Dirac Live Auto Room Correction Comes To New Pioneer, Onkyo AVRs
Uppsala, Sweden-based audio specialist Dirac said Monday that its high-end Dirac Live auto room correction system will soon be available in new AV receivers and audio components from Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite and Integra.
Models getting the coveted Dirac Live system include the new Onkyo TX-NR7100 and TZ-RZ50; Pioneer Elite VSX-LX305 and Elite VSX-LX505; and Integra DRX-5.4 and DRX-3.4 models.
The collaboration with the popular Japanese brands, brings the patented Dirac Live room correction feature to high-performing products at more mainstream price points than ever before.
Dirac cut out a niche for itself producing audio room-correction systems for the high-end of the market for the past decade, working with most of the world’s top audio names to earn premium prices.
The partnership with Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite, and Integra, however, opens the Dirac Live benefits to a range of customers that were previous unreachable to Dirac, with the intention of driving greater sales volume.
“Mainstream consumers are demanding premium audio more than ever before. Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite, and Integra recognize that the highest quality can be achieved through sophisticated room correction software like Dirac Live – which impacts sound quality even more than any hi-res audio format,” stated Erik Rudolphi, Dirac’s VP of Home & Pro Audio. “In collaboration with four of the industry’s most iconic brands, Dirac is proving that the world’s best room correction software is not just for audiophiles. It’s for everyone.”
Dirac Live was created with the notion that regardless of an audio system’s inherent performance, a room’s size, shape, surfaces, and even furniture can alter how sound waves travel. This results in sound colorations.
Dirac Live’s room correction feature analyzes a room’s speakers and acoustics to optimize sound quality with patented impulse response technology without requiring expensive acoustic treatments. Home theater listeners get the benefits of premium-caliber room correction bringing more balanced sound, enhanced clarity, improved intelligibility of vocals and music, and more accurate staging, Dirac said.
“We couldn’t be more excited to offer to our legions of loyal customers the tremendous advantages that Dirac brings to our new lineup of AV Receivers in 2021,” stated Rolf Hawkins, Product Manager for Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite and Integra, at Premium Audio Company. “The decades of high-performance audio design Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite, and Integra are famous for are brought to the forefront of any home theater space, thanks to Dirac Live’s unique and industry-leading room correction. It doesn’t get any better than this!”
The components are available at a wider range of AV electronics retailers including national big box chain Best Buy.
