Just read a post on another forum from a respected member stating he is aware of examples of sub delay being changed after Dirac calibration to improve sub/satellite combined response. So it would seem that @Eric SVL 's concerns of needing minidsp or other are valid. If not for the time alignment of the subs to each other then for this reason.

Well, to my shock, I'm told I don't need to set delays and time align the subs pre-Dirac. So the only way I'm going to figure this out is to just get my hands on it. I'll try it both ways and see which gets the best result.

I found an answer to my question about multi-sub setup with the NAD and Dirac.

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/113-...audio-subwoofer-thread-1154.html#post56570216

Rythmik subs use a linear-phase all-pass filter which is suitable for use as a delay control. You shouldn't need a MiniDSP 2x4 HD unless you need more than 16ms of delay, or if you want to load other EQ functions onto it. But you won't need one to integrate the subs like you would with other sub amps.

Just posted in the review thread, but probably should have done so here instead. . . I've ordered my T758 v3 and it will be here next Tuesday. Needless to say, I'm excited to get it up and running.

Hopefully you will really like it... although I did find it slightly more challenging to figure out than the mainstream receivers.

I'm thinking it will be fine. My last unit was an Onkyo pre/pro from 2008, so I know nothing of the more uo-to-date GUIs in newer AVRs.

Hi there,

i own a 758V3 too and have some issues which i would like to find out if other users do have them also..

My TV which is the Sat Receiver and source for Netflix and Amazon Films is connected via HDMI to the HDMI out of the NAD.
The ARC works great, the AVR automatically switches on when the TV is on and the level can be adjusted via the TV remote...
But only until i once use BluOS.
When i stream via BluOS and stop it again, and switch the AVR off, the ARC is no longer working...until i take the power cord off for some minutes...

Does anybody else have the same problem?
Do you have any ideas, hints...to solve it?

Regards
Eric

I don't use ARC, so I won't be much help here, but it sounds like it could be a bug. Be interesting to see if someone slse could duplicate it with the same equipment you have.

@Sonnie, how do you have your NAD hooked up?

I don't think I can with an Epson projector. Of course I won't even have a few minutes to go into my room between now and Christmas... we are slammed here at the shop.

Dirac Live 2.1.2 taking several forumers suggestions into account has just been published and is available online:
https://live.dirac.com/changelog/

Ciao, Flavio

Thanks Flavio. The continued improvements in the UI are appreciated and Dirac, as always, sounds great.

Do you think it might be possible to improve the contrast of the graphs as was done to the levels screen? The 1st 2 groups, which for me are 1-Sub and 2-Center, are especially difficult to see Both use light blues for the SPL traces on the gray background. They are difficult to see on my laptop even when the lines are hi-lighted bold and impossible to see when they are not.

I like the concept of different colors for the different traces vs Dirac Ver 1 though. Maybe I'm just missing a way that user's can change the default colors for the traces?

Yay for that! I will be updating mine tonight hopefully, and have a go at the DTS:X demo disc I've been waiting to play with for a few months.
