      Product details of the miniDSP SHD

      Note: This product comes with a coupon (€9,50) for one free miniDSP plugin download and a DiracLive license.


      The miniDSP SHD (Streaming High Definition) is a high-end signal audio processor that features DiracLive® audio calibration and an embedded network audio streamer. MiniDSP has lots of experience with user-friendly DSP solutions, and the SHD belongs to the top of our DSP product range. Dirac Live is the reference digital room correction software. The powerful hardware from miniDSP and sophisticated correction algorithm from DiracLive are paired for a perfect stereo room correction system. 


      MiniDSP SHD with Roon streaming technology

      The miniDSP SHD is a certified Roon Ready network player, which means that the miniDSP SHD uses Roon streaming technology. Roon streaming technology makes sure the SHD has a magnificent user interface, a rock-solid reliability, is easy to set up and has the highest level of audio performance, without compromise. 


      DiracLive - the digital room corrector in the miniDSP SHD

      The miniDSP SHD has a DiracLive system incorporated in the DSP processor. The DiracLive algorithm takes multiple in room measurements of your system, processes these measurements and creates the needed correction filters. The measurement process is easy to execute, but requires a dedicated measurement microphone. To perform these measurements correctly, we recommend the use of the miniDSP UMIK-1 USB measurement microphone. For even higher accuracy, we recommend the miniDSP UMIK-2 reference measurement microphone. While setting up your system, DiracLive allows you to model a target curve, so you can forward your acoustic preferences on the correction profile. 


      Play your favourite music through the miniDSP SHD 

      Two analog inputs, three digital inputs and USB audio make an easy connection interface for your favourite signal source. The processed signals are available as analog (balanced and unbalanced) outputs and as digital outputs. The network streaming is enabled by Volumio and runs on a quadcore ARM processor. Volumio is a widely used, open source network player. This allows you to playback music from local sources like USB drives and your local network, but also from your Tidal or Qobuz account.


      MiniDSP SHD with full crossover / equalizer applications

      Along with the room correction and streaming functionality, the SHD also has full DSP crossover / equalizer applications. The powerful SHARC processor features 10 PEQ bands per channel, a matrix mixer, compressor, limiter and crossovers with a roll-off up to 48 dB/octave. This full-featured digital signal processor enables you to build and tune applications ranging from subwoofer integration to a complete 2-way DSP controlled stereo speaker system.


      What's in the box of the miniDSP SHD?

      • SHD audio processor and streamer
      • miniDSP remote V2
      • USB 2.4 Ghz WiFi adapter
      • Dirac Live 3.x license (embedded in hardware)
      • IEC C13 Power cable

      • miniDSP software coupon


      Other miniDSP DSP modules

      Do you have the option to work without analog in- and outputs; check out the miniDSP SHD Studio. This features the same powerful processor and extended functionality, but has digital in- and outputs only. The miniDSP SHD Power is the SHD solution with an integrated, high-end stereo amplifier.


      FAQ about the miniDSP SHD


      What is the difference between the miniDSP SHD and SHD Studio?

      The miniDSP SHD Studio does not have the AD (analog to digital) and DA (digital to analog) stage. Therefor you can only connect a digital signal source on the inputs and the outputs require an external DAC for the digital to analog conversion. Both devices feature the same functionality in terms of signal processing and streaming. 


      I already have a measurement microphone. Can I use this microphone with the SHD and DiracLive? 

      The DiracLive setup is initiated from a computer. If your computer recognizes your microphone as input device, it is expected to work with DiracLive and so with the miniDSP SHD.

      Netter Kontakt und reibungslose perfekte Abwicklung mit Blitzversand. Klasse Produkt!

      prima Gerät. Mir gefällt, das ich nun ganz digital von der Quelle über Dirac und die Weiche zu meinen Boxen gehen kann. Gut, digitale Lautstärke Einstellung fand ich nie gut, aber sie ist die Konsequenz aus der digitalen Kette. Volumio ist verbesserungsfähig bei der Kopplung an den upnp Server meines NAS. Die Kopplung Dirac 3 an meine Apple Welt war extrem schwierig. Läuft jetzt auf alter Soft und Hardware, die nicht kompatibel sein soll. Dafür läuft es auf kompatibler Hardware nicht. Das ist verbesserungswürdig. Irgendwas ist das nicht genügend stabil in der Softwarekombi SHD-Dirac. Sobald meine Audirvana Bibliothek groß wird gehts dann auch wieder nicht. Das muß nicht sein
