Dirac has announced a collaboration with Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite, and Integra to bring its Dirac Live room correction features to the newest line of AV receivers.
This integration with Onkyo, Pioneer, Pioneer Elite, and Integra delivers Dirac Live, which was previously only available through higher-priced systems, to a wider range of products and customers.
Regardless of an audio system’s performance, a room’s size, shape, surfaces, and even furniture can alter how sound waves travel, explains Dirac, which can, in turn, results in sound colorrations. 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. The result is more balanced sound, enhanced clarity, improved intelligibility of vocals and music, and more accurate staging.
“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,” says Erik Rudolphi, Dirac’s Vice President 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’s room correction feature is now available in the new Onkyo TX-NR7100 and TZ-RZ50; the new Pioneer Elite VSX-LX305 and Elite VSX-LX505; and the new Integra DRX-5.4 and DRX-3.4.
“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,” adds 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!”
