Hi friends
I am wanting to make a high quality preamp with 2x4hd that will connect to my 4 channel monoblocks diy class ab
My poweramp doesn’t have volume control
What would I need to get to make a superb Pre amp that will also be my active crossover and also be Dirac capable

My input will be from Apple TV 4K also in future Pi with Digi one DAC

Regards
Anand

I used a 2x4 HD as a pre-amp for about a year but the fact it doesn't have a display to show input and volume level were a negative for me. I now use an SHD instead and I'm much happier with it from a functional point of view. It is however considerably more expensive!

If you want Dirac then the DDRC-24 is the version of the 2x4 HD with this added.

You can connect a Pi directly to a 2x4 HD using the USB input by the way, rather than using a DAC for the Pi.
