Many newbies like me will be looking here to finalise their questions before buying. One might expect a prompt response as a sale might well depend on it.

Its a worry that It seems to take days to get a reply and in many cases I see frustrated potential customers like me.

What is the etiquette for posting replies?

Sems to me you should be asking what is the etiquette for asking questions. You know, like explain what you are trying to do and what it is you have difficulty understanding. Long time community members are, I think, wary of questions that betray no effort on the part of the poster to understand the product or read the documention first.

Why does this question require all that detail? As a newbie it's difficult to elaborate until I have at least some fundamental info about the product. Its a simple question that requires just a simple answer and I can then get on and make a purchase. Why the drama?

Because without any context you could just as easily get the wrong answer as the right one.

Still, if alandbush's answer is the correct one, you need to get the 2x4 HD. It's a better unit than the 2x4 anyway.

I'm a miniDSP user and I answer some questions when I can. John.reekie has helped me with some of mine.

Your question is bad. As John says, you need to supply context. Which unit are you talking about? How do you intend to use it? What kind of phase do you want to adjust, at what stage of which process?

There might be a positive answer to your question, but I don't know what your question is.

The documentation isn't the easiest to read. The developers sometimes take their time to respond. You have to understand this is a very flexible DSP, so they can't be expected to know all the contexts every end-user is considering using the units in. And they can't read your mind.

But by-and-large I've found the forums here quite helpful, and I hope I've been helpful in kind.
