Great
Would there be a possible comparison with the Antimode Dual Core 2.0?

I do not have access to the Antimode hardware.

Re: MiniDSP Releases New Room Correction Solutions with Dirac Live (DDRC-22A and DDRC-22D_

Any update on a review? I'm considering DDRC-22A to put in between my Emotiva XDA-2 DAC and Emotiva XPR-5 Amp. I mainly listen to music, so this stereo offering is perfect for me. I play my music from my PC via JRiver connected via USB to the XDA-2 then XLR's to the amp. This would work perfect for me to just fit right in between the DAC and amp. That's if I can play music using the pc at the same time Dirac Live is running on the same PC. Does anyone know the answer to that?

Yes, you can do that and you will have a remote volume control but what about using the digital version instead, before of your DAC?
That way you will stay in the digital domain and you will be able to switch between different digital sources (i.e. a CD player)

Ciao, Flavio

After further research, I agree the DDRC-22D would be better. That way, I stay in the digital domain and only do 1 D to A conversion.

Re: MiniDSP Releases New Room Correction Solutions with Dirac Live (DDRC-22A and DDRC-22D_

I got my DDRC yesterday. Just waiting to get the software uplinked. I'm pretty critical about room correction and never liked Audyssey, so I'll be interested to see how this does.

My biggest beef is the inputs/outputs on the box. I got the analog one because it makes it more universally demo-able but would definitely prefer digital. Hoping they will move to a professional analog/digital unit and a home analog/digital unit rather than pro analog and pro digital.

I'll post some thoughts during the week, though the real proof will be in different rooms with subs so it might be several weeks or so til I can really give it some hard work to do. But if it can make my digital active monitors sound any better without screwing up the treble like Audyssy that will be a good start.

Re: MiniDSP Releases New Room Correction Solutions with Dirac Live (DDRC-22A and DDRC-22D_

A couple of questions for an interested newcomer:

How do you 'stay in the digital domain' with the 22D solution if you are using digital USB output from your computer?

How do you hook up a 2.2 solution? I have powered monitors (currently using analog RCA inputs) and will soon have externally amplified (iNuke) stereo subwoofers. How would I connect them to the DIRAC miniDSP box?

Thank you.
