Swedish audio technology provider Dirac Research has announced an agreement with Pioneer Corporation to distribute their suite of digital technologies to the OEM audio market in Japan. The product categories cover computer speakers, sound bars, Bluetooth speakers, TV loudspeakers, portable audio devices, educational support products as well as amusement equipment featuring arcade games and others. Pioneer will also be leveraging Dirac solutions within a variety of consumer products and commercial audio applications. “About three years ago, Dirac introduced us to their suite of digital sound quality optimisation technologies,” commented Mr. Osamu TakechiSenior General Manager of Pioneer Industrial Solutions Division. “Completely different from conventional virtual surround and/or equalisation, the Dirac solutions are both theoretically and practically proven to fundamentally improve an audio systems’ performance. We were quite impressed with Dirac; hence, we decided to integrate their technologies into our newest speaker systems. We are now in a position to market these ground-breaking technologies in Japan.”


Specialising in digital room correction, sound field control and sound optimisation, Dirac Research has developed a range tailored for different audio systems, such as speaker and earphone optimisation, soundstage widening for multiple speakers, sound quality optimisation for portable devices and digital room correction for hifi systems. We are excited about the synergy between Dirac and Pioneer and look forward to delivering superior audio solutions to Japanese OEM’s,” commented Dr. Mathias Johansson, CEO of Dirac. “We anticipate that the integration of our advanced technologies with innovative hardware from Pioneer and the other Japanese manufacturers will establish new benchmarks for audio performance in a variety of product categories.” Johansson concluded.
