This might be a mad idea - please @support tell me if it is!
Playing around with the DSP options in 1.3 it occurred to me that it might be possible to use Roon as an active crossover by using 2 Roon endpoints with Raspberry Pis and App HATs (e.g. IQAudio or HiFiBerry)
On first RPi (left speaker):
A. Use DSP - Mix - on first endpoint so that L goes to both L&R
B. Add DSP Parametric Low Pass to L output and High Pass to R output
C. Connect L output of HAT to midwoofer and R output of HAT to tweeter
On second RPi (right speaker set A assigns R to both L&R outputs, B and C are the same.
The group the 2 RPi endpoints together.
- Is this possible - the bit I am not sure about is whethher A/B work i.e. if, in procedural eq, mix is done first and then 2 parametric eq added with one set to operate on L and the other on R do the 2 parametric eqs work, in effect, on the original L channel?
- If the concept is right (i.e. the answer to 1 is Yes) then is the synchronisation of RAAT devices good enough for this concept to work?
