After the positive review by Hans Beekhuyzen I ordered the MiniDSP SHD Studio. https://www.youtube.com/watch…

 

The SHD Studio is an ethernet streamer with Dirac room correction. Today I experimented with Dirac. With Dirac off there isn't much difference with my other streamer. With Dirac on the booming bass is gone. It's a big difference. Switching Dirac on and of is just a click on the remote. So it's easy to compare.  Bass heavy tracks like Melanie De Biasio Gold Junkies Dirac is a blessing.

 

Also the mid frequencies sound a bit different. Not the sound sound an sich but with Dirac off the soundscape seems more compressed to the middle and the sides. With Dirac on with f.e. a choir the sound is more evenly spaced. 

 

I've been looking for a way to add digital EQ or room correction without adding a computer to my set up. I tried the new Auralic software with parametric EQ on the Aries. But not to my liking. The MiniDSP SHD Studio with full room correction does sound promising.

Playing with the target curves is quite easy. I don't think the one you're using above is a typical one? Personally I found better SQ all round, tighter bass, crisper sound, more focused soundstage. Very impressed. As you say, the on/off button permits very easy comparison. I found the supplied power supply not good enough. I'd prefer not to have another computer and power supply in but for this, I'm really pretty happy. Kick drum sounds like a kick drum.
