I'm not sure if this is the correct forum or not....
Does anyone here use Dirac Live for 2 channel on your Mac or PC? Do you like it? Any problems or compatibility issues? Which mic did you buy. Lately I've been looking at mini DSP Dirac and DSPeaker 2.0. But installing Dirac Live on my Mac would obviously be the cheapest way to go.
Any comments on direct personal use of any of these products appreciated.

I really like Dirac live on Mac mini. Though it is very good with room correction and improving bass. I don't think it's that good with equalization. It really changes the impulse behavior of the music. I have measured this using Rew and umik.

I have not used the DIRAC version for a PC or Mac, but in principle it is the same as dirac live full for the XMC. That software is easy to use and quite effective for 7.1 and 2 channel. Net you will likely enjoy the results.
You can do a free trial of the Mac software if you like. I think you get 14 days. Do make sure before you start the trial that you have a calibrated mic ready. Many like the umik from cross spectrum for its individually calibrated cal file. If you order it elsewhere, it is a batch cal file. Good, but cs is better and very little extra.
