Dirac live calibration for newbie
« on: June 03, 2019, 13:11 »
Hi all,

Just got time to play with minidsp ddrc88a with my denon x7200wa

i just want to confirm, before carrying out dirac, i must turn off audyssey, set distance to default, level to 0 db and all the speakers to full range?

or should i run audyssey first to determine the distance?

i want the dirac to calibrate for my LCR+2subs

No need to run audyssey. Make sure all settings in avr are set to default or 0. Then run Dirac live calibration. Dirac will take into account distance so no need to worry about that.

After that, you might want to read up on bro Ronildoq thread on how to set house curve to give more impact for bass scenes.

you dont even need the AVR turned on when calibrating for Dirac LCR + subs. AVR can be turned off.

AVR audyssey is final step to do group delay
