No one is saying that Room EQ is a panacea, Steve, simply that it's an effective tool for substantially improving some of the most audible speaker/room artifacts. In a world where most of us are...

One (presumably untrained) listener in one room? It may be valid data, but it will prove nothing.

Like many, I've often posted, lamenting the lack of properly conducted blind testing - and...

Good and bad are highly subjective, Steve, but we'll have to agree to disagree on this last statement. As just one example, I heard a very fine setup in a friend's living room. Completely...

Indeed. Datasat's RS20 is essentially a consumer version of its AP20, and both utilise Dirac RC. The AP20 and Trinnov's MC processor may be found in production facilities the world over.

Absurdly easy to adjust that to taste with Dirac. Buy an RS20i and you could have a $16K preamp and SotA room correction.;)

It doesn't permit target curve customization, and the degree of improvement when comparing to (user adjustable) Dirac will depend on how different the OP's preference is to the 972's fixed curves. ...

Why the long-standing, obsessive concern about how Trinnov users may suffer from DTS:X vs. Trinnov remapping issues? Are you planning to purchase an Altitude?

I suspect that when DTS:X rolls out and what they're doing - and not doing - becomes clear, this conflation of Trinnov remapping with DTS:X so-called "remapping" will disappear. And, no, there won't...

Bill, I'd never seen this movie until I picked up the Criterion BD, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The byplay between Princess Centimillia and Toto was a hoot. Nitz!

What? DTS claims that DTS:X will do the best job of rendering DTS:X content to an Atmos or Auro layout?

Amazing!

OK by me.


Yup, in an object-only, render to anywhere scenario, Trinnov remapping would be unnecessary. Disabling it is a trivial problem.

Only to establish acoustic locations, actually, although Yamaha does something similar with one mic and a multi-position holder.
