    Do power conditioners matter?

    Depends for what. Sound? Unless it's doing something really wrong, no. Safety? Depends on where you are. But a $20 dollar powerstrip will do the same.

    Used REW+DIRAC for the first time - advice needed

    It's actually quite good! 1/12 is fine, but you have to be aware that correction should be applied differently if it's low or high frequency, as psychoacoustically we perceive frequencies differently. I believe dirac takes this into account and behaves accordingly, but a lot of people limit it...

    Mini DSP2x4 HD Direc Live, or not.

    My 2c... I had the 2x4HD and then upgraded to Dirac... it was absolutely worthwhile! Dirac is a gamechanger, whether you're a newbie with no experience using DSP or a savant (of the non-idiot persuasion). I do agree that in terms of hardware it's outdated but the jury, I think, is still out...

    Please help me understand: active monitors with / without DAC?

    That would be true only if: a) Active monitors have usb input; or b) Computer has audio digital out (coaxial, optical) that matches the digital input of monitor.
