Confused about different models 1 month 6 days ago #56995

Currently I have a miniDSP 2x4 with Dirac, and have some questions.
  • So far as I can tell, it is analog in and analog out. I have Roon on a Linux server, and it does not see the 2x4, so I have to put it after my DCS Bartok DAC and before my preamp. Which version of Dirac does it have, and is it updateable?
  • If I got one of the more expensive SHD versions (miniDSP SHD Studio for example), I think it can be driven by Roon over Ethernet, and output digital to my DAC? Which one should I get?
  • Since Dirac does major processing digitally, was there any point to spending over $15k on my DAC?

Just to get the names right, a miniDSP 2x4 doesn't run Dirac Live. I assume what you have is a DDRC-24?

Yes, indeed. All the models are confusing.

There is a logic to the names but I know many find them confusing.

Your DDRC-24 has a USB input. Are you saying you've tried this and whatever computer you'd connected to it can't 'see' it?

My Roon is on my Ethernet. I tried an Ethernet to USB adaptor, and it did not work.
