This device as we all know, is almost a must have for bass lovers and BEQ users. At the price, it’s really a no brainer
Pretty decent device and I still use this as well, together with a wifi dongle for ease of use
One may be wondering why do I still need this despite have a lyngdorf MP50
I’ll share why I’m still using it.
Firstly for stereo music, I’m using the Oppo 205 , Sabre dac 9038 pro, purely for 2 channel listening with subs . I use a switch to toggle the signal for HT and stereo listening
The switch is from noobsound, looks like this
It allows me to A to HT, then B to Music from Oppo. It is very easy to AB anything in the set up. I think distributor or reseller demoing should get this, so easy and convenient . (By the way, doesn’t degrade the sound in anyway, I can’t tell any difference with and without the switch)
Now back to mindisp.
To take advantage of the Oppo Sabre DACs and line array subs, I needed a minidsp 2x4hd. So I use my Oppo sub out, into the minidsp. Under profile 1, I use it for BEQ for crowsons. Under profile two. The line array subs are activated to pair with Oppo 205 for music through the rca connections . The best of both worlds. ( line array subs are also connected to Mp50 xlr for HT)
One very important note, let’s look at these two settings below . They both have a +13db gain
The first in blue, had a +10db in output of minidsp and +3db on input , as seen above
The second in red below, had a +9db input and +4db output
See the circled portion. Which one sounded better ? Or there is no difference ? Anyone wanna guess ?
I’ll explain further later
