 MG 5072

miniDSP is proud to introduce the SHD Studio (“Streaming High Definition”) digital audio processor incorporating Dirac Live®, the world’s premier room correction solution. While physically the SHD Studio is the “baby brother” of the full-featured SHD — accomplished by removing the analog I/O connectors and circuitry — internally it packs the same powerful audio processing capabilities. First and foremost, the SHD is a stereo Dirac Live room correction processor. The SHD fits right into any digital processing path, with AES/EBU, SPDIF, optical and USB audio inputs, and four output channels on both SPDIF and AES/EBU. Dirac Live calibration uses our popular UMIK-1 microphone and Dirac’s easy-to-use calibration tool.

We have also included network streaming over Ethernet, using a dedicated quad-core ARM processor. Out of the gate, we are shipping with Volumio, a popular open-source network streamer. Volumio gives you access to music files from sources as diverse as a USB stick, to files stored on your local network, to Internet Radio and Spotify. The SHD Studio includes a suite of our powerful but user-friendly DSP audio tuning software - ten-band parametric EQ per channel, crossovers up to 48 dB/octave, compressor/limiter, and a 2x4 matrix mixer. Applications range from integrating a single subwoofer to a two-way active speaker. Outputs 3 and 4 also drive the headphone jack on the front panel for a uniquely flexible digital processing solution.
