I think Audyssey has to be done after Dirac calibration. I'm fairly certain that the delay introduced by Dirac is not constant, and is related to the filters that it decides to apply. It may not...

Just to make your life confusing... :-)

I constantly use option 2 with my set up, and in the end, the final channel output levels are always correct.
