nanoAVR Basic HDMI audio processor: key features

nanoAVR HD review (April 2015)

I'm really excited about adding a nanoAVR to my AV system; it represents a significant upgrade when compared with the EQ capabilities of my Pioneer Elite SC-55 AVR. Specifically, it allows me to set custom crossover points for my front and rear speakers. It also vastly improves upon my Pioneer's built-in EQ capabilities.

The HomeTheaterShack community and the great team behind it goes at great length to review products. Reading from the lengthy but well written technical reviews from Wayne Myers, we can only guess that it too a lot of time and energy to fully evaluate the product.

nanoAVR HD (Jul 2014)

Kal Rubinson keeps pushing the limit of our platforms with yet another complete review of his experience with the nanoAVR in his budget equipment review.

I can now highly recommend the miniDSP nanoAVR 8x8 for use with high-end pre-pros that lack EQ or have limited or inadequate EQ.
