H.A.S. are the abbreviation of "Hermeneutics Audio Systems", the term hermeneutics has its origin in the Greek verb ἑρμηνεύειν (jermeneueien) meaning interpret, declare, announce, clarify and finally translate. Means something becomes comprehensible or takes understanding.
Audio playback requires a technical means to transform the stored signals, whether digital information, modulated grooves, or magnetic tracks, in vibrational energy of the air particles so they can be perceived by our auditory sense and finally reconstructed by our brain . The transformation of these discrete signals in something emotionally, for to make possible a real understanding is not easy.
Developing systems for recorded music playback is relatively recent, Edison invented the phonograph in 1876, so just under 150 years. Since the time of Edison is clear that there have been great strides in finding a replica that could fool the senses and approach the music live, however steps can sometimes be forward, backwards, or reach impasses, good ideas in one point by not having the necessary technology have been forgotten. While large industries voicing seeking quick profits by exploiting technologies that can reduce manufacturing costs at the expense of an acceptable quality, thus devaluing the act of listening to music itself.
In "el Taller d´Áudio" think it is possible to create sound systems with a high level of credibility without going broke in the process. Our proposals are often rare, research, study and practice sometimes lead us by unconventional ways.
A vital element in the audio system is the speaker system, since it must transform the electric power supplied to mechanical energy, the crucial step is particularly sensitive, even more so considering the interaction of the sound waves produced by the speaker in the largest enclosure, which is the audition room. Normally we can not build a listening room designed specifically to music playback, however if we can develop speakers systems tailored to the existing room , this is one of the key features of H.A.S. Also we have some standard models for their design make them very versatile in adapting to different environments.
Our standard model HAS LT-1 has proved their adaptability with or without subwoofer, on a wide range of environments, from small areas of less than 20 square meters from spacious audition rooms . This is possible due to their design based on a load of modified transmission line to achieve low internal air speed, so that a very low influence of the enclosure in the timbre in the sound.
The cutting frequency components responsible for the interaction of the speaker are adjustable at the time of installation. You may use it in passive or bi-amplified active mode at all times retaining their ability to adapt to the environment.
Also you can choose the level of aesthetic finish to suit also visually to its final location.
At a higher level we propose the use of sets of three stereo speaker configuration, this system developed by H.A.S in recent years, provides a spatial location of the instruments and vocals the on soundstage can not match with more conventional systems.
The type of construction we prefer to use whenever possible, is modulated open box. This type of design is a very low level of coloring by enclosure while providing a high level of acoustic credibility. This system properly installed with the aforementioned three-speaker stereo system, providing the highest sonic performance, both in musicality and spatial location of the voices and instruments.
We use selected crossover components for the construction of our systems, components that can hardly be found in conventional speaker systems: capacitors, resistors and inductors of different types and manufacturers.
Implemented these components in modules wired at air, thereby adjusting the number of contacts to minimize them.
We carefully choose the speakers that were part of our systems from a wide range of manufacturers. The speaker units we use are usually the type of "high sensitivity" with it we achieve low distortion rate while a great display of power from associated amplifier, is not necessary for sound pressure levels similar to direct.
A system wiring and quality connected is critical to maintain the integrity of the signal quality from the beginning to the end (the speaker), while the choice of a particular type of cable can contribute to a particular kind of sound , although "El Taller d´Àudio" We believe there are better ways to model this final form it takes sound reproduction system.
We are not pro of big payouts in sophisticated cables, yes, we believe in the importance of the adequacy of the cables will be used in the system, taking into account parameters such as the possible ground loops, thickness relative to length, balanced cables , contact materials, etc. .. Our speaker systems always have gold-plated or rhodium contacts and internal wiring of recognized quality. Used to weld cables, materials with high level of silver ensuring accurate and durable connections over time.
The H.A.S. proposed are continually evolving, developing new speaker systems or adapting new components to existing systems, so that a transducer assembly may evolve by modifying each of its parts.
