Topic: Dirac compatibility
I've been researching for a bit but cannot figure it out to save my life.
Let me preface this by saying that I own an ADI-2 DAC FS as my desktop device and particularly appreciate its dynamic range and loudness feature set. So I am somewhat superficially familiar with the device.
I have considered to rework my living room somewhere down the line and been laying out options. Ideally I'd like to "future proof" in terms of feature sets, insofar they are, at all, compatible. A second ADI may thus be on the menu.
The chain, in my mind, would generally look something aching to this:
TV (SPDIF)/BT Receiver(SPDIF)/PC (USB)/... -> RME ADI-2 DAC FS (Pro) -> (Power Amp) -> (Stereo Active Speakers) / Active Speakers
Now my question is, whether a dirac device (DDRC-22D / DDRC-24 depending on the chain placement for example) would be compatible without losing either the ADI's Loudness/Dynamic Range feature (ADI would connect into the minidsp) or the dirac feature (minidsp would connect into the ADI).
Can this feature set be stacked or will one DAC effectively "override" the other? The chain would be kept entirely digital throughout. Assuming they could be stacked, should dirac or the ADI be the preprocessor?
TV -> DDRC-22D -> RME ADI-2 DAC FS -> (Power Amp) -> (Stereo Active Speakers) / Active Speakers
TV -> RME ADI-2 DAC FS Pro -> DDRC-24 -> (Power Amp) -> (Stereo Active Speakers) / Active Speakers
Dirac doesn't hold any particular value to me right now but it may in a few years time so I want to verify whether this is even possible or is a fool's errand.
In case it is a fool's errand (a very a costly one at the very least): I also got a decommissioned raspi 4 laying around, if that seems more feasible but would require some key words/hints to get me started walking down the correct path.
