Hello,

Is it planned to replace the 4490eq Dac with the better successor 4493eq Dac for SHD full-featured I/O in the near future?
Is there a reason why it is not installed?

Thanks
Tom

This question already asked in another thread:
www.minidsp.com/forum/shd-series/16507-a...-chip-update-for-shd

I believe the SHD design pre-dates the AK4493 introduction.
Regardless, the AK4493 is just a minor improvement (spec-wise) and it wouldn't make any sense to change devices on an existing production unit.

I suspect if a new version of the SHD (with more channels) emerges in the future, it might be spec'd with a newer DAC.

Dave.
