Onkyo, Pioneer, and Integra Get Dirac Live Optimisation Tool
Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite and Integra AV receivers to benefit from Dirac Live.
Swedish audio software developer Dirac has announced that it will be bringing its patented room correction technology, Dirac Live, to the latest AVRs from Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite and Integra.
The room measuring and component optimisation software will soon be landing on the Onkyo TX-NR7100 and TZ-RZ50; Pioneer Elite VSX-LX305 and Elite VSX-LX505; and the Integra DRX-5.4 and DRX-3.4.
Dirac has been developing digital signal processing techniques to improve the sound performance of audio products in a range of different listening environments for over a decade since its formation by students studying at Uppsala University. Since then, the room correction tech has been integrated into everything from hi-fi and phones, to headphones and cars.
Dirac Live's room correction feature analyses the speakers and room acoustics to optimise sound quality via patented impulse response technology. The result, they say, is a more balanced sound, enhanced clarity, improved intelligibility of vocals and music, and more accurate staging. Basically everything you would want from your hi-fi or home cinema system.
This is certainly big news for Dirac as Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite, and Integra together are four of the industry's largest and most well-respected receiver brands by volume.
