Hello,
I have just bought two highpower mono blocks for my jbl speakers, and i would like to use a SHD as preamplifire to stream music into the two mono blocks.
I mostly use Spotify Premium, but only on my IPad, and not PC.
Can i somehow use my iPad/Spotify and stream it to the SHD?
Also, can i only operate the room correction part of the SHC from PC, via rge USB in the SHC, or is it also possible to operate the roomcorrection from the iPad?

Regards
Martin

I believe you would be able to stream Spotify directly to the SHD over its network connection and control it by running the web interface on the iPad. Alternatively you could probably stream Spotify on the iPad and connect the USB input of the SHD to the iPad (via the Apple USB adapter).

Not sure what you mean by "operate the room correction", but you need to do the Dirac calibration on the PC, then afteryou have loaded the correction into the SHD then there's no further need to do anything with it, it runs inside the SHD. (Hope that helps - ?)

Hi John,

Thank you very much for your answer.
Right now i have a Google Cromecast, and it has a optical output so dont you think i can just connect the Google Cromecast to the optical input on the SHD and then streame into the system that way?

By the way, could you please explain what advantage i would get from buying a SHD compared to a DDRC-22D, i am going to use this system for only hifi stereo use with two speakers?

Hi, I don't have a Chromecast but if it has optical output, I don't see why it wouldn't work. I would probably try the inbuilt functionality (Volumio) first although I suppose you do need a wired Ethernet connection for that.

DDRC-22D has only digital in and out, SHD also has analog in and out, also USB input and the network port. And you can plugin in USB sticks. Also two sets of outputs (i.e. 4 channels total) which would be good for e.g. subwoofer if needed. Also a display for volume etc. (Not sure if that's what you meant?)
