I searched the forum and couldn't find an answer. Are there any MiniDSP devices that (SHD or DDRC) that can run two Dirac Live instances on two different stereo outputs concurrently? 

I'm interested in running two separate sets of stereo speakers that I can switch between for mixing purposes, and I'm wondering if this can be accomplished with a single device.

Thanks.

Option 1, Look at the ddrc88-A. You can create different zones for each set of speakers and when you start Dirac it asks you to select the zone to be calibrated. Each zone can have upto four config too. All your zones can run at once if you want or one at a time if you mute/unmute outputs or turn your connected amps on/off. 


Option 2, SHD or DDRC-24 (And you might need a more knowledgeable member to confirm if this would work)... What if you used an SHD or DDRC-24... Have one pair on output 1/2 and the other pair on out 3/4. Run Dirac with outs 3/4 muted and save to preset 1. Then mute outs 1/2 and run Dirac again but this time for 3/4 and save to config 2. Switching config would mute/unmute different speaker sets and enable a different dirac calibration - could that work I wonder.

Your two sentences above slightly contradict each other. Can you please clarify what the maximum number of speakers you'll want playing at any one time is? Two or four?

That's fair. Two speakers (one pair) playing at a time. I'd like to be able to alternate between pairs on occasion for reference.
