Dirac Live Bass Control introduced for home cinemas

Dirac has today revealed that Dirac Live Bass Control, the latest feature of Dirac Live, is now available for home cinemas and audio enthusiasts through a range of models from AVR manufacturers.

Dirac Live Bass Control is powered by machine learning and AI, which intelligently co-optimises a system’s subwoofers and speakers to deliver consistent and accurate bass throughout an entire room. 

The second feature offered through the Dirac Live room acoustics product, Dirac Live Bass Control is available in three tiers: enabled, for manual single subwoofer management; Limited, for automatic single subwoofer management; and Complete, for AI multi-subwoofer management. 

Collecting measurements and location data from each subwoofer, Dirac Live Bass Control is able to determine how a system’s bass is distributed throughout the room. It can then identify gaps in the sound waves and distributes bass evenly across the room. 

The new feature also corrects the low-frequency sound waves produced by the speaker pair, so the bass produced by each speaker is in sync with the system.

This means there is more flexibility in subwoofer positioning within the room, allowing them to be placed wherever is most aesthetically pleasing. 

Yesterday, we reported that this technology features on StormAudio’s Immersive Sound Processors through its new Firmware 4.0 release

All StormAudio, Bryston and Focal models currently equipped with Dirac Live Room Correction are now also equipped with complete Dirac Live Bass Control. Following suit in the near future is JBL Synthesis’ AVRs, Arcam’s AVR10, AVR20, AVR30, and AVR40 units, and AudioControl’s concert XR-4, XR-6, XR-8 and Maestro X7 and X9.
