Dudes like bass. When did you ever hear anyone say "hey, come over to my place and I'll give you a fantastic demo of the treble in my system"? ;)



Oh no - don't lower the bass afterwards! The...

Yes, but Sanjay's logic is unassailable: the sound still comes from the same speakers, in the same locations, so that will have way more influence on what we hear than any subtle differences which...

Well at least that would make more sense than saying that "it's not as great as it's made out to be". ;)

A vewy wascally wabbit :)

Yes - well said and analysed. I’d say the Antec thing was as much use as a chocolate teapot, but I didn't want to upset anyone ;) Mine is in a box in my attic.

Yes you did. :) You said that it "isn’t as great as everyone makes it out to be". So, since there are dozens, hundreds maybe, of people with Dirac reporting how great it is, making out how great it...

That is, of course, true. But it existed as a result of considerable measuring, optimisation of speaker and subs placement based on that measuring, considerable acoustic treatment of the room, after...

+1. I'd say that adding Dirac Live to my HT is one of the most significant upgrades I have ever made. Right up there alongside my dual Submersives and room treatments.

Yes, one would certainly expect the different configs to sound different, or why have them at all? One difference between our evaluations is that you have EQd the overheads whereas I haven't. (Dirac...

Interesting. I am set up for FH+TM, with the speakers within the Dolby recommended angles for both. I too cannot meet the spec for TR as there is insufficient room behind me. However, I have also...

Just leave the sub connected via its LFE input. Music doesn't have an LFE channel anyway.
