From the FAQ....


What is the internal latency of a miniDSP?
*
The miniDSP will introduce a small latency(delay) in the signal flow since the signal needs to be processed, converted (AD/DA) on the path. While the exact latency value will depend on the number/type of filter enabled (i.e. group delay), the overall latency (input to output) will typically be circa 1.5ms

I had worried about that as well. I don't think my current receiver allows any type of delay to the main speakers and it doesn't have main channel pre-outs. I guess we'll have to see if it's going to be an audible problem. As it is, the response is pretty decent (attached) so really I'd only be using the minidsp for HPF, which might be easier to do with a simple line level filter.

Edit: Oh! I wonder if it would be as simple as adjusting the "speaker distance" setting?

If it has distance settings for each speaker, or audyssey, it is capable of some delay.

Yeah, and it has distance for the subwoofer, so I'm assuming that increasing the subwoofer distance delays everything else, something like 1.1 feet for every ms of delay you're looking for.

After spending a couple of days fussing with the MiniDSP, here's my response at the MLP.

SPL isn't calibrated anywhere near correctly, but I guess I'd call the volume I recorded this at "pretty loud".

Drops at 40 dB per octave from 20 Hz, but that is some pants flapping response.

It's got a little help dropping off quick, I have the HPF set at 15 cycles..which I may change after some experimentation. I'm still not entirely convinced that even the 1812 overture will get me to xmech unless I get really abusive with the volume.
