is says "EQL Concert Series - Equalizer/Level Matcher." Nowhere inside does it say it boosts the voltage of preouts. It talks about Level Matching, Balanced Input ("Rejecting up to 60dB of radiated noise"), and Programmable Frequency Match Filters. There's a little 2V LED underneith the power LED on the EQ.

    I have 2 models, this years, and last. Both have a Power LED, an "Input Maximized" LED, and a "2V Output" LED.
