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.

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

Hi guys,

I hate asking noobish questions, but I've been racking my brain all day and the more I read the more things get cloudy! :ponder:

I would like 4 independent delays, but don't want to give up any subwoofer EQ adjustments. I need my 10hz EQing lol. My eight 18's are sealed. I have everything wired up with 4 XLR's to 2 EP4000's.

What plugin would I need for my balanced 2x4?

Thanks

If you have one subwoofer feed , that you want to feed to four amp channels with different delays, you need the four-way crossover plugin. (Just turn off the crossover filters).

Thanks much :T

I take it I'm not giving up anything from a subwoofer EQ standpoint based off the summary table on MiniDSP's website? Hopefully nothing substantial. I see the 4-way is missing "Copy EQ feature". I'm guessing that's just a convenience feature?

If my configuration changes in the future could I clone all for independent channels to act identically (as one)? Say for a mono front wall line array.

There's an EQ bank (6 PEQs) on the input side of the crossover, and an EQ bank on the output side of the crossover (6 PEQs per channel). Any EQ you put in on the input side will apply to all output channels; EQ that you put on the output side will apply to only that output channel. So depending on where you put the EQ, it will affect either all subs or just one.

Quick question. I have a second HDMI connector for my desktop. I can use a 15ft HDMI cable to my Marantz SR7008. Could I use the front HDMI(aux) to connect the HDMI to the desktop, and then proceed with the REW set up. Thanks Russ
