    The 4x10HD is good but how come they never updated it for such a long time. Or did they; and then stop making it?

    I’m talking about one with the miniSharc all in one with FIR filters; analog or digital or USB in and 4 outputs plus Dirac built in?

    That's great feedback - Thanks.

    Don't worry about me. I bought that setup a few years ago. I'm quite happy with it.

    OK, its mini Dsp 4x10 HD and a USB > TOSlink/Optical converter. (High resolution XMOS based dongle).

    The big benefit to TOSlink is that it is optically isolated from the signal source so ground loops and source audio signal noise is eliminated.

    (OK, so now before I am ready to buy, everyone will jump on it and wipe out the remaining supplies . . .) Hahahahaha!

    I've found you can mention the product without actually linking the other source.

    Sweet! Glad you found an option - let us know how it turns out!

    OK - with renewed vigor I explored the data offered here again and found out what I didn't understand and have found a solution - not exactly what was suggested but the concepts are identical - I would post links but every time I do the mods here delete them even though they don't offer the same products.

    Thanks DeZZar, UGG & djg!!

    You know, I whined about nobody making a 2.1 chipamp with proper bass management, and it was the Dayton DSP sub amps I really needed. Now my PC sound is hundreds of watts with balanced interconnects and total bass management. Better than any chipamp I can conceive of.

    Don't give up.

    Remember that old cliche' - "When my Ship Comes In"?

    They said that stuff for a reason . . .

    DeZZar & UGG - I have checked out your suggested solutions/links and find that the MiniDSP stuff is all out of production/not available/no longer supported and that UGG's USB convertor only has one SPDIF output while I need 2 in order to drive 2, 4-way DSP units.

    It seems that this ^ stuff is geared to home theater solutions and with the supply chain issues from over-seas and limited chip-set availability that our hobby is headed for a drought/demise in all respects and a lot of audio-businesses are going to fail shortly as a result.

    At this point I have drivers galore and sufficient amps but lack either DSP crossovers or Passive XO components to complete the builds I have envisioned.

    ASIDE - I had ordered some tweeters recently that had truncated face-plates on-sale and what got delivered was a round face-plate set of tweeters with separately packaged truncated face-plates, instead (Not complete factory made units). AND - No packing slip enclosed this time . . .

    Now I have to dismantle the factory tweeters and install the additional face-plates - doesn't this void the warranty? (No offense to the supplier - I'm just pointing out facts/information concerning the supply chain status).

    What does this say to us?

    I do not think that this whole DSP Crossover technology has matured sufficiently for my needs at this point.

    I thank you guys most graciously for your contributions but I still have to complete the speaker cabinet builds before I have to actually select and employ a USB-audio solution.

    For now, I shall continue my builds and hope the industry catches up to us.

    Thanks again - off to bed . . .

    Steve.

    This also looks helpful - seems to reference legacy products which you assume they would have new options for - might be worth reaching out to them?

    Your technical efforts are admirable but I am trying to keep this a lot more simplistic as I need this setup for developing additional speakers/monitors.

    Thanks for the favor of your replies - keep your idea's coming as I am not alone in my objective.
Working...
