TOPIC: Using a SUB with SHD Studio

Using a SUB with SHD Studio 6 days 17 hours ago #42633

Greetings! Ihope this is not a duplicate post. I wrote one earlier, but don't see it anywhere so submitting again.

I'm new to the forum and also to using miniDSP. I just ordered an SHD Studio for use in my 2.1 system and looking forward to receiving it. I did not order the full SHD because I do not have or plan to have analog gear - feels like a financial quagmire for a tweaker like me. Anyway, I'm confused about how to hook up the subwoofer to the SHD Studio. My plan is to connect my computer, OPPO 103, and Bryston BDP-1 to the SHD Studio, then the SHD to my DAC, Dac to my Primaluna Dialogue HP Integrated (love this unit!). Right now my sub is hooked to the Primaluna sub line out. It's a powered sub, so I use it's crossover to control frequency and volume.

My speakers are Martin Logan Summit X, so the both have two 10 inch powered subs, totalling four for the system not counting the sub.

I'd sure appreciate your advice on how to integrate the sub to the SHD Studio, or would I be just as good to continue with it connected to the Primaluna and not worry about it?

Thanks everyone! Really excited to get this connected and do some room correction.

Hi Steve

Welcome to the miniDSP community!
If you have a a 2.2 setup, then you'd need to use 2 x DACs (one for main, one for subs) so you can get all gear their analog audio they need.
Here is a great way to get started with an SHD (similar concept, just minus the external DACs since they are already in the box)


Have fun!

Can you sketch how things are hooked up? How are the ML subs connected an filtered?
