I don't know how the Mirages will sound with Dirac. It's impossible to predict such things, given the other variables in the equation, like your room and it's acoustics. Certainly worth a try.

I just switched the 88A balanced output setting from 4V to 8V, and based on a quick and dirty level check with my RS SPL, I seem to have recovered the 5-6 dB loss I was measuring with the previous...

I am physically in the room, but I am nowhere near the mic, nor am I in the path from a speaker to the mic. Furthermore, I am always in the same spot when measuring, so I don't think my physical...

I believe I actually mentioned this in the original post. When I test for repeatability, the REW mic is left in the same spot, without touching it or moving it. Measurements are very sensitive to...

Since the PC is disconnected once the calibration has completed, the calibration data must be stored in the electronics of the AS-EQ1, otherwise the unit would not work.

I have never had that happen on a disk, but have had similar experiences when watching my DTV DVR's. I think it is probably random, and unless it happens often, you should not be concerned.

I think you are correct.

I started a couple of threads on the MiniDSP forum, and John Reekie provided some good guidance. Check it out.

OK, I read the product brief. So if the balanced input voltages can be either 8V or 4V, it would seem logical that the open jumper setting would be the 8V setting, and closed jumpers would be the 4V...

I posted on this earlier today. I measured a 5dB loss on each channel. The 10dB is a perceived lower level, not a measured lower level, if that makes sense.

As far as I know, yes. Why would you reduce the input level? It he Open-DRC accepts up to 8V, then the 5V AVR output is not overloading the input.

I had one of the original X1 players, and it would spontaneously re-boot. Sony replaced it, and I received an X10. No similar problems with the X10.

The test tone is from REW's tone generator. The generator output is set to -3dBFS, which is its maximum setting. The AVR MV is set to 0, and the channel trim is set to 0.

You really want your input level on the MiniDSP to be set to unity to maximize signal-to-noise ratio. That is why doing it in the AVR is preferred.
