SH! ACOUSTICS PARTNERS WITH STEINWAY & SONS TO PROMOTE CONCERTINO

World renowned instrument maker Steinway & Sons has entered into a partnership with leading acoustical firm SH! Acoustics to market Concertino - the live performance acoustic enhancement systems for luxury homes.

Leading acoustical design firm, SH! Acoustics, has entered into a sales & marketing partnership with world -renowned piano maker Steinway & Sons to promote the Concertino live performance acoustical enhancement system to their clients and artists. The partnership comes after Steinway`s purchase of a Concertino system for their main Piano Selection Room in the Steinway factory in Long Island City, NY. `We are incredibly happy to be able to allow prospective purchasers of Steinway pianos to not only listen to the nuances of some of the world`s greatest new pianos, but to hear them in a variety of concert space environments with Concertino engaged,` says SH! President and Concertino creator, Steve Haas. The Steinway piano represents the finest quality and luxury experience, and Steinway & Sons recognizes how Concertino can benefit their discerning clients and provide an experience that is worthy of the Steinway name.


Many different kinds of homeowners can benefit from Concertino: hosts who hire musicians to play at their events, musicians and actors who rehearse at home, and parents who want to inspire their children to play music. Concertino can easily be installed anywhere in a home: in a listening room, in a home recording studio, in a home theater, even in an outdoor area. A discreet enhancement, Concertino is barely visible, and rooms outfitted with Concertino can be used for other purposes.

Concertino is the result of years of technological development in commercial venues around the world. Concertino changes the acoustics of a space by altering the time and frequency characteristics of each and every sound in that space. First, sounds are captured by eight or more hidden microphones. Then, those sounds travel to a computer powered by cutting -edge digital signal processing technology. This computer uses sophisticated algorithms to alter the sounds it receives. Finally, the computer sends the enhanced sounds back into the space through a network of more than a dozen speakers concealed in the walls, ceiling, and floor.

Concertino is the work of Steve Haas, one of the world's most versatile acoustical designers. Mr. Haas has designed more than 250 concert halls, performing arts centers, Broadway theaters, opera houses, music schools, museums, churches, recording facilities and home theaters. Mr. Haas and his team at SH! Acoustics have developed a nationwide network of top -flight musicians who are delighted to play in spaces enhanced by Concertino.
