I dont geti it ... in SHD section www.minidsp.com/userdownloads/shd-series in SHD_v1_7_drv_4_67.zip is still the old Version of Dirac - Dirac Live Calibration Tool v1.2.33.8780 and in SHD_v1_7_Dirac2_drv_4_67.zip is no Dirac included ...

XMOS_Firmware is also the old one v1.10

My first impressions about Dirac Live 2.0:
- A wider sweet spot, my quick guess is an improvement of 150% - 200% more width
- Even better focusing within the stereo image, and even better placement of all the details
- A little bit more sound effects coming virtually from behind the listening seat (I guess an improvement of about 10%), while playing music with out of phase effects (like Q-sound mastering does)
- To me it sounds slightly more natural, less busy, but that can also be the time of the day and how I feel

So, yes: Dirac 2.0 gives only improvements here, in my current setup (a fast and detailed Audionet system, with ceramic Accuton and ESS drivers). I can recommend it!


Can I ask how many measuring points you used?

Now I just need to find a way to transfer the Dirac software to my Macbook as I was using an old Windows 7 laptop that won't handle Windows 10. I've sent an email to support.

Sure! I used 9 measuring points - I selected "Chair".

The manual says you need to download the newest Dirac Live from the dirac.com website - so it's not included anymore with the driver download. And yes, the XMOS_Firmware is the old one, but should work.

I did that and it just takes me to a blank page.

Ah, I see. That's bad, their webserver is using the ancient Apache software in stead of Nginx, which apparently can't handle the load... white pages also here.
I still had the downloaded dmg, so I uploaded it here for you, if it helps: we.tl/t-l7bBjLfDoC

Seems the Dirac will not work on 10.13.6.

It needs 10.14 at least.

So I’ll need to sell the MacBook for a newer one.

But as that’s ridiculous and I only use it as a music player these days, I’ll be buying a Lyngdorf instead.

Goodbye Dirac, and, very much alas, MiniDSP too.

Before you do, check this: dosdude1.com/mojave/ - perhaps you're lucky.

I don’t care it buggy I can make my way through it .


As soon as Dirac site is not flooded lmk please

I’m guessing every mini dsp on earth tried downloading it today and crashed there database


I’ve ran 2.0 today with most excellent results

I really love how well the HF is filtered. So clean and crisp.
