Differences between GLM and SE DSP?

I've been trying to sort out what the GLM version of loudspeaker manager does that the SE DSP does not do. It looks like the only difference is that the SE version only works with the 8130 and 7261. I'm in a small environment and wondering if there is any functional advantage to going to 8240 for a stereo setup. If the SE DSP does exactly the same stuff as the GLM it looks like the 8130/7260 might be the better route.

Thanks for your question. Both DSP and SE DSP systems have basically the same functionality and mode of operations. The differences are in the system architecture, the system combination facility and the number of correction filters available for each speaker.

DSP System ... stems/glm/
The system architecture is a so-called distributed one, where the DSP power is available in each DSP loudspeaker. Then, GLM™ provides connectivity for up to 25 8200 Series loudspeakers and 5 7200 Series subwoofers. All models can be mixed in a single system with full GLM control over them.

SE DSP ... ms/glm-se/
The system architecture features a centralized DSP power system. All DSP power is available in the SE7261A DSP subwoofer. The GLM.SE™ provides connectivity for one SE7261A DSP subwoofer combined with up to eight 8130A digital input loudspeakers. Also the GLM.SE software works solely with the SE7261A subwoofer and vice-versa.

Concerning the correction filters available in each system, the following AutoCal Technology page features all the details: ... s/autocal/

So, the SE System might well be the right solution for your small environment. You can also consult our on-line speaker selection guide for further guidelines on system selection. ... selection/

Hope this is helpful.
