Hello - I am new to the world of miniDSP - I ordered a DDRC-24 and UMIK -1 and am expecting delivery on Friday (1.20.2017)! I'm trying to get prepared and not entirely sure I know where to start - please let me know if there is a SIMPLE checklist of what to do step by step from downloading the software (Dirac) to my computer - you know - a simple A-Z on what to do in an easy to read/digest format?

My goal with the DDRC-24 is Bass correction (10-100htz) - I originally had a DSPeaker Anti-mode 8033 (which worked) but failed in less than a year. I was told the DDRC-24 was the answer! My system is 5.2.4 Atmos - the Pioneer has dual sub outputs - but I was running the 8033 out of one - then using a 'Y' to split to the subs. As you can see in the picture the subs are in the corners and equal distance from the main listening position. I plan on running some initial graphs with the UMIK-1 to see if a different location would give better results with no correction - but will more than likely have them at equal distances (unless you guys have a better suggestions).

Thanks in advance for your help and advise!

Pioneer SC-95 Atmos Receiver
(2) HSU VTF-15h MKII subs

Ps. I get that Dirac is a better mousetrap than Pioneers MCAAC - but will have to wait to full Dirac until our new home (and theater) is completed in July 2017.

Maybe read through the user manual?
