The 2x4 is not doing any EQ. The only processing it does is to set the delays for the subs. I tried using REW-generated EQ filters in the 2x4 before running Dirac. After measuring the results both with EQ and without EQ in the 2x4, I did not see any difference (i.e. the 2x4 EQ was not adding anything). In the interests of keeping things as simple as possible, I disabled the 2x4 EQ.

Wondering how it works...
Yes, Audyssey is disabled in my 8802, trims and delays are all set to zero, and all speakers are set to "large" (the 88A has a more sophisticated bass management capability). All trims and delays are set by Dirac Live (in the same way that Audyssey sets trims and delays).

Thanks for the details

Nice good to learn that something like that is available. When I click the pioneer link at the bottom of the Dirac page it takes me to a Japanese site. Wondering what AVRs have Dirac built in as well

The advantage of an outboard solution is that you can upgrade AVR's to take advantage of new technologies, yet retain the same room correction technology.

Only concern I have with Dirac Live is overall cost/complexity of setup. Up til now even Audyssey XT32 was out of reach, but that Denon AVR-3300W is just close enough to the Audyssey XT AVRs I was comfortable spending money on to be worth the money. I'm currently using YPAO on a 2013 Yamaha AVR that was the lowest model in their entire range at the time. It was worth $250-$300 MSRP at the time, part of an entry level HTiB. That version of YPAO is good enough for the basics (setting trims, delay, and bass management) but it's auto PEQ has crappy sound quality despite marginal improvements in measured frequency response, particularly with treble.

The MiniDSP 2x4 unbalanced handles sub EQ more than well enough for me, but I need a better room correction solution for my 5 speaker channels.

Dirac Live would be ideal but I don't think Audyssey XT32 would disappoint, especially coming from my Yamaha HTR-3066.

Emotiva XMC-1 Pre/Pro has Dirac Live buit-in. I haven't seen any AVR's yet with Dirac Live.

Arcam 550 and 850
which also has Dirac EQ heights
