Arcam SR250 with DSP for Dirac Live

Arcam has released this as of now unique model that is a stereo amplifier... but also a DSP processor with Dirac Live (96 KHz/24 bit) room correction and has full AVR capabilities for those interested in high quality video also (4K “Ultra HD”, HDMI2.0a with HDCP2.2) with the new UHD 4K tv sets from 60/65 inches up (but are not interested in multichannel)

Re: Arcam SR250 with DSP for Dirac Live

I imagine that the SR250 down mixes multi-channel sources to Dolby2.0 or DTS 2.0. The manual is written for both 2ch and multichannel models, but omits many 2ch instructions.

In any case, this is one serious product! Dirac Live is it's shining glory. When you add up it's pre-amp and processor capabilities, some may actually consider it to be a bargain over having to buy separates (street price will most likely be less than MSRP).

Why would it mix down multichannel sources to any encoded format?

The component's operation is unclear to me even after reading the manual (which is mostly aimed at its multichannel cousins).
