The room correction tech will be integrated into StormAudio's products.
StormAudio has announced an agreement with Dirac Research to bring the Dirac Live room correction technology to its new StormOptimizer suite. As part of the deal, Dirac Live will be a standard feature for all newly bought StormAudio processors and will be made available as a free DSP runtime firmware upgrade for products already installed.
"At StormAudio, it’s our mission to provide our integrators and end-users with exceptional sound and service, and our agreement with Dirac enables us to achieve both," said Yves Trélohan, StormAudio’s SVP, Home Entertainment and Luxury Audio Product Division. "Dirac Live has been well recognized as the best room correction solution on the market. Advanced yet simple to use, Dirac Live will be a powerful tool for our integrators – they will deliver a premium listening experience to their customers while spending less time on site."
Dirac Live room correction technology is able to correct the frequency response and true impulse response of the loudspeakers in a room over a large listening area. This allows the tech to improve the depth, positioning, and distinction of individual voices and instruments. Likewise, the process uses multiple measurement and mixed phase correction to help produce a more realistic and natural sound.
"StormAudio designs, manufactures and markets some of the world's finest home theater audio components for an audience that expects nothing short of uncompromised audio quality," said Niklas Thorin, Dirac’s GM of High Performance. "Their decision to adopt Dirac Live represents one more validation of our superior sound optimization technology by a leading manufacturer who demands the very best from their customers. We saw a great match and are pleased that StormAudio has selected Dirac Live to improve the listening experience even further."
The current StormAudio product lineup includes 4 preamp/processors (from 16- to 32-channels), 3 power amplifiers (8- to 16-channels) and a 16-channel Integrated Immersive Sound AV Processor (combination amp/processor). All of the company's processors feature built-in support for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro- 3D.
