Okay, is this a software only solution or is it new hardware? If new hardware, is it modified OpenDRC or MiniDSP or is it an all new platform?

Hi Devteam,

That sounds really exciting. Do you want to issue the price already?
I have to get my coins together.

Best regards

Thomas

Dear All,

Thanks for your patience. User manual 90% done, datasheet to be finalized, pricing and others to be released soon.

Sorry but we want to do it right rather than trickle every detail through this thread... (much less intensive for us). Thanks for your patience and don't worry we're as excited as you are so we'll make sure to put it as our priority! :-)

Will it support digital in/out, at least with additional minidigi type boards? Would love to use this before a minisharc in a high end two channel install while avoiding additional ADC/DAC stages. Thanks!

Have you tested the idea of configuring the 4x10's digital input/output as a digital processor loop with either the Dirac or OpenDRC?

Money is about to start burning a hole here.

Maybe this can be integrated into the HDMI platform???

I assume this is better than Audyssey and that they understand target curves better........

You can download the Dirac Live trial to see what it (Dirac Live) does. May I ask what is the issue with Audyssey target curves? (No personal experience with Audyssey)

Audyssey tried to eliminate the sound of the room entirely with a flat curve at the listening position. So the base just went away and the treble became unbearable.

Good target curves have a slight downward slope with a slight bass rise.

hehheheee.. Trust us, we're working hard behind the scenes to do a proper release including full user manual, full app notes, complete comparisons with what's out there. Hopefully by early next week as it is 90% ready, all this will be posted online. So good news is only few days to go! :-)

We appreciate your support and interest from all of you guys! Thanks again for keeping us on our toes.

Standing by with funds in my "this is so much better than waiting for Emotiva's XMC-1!!" account.
Very much looking forward to adding this to my existing miniDSP stuff.

Dear All,

We're finally at that good stage where we can start showing things off as we've updated the webpage(www.minidsp.com/products/dirac-series)!
User manual will get uploaded by tomorrow hopefully and it will answer a lot of questions to most of you. Thanks again for all your patience.

All parts are now in stock, we hope to start shipment by end of next week!
