It pushed Heat our of its place I my books as best movie of that sub genre
I've only seen it once and it was before i had my dedicated theater room and before Minidsp and BEQ, so i look forward to it again.

As an aside, those who play video games and have an Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is only $1 for 1 month right now and they have Forza Horizon 4 and some of the cars sound like this! It's definitely the best and funnest car game I've ever played!
I agree Forza Horizon 4 has awesome bass coming from some of those cars! 2 other games i recommend for bass lovers who game is Call Of Duty Modern Warfare, and Shadow Of a Tomb Raider.

Are you able to control BEQ with minidsp wifi device with an app or other device or pretty much this just saves connecting with USB cord to laptop?

Don’t you have 20 hdmi chords in your sound bar rig? What’s wrong with one more cable ?

Alright....so.....I *may* be finally contemplating jumping on the BEQ train.

First question: does the gain added per each movie by the MiniDSP affect Dirac EQ applied by my receiver or affect the EQ added by my Funks internal DSP (basically extra gain already applied in the low end)?

Basically I'm just wondering if it is as simple as adding the Mini DSP into the chain between the receiver and the sub without having to worry about it messing with EQs or boosts already in place. So that if post Dirac I have a flat response down to 16Hz the gains applied for each movie isn't going to suddenly cause the sub amp to hit its limit by running too hot with even more gain added?

Yes I do, but they don't run accross the floor to my listening position.

Is it that hard to lay out what the device does? When I test I have to use USB cord to send test tones (hdmi outlet busted on my laptop), so I don't think this helps me there since the connection is named USB.

Frankly with my setup I'm about another USB cord extender away from just reaching down and plugging in cord without having a tripping hazard.

I only use streaming for titles that cant be bought on disc.

Just a tad excessive Pio?

The silver lining to my cloud of gain is I don't have any excessive gain or watts.

Just watched TMNT (2014) with the updated BEQ. Its my 2nd time watching this movie, i saw it in theaters when it came out.

I found this movie to have too much mid-bass. From about 38-52hz it goes up to about -12. It was just too much, sounded too bloated. It'd be different if it was used just a few times throughout the movie but it feels like it was used every chance they had instead.

I think this movie might sound better with the 38-52hz down about 6db, so around -18, idk just my opinion.

This movie was hilarious tho, i forgot how funny it was. It def had that Transformers/Power Rangers vibe that Michael Bay is known for.

Yeah, plus the Android app to change slots.

You will be fine with just adding the MiniDSP in. Depending on how Hot you run your subwoofers you may want to tune it for every movie to be like Hurricane Heist or War of the Worlds. As long as you can handle full bandwidth movies like that your good to go.

With my current setup using a slight house curve (only +3dB) in Dirac, I can watch the Pod Emergence scene near reference without issue (and this is the DVD version audio which I believe is full bandwidth).

This mean I should be fine to add in a Mini HD into the mix and apply BEQ for necessary titles without issue?

If I do this, I'd definitely get the Wifi adapter to use the XML one click option from my sofa. Is it really just that dang simple then? I just connect to the Mini from my laptop WiFi and click the title in the current XML list to load it and voila? Then just make sure to select a blank (bypass) config when I'm done for regular use or for full bandwidth titles?

Yes, yes and yes. A long usb cable extender is cheaper. If you don’t mind one chord. Follow the instructions on page one to get GITHUB and you refresh it once a week to get the new BEQ’s.


So easy a caveman could do it

There is one potential caveat with adding it to the chain purely for BEQ and leaving existing eq/room correction in place. The MiniDSP 2x4 HD will add some delay, about 3ms. That could mess with sub/main integration in some setups. I personally have to do the sub distance tweak to avoid some significant sub/mains cancellation. When I first added my miniDSP I left my room eq in place until I could find the time to time align subs on miniDSP and re-run Audyssey without kids around as I just as I wanted to quickly get going with DEQ. However I wound up having to run some REW sweeps to fix my sub distances even before that as it was off.

So easy a caveman could do it
I don't mind paying more for the WiFi option. No easy way to run a cord to my couch and I don't want to have to plug it in to my laptop everytime.

The final question before I jump in: do I actually need the HD or is the standard perfectly fine for purely BEQ use (no house curve or any of that, the receiver/Dirac will handle everything else) without affecting sound quality?

And if standard is fine, does the WiFi adapter work with the standard Mini? The FAQ guide makes it seem like it only works with the HD but the MiniDSP site doesn't specify such a restriction.

Thanks. I just saw in the FAQ that adding it requires a new EQ run (whether audyssey, Dirac, etc) because of this, which I'm fine with.

HD only!

...also there's several other reasons to choose the HD unit over the non-HD, all of which have been covered on page 1

Thanks!

I downloaded the most recent file from the repository but it only mentioned DD+ Atmos. I am using it anyways.

Thanks! Good thing I didn't pull the trigger on upgrading my PC motherboard. This is probably money better well spent.

Lastly, while my 4k UHD movie rips are not compatible for the "MKV editing option" (as they are all folder rips), is adding the necessary BEQ boosts to my existing MKV Blu-ray rips (that aren't Atmos/DTS X) pretty simple? Or is it probably just easier to still do the XML option with the MiniDSP for those as well?
