dts:xtm is multi-dimensional sound
Creating a lifelike audio experience in a cinema or at home has always presented a challenge. DTS:X makes sound move around you like it would in real life - without requiring specific speakers or custom configurations. Moviemakers can now immerse you deeper in the experience than ever before. The Maestro M9, M5 and Concert AVR-9 and AVR-7 support DTS:X and will bring the mix designed for movie theaters into your home.
dirac live® for audiocontrol
The Maestro M9, M5 and Concert AVR-9 and AVR-7 use a built in proprietary automatic loudspeaker setup function from Dirac Research. Using a PC/MAC based application, Dirac Live® determines the essential speaker settings for all the speakers in your system. It also calculates room equalization (Room EQ) filter values to remove some of the worst effects of resonant frequencies in the listening room. The result is improved staging, better clarity and intelligibility in music and vocals and deeper, tighter bass without resonance.
