How's this for food for thought? Wishful thinking and a bit soon but could this be the reason it's taking so long to introduce the RZ1100/3100?
“We are excited about the synergy between Dirac and Pioneer and look forward to delivering superior audio solutions to Japanese OEM’s,” commented Dr. Mathias Johansson, CEO of Dirac. “We anticipate that the integration of our advanced technologies with innovative hardware from Pioneer and the other Japanese manufacturers will establish new benchmarks for audio performance in a variety of product categories.” Johansson concluded.
"DIRAC has quickly become a favorite room correction solution among serious home theater enthusiasts. It's not a stretch to think that Pioneer would eventually incorporate this technology in their AV receivers in favor of MCACC especially since this licensing agreement also encompasses Dirac's own spatial algorithms too. Of course since Onkyo purchased the AV receiver division of Pioneer and recently dropped Audyssey MultiEQ from their AVR's, one would also wonder if Dirac will eventually find its way into their AV receivers too?"
