Available on backordercompare
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 analog 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.
We have also included network streaming over Ethernet, using a dedicated quad-core ARM processor. Out of the gate, we are shipping with 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 2×4 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.

Sub Integration with the SHD
The miniDSP SHD includes not only Dirac Live® but also a full set of crossover functions on its four output channels. One use of this is as a flexible tool for integrating subwoofers into your system along with Dirac Live. This app note shows you how.
Using a Harmony Remote to control the SHD
The miniDSP SHD can be used with a Logitech® Harmony® remote. For this app note, we tried two of the most affordable Harmony remotes, the Harmony 650 and the Harmony 350. The Harmony 650 has a small screen and is easier to set up, while the Harmony 350 is a bit cheaper. This short app note shows you how easy it is to set up!
Using a Synology NAS with the miniDSP SHD
The miniDSP SHD Series support a range of network streaming services, including Spotify, Tidal, and Qobuz. Even so, many of us still have a collection of music files that we want to play through an SHD Series processor. In a networked computer music system, a network attached storage (NAS) may be used for music file storage. While there are many manufacturers of NAS units, in this app note we will use a Synology as an example, as they are a popular and widely-available brand. If you use a different brand of NAS, the general techniques in this app note should still work. However, you will need to figure out the specific settings for your brand of NAS.
Streaming to the miniDSP SHD with JRiver Media Center
There are a number of well-regarded music players that can stream audio to the miniDSP SHD Series over your local area network (LAN). In this app note, we will show you how to use JRiver Media Center (JRMC). JRiver Media Center is available for Mac, Windows and Linux. It is a commercial program with a 30-day free trial. Check out the app note for more details.
Streaming to the miniDSP SHD with Audirvana Plus
There are a number of well-regarded music players that can stream audio to the miniDSP SHD Series over your local area network (LAN). In this app note, we will show you how to use Audirvana Plus. Audirvana Plus is available for Mac and Windows. It is a commercial program with a 15-day free trial. Check out this app note for more details.
