^^ Sure, fair enough. Just pointing it out for the benefit of all, since I myself was under the impression for some time that this unit only had 8-channel processing.
OK with me, to be sure.

Actually, 11.1 channel preamp out (for 7.1.4 Atmos), and Dirac on all 12 channels. Pretty amazing deal really.
Yeah but those items are not important to me.

Wow, that NAD is a steal... could easily be used as a preamp for a little more than a Dirac 88, plus does more channels!

Re: Audyssey XT32 vs. Dirac Live Listening Comparison

I don't know about Dirac as I haven't tried it yet, but I found that with XT32, in some cases you can improve the dips a lot by playing with the crossover point. For example, in one case, Audyssey set the XO to 60 Hz. After some trial an error, I found it much better at 110 Hz for 0-120 Hz, but 100 Hz got me the best overall result. The editor seems promising but I have not tried editing yet. In my first couple of trails, I got better result running it directly from the AVR.

Re: Audyssey XT32 vs. Dirac Live Listening Comparison

I am hoping for a little advice on how I should get started with a Dirac Live product. I am a 2 channel listener without a sub. I have dipole speakers with on outboard crossover that requires a multi-channel amp that powers each driver individually. I mostly like to access my music via a sonos controller (I also have a squeezebox but switched to the Sonos because I have a second Sonos system outside my main listening room and Sonos allows me to switch back and forth between systems). I most often listens to music streamed via the Sonos app from Deezer, Spotify or Pandora. I have a headless Mac Mini and Amarra with my music collection also, but I rarely access this way because the Sonos controller is so much easier to use. My Classe CP-800 has a DAC with a 192 sample rate and 5 EQ filters per channel for what it’s worth.

I would like a solution that I can attach my various sources to that doesn’t require playback to come only from my computer. It looks like the 2 channel miniDSP is a good way to go, but I wanted to know if there were other choices anyone might recommend, please?

Thank you.
