I need approximately +16dB gain to achieve 2V output as the input signal is only about 0.3 volts. I understand the output sliders as described in the owner's manual but I am confused on the input gain adjustment. I assume the Input gain and Output volume as described in dirac measurement section 7.3.4 page 41 affects ONLY the test signal. Is the p 65 dirac live level just a display or is it user adjustable? I do not understand the section 10.2 p 65 routing gain adjustment at all.
My input to the SHD would be from both the analog and SPDIF outputs of an Oppo 203. Currently I use a highly modified Behringer DCX 24/96 with both analog input gain adjustment and analog output volume control. Each has a maximum + 22dB gain. I would like to replace it with just the SHD WITHOUT a separate preamp for gain. My concern would be easily tested IF only MiniDSP had a return policy.

@feathed

It's indeed possible to achieve +16dB of gain. You can do so by combining the gains in the matrix mixer crosspoint (right click and gain at crosspoint up to +12dB) + gain at the outputs faders (+12dB again) so total could be up to +24dB which is a lot.. :-)
