Compact delay box?
« on: January 23, 2019, 11:56:20 am »

Does anyone in here have suggestions for a compact delay box? I like the look of the Rolls HRD342, but the reviews online leave me questioning it! I'll be using it to delay back/side fill speakers.

Shure DFR11EQs are getting old but should still do the trick and are available for under $50 on eBay.

have you looked at behringer shark.

I use this for the delay's and high pass filter.  Usually High pass at the sub woofer cutoff. 100 hz.

Is anybody actually able to program these units nowadays?  Last time I did I was using an old XP laptop and the software still crashed fairly often.

Years ago I used the Behringer Shark, I can vouch for the delay part of it, it worked fine. I never used any of the other stuff it offers, fb suppression, comp, gate, eq. tiny package and $99.00

I have an old XP lap top with a real serial port that runs the software just fine, there was/is a couple versions of the software kind of depends on the hardware version DFR11 you have as to the software version it likes the best.

I still use a couple DFR11's in some 70 volt paging systems I set up from time to time.

As for the original question, Klark Teknik made a lot of dedicated delay lines you can pick up fairly cheap these days.
I have a KT 7103 that still works great...should I ever need to use it anymore.

I have one in line with my hometheater subs.  I have an old thinkpad with win 7 that runs the software. Ok ish for a set and forget.  I don't remember what I had to do to get it to run.

Only real issue i had with these is they have a very specific external power supply that is easy to lose, and hard to find/replace.  But these work great and have all the right connectors and such.

MiniDSP is another option: https://www.minidsp.com/products/minidsp-in-a-box/minidsp-balanced-2x4

Oh yeah, MiniDSP is good. I put one of their 2x4 cards into a special project some 5-6 years ago, and it's been rock solid.

Wait. I had read that the minidsp has a limited amount of delay.
Is it capable of doing 100ms or more?

That would be a handy little box to have around.

QSC's DSP-4 can sometimes be had for very cheap. It's another XP serial port dealio.
