I was hoping this review would address something lacking in every other review I've read so far, but it does not (perhaps it simply isn't occurring to the reviewers to try this out).
While I have a full home cinema rig, that I quite enjoy, I have found myself over the past couple of years (owing to schedule constraints) having to do a lot of late watching/listening while everyone else is in bed asleep. In that same time, I've acquired some headphones of good quality (in large part to compensate for the need for general quiet in the house at those hours) and have enjoyed my music listening immensely. However, I have been searching for something that could partially offset the lack of MCH immersion caused by my use of headphones vs my home cinema rig. When I first read about this amp and its Dirac feature, I was hoping this would be a satisfying solution (and it could be), but no one has described the experience of the Dirac feature on this amp with movies/TV.
I know it won't fully replace a home cinema setup, but is there anyone who has tried Dirac on this unit with movies? Thoughts? Impressions?
