There's been no indication on the Lounge or to any customers that...

The XMC-1 purportedly will have a fully functional version of Dirac with the exception of the ability to have more than one curve. I can't remember if you're also forced to use the stock curve, or...

Is there a preferably tone to play, or is it a good idea to play a sweep (say 10-200 hz), and see which corner has the most overall energy?

Don't I know it!

And my room has more corners than most, because of the odd nooks and crannies and angles (I can think of 13 places where three boundaries meet). My theory is that one of the...

What an odd statement to make. The XMC-1 has an 11-band parametric EQ that works wonderfully. It's not automatic, but quite powerful for folks who are willing to get their hands dirty.

For the Rockboard 60, Are two 6" panels better than three 4" panels, even through they cover less surface area in the room?

I think it's awesome. Competition is a good thing, and if Dirac in an AVP works as well as it does on the HTPC, everyone wins.

That doesn't look quite like either of the mics I've mentioned, but it's close to a shorter version of of the XTZ mic.

The mic will ship when Dirac ships. Units shipped so far do not have a mic. It will be a high quality mic that can be used with REW. Speculation is that it was be a UMIK-1 or the XTZ Audio mic.

It seems odd to me that you're disabling bass management to set your levels. Why not set it where you'd use it, and then turn off the sub or the mains, depending on where you're setting the level. ...
