I think I misspoke. I'm looking forward to a 2x4 balanced with Dirac live. Will it be released with the RCA version? I really hope so as I stopped using RCA cables some time ago.

I expect it's most likely that the products that have already been announced (2x4 HD, 2x4 DL, DDRC-BM plugin, nanoAVR DLA even...) will come out before the ones that haven't... ;)

Dear All,

Well, the 2x4DL isn't out, but at least the 2x4HD kit is released. :-)
minidsp.com/products/minidspkits/2-x-in-4-x-out-hd

more news to come in the next few days..

DevTeam

The user manual for the 2x4HDKit, shows the non-kit form 2x4HD. When will that be available ? I was hoping for 2x5 for a LXmini Studio.
Regardless, I'm VERY excited for at least 2.0-VRMS OUTPUT instead of the paltry 0.9-VRMS which couldn't fully drive my amp.

@ Neil,

- Still few months before the boxed version is out. Glad to hear that you like the 2Vrms output. :-)

@ p.sevko
- No hardware volume control on this board, only IR control. The 2x4HD user manual and datasheet is all version complete. What you see is what you get :-)

@ Amnes
- Unfortunately no timeline for the balanced at this time. As John mentioned our policy for miniDSP is only to talk of products when they are indeed ready to be released. :-)

Could you please confirm the amount of PEQ slots in the new 2x4 series? Product description as well as plug in sheet says 5 per channel but on the screenshot of the GUI shows 10 EQ slots, and manual confirms this.
Also can FIR be used in addition to IIR, or do the user have to choose one or the other?

I'm pretty sure it will be like the miniSHARC, you can use both FIR and IIR (PEQ) at the same time.

Where in the product description does it say 5 PEQ per channel? All the screenshots show ten.

Either I misread or they corrected the text.
Anyway, 10 PEQ's is great news!

I'm asking just to be sure, you are talking about the "MiniDSP 2x4 HD/DL" when you say few months?

Thanks

I'm very impatient to see this new product with Dirac Live for low price (I've just tried Dirac Live on my computer and results are amazing!!!).
I'd just like one thing : digit outputs… Will it be possible to DIY this model to have 4 digit Outputs ?

@cdesl :

Very unlikely unless the 2x4 HD DL allows digital output via USB (quite possible, but something nobody will know for sure until it is released) AND you are willing to use that output (that is, you aren't looking for digital output via SPDIF)

MiniDSP products that include HDMI and/or Dirac Live aren't DIY-friendly (i.e., no support or information disclosure on how to modify them) due to licensing requirements. Devteam has clearly said so in several threads in this community.

So, if you want to do digital output, probably the only way would be to open the 2x4 HD DL box and try to tap the I2S lines. However, don't expect to get any support for that from miniDSP, not to mention that it could completely void your warranty, of course.

With USB input i.e. using the inbuilt DAC, will it support USB HID volume control?

@ Franz,

We were indeed talking of the 2x4 DL. The 2x4HD is now out B)
www.minidsp.com/products/minidsp-in-a-box/minidsp-2x4-hd

As usual, we'll keep the community updated asap it's ready to ship. It's really best for us to "not" set any expectations on delivery schedule. These projects always run into troubles. It's the nature (and fun) of hardware + software + firmware development. :-)

@ occamsrazor

It currently doesn't but it's a good idea for a future enhancement. We're already using HID so should be something possible I guess. :-) \
