I bought a decent DSP 4000 and have a question.
On rear panel, I have 2 XLR I/O (combo input jack(55 trs & XLR) and XLR outputs.
But on my friend's DSP 4000, there are -10db I/Os separately.
I've heard my version is somewhat later, and my friend's version is earlier.
What is the sonic difference between mine and his? Maybe earlier version is more better
thank you in advance

if my memory is correct your unit should have 20 bit converters while your friend's is an 18 bit version. They both sound the same.

So, my 4000 has 20bit convertors?
is it good for sound or make the sound sterile?
stupid question sorry..but I would like to know the earlier version has
more better sound.
I know that 'higher bit depth' doesn't mean 'it sounds better'..

Use your ears, Jay.
It should sound better…if you can hear it….not easy.

The older DSP4000s (separate 1/4 jacks) do indeed have 18 bit convertors. They also use pre-emphasis to improve the noise performance – this can lead to a few issues with EQ and reverb presets, as well as with digital I/O. The 20 bit systems are probably better.
But, as Italo points out, sonic beauty is in the ear of the beholder.

yeah important is the ear..totally agreed..
I've noticed that my 4000 boots up little more slower than older model..
older model has 2.00 os ver, and mine is 2.158.
maybe I'm too histeric sorry..
