StormAudio is very proud to announce that they are the exclusive partner with Dirac in the introduction of Dirac Live Active Room Treatment. All StormAudio Processors and AVRs ordered from January 1, 2023 onward will include this groundbreaking feature, at no additional cost. It will also be available for StormAudio products purchased before January 1st through a firmware update release in Spring 2023 and will require an additional license to be bought from Dirac’s webshop.
ACTIVE ROOM TREATMENT BY DIRAC
Dirac Live Active Room Treatment—the latest in its family of award-winning Dirac Live features—has been designed to address bass resonance and room decay time and to produce a cleaner, tighter bass experience than ever before.
“Dirac pioneered digital room correction through our impulse response optimization technology found in our acclaimed Dirac Live Room Correction feature,” stated Mathias Johansson, Dirac’s Chief Product Officer. “Now, with Active Room Treatment we are moving beyond traditional room correction to actually reduce bass decay times digitally, without needing bass traps or thick layers of wall absorption.”
Dirac Live Active Room Treatment works much like the popular Active Noise Cancellation technology. It uses the system’s own speakers to actively cancel out unwanted wavelengths originating from other speakers.
EXCLUSIVE FEATURE FOR STORMAUDIO’S PROCESSORS
“Passive treatments for controlling low-end resonances have been around for years, but they’re not necessarily effective and require physical changes to the listening area, so most people don’t use them,” Johansson continued. “Dirac Active Room Treatment is the only solution available that reduces room decay time for a much clearer and tighter bass. StormAudio recognizes the transformative power of this world’s first technology and we look forward to its debut in Spring 2023.”
“We have been a close Dirac partner since 2017 and have always been a pioneer in implementing their cutting-edge technologies successfully”, explains Olivier Thumerel, StormAudio’s CEO. “We were the first to introduce the Bass Control add-on in 2020 and are now proud to be leading again with the release of the new Active Room Treatment capability. Our users have always praised the performance and results of calibrating with Dirac tools on our platform. We are now able to raise it to the next level again in partnership with Dirac.”
COME EXPERIENCE DIRAC ART AT CES 2023
Dirac will be demonstrating the Dirac Live ART feature at CES 2023 in its private suite at the Venetian Hotel. StormAudio invites you to attend the demo, which will use our ISP Elite 16 Analog MK3.
