History

The first steps in this installation were to design appropriate measures for the listening room, since it had the advantage that the room did not previously exist, but should be built as an annex to the house. For the calculation of the room, reputed auditoriums worldwide were investigated, and computer simulation were used to find the best ratios of length, width, height and symmetry between walls. As well as the internal processing of materials with different absorption and diffusion. Then the speaker system and furniture was designed to locate the different components, some characteristics of the latter are: Bass-reflex boxes with serious high performance15-inch woofer , integrated without physical contact with it, right and left open panel with two midrange and two tweeters overlapping, one of Ribbon technology and other compression driver technology, central open box type dipole for medium and front double Ribbon for center high frequencies .

The associated electronics was first exploited previous installments, being in constant evolution, gradually transforming from a system eminently tube to a high level solid system state.

Sound

The result was an open sound with a wide soundstage in both width, height and depth, large orchestral masses are located in space without difficulty, the choirs are suitably present behind the orchestra, while modest in number formations interpreters or single voices acquire human dimensions, absolutely believable in size and timbre. The use in the system of central dipole increases the effect of the sound does not come from any particular speaker. The musicality is ease to follow the performance of each instrument is also one of the highlights at this installation.

  • Sources: CD / SACD Consonance, IMAC computer, Apogee electronics DAC. Turntable Rega Planar3.
  • Kimber and Supra-wiring.

History

The challenge in this installation was to achieve a high level of sound in a small size room (20 m). First we opted for the open baffle concept with u-frame load for the bass, and also open-center dipole design. The use of this technology can completely avoid enclosure coloring , although it requires a very precise location of the speakers in the room. The cut frequency between average and acute passive design is of order 6/18 db per octave ensuring adequate protection and maintains consistent Twetter temporary phase.

Sound

Music plays a huge transparency and musicality while maintaining the spatial location at all times. The voices are presented puntually in the sound space in small formations is easy to see "air" between different instruments, while large orchestras or more complex music dominates the feeling that the sound is coming from behind the loudspeakers, a large dimension than the room itself.

  • Supra-wiring.

History

In this installation is intended to achieve high sound quality, integrated with an audiovisual system using only two main speakers and a subwoofer, based on a modest budget. We opted into this system by using a digital crossover that allowed active and to perform frequency cuts precisely, to equalize the response of the speakers to correct major defects in the acoustic characteristics of the room features.

Sound

After a period of refining, the resulting sound was large, musicaly and controlled at different frequencies, despite a few reverberant room with absorbing elements. The system provided a remarkable spatial location and ease to follow different melodies present in complex compositions.

History

The objective pursued in this installation was to achieve full video audio equipment, but giving special importance to the stereo playback. The AV part of the installation is disconnected in stereo playback, AV playback multichannel preamplifier HIFI works in bypass mode giving the command to AV processor / amplifier.

Sound

Balanced and nuanced playing two channels, with appropriate timbre and implementation in room, good level of aeration and ease to follow the different interpretations. In AV mode spectacular sound effects available with a controlled yet powerful bass register, and remarkable facility to continue the dialogue in any situation.

History

The premise for the realization of this installation was that all the television equipment, speakers, electronics, should be hidden on some minimum measures. While maintaining a good level of musical quality. This forced the design of a main small size speakers bass-reflex loading , integrating on premises a television powered speakers to be able to use with TV without running the sound equipment.

Sound

The resulting sound was presented in a manner consistent timbre, with a good level of integration of the different frequencies and remarkable stereo presentation. Limited by design features of the spatial location of furniture remained in the background. The speaker quality used in direct connection to TV significantly improved the sound quality of the original speakers, resulting in a considerable added value.

History

In this installation High End evolved and improved over 20 years, is intended to achieve a degree of quality and refinement of absolute reference. This incentive to the development of a version "without compromise" of HAS model LT-1 speakers, using the latest advances in transducers, with a pasive crossover carefully designed to complement the interaction of the speakers, it uses a 6/18 db octave design with selected components and paired with an adjustable available at the time of installation to bring it into the final characteristics of the listening room and electronics employed. The internal geometries of the cabinet also modified specifically for this model. After telling the team with diverse sound sources and different magnifications, gave a definitive DCS incorporating digital electronics and set Jeff Rowland amplification step.

Sound

Highly musicaly, easily expressed any interpretation, extracting details of digital recordings that make a significant sound to hearing wealth. A sound with calm and dynamic and versatile. This system presents a "touch of reality" with which easily miss you are listening to an audio system.

History

Installation example where an existing system was upgraded with a third front speaker, the latter designed in line with the main boxes was implemented.

Sound

The change after the implementation of the third speaker was radical in terms of soundstage, achieving a remarkable three-dimensional presentation. The system sounds musical, nuanced and dynamic inexhaustible even in complicated passages.

History

The purpose of this installation was going to give primacy to the analog audio playback: turntables and tape. And while being the center of a home theater system of high quality. The two sets of the equipment are electrically separated, running in stereo mode bypassing the AV processor.

Sound

The system manages to get the most from analog sources, providing a high degree of warmth and humanity to play with a high level and good dimensional dynamic presentation. Reproduction in AV mode brings the spectacular sound typical of the best films and in turn get the immersion into the environment without fanfare or abruptness.

History

The project proposed to us on this occasion was of particular interest, it was on this occasion to design a system of true hearing level for about 70 people in a room of considerable size not acoustically treated. The project required a high level of quality as the organization that commissioned the project was a school for classical music expert listeners (Musicosophia) and music playback was a fundamental part of the event. We designed a technologically hybrid speakers, open panel for mid and high, and reflex enclosure for the bass, attacked each channel with three power amps, managed all for an active digital crossover DBX computer controlled, which allowed precise adjustment of transducers in adaptation to the room and the number of listeners present at all times.

Sound

Although the acoustics of the room, too reverberant, great sound quality, transparent and accurate in sharp and forceful means is controlled in serious achievement. The music was easy listening with great recordings recreating the feeling of live from anywhere in the room.
