DDRC-88A diagram

The DDRC-88A is the latest addition to miniDSP's Dirac Live® series. With its ability to process up to 8channel of room correction, it is the perfect fit to retrofit existing Home Theater applications (5.1/7.1) with premiere room correction. The platform can also be used for multiroom solutions as illustrated in our application note.

By simply inserting the miniDSP Dirac Series audio processor in the analog signal chain and utilizing the customized Dirac Live Calibration Tool together with the included UMIK-1 microphone, users can perform multi-point measurements in the listening room using a series of visuals for microphone placement.  In-room target curves can be designed and an optimized set of digital room correction filters can be generated and loaded back into the audio processor.

By independently correcting in time as well as frequency domains, miniDSP Dirac Series audio processors affect the impulse response enabling improved imaging and clarity, tighter bass and reduction of room resonances, elimination of early reflections, and reduced listening fatigue.  Just measure, compute and disconnect this out of the box room correction solution.

The DDRC-88A (analog input/output) is now available on our webshop and through our dealer network immediately. Check out our product page for more info.

nanoAVR DL

Introducing the nanoAVR-DL, the latest brainchild from miniDSP to offer the world renowned Dirac Live® room correction algorithm. This palm size HDMI audio processor easily integrates with existing home theater systems when inserted into the HDMI signal path between an HDMI source and an AV receiver. It operates on eight channels of linear PCM audio while passing the video signal through untouched.

The user-friendly Dirac Live® Calibration Tool Multi-channel for miniDSP guides the user through the steps needed to perform a set of multi-point measurements in a home theater with up to 7.1 channels. Users can make arbitrary adjustments to the target response curve, individually or in groups, and also define the frequency range of correction. Up to four generated filter sets can be stored in the nanoAVR-DL for recall via infrared remote control or through an Android mobile application.

Dirac Live® employs a proprietary mixed-phase filtering scheme – filters that both match a desired magnitude response as well as generate a customized impulse response. The audible results from deploying Dirac Live® are remarkable: improved imaging and soundstage; greater clarity of vocals and dialog; smoother and more impactful bass; heightened realism. Simply put: a more exciting home theater experience!

Dirac Series with DiracLive logo

We all love great audio. We don’t all love being turned into measurement engineers so we can get it.  miniDSP has teamed up with Dirac Research to launch the miniDSP Dirac Series - a unique hardware and software combination that includes everything an audio enthusiast will need to acoustically capture a listening room, generate optimized room correction filters, and deploy them in the listening room.

By simply inserting the miniDSP Dirac Series audio processor in the analog (DDRC-22A) or digital (DDRC-22D) signal chain and utilizing the customized Dirac Live Calibration Tool together with the included UMIK-1 microphone, users can perform multi-point measurements in the listening room using a series of visuals for microphone placement.  In-room target curves can be designed and an optimized set of digital room correction filters can be generated and loaded back into the audio processor.

By independently correcting in time as well as frequency domains, miniDSP Dirac Series audio processors affect the impulse response enabling improved imaging and clarity, tighter bass and reduction of room resonances, elimination of early reflections, and reduced listening fatigue.  Just measure, compute and disconnect this out of the box room correction solution.

"It has been exciting to collaborate with miniDSP on this new product series," says Mathias Johansson, CEO of Dirac Research. "We saw a great match with miniDSP given their rapid innovation and commitment to providing audio enthusiasts with the latest technologies to enable excellent sound,” he continued.

"Dirac is well known for the premium audio quality and sound accuracy they have brought to luxury cars and professional cinema theatres around the world. We’re excited to embed Dirac Live® technology into our line of room correction audio processors,” said Antoine Rouget, Managing Director of miniDSP. “With our focus on simplifying the achievement of excellent audio in a variety of settings, we’re thrilled to bring Dirac’s technologies to a broader set of listening environments,” he continued.
