Leaving aside the merits of the approach, it's more a "sweep" than a "tone." The tone generator can be used to make sweeps.

Honest question: who?
Denon's with Audyssey, and Marantz is just dressed up and marked up Denon.
Anthem spent a lot of time and money developing their excellent ARC package, so why would they abandon it when it works so well?
Pioneer, it seems, is getting out of the business.
Onyko's busy cutting costs, not adding them.
Sony, do they ever use third party anything when they don't absolutely have to?
Arcam, based on their public comments, seems uninterested in developing the intellectual or operational horsepower to handle anything that's a real advance.
Cambridge Audio...see Arcam.
Parasound isn't in the reasonably-priced pre-pro or high-end AVR market.
Rotel...are they even still around at all?
NAD? OK, there's a legitimate contender that makes modern products and buys sophisticated IP (Hypex amps, etc).
So, basically if Dirac wanted to be in this market they had two options, and for whatever reason either NAD wasn't interested or Dirac picked Emotiva over NAD.
