Hear your music – not your room

No matter how much or how little you’ve invested in your sound system, the room will always impact the sound quality – an all too often overlooked fact. At Dirac, we realized that room correction solutions only act as advanced equalizers, smoothing the frequency curve but totally missing the timing aspect. Room reflections and misaligned speakers cause sounds to arrive at your ears with different time delays. These time shifts blur the sound image. That’s why we developed Dirac Live.

Based on patented technology, Dirac Live optimizes the sound with respect to frequency and time. It does so not only in one sweet spot but over the whole listening area, be it a chair, a sofa, or an auditorium. That’s why it’s been adopted by the world’s leading manufacturers of high-end audio-video equipment and praised by audiophiles and music creators all over the world.

What do you need?

All you need is a PC, Windows or MacOS, an omni-directional microphone, and a Dirac Live license. Download the software, connect the PC to your AVR, do the room calibration and enjoy the result.

Recommended room calibration microphone

We propose the miniDSP UMIK-1 microphone as a microphone for use with our digital room correction software. Please note that measurement microphone is not included in the purchase of the Dirac Live Room Correction software.

  • The Dirac 3D Audio does a great job of accurately representing the sounds that come from all directions. What made things really impressive was how deep the low ends were, pushing the sounds of explosions and gunfire right into your ears.
