CEDIA is coming up beginning of October, is it reasonable to expect PAC/Dirac to announce something before Storm's exclusivity runs out?Come October ART is available for any manufacturer that wants to integrate it... so I am hoping that we will hear some announcements soon.
It will be cool to see ART available on more AVR models, especially all models that are capable of basic Dirac already. I get that DLBC needs independent sub-outs, but you're right, ART doesn't need more ports on the AVR itself.Although these only have a single sub, ART can leverage full range speakers - and there is the potential for remarkable performance from substantially more "minimalist" setups (eg: 5.1.4)... But I think that is most likely wishful thinking.
Just curious, while I don't think the AVR needs a fast/capable chip to perform calibration because the calculations can be done by the Dirac app on the computer itself, but the ART corrections may be too computationally intensive for the AVR to "playback" if it doesn't have a powerful enough chip? Is this possible?
