I don't think so. But would that be a show-stopper for you?

The miniStreamer integration will still not be plug&play for the same reason as other platforms (USB audio devices typically following their own sampling rate.

Only one miniAMP was tested/stacked on the board. More info about board stacking to be followed in usermanual in the middle of this week.

I suppose they're different?
The plug-in is indeed going to be different and will soon have a datasheet published by middle of this week. Please stay tuned.

Its got a higher sampling rate but I doubt I'd hear the difference.
Hehehe.. It's Ok Theresa, your setup is already perfectly fine with your miniDSP + miniDSP balanced and more input channels than a miniDSP 2x8 could process.. Technology always evolve, so don't look back too much. Enjoy! :-)

@bobkamikaze, it won't support FIR on the first plug-in. Maybe in future revisions of the plug-in/configurations but not sure yet.. Although we have about 3 times the processing power of a typical miniDSP, FIR filters still require a lot of taps (i.e.memory) which in these platforms won't end up being a lot of processing.

For that reason, for the time being, we won't claim that it support FIR until we start to look at what FIR processing we can and can't do. This task is a longer term solution.

Your right of course. The only thing I would really gain is a higher sampling rate which I wouldn't hear. I love the miniDSPs, they have done so much to improve my system. To my old ears they do not degrade the sound quality at all. Additionally I don't have the skills or tools to make a cabinet for the unit.

Hi,
I have ordered one of these together with a minidigi to get digital input. At the moment I use a pc convolver with brutefir and FIR filters in a 3-way stereo setup. It would be interesting to see how it compares.
I have a couple of questions:
1) Would it be possible to import measurements in the future?
2)Is it any possibility to install a display to show volume and active preset?
3)In the datasheet you say 10k load on potmeter. Any problem to use higher values?

/Paal

Hello Paal,
I guess that compared to a Brutefir solution, the internal latency of the processor (200uS, microsecond) vs the 100's of mS from a PC, maybe a first valuable tool if you ever need video synch.. :-) FIR based filters however do have other advantages that IIR based platforms (like miniDSP) do not...

In answer to your questions:
1) Would it be possible to import measurements in the future?
ANS: Yes, we will indeed implement this feature like in miniDSP advanced.

2)Is it any possibility to install a display to show volume and active preset?
ANS: maybe in the future. A neat add-on but it's a bit early to say when we'll add it to the list of todo.

3)In the datasheet you say 10k load on potmeter. Any problem to use higher values?
ANS: No, you could go with a 100k I guess.. but it was tested with a 10K.

Hope this helps,
DevTeam
