I am looking at using 2 balanced miniDSPs to feed low frequency signals to the amps driving a pair of passive subwoofers. The miniDSP setup is required as I want to take both the LFE signal from an AVR, and unbalanced signal from a 2 channel pre, and switch between the 2.
On reviewing the miniDSP forum, I find that the miniDSP seems to cause somewhere betwen 1.5ms and 4ms delay. I'm not exactly sure what that means in a real world situation i.e. would this be noticeable, or is it well below human perception? It also occurred to me that any normal active subwoofer may introduce an element of delay, as they take a full range signal and cut it back to the chosen xover point, or am I misunderstanding something?
I know that no delay is the ideal, but what tolerance do we have for delay? Are there any other solutons out there that don't introduce as much delay as the miniDSP?
