Not every living situation makes the ideal loudspeaker setup possible.
Walls, floors, ceilings, curtains and furniture influence sound characteristics and soundstage. The soundstage is also disrupted by an asymmetric listening environment. Setup in a normal living room is not easy.
Room correction gets the best out of your setup and listening environment.
Room correction improves almost every situation in terms of bass response and imaging.
The better room correction algorithms improve not only the bass frequencies but also the imaging of the system. In this system Dirac Live is used.
Room correction gives room for tweaking
Audiophiles love to tweak and to mix and match to optimize the sound of the system. Because the sound of the system is hardwired in the components, the tweaking requires exchanging components, without knowing the end result.
Room correction gives extra possibilities
If you toe-in your loudspeakers you change the soundstage together with the frequency response. With room correction you can change both, separately from each other.
Even better, more toe-in in combination with room correction increases the power response where it is most needed. Where the output is most lowered off-axis, the most gain is achieved when toed-in, when room correction is used.
A loudspeakers in a corner is more efficient, especially in bass. So, when put in a corner the bass is exaggerated. But together with room correction, you can create possible a more even response by activating more room modes, without overemphasizing bass.
