Can the c-dsp 8x12 be used in a home hifi system? Nothing else gives me what this unit can for a 6 way x-over with digital in.

It certainly can, I am currently using my C-DSP 6x8 in my home temporarily while my NanoAVR's are being sent to MiniDSP for repairs.

My question is whether the DIRAC functionality differs between any of the MiniDSP Dirac products?
Dirac is not something I am very familiar with but something I am now starting to look into.

How do you adjust for the high vrms output? Attenuate?

Just a warning of caution here worth noting. The CDSP8x12 is a car audio platform full of little details meant to mitigate noise in a very noisy car environment (lack of clean ground). That's a completely different setup than a home setup where you have 50~60Hz from your AC and earthing. Few comments:
a) A linear supply would be required (as it requires earthing)
b) All inputs are "differential balanced" = like balanced input. So it's not the same as a simple RCA.

For that reason, the 8x12 isn't as simple as a swap for one platform to the other.

In terms of powering the C-DSP 8x12 v2, would this SMPS be alright?: www.minidsp.com/products/accessories/mis...psu-12v-800ma-detail

How much power would the C-DSP draw? How many amps at 12v?
