This software package is an infield software upgrade to update a miniDSP 2x4 HD unit to a DDRC-24 with Dirac Live 3.x support. Please refer to the DDRC-24 User Manual to update your miniDSP 2x4 HD (p.13). Note, this package does NOT include the cost of the miniDSP 2x4 HD platform. Instead, this software is intended for existing owners of a miniDSP 2x4 HD platform looking to upgrade their unit to support Dirac Live.

The activation of a Dirac Live license is a "manual" process that typically requires 24-48h during "working hours" from Mon-Fri 9am-5.30pm HK Time zone. Thanks for your patience.

IMPORTANT NOTE: A UMIK-1 is not included in the default price, make sure to select one as an option since 1x UMIK-1 is required for performing acoustic measurements when using the Dirac Live software as per the DDRC-24 manual.

It is really magic what Dirac Live does, soundstage is wider, stereo effect much improved, speakers timing and volume corrected to the listening location, bass is now very well controlled and deeper. I have 2.1 speaker setup. It is possible to connect subwoofer directly to DSP for bass management, but I decided to keep my active subwoofer connected to the amplifier. Works great, now cannot listen without it.
