Each speaker model, or earphone model, has been individually analyzed by the manufacturer in Dirac's analysis tool. Once an acoustical model of the speaker has been built, the advanced algorithms in the Dirac analysis tool will create a tailored digital controller that optimizes the performance of each individual speaker model. This controller is then shipped with every supported product to deliver a superior sound performance. The technology handles both the timing and amplitude aspects of the sound, or on a more technical level, the impulse response and the frequency response.
Loudspeakers and rooms in which they are placed inevitably introduce coloration on the reproduced sound. These colorations are sometimes very difficult or impossible to remove with traditional hardware design and room treatments. Dirac Live® is advanced patented software technology that analyses the speakers as well as the room and corrects these colorations with an amazing improvement as result. We call this "room correction.
