Hi Dan, interesting but somewhat worrisome observation, coming from a seasoned pro like you (no sarcasm intended at all, of course). My only experience with room correction so far is with a very crudely set-up, show condition demo, and I heard what I think is a similar phenomenon: singer's voice lost significant image specificity & details. It was not better at all, just more spacious, or worse, simply more echoey. I have a couple of questions please:
1. In your system, did 2 channel Dirac correct the curve to smooth/flat/etc. by measurement, yet sound bad anyway?
2. Or were you not able to get Dirac to yield the desired smooth/flat curve (and hence the bad sound was expected)?
Another question is I would have thought Dirac is Dirac, why would you expect the implementation to be different in in Carl's DL2 unit versus Datasat? If this were true wouldn't we have a can of worms in our hands? Thanks for sharing your experience.Edited by cannga - 6/19/12 at 10:53pm
