Introducing Dirac Unison™, an entirely new approach to sound optimization

Dirac Unison sound optimization technology sets the bar for automotive and high performance audio manufacturers seeking to deliver a lifelike listening experience to consumers.

Uppsala, Sweden - Audio technology provider Dirac today announced the unveiling of Dirac Unison, a highly advanced sound optimization technology for automotive applications as well as high performance audio and home theater systems. Beyond the boundaries of traditional digital room correction and passive room treatment, Dirac Unison precisely unites the output of the speakers in a way that will astonish listeners in any environment.

Dirac Unison uses acoustic measurements to create an active acoustic treatment of the listening space. The technology jointly optimizes the loudspeakers and features a completely new kind of bass management, which is automatically matched to the room and the loudspeakers. With Dirac Unison, the loudspeakers and room act cohesively rather than as individual elements that interfere with each other.

Volvo Car Group is the first licensee to use Dirac Unison, making the technology available in the all-new Volvo XC90 with the Bowers & Wilkins audio system. Dirac Unison co-optimizes the loudspeakers in frequency, time and space for the best possible bass integration and clarity, and enables recreation of individual acoustic environments from certain performance venues. With the touch of a button, occupants can be immersed in the acoustic likeness of Gothenburg Concert Hall, located nearby to Volvo's headquarters and acclaimed by many artists as one of the world's best concert halls.

"We have witnessed a recent surge in interest for advanced technologies focused on the natural and accurate reproduction of sound," explained Dirac CEO Dr. Mathias Johansson. "It is exciting for us to add Dirac Unison to our portfolio of technologies, further enabling our licensees in their quest to satisfy consumer demand for superb sound," Johansson added.

Dirac Unison is Dirac's most advanced sound optimization technology and is available exclusively through high performance audio and automotive manufacturers.
