Thanks for your patience guys. As per our company policy, we can't say much I'm afraid..
We can only state that in 3-4weeks, we'll indeed have an announcement with a lot more info. Stay tuned. :-)

I’m guessing the SHD series is the announcement? Looks like it will be nice. Anything else on the horizon? Lots on the SHD I just don’t need but hope It doesn’t make the price go up. still hoping for a balanced version of the 2x4HD!

Indeed the SHD is what we implied above... :-)
As for other units, I'm afraid that it's still the same answer as above. We never provide feedback on our roadmap I'm afraid.. :-(
If you need something urgent, maybe use some unbal/bal transformers?

I'm another customer in waiting for a Balanced 2x4 HD. . . . .

Unless you need higher differential voltage, it's extremely easy to create a balanced interface from the unbalanced outputs of the 2x4HD unit.

How exactly do you do this?

How exactly do you do this?

If using an XLR output jack, wire the 2x4HD RCA jack to it as follows. Center to Pin 2, outer to Pin 1, and outer to Pin 3 via a 560 ohm resistor.

That yields a balanced 'impedance' source for driving your cable and your interface and it will have the typical immunity to noise and hum a balanced interface would normally have.
That doesn't yield a differential signaling scheme with the commensurate larger voltages. However, the 2x4HD unit outputs 2VRMS which should still be adequate if interfacing to non-professional (-10dbV) signal inputs. In fact, the lower signal level may be an advantage in some cases because of a better gain structure configuration.

Question...does this mean I can run balanced from my Yamaha cxa 5100 to the minidsp 2x4Hd, and out to by Icepower asx125 with btl mode, by just wiring the minidsp 2x4hd as posted above?

No, not really.
To utilize a bridged-mode on a suitable power amplifier you need a proper differential signaling scheme with active signal on both polarities.

If you hooked it up as I specified you'd get sound.......but you'd be limited to only one-half the bridged voltage capability of your amplifier.

Can you please finally make the masses happy and release a balance version of the 2x4HD?

I dunno about the "masses."

The 2x4HD platform is perfectly fine the way it is. It certainly doesn't need the extra complication/expense of a balanced interface.
Unless you need more voltage, there's no reason for it.

And besides, there are myriad (reasonably priced) devices that can be purchased to convert the unbalanced output, if it's really necessary.

I too would like to see a 2x4 HD Bal version!
