Arcam launches next-generation A/V receivers featuring Dirac Live® technology

Uppsala, Sweden. Audio technology company Dirac Research announces that Arcam’s latest audio and video receivers, AVR550, AVR850 and SR250, will feature Dirac Live® room correction technology. The aim is to deliver improved sound in home theaters.

The listening room is often the weakest link of a home theater sound system. Recognising the need for a solution, Arcam now introduces the world-leading digital room correction technology Dirac Live® in its new line of advanced audio and video receivers. Dirac Live® for Arcam is an advanced patented technology that analyses the speakers and room and automatically corrects unwanted colorations with the purpose of achieving optimised sound - a process called digital room correction.

- Your listening room is actually one of the most important components of your sound system. This is why digital room correction helps so much in improving the sound quality. We are excited that Arcam selected Dirac Live for their new range of receivers and saw a great match with their heritage and commitment to providing audio enthusiasts with the best technologies to enable excellent sound, said Mathias Johansson, CEO of Dirac Research.

- Dirac Live for Arcam will provide users with world class precision room equalisation with amazingly transparent results, said Charlie Brennan, Arcam’s CEO.

Some of the features of the Arcam AVR550, AVR850 and SR250 include:

  • All the users digital connectivity can be accommodated by the 7 HDMI inputs, all capable of HDCP2.2.
