1) A computer only DDRC-88BM software application with at least 16 channels, active crossovers, and Dirac Live. This would be quite good as it would allow a full surround system to be built around a PC while being fully active. Plus the way the DDRC-88BM is built allows Dirac Live to correct for each driver individually.

2) A successor to the DDRC-88D with more channels
  • Inputs: 8 x Stereo AES-EBU/SPDIF inputs (16 channels)
    • HDMI input and optical audio input should be added as well
  • Ouputs: 8 x Stereo AES-EBU/SPDIF outputs (16 channels)
Keep the AES/EBU as users with broadcast audio cards can make use of the connections. Additional channels would allow active 3-way L/C/R channels, subwoofer, and surround speakers. Dirac Live should be kept for individual driver correction in active speakers.

3) AV processor for MiniDSP
  • Many users in the MiniDSP DDRC-88A review at the AudioScienceReview forum did not like how difficult it is to deliver all the latest surround codecs to a MiniDSP device. Computer's often lack the codecs needed, optical audio compresses and limits the amount of channels.
  • A MiniDSP device similar to the Emotive BasX MC1 13.2 Channel Dolby Atmos® & DTS:X™ Cinema Processor would do nicely. However, such a device would need to have the correct output for MiniDSP products: SPDIF, AES/EBU, and optical.
  • Perhaps a combination of the MiniDSP DDRC-88D (with 16 channels) along with a MiniDSP AV processor in one device.
