I don't know what DIRAC is (yet), but it seems like Onkyo has the best value as far as wattage goes on their flagship model. I am considering preordering one because I would definitely like a more modern avr, but I should probably wait for things to return to normal and for them to go on sale again. I dunno.

It is among the best room correction you can get today.
Some might say even better than Anthems ARC. Which is considered tops today.

NAD has been using Dirac on its receivers as well as emotiva.

It is far far superior to audyssey, ypao and accu eq, mcacc.

Oh by the way the new pioneers will have this as well. Hope this helps

See my post above.

THis is a game changer for the competition. None of their room correction is as sophisticated. (Except Anthems ARC) which is on par or slightly better depending on who you talk to. Have experience with ARC and it is worth every penny.

Onkyo is the only manufacturer not having hdm2.1 board issues.

Do we have before and after comparison measurements between Dirac vs ARC vs MultiEQ XT32 vs MCACC etc in the same room that can help us quantify what "far far superior" means? Or is that statement based solely on specifications?

If you buy the new Onkyo receivers, don’t forget to activate the HDMI 2.1 in the menu. It is not clear how to do this so I created a short video for it.
