I’m looking forward to Dirac ART on other platforms. The technology seems to be a big step forwards. I liked the review focusing on sound quality.

I’m referring to the subjective descriptions of ART, rather than the processor itself. As an example: “Switching off the DL-ART correction filter, everything fades very noticeably, losing clarity and presence. Restoration evoked a sense of "now it's right."”

@Kal Rubinson. Thank you for the wonderful and very easily read review @ Stereophile. I will do the trial period and then most likely will subscribe to the Berliner Philharmoniker for a classical music experience that I am just starting to learn about and enjoy. I was left wondering what the internals look like and dreamed of a teardown...LoL. :D All in all it was a very well organized and painless read of your review.

That's exactly what I always experience after good room measurements. (Neumann MA!, Dirac or manually). It sounds "right" afterwards - you can trust what you hear (more important for mixing/mastering with Neumann but nice to have at home)

It´s always a pleasure to read Mr. Rubinson. This device is, I think, the way forward into the future. It´s still very expensive, but I hope this type of transmission becomes more popular, also including actives that just need a hub, an RJ54 and an electric socket (basically what Genelec does). Perhaps, even a part of the device can be turned into software to buy for a PC and run from there.
