Dirac has announced a new auto target curve functionality for the Dirac Live solution that claims to “make it easier for consumers to get even better sound quality out of their sound systems.” The Dirac Live solution promises to generate an auto target curve based on a specific sound system’s measurements without users needing in-depth knowledge of room correction.
“Many of the first uses of Dirac Live—more than a decade ago—were in cinemas or high-end home theaters, where experts calibrated and tuned sound systems using Dirac Live. But that’s no longer the case,” said Jakob Ågren, Head of Product Management at Dirac. “With more mass-market AVRs now offering our breakthrough solution, Dirac Live has gone mainstream. However, when addressing this new, larger audience, it became clear that attaining the optimal sound experience should be as easy as possible. Our new auto target curve eliminates the need for manual adjustments, allowing new users to sit back and enjoy superior sound.”
The target curve should reflect the inherent character of the measured system minus the adverse acoustic effects of the room, according to the Swedish company. The more natural slope that results promises a more lifelike audio response and preservation of more of a speaker’s individual flavor, while tightening up performance. If more tweaking is required, the target curve can be manually adjusted with a simplified interface in the Dirac Live mobile app.
The auto target curve through the Dirac Live mobile app is available now, and the company will announce desktop functionality later this year. Currently, Dirac Live-enabled devices from NAD, Onkyo, Pioneer, Integra and Pioneer Elite are compatible with the mobile app. For more information, go to Dirac.
