Hi MiniDSP community,

First off, just want to say I think miniDSP is doing a lot of really cool things as a company and I love a lot of their products. I'm presented with the following dilemma -- the DACs in most home theater processors/AVRs are quite bad, when compared to the world of audiophile 2-channel. There are devices like the Bryston SP4, which probably has very good DACs in it, but that costs $17k. So I would rather use a competent multichannel DAC like the Okto DAC8, which costs roughly $1300, for home theater. This leads me to my request/message. I would like a box that's essentially the DDRC-88D but designed for home theater -- i.e., it has an HDMI eARC input (to connect your TV),  does surround decoding (Atmos, DTSX, etc), does Dirac multichannel room correction, and then outputs DIGITAL so I can connect the multichannel DAC of my choosing. I guess my questions are as follows:

1) Does minidsp plan to make any home theater products similar to what I described? Main features would be adding HDMI input and surround processing for home theater use. Right now everything feels targeted towards pro-audio, which is understandable but doesn't fit my use case.

2) If such products aren't planned, can you consider making them in the future?
