High-end audio manufacturer StormAudio has entered into an agreement with Dirac Research, to incorporate Dirac Live room calibration and sound optimizing technology into its StormOptimizer room calibration software.
The room correction solution will be demonstrated at the High End Show (Munich, May 18-21), and will be introduced shortly thereafter.
Dirac Live will become a standard feature for all newly purchased StormAudio processors and made available as a free DSP runtime firmware upgrade to the 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,” explains Yves Trélohan, StormAudio’s SVP for home entertainment and luxury products.
“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 is a patented room correction technology that corrects both the frequency response and impulse response of loudspeakers in a room, offering correction over a large listening area. Once treated, the audio performance of components in a room exhibit better clarity and tighter bass.
“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 for their customers. We saw a great match and are pleased that StormAudio has selected Dirac Live to improve the listening experience even further.”
Dirac Live was recently introduced by Arcam into its AV receivers. Dirac technology is also used in the automobile and mobile markets by Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Volvo, BMW, Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo.
The StormAudio line is designed and manufactured in France, and consists of 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 the processors are compatible with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D. StormAudio is part of Auro Technologies’ Home Entertainment and Luxury Audio Product Division.
