About time we start a RS20i owners therad. Dan Francis did a great job in the Datasat RS20i BETA test and comparison with ADA Rhapsody/Trinnov TEQ-12!!!!
and I am sure we are all appreciative of the effort that was involved to get that comparison setup and completed. Thank you Dan.
This thread is to be used for owners and potential owners to ask questions about the RS20i. I am not one to set rules, but questions about setup, features and EQ calibration is certainly welcome. Also, anyone who has become familiar with the unit please don't hesitate to post any tips for users or potential users.
A general overview of the unit can be had at DataSat
