For most it takes many years to learn what's important in a speaker design. Much by trying and failing along the way. And many never learn it well because they don't understand psychoacoustics and what really matters, and focus wrongly too much on areas like drivers, cabinet building, crossover parts, etc. (not saying these are unimportant though).

The preferably beamwidth depends on areas like listening area of the room (one listening place or several), room layout (i.e. narrow vs wide), and whether the desire is for listening without early arriving lateral reflections or with.
Basically too much to go into here.

Omholt - how do we get the language switcher to work on your website? I’ve tried on two different OS - MSW7, and iOS11 on my iPad.

Since the link starts with a "#", it means the language switcher was not set up from the template, or is planned to be added at a later time.

But you could use Google Chrome and right-click to access the "Translate this page" function.

I just tried it and it works well with that site.

Sorry. The language swticher doesn't work

We had an english version where most were translated, but after hiring an indian computer guy the site went haywire and we still haven't gotten the english up again. See what I can do.

Well, pricing is out... And I was not too far.

It's $1,200 per unit. I'm afraid it's a bit on the high side.
Looks like I'll stick to a PC based DSP setup for now.

Ooops, forgot about this thread for a while. As indicated by one or two above, I agree the Dirac function is not a need for me given the cost. Volumio is good free ware, but I am running it on a $65 Asus Tinkerboard quad core just fine, but as Perceval has indicated, Volumio takes some work to get up and running right. Once you do, it is great. So with the Tinkerboard I can use the streaming qualities of Volumio, including wireless, which the new unit by MiniDSP does not seem to offer. And I can control Volumio from my phone, or wirelessly send music to it from my phone. The MiniDSP unit only has ethernet. No wireless seems a miss. So if I do not need Dirac, I can run a Pi or Tinkerboard set up with Volumio and have either Ethernet, wireless or USB input and have output via USB or SPDIF to a MiniDSP x-over unit and get pretty much all I want. Yes, that would have less input or output options than this new device, but it would only cost a total $300 or so with MiniDSP HD. I am not knocking MiniDSP, as they are making some very interesting products at very affordable prices. I am just not sure this is the best bundle of stuff to offer. But love to see them keep cranking out new products.

The Dirac licensing seems to be driving the cost higher on many of their products. Disappointing.
