You have to DL it direct from there or the unit itself will take the update like the previous firmware ones?

Update from the AV10 itself. It’s a 19 minute update. But if you want to run Dirac you have to buy the license from the website.

OK gotcha, so take the AV 10 firmware update first then buy a license from Dirac, then when the AV 10 asks for a Dirac product code or some such, plug it in the AV 10?

Yep. There's 2 available licenses. Limited bandwidth ($259) and full bandwidth ($349). Keep in mind neither comes with a mic. You'll need to a buy a USB measurement microphone. You cannot use the supplied Audyssey mic for Dirac.

Yep, might be waiting on the license-buying part and considering the speed at which I do this stuff, that'll be something else to look forward to in 2025.

$7K processor, $349 for a license, oh wait, you can't use it until you purchase a USB measurement microphone? What's that? Another couple hundred dollars. Wow. I wish I could say that's impressive, Wrong word,... it's ridiculous! You mean to tell me that a USB measurement mic could not be included?

Sounds like the whole Dirac deal was an afterthought. Not to mention that it's a lock that the first implementation is going to be quirky at best. It always is. I predict that there will be enough complaints on the forums regarding the missing mic, Marantz will be compelled to bring the AV10A to market, and they will, (It's what Marantz does) it will include the Dirac program and the required microphone.

I guess that's the cost of admission when ascending to the lofty heights of Pre-Pro nirvana.

Guys, I know it sounds like I drank a gallon of hator-aid, but really, think about it, What's the rush? Why couldn't Marantz just show some patience and make sure that the Dirac program was ready for implementation at the time of the launch. Make the AV10 $7499.99 all in, and call it a day? Believe me, when the AV10A is introduced, $7499, will be the msrp. Those who purchased without Dirac would have purchased with Dirac and would have paid less money. It's just a bad look. Just get it on the market and charge the early adopters up when the program is ready.

Yeah, it's not optimal that's for sure hence why that will be a further down the road purchase for me when I get an upgrade bug and don't need any new true "gear-gear." Unfortunately, that's how things are going these days, nickel and diming the customer with pay-to-play functionality.
