Dirac Live can be turned on and off, permitting before and after comparisons, but once it is in place, you will not be likely to turn it off. In my acoustically treated media room, improvements with Dirac Live were readily apparent across the audible spectrum, literally taking the remaining sonic vagaries of my room out of the sound equation.

Over the last 30 years the music industry has pursued three primary goals: clarity, portability and abundance. Three decades later, impressive strides have been made in reaching these goals – thanks to the introduction of the MP3, the iPod & smartphone, and streaming services like Spotify. However, as the industry put millions of songs in our pockets – thereby achieving its second two goals – it came at the expense of its first goal. The world has been left with an abundance of portable music that can only be experienced at a fraction of quality at which it was produced in the studio.

Now, as the industry explores its next frontier, its focus has returned to its original and most elusive goal of sound clarity and quality. According to The Economist, while producing recording studio sound in one’s living room or through one’s smartphone is a complex challenge, Dirac remains a critical component to the solution.

Published: October 26, 2017

Three experts from AV NIRVANA evaluated ten pairs of speakers priced at $1200 or less with Dirac Live turned on and off.  "Dirac Live reveals mountains of detail in many recordings. Flattening FR can uncover sounds that are being masked in the frequency domain. Reducing the amplitude of resonant peaks helps tame ringing that can obscure detail in the time domain. And cleaning up the soundstage can reveal small sounds between other bigger ones in the psycho-acoustical processing of the spatial domain. Our advice concerning Dirac Live: Don’t leave home without it!" Read it!

"The Arcam AVR550 is one of the most competent and powerful receivers we've ever tested. At the same time it is one of the coolest AV receivers, especially when watching the rest of the playing field. Streaming is minimalist, an interface is no more than a list of settings, and you will not fall in love with its appearance. And yet: a powerful calibration system that even excites inexpensive speakers. Who needs more?" Read it! (Dutch)

"Another technology that seems to be really gaining traction in the CI space is Dirac’s room correction. I heard more company’s touting Dirac this year than at any I can recall in the past. Previously, Dirac was only available at the upper end of the market, found in products like Datasat, Wisdom, and Theta Digital, but the company appears to be licensing its technology to a growing list of manufacturers at all price points." Read it!
