The Short answer is MiniDSP has no idea when 2.0 upgrade for Dirac will be released - a very frustrating fact - since we know that 2.0 has been released in some other AV receivers etc AND they continue to release other products instead of efforting the support of existing customers....

Dear both

Unfortunately, it's not that" we have no idea when the upgrade for Dirac will be released", It's simply that it has been our policy for quite a while now to never advertise something until it's ready for prime time.. The industry is rife with announcements, yet it's taking quite some time for reality.. :-( I know that everybody would love us to bring good news, unfortunately it's not going to help if it's not happening.. :-(

Products like Arcam/NAD are unfortunately quite a lot different in that they are not as flexible when it comes to the DSP structure inside (i.e. 7.1/11.2 fixed config). With our many platforms (e.g DDRC-88A can be a 7.1/5.1/2ch multizone), it's not as trivial as it seems I'm afraid.

We've stated already that we're working actively on Dirac 2.0.. We can't say which legacy platform will have support for it I'm afraid.
Thanks for your patience.

I think it’s unlikley that there will be a Dirac 2.0 upgrade for MiniDSPs.

It has taken sooo long to date that there seems to be serious issues with it.

I’d suggest that there may be new products built, ground up, with 2.0 included, but, if it hasn’t happened yet, then there’s little hope for an across the board ‘upgrade’ scheme for older Minis.

A pity. But technology only gets more complex so it shouldn’t really be a surprise.

Why do you think you need 2.0 ? Have you compared it to the current one?
Mostly it is change in the application. From what officiall press says, algorithm is mostly unchanged, besides
"improved stereo reproduction".

Because I have a great stereo system which was markedly improved by Dirac.

So, now that there’s a further improvement, I’d like that too.

I’m happy to pay for the addition of course, but it’s been so long now that I doubt it’s coming.

And although this particular post was about support for the NanoAVR, the 2.0 upgrade is supposedly for all, or it seems, most, of the DL products therefore I commented here.

Sure, but you have to be prepared, that you will hear not difference, but also
there maybe some difference from measurement to measurement with current version,
because what official statement says, dirac improved accuracy of timing calculation...
I am very courious how it can be improved, I would like to read opinion from someone who really compared both,
with multiple measurements in the same condidtions.
DevTeam said they are working on it, so we have to be patient.
