Hello,

I have a question, can miniDSP create some like this:

- digital crossover that doesn't include AD and DA conversion
- works up to 192kHz with 24bit.
- FIR filtering
- usb/spdif/i2s in + i2s out
- tas3108(u know what I mean)
- and all options like in 4-way advanced plugin
- ..hm, maybe someone point me to some other better thing?

For such device, I want connect maybe: 4xDAC / 4xWM8804 spdif out... and all such stuff
All this real Hi-End B)

Regards,
Vladimir.

This is exactly what many of us diy'ers are looking for.

Hypex supposedly is developing a unit like this.

All-wheel drive, traction control, and GPS navigation would be nice too. :)

Lol... that's a good one Dave.. Please add Breakfast and waffle maker to it.... And only for 99USD... :laugh:

As to an answer to Kamikaze, who knows what 2011 will bring us! Our product portfolio is no less than 7 products in 1 year so we indeed proved that we can design successful products. However, unlike other companies, our policy isn't to talk about a products for months ahead. The day a product is ready (or few weeks ahead), we'll advertise it... No need to set false hopes...

But to keep things exciting, we're indeed working on new platforms.. What will they do? I guess that we should keep the surprise! (for you and our competitors who are trying to guess our next innovative move... ) B)

The question is, do you need it?

I was involved in a listening comparison with MiniDSP along with DEQX, and two DCX units, one of them with $1k worth of mods. MiniDSP held up very well and we compared the DAC to a loop through cable as well. You could spend 60 x as much and I'm not convinced you would notice the difference, except perhaps where some advanced phase correction was included.

So perhaps you are better off starting with MiniDSP and consider other options later where you are prepared to spend 60x as much.

You can read about the tests on my blog:

Yes, I know about your tests. They good for compare such devices. But If you want Hi-End sound with using some Pass amplifiers and DAC's with external synchronization and other things, so all your components will cost above 2-3k and the system some like Cyclop 3k. So then u can test. Of course, if u can't find any it's funny, but I believe that for precisely testing u need get proper components...

Kamikaze,

If you don't question and test your own assumptions about what is proper and what is high end, then it can get expensive.

One of the things that attracted me to miniDSP is it isn't part of that "high end nonsense." Such things are mainly the toys of those who have too much money and are ignorant. Ignorance plus money equals waste.

Good idea, the feature would allow a quick comparison by listening.

E.g. in 2.1 setup, a user enters a cutoff figure 4 times: L/R, LF/HF.
In many cases it is the same figure.
An option of tweaking it with single input would be neat.

Knob, slider or current form of interface - that's not so important.
Depends much on PC speed. E.g. on slow PC up/down arrows are laggy, slider is good for coarse setup only, and the direct number entry is best.
