Cranesong Hedd 192 Upgrade-and 192kHz in General

Profile picture for user Link555

Is the 192kHz upgrade worth it? I know its not that expensive but I am really not sold on the need for 192kHz. Thoughts?

If you think you will need 192k in the near future or for some specific client, $60 sure seems more than resonable to have that capability even if it is nothing more than to brag about or advertise to future clients that you have Crane Song 192k capability.

I sure wish I had the HEDD to brag about...

Gaff's comment is still valid regardless of the price
if your curiosity is worth $400 ... then do
if you can wait ... then don't

if crane song never release a better upgrade deal then you may regret not

not much help am I ?

do it do it do it
then tell me how good it is

brag brag brag

I hope that some time in the second half of the year, I'll have some time and the DIY desk might be clear of all the crap ... I may get to do some gear building again

which THAT chips have your interest at the moment ?

yes DIP is fine
THAT 4301 Dynamics Processor

yes an interesting chip
Prod Pro have a couple of references to this one and it's brothers
The Picco Compressor is one
I'm sure there are more thread there

side note

and I think Gearslutz may also have a thread

Get a Demo Board from THAT and start experimenting
obviously the app notes have lots of info

I have some 1510 chips
but just haven't had a chance to try a new circuit
or put them into the KDMP Kev Dual Mic Pre

interesting THAT connection
