You’d have to be sure that all 9 measurement spots are the same for both the Dirac calibration and the REW measurement for this to be accurate. Even then, differences between the way Dirac works and...

Well, if you want to pay good money for features which won't bring any benefit, that's fine. But you can understand the AVR manufacturers not wanting to go down that road I'd think.



Well, you...

I think we would all like to see it, but so far no mainstream manufacturer is offering it, so that really kills the discussion of it. The 25 grand Trinnov Altitude offers it though I believe so maybe...

You do realise that the X3200 delivers 105 watts (maker's spec) and the X4200 delivers 125 watts (maker's spec)? The 20 watt difference will make no noticeable difference at all for you. To gain...
