    Dirac DLBC now available for Marantz and Denon AVRs - Onkyo and Pioneer coming soon?

    The title says it all - Dirac has been advertising for a while now (and also at CES I presume) that you can now purchase DLBC for Marantz and Denon AVRs. Can anyone at Dirac comment if other brands will get the opportunity for an upgrade via software/firmware, like the Onkyo RZ50 or Pioneer...

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    Update: It's awesome. I got a 24/192 USB-C dongle off amazon and just set up DLBC last weekend for a single sub. It's awesome and I would much rather use it than manually set up crossover, phase, and room position for even a single sub. Immediate improvement right after taking the new...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 Review (Home Theater AVR)

    From what I'm reading, DLBC is still very much worth it for a single sub situation over just plain-jane Dirac, especially in living room/non-studio-like environments. I would gladly pay up for even a multi-sub license just to get it on my RZ50 with single sub. On another note, has the RZ50...

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    Oh I forgot one thing about the apple dongle - it's limited to 24/48. Guess I'll need to find one that can go up to 24/192 if I want it to match the NAD

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    Got it thank you. I'll try an apple dongle clock synced with the d3045 via Mac OS + RCA adapter to sub with Loopback - much cheaper than a Topping. Will probably be years before a clean integrated solution like the NAD d3045 ever gets "2.1/2.2 multichannel DAC" capability if ever. Thanks again.

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    Ah got it, I'm tracking now. So, I would purchase and connect a second DAC, aggregate them into one device in Mac settings, then tell Dirac that L/R outputs from the 2nd DAC are the subs. Then measure/let Dirac do the rest, apply filter and enjoy? That's it? Thanks EDIT - look slike a good...

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    Hmm. I'll be running just one sub. So I would run the R/L sub outs into the 2-channel DAC, which would the rout to the computer for Dirac processing and back to the 2-channel DAC out down to the sub? Thank you.

    Dirac Live Bass Control coming to Dirac Live Stereo This YEAR!!

    I have a NAD d3045 - I assume it is just a two channel DAC+amp in a box, correct? The sub outs are just pre outs of the L/R channels. That means I would be in the same boat as others in this thread having to get a multichannel DAC and run that into the NAD to take advantage of bass control...

    Dirac Live standalone for PC and Mac

    Does the new algorithm require us to re-measure, or re-load the filter at all? I'm currently using a filter with no manual target curve adjustments. Thanks for sharing the news!

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 Review (Home Theater AVR)

    Dirac RZ50 question here: I know the RZ50 does not have DLBC, but I see that it does change all the speaker (and LFE) crossover settings whenever I use Dirac. If Dirac is changing all the crossover settings, including the subwoofer channel, does that mean the only thing I gain by getting a...

    DIRAC confusion -2.1 setups, computer stereo vs. 3.1 AVR, subs, licenses

    Ah, two last questions I forgot: I. For the Dirac microphone positioning, I see that they recommend pointing the mic at the ceiling for multi-channel, and pointing the mic straight at towards the speakers for stereo. Does that recommendation remain the same for the stereo version on a 2.1...

    DIRAC confusion -2.1 setups, computer stereo vs. 3.1 AVR, subs, licenses

    Thank you for the responses! Follow up questions: A. So if I used a minidsp to get the sub channel on my 2.1 setup, Dirac Live would treat it as a third speaker in the mix (instead of treating it as a sub with all the added DLBC functionality), in addition to allowing me to run Dirac via the...

    DIRAC confusion -2.1 setups, computer stereo vs. 3.1 AVR, subs, licenses

    Hey ASR forum - first post after hours of reading through Dirac stuff on here! After lots of searching, I still have some questions. I currently have a 3.1 setup with an Onkyo RZ50, as well as an office 2.1 setup with a NAD D3045+Mac Mini (intel). My questions are: Question 1: If I want easy...
