Cambridge, U.K.-based ARCAM created the AVR5 to be a high-performance, affordable home theater receiver. Its built-in support for Dirac Live Room Correction means even more consumers can achieve dramatically enhanced sound experiences that otherwise not achievable: a larger sweet spot, more accurate staging, enhanced clarity and voice intelligibility, and a deeper, tighter bass, according to Dirac. The AVR5 also includes support for Dirac Live Bass Control, Dirac Live’s latest feature for managing subwoofers to deliver a spatially consistent bass across the entire listening area.

The interaction between a sound system and the physical layout of a room has a significant impact on sound quality. Dirac Live has been used by luxury home theaters, professional studios, and commercial cinemas for years. Dirac Live room correction is unique in its patented mixed phase impulse response correction technology, which corrects not just magnitude response, but also time domain, which is critical for accurate staging, clarity, and tight bass.

Using patented phase co-optimization technology powered by machine learning, Dirac Live Bass Control supports an unlimited number of subwoofers; delivers spatially consistent, high-quality bass; ensures users hear clear, accurate bass throughout a listening area; and allows for flexible subwoofer placement.
