... the RS20i has yet to be fully integrated. I had one in my room about a year ago and the improvement over the Marantz (actually 90% of the improvement was Dirac over Audyssey)was incredible. Better everything: bass, midrange, envelopment.
I had heard great things about Dirac, but had never really considered it for myself before. This post makes me want to look into it. If the difference is that clear, it makes it hard not to.

Re: Fourth and Final

Dirac is worth your investigation. If you don't have an Atmos system, then Emotiva has a piece that supports 7.1 with Dirac for about $2000. Another option is to add the miniDSP device that provides 8 channels of Dirac and is added to your existing SSP and it is about $1000.

If you are looking for a piece that supports Dirac and a lot of channels, the price for a single piece goes way up but a number of folks just buy two of the miniDSP boxes and that gets them to 16 channels for about $2000.

Even before the Datasat, I have been running Dirac for 2 channels from my music server. It is FAR superior to Audyssey - which has not been updated in about 6 years.

Check it out. You won't be dissappointed and no, I don't work for Dirac !!!!

Thanks for the quick reply! This would be for our yet to be started dedicated basement theatre, so I should have lots of time to investigate. I was planning for Atmos, but I don't think my budget would allow 2 of the Dirac units. I'll definitely do some more reading.

Some people are just using the Dirac (like I do) on the lower 8 channels, and either not touching the Atmos channels or EQing them separately.

Wow, space galore!
Could only imagine how good it is to turn the volume up until goosebumps start showing.

Very good.

Re: Fourth and Final

I have now replaced the last two DIY subs with 4 Seaton F18's (Master and 3 Slaves) and have hidden them in the front two corners which also serve as corner bass traps. I also have ordered the JVC RS500 to replace my Sony 600ES to gain access to (Faux) 4K HDR at much less than the Sony equivalent. After having seen a side by side comparison of the JVC RS600 and the Sony 675 ES at CEDIA, it was a no brainer. If they were the same price, I would have gone the Sony route.
