Auro 3D for 2ch sources?

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone's using the Auromatic upmixer for listening to music? What are your thoughts? Did you switch back to pure 2ch or keep it on? Which types of music recordings align better?

 

Thanks.

Don't have Auro on my NAD but will sometimes use other upmixing for casual listening.  However, for better listening, will keep it to 2 CH with Dirac Live enabled and dual subs in use.  The pure 2 CH, without Dirac Live is not good enough.

 

To complicate things, I like well recorded multi channel music on the NAD, Dirac Live enabled, Far too many recordings, especially classical, use the other channels for ambience, a neat way to rip money off! 

 

At the end of the day, it is a personal preference.

Thanks snoopy. What's the equivalent of Dynamic EQ on Dirac/NAD?

Do you use it as well?

run a dedicated 2ch rig so no use for auro3d or av system for 2ch music eg cd/sacd/lp and such

 

if there is a blu-ray concert or movie with 2.0 dolby or DTS only track will usually apply dolby surround or DTS-X upsampling

 

what few auro3d discs I have i do use auro3d and in their native track formats :)

There is no equivalent of Audyssey Dynamic EQ in Dirac Live.  Audyssey is better for movies but not well regarded for music.  However, as I noted earlier, it is personal preference and there is no one right answer.
