Hi all,

I am getting a 'bad sound' when using dirac. As if the speakers is broken. This is OK when i turn off dirac (no issue with speakers).

My setup:
Digital sources -> Minidsp SHD set at 0.0dB volume -> XLR Analog out to pre-amp -> XLR to Ncore Hypex amp -> Speakers.

In the Dirac Live application i have the Minidsp SHD set at 0.00dB. Microphone is set so the noise level is no more than -24db. I adjust volume on my pre-amplifer.

What could i be doing wrong?

@janterje

I think that the issue is the way you maybe did the measurement?
When performing a measurement, you want to slowly increase the volume BUT don't go to 100%. The volume for the mic shouldn't be at -24dB. That's too low. i.e. you're reversing the ratio..

Best to have maximum volume at -10dB in Dirac live, then have the microphone at higher gain. If the level is still too low, increase the volume at the amplifier.

Hoping this info helps.
