Dirac, StormAudio & Perlisten Home Cinema High End Munich 2023 Showcase

Dirac has teamed up with StormAudio and Perlisten to showcase the most high-performing and immersive home theatre demo ever delivered at High End Munich

Visitors to MOC between May 18-21, 2023, will have the opportunity to experience a home cinema that combines the intelligence of the new Dirac Live Active Room Treatment software with StormAudio's powerful ISP Elite MK3 Immersive Sound Processor and a THX Certified Dominus home theatre-quality Perlisten 11.7.6 surround sound system.

According to Fredric Tapper, Dirac's Vice President of Home & Pro Audio, the show's custom-built home cinema room demonstrates how the advanced capabilities and patented technologies of Dirac Live Active Room Treatment can optimise audio output for any system with two or more speakers, in any room, reducing the need for further room treatment.

Tapper told StereoNET:

The home theatre we are showcasing at High End 2023 combines the latest advancements in room optimisation, audio signal processing, and speaker design to deliver a mind-blowing sound experience that will set a new standard for audiophiles, custom integrators, and their clients. By reducing the need for passive tools like bass traps or wall treatments, the new easy-to-use Dirac Live Active Room Treatment software can deliver theatre-quality performance in rooms of any size or shape, allowing more people to enjoy elevated experiences in the comfort of their own home.

StormAudio Processors and Receivers can activate Dirac Live Active Room Treatment following a firmware update pegged for Spring 2023.

Olivier Thumerel, CEO of StormAudio, added:

With the debut of this custom demo system and our upcoming integration of Dirac Live ART, we are redefining expectations for ultra-high-end systems. StormAudio has consistently raised the standards for peak system performance and immersive audio through advanced engineering. We're excited to add Dirac's newest innovation to all our products so all our valued customers can enhance their home theatres even further with spatially optimised output.

Meanwhile, the 15-seat room is set to be the first THX-certified Dominus home theatre ever showcased at High End, utilising an impressive Perlisten 11.7.6 surround sound system that includes the brand's premium S Series In-Wall Speakers and seven subwoofers from its D Series.

Dirac Live Active Room Treatment benefits from Dirac's MIMO mixed-phase impulse response correction technology. As a result, decay times are reduced digitally and automatically, leaving a clearer sound and a larger sweet spot devoid of boomy, smeared bass, says Dirac.

Dirac Live Active Room Treatment will be included, at no additional fee, in all StormAudio units ordered from January 1st 2023, and will be available through a firmware update in Spring 2023. Ordered a StormAudio unit before January 1st? It can be upgraded with Dirac Live Active Room Treatment after the Spring 2023 firmware update and by purchasing a license from Dirac's online store.

The jointly-delivered home theatre demo will occur at High End Munich in Atrium 3.1, rooms D111 and C112.
