The MAESTRO Quantum is the first sonoro product to feature Dirac’s industry-leading Dirac Live Room Correction solution.
UPPSALA, SWEDEN, November 13, 2023 — Swedish digital audio pioneer Dirac today announced that the new sonoro MAESTRO Quantum receiver will run Dirac Live Room Correction — offering customers premium, high-quality sound across all types of audio genres and formats.
The Dirac Live-enabled MAESTRO Quantum features an iconic design, extensive features, and broad connectivity options — all in an effort to deliver an intuitive, user-friendly receiver for every customer no matter their listening preferences.
“sonoro is committed to providing its customers with pristine audio however and wherever they choose to listen, and Dirac Live Room Correction will play a vital part in accomplishing that goal,” said Mathias Johansson, Dirac Co-founder and Chief Product Officer. “Whether listening to classical music, jazz or rock, Dirac Live ensures MAESTRO Quantum owners will get the best out of their systems, regardless of speaker locations, room size, or furniture placement.”
Powered by patented technologies, Dirac Live is the market-leading room correction solution. It automatically addresses common acoustic challenges that all home audio systems have, but hardware alone can’t address – or takes too much time, expertise, or cost to do so. The software is unique in that it corrects for both the magnitude and phase of the entire sound system including the room itself – resulting in more transparent, balanced sound, tighter bass, improved staging, and enhanced clarity.
“With the MAESTRO Quantum, we set out to create a versatile, smart Hi-Fi solution that delivers the best possible sound quality for everything from CDs and records to the latest streaming services, movies and TV shows,” said Marcell Faller, sonoro founder and CEO. “At the same time, we knew that the rooms our receiver will be placed in could have a significant impact on audio clarity. By making the MAESTRO Quantum Dirac-equipped, we’re able to offer a comprehensive and configurable feature set along with the pristine audio quality we’re known for — allowing the end-user or installer to make full use of the receiver in a way that suits their individual needs.”
In addition to Dirac Live, the MAESTRO Quantum supports streaming services such as Spotify Connect, Deezer, Apple AirPlay, Google Chromecast, and Bluetooth. Other features include access to over 25,000 internet radio stations; treble, bass and loudness controls via the sonoro audio app; and flexible connectivity options that ensure a CD player or turntable can sit front and center alongside the device.
At launch, the MAESTRO Quantum will support Dirac Live Room Correction Limited Bandwidth, with an option to upgrade to Full Bandwidth via Dirac’s webstore. The Limited Bandwidth version can perform room correction up to 500 Hz, and the target curve can be tailored within this range. Dirac Live Full Bandwidth is the top tier of the room correction feature, allowing the system to be corrected across the entire frequency range while giving users full control of the target curve.
