 Upgrade is now purchased and activated directly from the newest Device Console software. Please read from below. 

The miniDSP 2x4 HD can be upgraded to run stereo (two-channel) Dirac Live® room correction for full range correction (20~20kHz) for 199USD. This requires an additional purchase for the Dirac Live license. You can either purchase the miniDSP 2x4 HD with Dirac Live already activated, or purchase the Dirac Live upgrade at a later time from within the Device Console. Refer to the instructions here to upgrade your unit to a DDRC-24 from the Device Console.

To purchase the Dirac Live upgrade, click on Convert to DDRC-24 in the Device Console sidebar:

Upgrade to DDRC-24

Read the information and warning notices and click through if you wish to proceed.

The upgrade is a two-step process: 1. purchase; 2. activate.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The UMIK-1/2 are measurement microphones approved by Dirac Research and not included in the price of this upgrade. Knowing the major effect a wrong calibration/measurement would have on the final results of Dirac Live tuning, we strongly recommend that you select a UMIK-1/2 microphone together with your platform for a plug&play experience leading to best results. Any issues related to 3rd party microphones such as ASIO/USB audio driver incompatibility/Latency problems or incorrect calibration process will not be under our support structure by our support team.

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.
