You have to buy a plug-in. Otherwise you can't do anything with the miniDSP.

Shipping was cheap. 10 bucks or so.

Alright good to know. And what is the difference between the "kit" version and the "in the box" version? the kit is $99 and the in the box is $125 is the only difference the fancy box/shell it comes in. what am i losing if i bought the kit version? and what "Rev" is the kit version. the box version come in RevA (<.9v rms) or RevB (2v rms) i need RevB. Do you just program the kit version to what Rev you need?

Kit is the guts only, no enclosure. Enclosure gives some protection against dust and makes it easier to pick up and move around (without fear of touching internals. AFAIK all units are configurable via jumper between Rev A and Rev B.

Re: MiniDSP HOWTO

Hello, I just stripped a length of RCA for my input to my 2 x 4 balanced DSP. Which end goes to the positive and which goes to the negative? Thanks guys.

Re: MiniDSP HOWTO

Sorry for the delay. As I'm sure you've figured out by now, it doesn't matter. But just for minor sanity purposes, I'd connect the shield to the - terminal and the center pin to +.

Re: MiniDSP HOWTO

I've been debating buying one of these for a while. But I'm still not sure what to get (even after reading this thread). I am using a Pioneer reciever and a Dayton plate amplifier. So I assume I need the unbalanced unit. I'm also assuming the 2.1 plugin is the most suited for subwoofer duties (would be nice if mi i dsp made a true subwoofer plugin). Because I'm using one sub only, can I also assume that I use input 1 and output 1 only?
Finally, what is the difference between rev1 and rev2?

Thanks

I am a bit confused by the labeling for the MiniDSP Output XLR side. Shouldn't S be connected to Shield?

(This is for using XLR also as input.)
