Am I right in summarising your post like this, Don? :

The benefits of a Dirac Live/887A calibration significantly outweigh any potential downsides.

I have to agree - miniDSP must be one of the most customer-responsive companies in the entire AV world (Oppo is another that springs to mind). Thanks for your tireless work on our behalf, Jerry. I am...

I agree with Jerry on the other points. The nanoAVR is a HDMI-HDMI solution and sits between the source (usually a BD player) and the AVR. It is a better solution for those without external amps. If...

Yes, XT32 is very good - but Dirac Live is significantly superior. My views are well-aired on the Dirac/miniDSP 88A thread so no need to repeat them here. But there are reasons Dirac beats Audyssey....

Sorry Jerry. Limey phrase - when you knock something into a cocked hat, you beat it comprehensively. Knock it out of the ballpark.

I am hearing no problems with my un-EQd pair of height speakers. If I had 7.2.4 instead of 5.2.4 I would certainly buy an additional 88A and use the two together to EQ all the speakers, but it seems...

Regardless of any (alleged) audible issues from an additional ADA conversion, the improvement in SQ which DL delivers knocks it into a cocked hat and is hugely worthwhile. As a longtime Audyssey...

You saying the link doesn’t take you to Roger's post either? It has nothing to do with the ppp setting - the unique ID overrides all that which is why I always use unique IDs for links. If the link...

The post's unique ID is 22996795. I cant understand why the link doesn't take you there - the idea of the unique ID is that it is, well, unique, and a link can’t go anywhere else. Odd.

Also, of course, a cylinder is an inherently very strong form factor allowing SVS to squeeze terrific performance out of the sub for less weight, less footprint and less cost.

I agree - I used to have a pair of SVS PC12-NSD cylinder subs - they are fantastic performers for the money. aaranddemann would not regret buying one (or two) of those.

Nice work Jerry. I have to say that if this is how miniDSP/Dirac intended it to be then they are mad. A reading on the Meter should be a reading on the Meter, not requiring interpretation and...

It's a balancing act. You may have the balance wrong for your particular situation. It's worth trying to rebalance IMO before deciding there's a problem. If the sub isn't broken then there has to be...

I concur. Before he tries a new sub it might be worth recalibrating to get a higher trim and a lower gain setting on the sub itself. I'd aim for maybe an Audyssey set trim of say -5dB which he can...
