Dirac seems pretty cool, except for the price!
Please let us know your findings with it.
My old Sherwood 972 that I just recently sold had the Trinnov Processor.
The IMPLIED reasoning behind these processes are that you will LIKE the flat response that they give.
I did not care for the flat Trinnov Curve, so the guys at Trinnov gave me a bunch of other curves to try.
That was sort of cool, however, I found that by simply using my remotely controlled bass and treble controls, I could pretty much get the sound I wanted, as long as the bass room peaks were flattened.
I had HDMI Issues with my Sherwood 972
So, I sent it on it's way, with much sadness.
With my old Yamaha RX V 2700, and just it's Parametric Equalizer, even W/O a calibration Mike to use the YPAO, I have flattened my main bass room peak, using just the parametric equalizer, and an SPL Meter with a test CD.
Then, I use my remotely controlled bass and treble controls, to get my "curve".
I have an old small amplifier, and the silkscreened brand logo has come off of it. I think I am gonna have the words "TACT Room Correcter" silk screened onto it, and stick it in my rack.
Then, I shall invite a few of my audio snob buddies over, to "Hear the TACT"
And, as soon as one says "See, I told you that good room correction works", I am gonna spring the truth on them
