I've been tinkering with 2x4 MiniDSP kits on my Mac - bought a PowerICE unit because it has all the components I've been building with, but it appears control of the DSP is limited to Windows environments. Is this so?

Currently it is. I believe devteam stated earlier that it's an issue with porting the Ethernet bridge software that they use.

How difficult a task do you suppose it is to swap in a 2x4 balanced kit to replace the board they've mounted?

Hm, don't know, but I think it would be easier to just get access to a Windows machine to program it ;)

If it were merely a matter of one program and control of a single driver that would be fine - and I will do this for the sake of proof-of-design - but the board affixed to this amp is limiting in that it will not allow high pass for an analog external sound source, among other things. There is more malleability in the 2x4 balanced kit - nearly-perfectly designed for my purposes . . . . .

Hi again, the high pass is in the Xover block.

Right - with no external analogue output to send it to. Only the two internal channels that feed the amp. Am I right or wrong about this?

I see what you mean, you want high passed outputs to feed the mains (assuming that you're using the amp for a sub and that the mains have no DSP in the path). You're right, that isn't possible.
