    Dirac Live measurements on iOS

    Hey community, Has anyone else tried using their iPad to run Dirac Live measurements on a compatible AVR and export filters? I’m unable to export due to an error message every time. Thought I’d reach out here in case someone else hit the same problem and found a solution. Thanks,

    Connect to Dirac Standalone Processor from another PC?

    Would like to know if it's possible to connect to the Dirac standalone processor, from another pc on the same network. I would use my laptop for the measurements. And I have installed Dirac Live on it. Just unable to connect. Dirac live have an option to connect to an IP address. I tried it...

    Dirac Reviews

    Has anyone seen a quantitative list (e.g. a poll) of user ratings for Dirac? I ask because I am astonished at the difference between what I hear versus what is publicly tossed about by professional reviewers (pundits, magazines, audio stores etc.). Nearly all rave about Dirac (including from...

    How best (which) to DSP for 2.1 setup with SMSL DAC/preamp into Audiophonics poweramp.

    Currently my SMSL SU-10 DAC is also the preamp for my Audiophonics HPA S400ET poweramp via balanced connection. Powered sub is KEF KC62, fed by unbalanced output from SMSL. My room has a floor to ceiling glass wall & patio doors to entire left side. WAF precludes most acoustic treatment. Looking...

    Integrated or AVR - Cinema 50, Onkyo, Other - Dirac, PreOuts

    Hello all. I mostly listen to 2 channel stereo (Classical, Jazz and some rock). I need to drive my new Polk R700 speakers. My wants in an integrated amp or AVR are: 1. Dirac Live built in 2. Pre Outs to add external amp for more power 3. WiFi streaming (I only play music through Tidal, Apple...

    Class D vs tube at the listening position

    After recently purchasing a New (Very Old) Stock Audio Research amp from a store and noting how I subjectively liked it in comparison with my existing amp (March Audio P502 Hypex), I thought I would take some comparative measurements at the listening position to look for any differences...

    AVR with Room EQ and using external DAC

    I've been lurking for a couple of weeks now and thought I'd post. I'm finally upgrading my existing system. I listen to streaming music (classic rock and jazz) at moderate sound levels and some movies. I've been listening to music as an "audiophile-lite" for almost 50 years. I worked as a young...

    Longshot, but I need help, I'm an idiot and broke my MiniDSP with Dirac Live.

    Since you guys are scientists and love audio I'm posting here in the small chance that someone might be able to help. Long story short I tripped on my USB cable connected to my MiniDSP DDRC 24 with dirac live which now has a better algorithm that creates custom target curves instead of giving...

    Dirac Live 3 “spatializer”

    I have only about 10 hours of listening on Dirac Live 3 enabled audio system. My question: is there a spatial audio algorithm running in a Dirac Live 3? Anyone else feel like the spatial audio enhancement that was a feature on TVs of days gone by is present with Dirac Live 3? There is no...

    Kef R3+ sub is this a good plan?

    Hello everyone i did find an used pair of R3 for 950 euros and i am very tempted to bite the apple right now they maybe become my stereo listening setup alongside my 5.1 setup, i could use my subwoofer for the R3, it's an 18 inch sealed subwoofer, a true beast, and i have Dirac live on my...

    Dirac measurement beginner questions

    Hi there, I've been reading ASR for over a year now. Such a helpful page! One of the things it inspired me to is trying out room correction. I have a pair of Neumann KH310 (great speakers!), in a relatively small room (15m²) and positioned not quite symmetrical - one is closer to a wall with...

    Preamp quandary for 2.1 or 2.2 stereo

    Hello, I've been reading for quite some time all the threads I can find about how to do a decent but affordable 2.1 or (ideally) 2.2 setup for music. Source is a Windows tablet running Foobar2000 + EqualizerAPO through a Meizu Hifi Pro dongle - prefer this to previous setup of Chromecast Audio...

    DDRC-24 - Dirac Live on a budget?

    I'm looking into trying Dirac Live, and I'm looking into a cheap way of doing it. For reference, my system consists of a pair of ELAC DBR62 speakers in a nearfield configuration and a BK Electronics XLS200DF subwoofer. Speakers use an Audiophonis NC252MP amp, exclusively fed by a Topping D10...

    Royal EQ Rumble! Objective measurements of Dirac vs Audyssey vs REW+EAPO vs Nothing

    I have always been interested in comparing the results of equalizing my speakers using REW, Audyssey, and Dirac and taking objective measurements for the comparison. I am not someone who is a validated trained listener, but I will also give a brief subjective opinion. First off, my setup is as...
