Is anyone here using HQ Player and a MiniDSP SHD in their system?

Hi. Yes, I'm using HQ Player, but with a SHD Studio. You didn't say Studio, but just in case ...

i'm thinking of doing the same thing - currently using Roon/HQPlayer and wondering how difficult it will be to integrate an SHD into the system. Presumably SHD shows up in the HQPlayer 'Device' dropdown, replacing the current streamer and everything works fine?

Yep, we're assuming the USB interface to SHD Studio, of course.  I'm a Roon user, as well. Roon will see the SHD as an endpoint and HQPlayer will see it in the input pick list (just as you said); assuming HQP is running on the computer connected to the SHD over USB. In my setup, my output from HQPlayer then goes to a HQP Network Audio Adapter hanging off my DAC (fiber eth in, USB out). That's it, in a nutshell. At least, what I'm doing. Only 1 cup of coffee this morning, so hopefully that wasn't too convoluted :-)

So if possible- I’d like to use my SHD studio (w/ Volumio & Dirac) to feed a windows or Linux box running HQplayer (for upscaling) which would then feed my DAC. Is that doable?  I’ve read suggestions about using HQplayer to feed Dirac but that seems to defeat the upscaling purpose of HQP.
