I think most people will want to use the minidsp to control volume , if you have

cdplayer--->minidsp--->amplifiers

The minidsp is the only place you can turn volume down or up at once.
One of my amps Cambridge audio 740a doesn even have motor on the volume button , maybe that will be more expensive than having a motor on the volume button , any solution will be good.

Source selection allows you not to have to have the PC on if you want to change source, but that is not that important if cost rises too much.

@ All,
Remote control front panel (IR+Encoder), LED indication and even a new I/O card for the rear... Check out here for more info:
Forum | miniDSP

That's basically what we've been up to for the past few weeks to add value to the 2x8/8x8 boxed unit. For those of you already owner of a miniDSP 2x8/8x8, you can actually source these accessories separately.

More info to follow up shortly as we're aiming at Early/Mid April for the large batch of boxed units to arrive.

Hi Devteam,

well, well, it looks like the dream is about to come !

so now he have (or soon will have) the digi-fp to connect digital gears, an encoder and IR board to select presets and switch inputs...

what next will be ? something like a motherboard to plug (multiple) sharc dsp modules on it ?

I'm putting some money aside from now

Best regards from France
Jean-Claude

While that stuff will undoubtedly be useful for some, it strikes me that the one thing that would be useful for people planning to use it as I am (6 channels for biamped mains, 2 to EQ either flanking subs or surrounds) is the front-mounted USB jack.

@ Pallas,

By front panel USB mount, do you mean this one? Front panel USB | miniDSP
It's been added to our shopping cart help system implementation. Hoping this answers your needs.

@ Randy,
We're now adding it to the online store as we speak. The DIGI-FP is 70USD and the front panel will be combined as a combo.

Stay tuned.

MiniDSP team,

2xDigiFP+2x8/8x8 in a box would be fantastic for XLR Dig in and as add-on option XLR Dig out (for those who want to use ext. DACs).

Keep up the development folks!



Regards,
Kishore

It would be great to have that either built-in or as an option to the forthcoming 8x8 in-a-box. Not essential, by any means, but would be nice.

I have a feeling, with Erich's SEOS stuff coming on stream, you'll have a lot of demand for the 8x8 miniDSP-in-a-box from people doing multichannel audio or home theater systems, who need crossover/EQ (and maybe matrix routing for subwoofers). Especially when people compare the costs of high quality passive parts (not fancy brands, just solid stuff like poly caps and air core inductors) with the miniDSP and appropriate amplification...
