If you want a distraction, take a look inside an Austar box

Give me a hint. Whats exiting. Just a Seagate 160 hard drive. Is there a better way of outputting signal? Don't worry Austar isn't watching to to busy getting rich.

Hehe, I haven't studied it. I looked years ago and remember being unimpressed. I've gone through the same thoughts about this as you. I used to be a digital skeptic, and I've since changed my outlook somewhat.

The apple ipod is what turned me around about Digital ironically enough. When you run battery supply's modern digital is dam good and passive speaker crossovers and eq methods are bad. Its a no brainer.

I can't agree with you on passive speaker crossovers. If that's what you're using (and you know how to do them right) then there are other things I'd look at first.

I agree on the digital source. I had some bad early experiences with mp3s which looking back were probably very low B/R. I'm not saying that analogue sources don't have their charm (and I still highly regard them) but I can enjoy listening to a (good) mp3. The differences in mastering quality and all that led up to that point in a recording can seem greater than the apparent dryness etc that an mp3 can impart, but if I feel like drumming to it then I can be happy.

Yea I am looking forward to my SE amps looking at a vc direct. Thats why I always appreciated full range. Digital keeps that intimate relationship with multi way. Dam I cant do without analogue any longer I sold my tt and 12inch sme in a dull audio period. I am building a analogue mono system again. vintage alnico multi cell horn based just for flamenco guitar and gospel records but that off topic lol

I know the sound you're seeking, wish it wasn't off topic here, I still use passive crossovers in some places.

Hey Guys, don't want to be rude but please let's try to keep this thread on the technical questions about the miniDSP kits.. It will help future readers.

Topics like Austar/passive crossover or unrelated chitchat can be fitted in a different section of DIY audio.. plenty of space out there.

Thanks for your understanding,

DevTeam

Both request seems quite valid to us and could indeed be implemented in future revisions...

Looking forward to seeing your future work!
Great... I look forward to the upgrade as it will help me with my creations..

And once I get this major project for a mfg past me, I'll finally have time to build for my clients and order some more dsp goodness
