Must admit my system sounds absolutely aweful with Dirac, and I have the full version. It places the main speakers out of phase, which in turn affects the 2 subwoofers. It sounds amazing without the Dirac. Dissapointed, never had this issue with ARC on a previous Anthem receiver.
I am using the standard issue mic that came with the XMC-1 and a boom stand for the mic.
