Great question.. :-) What's your setup here? A multiway speaker?
I guess that you could indeed piggy back a 2x4HD to the analog out (or digital with an SPDIF to TOSLINK adaptor?) so this way you can get your extra 2ch. I'd recommend that you go for the 2x4HD.

My setup is an Oppo bluray hdmi to a Yamaha reciever > a pair of 3-ways all active; and I want to use 2 channels for sub and centerchannel...so 8 channels all together. Right now my speakers run only 2-way with analog xo, since im not sure what to buy.
I mean to use the Oppo as preamp > minidsps > amp >speakers. Any problems in that? I allready have one 2x4hd.

For such setup, I think that it would be much easier to grab something like a 10x10HD or if you want Dirac Live, the DDRC-88A + BM feature. That unit will do tuning of your overall system under one software. That's much better I think than SHD + 2x4HD.

I agree, concerning the 88a, but I just not that keen on a piece of equipment that has 5 years (?)or more since launched...when im going to base my entire setup on this
