Actually I didn’t compare both. All I can say is that room correction made the biggest improvement to the sound I had ever before, this was more significant than any dac or for example a linear power supply. Acourate comes at a price, but it is well worth the invest compared how much you can pay for other things that have a minor effect to thesound!
Acourate is the the gold standard in room correction and highly regarded, so I went this way.
But at the end all that is important is that you get a good filter for your room!
You can pay much money for Dacs, amps and speakers, but this is only one part in the equation and a very significant part that many don’t think about is the room you play your music in.
And this can be adressed by either building a optimized hearing room that few have or by using the best room correction filter and software!
In my experience this is well worth the effort and the invest!
