Sabine Graphiq

fiddlerfiddler Posts: 16
Ok I've pretty much decided to go with a DriveRack 260 but I've been reading about the Sabine GraphiQ2 GRQ3122 and it also has the features I'm looking for. Does anyone here have any experience with it?

Plusses for the Sabine include a well written manual and software that seems more intuitive to me though I have no direct experience with either unit yet.

Plusses for the 260 include more outputs, which will probably be the deciding factor for me.

    Auto Eq no

    That's some of the differences... On the PSW (Pro sound web)I have never seen ANYONE who has a Sabine unit post there... that is not to say that they are bad. I have heard good things about Sabine, just letting the features list speak for itself.

    I tried to make it a side by side graph type... but it didn't work...

    In my opinion the Sabine is not a "System controller". It would be the bomb for monitor applications.

    It is not a true x-over. It only has filters that are high & low shelf.

    I'm not sure what market Sabine was going for, but it obviously is not the DriveRack market.
