Bluesound to Make Select Devices Dirac Live Ready

Integration will bring industry-leading room correction capabilities to select Bluesound devices with the purchase of a microphone accessory kit and a license.

Dirac and Bluesound have announced a collaboration to integrate Dirac’s Dirac Live Room Correction solution into select Bluesound devices.

Select Bluesound devices will now feature Dirac room correction software.

According to Fredric Tapper, Dirac’s VP of home and pro audio, this first-time collaboration with Bluesound represents a significant milestone for the company as it continues to strengthen its position as the industry’s leading provider of digital room correction technologies — both in the high-end home theater market and now in the multiroom wireless streaming market.

“The ways in which consumers listen to music at home are changing; while dedicated listening rooms were once the norm, the whole house is now the listening space — the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, basements, and more,” states Tapper. “However, this expanded definition of listening space has created new challenges in terms of high-fidelity audio reproduction, as open-air spaces with dynamic room sizes and dimensions can significantly impact sound quality. This industry-first collaboration with Bluesound resolves these challenges by delivering high-fidelity audio across any room, or any listening space, irrespective of its complexities.”

Powered by patented technologies, Dirac Live automatically addresses common acoustic challenges that all home audio systems have, but hardware alone can’t address — or takes too much time, expertise, or cost to do so.

The software is unique in that it corrects for both the magnitude and phase of the entire sound system, including the room itself, resulting in more transparent, balanced sound, tighter bass, improved staging, and enhanced clarity.

Future Bluesound devices will come ready to handle Dirac Live once a Dirac Live license is purchased through the Dirac website. Backward compatibility to existing Bluesound devices is also being studied and roll-out plans for eligible models will be shared at a later date. A calibration kit will be made available for sale on the website when the first enabled Bluesound player becomes available.
