NAD Electronics just announced a strategic partnership with Dirac Research, the partnership will incorporate the Dirac Live room correction solution into upcoming, select products in NAD Electronics’ Masters and Custom Install lines.

“NAD Electronics has pioneered amplifier technology for more than 45 years thanks to its unwavering commitment to innovation,” said Greg Stidsen, Lenbrook’s Director of Technology and Product Planning. “Dirac Research shares this commitment and has established itself as a true pioneer in room correction technology with their Dirac Live solution. This partnership is a natural fit and we look forward to working with Dirac to provide our customers with the best possible home theater experience.”

Dirac Live® is a patented room correction technology that not only corrects the frequency response, but also the impulse response of a room’s loudspeakers. Dirac Live's technology is unique in that it provides true impulse response correction over a large listening area, improving the depth, positioning, and distinction of individual voices and instruments. Using multiple measurements and mixed phase correction, Dirac Live helps audio systems to create a natural, realistic and transparent sound with tighter bass and reduced room modes.

“NAD Electronics’ reputation as a global leader in premium amplifiers is both justified and well-earned – their solutions represent some of the best in the industry,” said Niklas Thorin, Dirac’s General Manager of High Performance. “Yet, regardless of this truth, a room’s natural acoustics create audio abnormalities and sound colorations that even the most high-end home theater set-ups cannot overcome. With the support of Dirac Live, NAD’s newest line-up of amplifiers will be able to treat these acoustical flaws and, as a result, produce an even more refined and perfected hi-fi listening experience.”

Nice to see Dirac in more products but I have a feeling this will be even more out of my price range than the Emotiva offering.

Hi Flavio-

Can I ask the big question? Does DL precede or follow bass management in the signal path?

yes he now has 5 sources passing through the NANO AVR DL
Kal had asked earlier about BM. The miniDSP product does not have bass management at all. Which means, you will have to do it in the receiver/processor. Since the sources are typically connected to the miniDSP product, BM happens after Dirac instead of before (which is what I was told is ideal).

Also the miniDSP product does not have any decoders which means all audio that gets there better be in PCM format.
