Dirac Live Room Correction Coming to Select NAD Electronics

By |


Dirac-Live-NAD.jpgNAD Electronics and Dirac Research have announced a partnership that will bring Dirac Live room correction to select NAD electronics. Dirac Live is a patented room-correction technology that corrects the frequency response and the impulse response of a room's loudspeakers. We don't yet know which exact NAD models will receive the technology, but we know that it will include models from the Masters and Custom Install lines.

From Dirac Research & NAD
Strengthening its commitment to provide customers with an unparalleled home theater listening experience, NAD Electronics has announced a strategic partnership with Dirac Research, the global leader in platform optimized sound enhancement technology. The partnership will incorporate the Dirac Live room correction solution into upcoming, select products in NAD Electronics' Masters and Custom Install lines.

"NAD Electronics has pioneered amplifier technology for more than 45 years, thanks to its unwavering commitment to innovation," said Greg Stidsen, Lenbrook's Director of Technology and Product Planning. "Dirac Research shares this commitment and has established itself as a true pioneer in room correction technology with their Dirac Live solution. This partnership is a natural fit. and we look forward to working with Dirac to provide our customers with the best possible home theater experience."

Dirac Live is a patented room correction technology that not only corrects the frequency response, but also the impulse response of a room's loudspeakers. As the most advanced room correction technology available on the market, Dirac Live is unique in that it provides true impulse response correction over a large listening area, improving the depth, positioning, and distinction of individual voices and instruments. Using multiple measurement and mixed phase correction, Dirac Live helps audio systems to create a natural, realistic and transparent sound with tighter bass and reduced room modes, in a way previously not possible.

"NAD Electronics' reputation as a global leader in premium amplifiers is both justified and well-earned--their solutions represent some of the best in the industry," said Niklas Thorin, Dirac's General Manager of High Performance. "Yet, regardless of this truth, a room's natural acoustics create audio abnormalities and sound colorations that even the most high-end home theater setups cannot overcome. With the support of Dirac Live, NAD's newest lineup of amplifiers will be able to treat these acoustical flaws and, as a result, produce an even more refined and perfected hi-fi listening experience."

In addition to NAD Electronics, Dirac's audio optimization solutions are currently utilized by other high-end home theater audio and blue chip technology companies in the automobile and mobile markets.
