Just read the news that pioneer had inked the deal with Dirac and this may signal the possibility that the next batch of pioneer AVR may equip with Dirac calibration s/w... I personally think that Audyssey and Dirac (haven't really try it but read a lot of rave reviews in the net) are currently the best calibration s/w for HT at the moment. Who knows, my next AVR upgrade maybe pioneer? But my only concern has to do with the crazy markup of pioneer AVR by out local distributors. We shall see...

A little background of the Swedish company,  Dirac:

Dirac is a world-renowned audio technology company on a mission to invent the future of sound. Dirac’s team of engineers and scientists deliver optimized sound solutions for mobile, automotive, residential and commercial environments through inspired innovation and a keen sense of evolving market trends and demands.

LoL. It sounded more like u upgrading soon? Haha. Not yet. X8500H performance is still quite good for me (for now). But keeping my options open to see if there is anything worth getting.
