miniDSP SHD Audio Processor

miniDSP is proud to introduce the SHD (“Streaming High Definition”) digital audio processor incorporating Dirac Live®, the world’s premier room correction solution. A natural evolution and extension of their considerable experience with Dirac Live implementation, the miniDSP SHD heralds a new era in affordable yet powerful DSP-based network streamers. First and foremost, the SHD is a stereo Dirac Live room correction processor. It features three digital inputs, two analogue inputs and USB Audio enable the SHD to fit right into any modern audio system, while processed outputs are available as unbalanced and balanced analogue as well as digital. Dirac Live calibration uses the popular UMIK-1 microphone and Dirac’s easy-to use calibration tool.

We have also added network streaming over Ethernet, using a dedicated quad-core ARM processor. The unit features Volumio, a popular open-source network streamer. Volumio gives you access to music files from sources as diverse as a USB stick, to files stored on your local network, to Internet Radio and Spotify. Finally,  miniDSP have added a second pair of outputs and a suite of our powerful but user-friendly DSP audio tuning software - ten-band parametric EQ per channel, crossovers up to 48 dB/octave, compressor/limiter, and a 2x4 matrix mixer — for powerful audio system tuning in applications ranging from integrating a single subwoofer to a two-way active speaker.

miniDSP SHD Studio Audio Processor

miniDSP is proud to introduce the SHD Studio (“Streaming High Definition”) digital audio processor incorporating Dirac Live®, the world’s premier room correction solution. While physically the SHD Studio is the “baby brother” of the full-featured SHD — accomplished by removing the analogue I/O connectors and circuitry — internally it packs the same powerful audio processing capabilities. First and foremost, the SHD is a stereo Dirac Live room correction processor. The SHD fits right into any digital processing path, with AES/EBU, SPDIF, optical and USB audio inputs, and four output channels on both SPDIF and AES/EBU. Dirac Live calibration uses our popular UMIK-1 microphone and Dirac’s easy-to-use calibration tool.

miniDSP have also included network streaming over Ethernet, using a dedicated quad-core ARM processor. The unit features Volumio, a popular open-source network streamer. Volumio gives you access to music files from sources as diverse as a USB stick, to files stored on your local network, to Internet Radio and Spotify. The SHD Studio includes a suite of our powerful but user-friendly DSP audio tuning software - ten-band parametric EQ per channel, crossovers up to 48 dB/octave, compressor/limiter, and a 2x4 matrix mixer. Applications range from integrating a single subwoofer to a two-way active speaker. Outputs 3 and 4 also drive the headphone jack on the front panel for a uniquely flexible digital processing solution.
