Attended the session on the 23rd Nov.

Firstly, thanks to Peng for conducting this which certainly gave us an opportunity to AB compare the 2.

Personally can hear the difference especially when playing through different scenes where the AudioControl/Dirac combo is sounds fuller, detailed and consistent though Denon/Audyssey is not bad too.

I did enjoy yesterday demo and bro Peng is such a detail person. Nowadays everybody is talking about AI. This Dirac I believe the creator developed the algorithm to manage the sound quality very efficiently.

guys u can test these two clips:

Look out for clear separation of details, will be very obvious. Take note on the noise levels as well, especially the dynamic range and micro details, rain, footsteps, natural tone, cigarette puff, helmet clicks, radio chats, water flowing, dripping, lots and lotsa details this one....

Alien Covenant Jungle scene:

Prometheus cave scene

Have fun and enjoy your shootout!

This 2 files really differentiate the Audyssey vs Dirac calibration of how sound be Mapped to the Top channel.
Thanks for the link.

Second round target 13&14 DEC.

This round May do 3 AVR the same time.
Anyone can loan a 8500 or sell me a used , as is too exp for me to get a brand new use for one day and sell it.

On going , we will have Dirac vs Dirac Live shootout
