PRICE $2,499

AT A GLANCE
Plus
Dirac Live speaker/room EQ
Highly flexible setup and automation options
Division I sound quality
Async-USB DAC input for streaming playback
Minus
Only one Dirac curve-set at a time can be loaded
Requires personal computer for setup; no onboard auto calibration

THE VERDICT
A noteworthy addition to the high-end preamp/processor ranks, with Dirac Live a fascinating, must-hear plus.


Not sure why anyone buying today, and beyond would spend $2500 on a preamp without Atmos and HDCP 2.2. It's coming to the Marantz models soon, and you can get dirac live if you really want it and a mini dsp for $900.
