How do you split the high frequency out via the Digi?

The routing of data from DSP to outputs is handled by the loaded plugin. For example the 2.1 adv plugin has PlugIn OUT# 1/2 (e.g. sub out) available on I2S_Data_OUT_1/2, PlugIn OUT# 3/4 (e.g. high out) available on I2S_Data_OUT_3/4 These channels can be routed to the SPDIF out using the jumpers on the miniDIGI.
Just take a deep look to the datasheets and user manuals

Sorry for my ignorance, but just so I'm clear on what you mean. The digital signal comes into the Digi, gets sent to the DSP, is broken up & then the high frequencies can be sent back to the output of the digi?

Correct.

I wish I could work out how to do that, I can't get my brain around the possibilities, I need something like a line diagram (not a block diagram) showing how everything is connected, so I can work out where the signals can come from & go to, I get lost in the middle.

Thanks
David

Hoping the attached diagram brings some light into your brain ;-)

miniDSP and miniDIGI are stacked and connected through ribbon cables. Jumpers and plugin configure the signal routing.

hi
may i know which DAC is being used in the miniDSP (2x4) kit. is this DAC having good enough specs comparable to high end DAC systems or should i consider adding external DAC boards?

The internal DACs of the DSP (Analog Devices ADAU1701) are used on the miniDSP 2x4. Specs are quite OK though not comparable to high end DAC Systems.
I would try the build in DAC and optimize the rest of the system (room!, speaker EQ,...) first. In combination with miniDIGI it is quite easy to add external DAC later (each miniDIGI has one SPDIF output).

I would like to see the measurements that proves the "not comparable to high end DAC Systems".

Imo its a waste of time and intelligent discussion to debate DAC differences.
