Airsound® Stereo is a single point speaker system that reproduces stereo sound from its 'main' and 'spatial' components rather than separate left and right channels; filling a room with stereo sound from just one loudspeaker.
The way we conventionally listen to stereo sound, via separate left and right loudspeakers, incurs a number of fundamental compromises that limit the effective reproduction of the stereo signal. Properly spaced left and right speaker enclosures, providing a small optimum listening area - or sweet spot - are an impractical proposition in most domestic or commercial applications.
Many problems inherent in conventional stereo reproduction conspire to compromise the listening experience:
• total loss of stereo imaging beyond the sweet spot
• on/off axis frequency and phase discrepancies
• frequency node and cancellation 'combing' effects resulting from two loudspeaker enclosures
Airsound® Stereo is a 'single point' loudspeaker system that reproduces stereo sound from its 'main' and 'spatial' components rather than as separate left and right channels. Airsound® is based on electro -acoustic engineering, reproducing true stereo sound, rather than any form of sound field simulation; as featured in many modern TV and home cinema replay systems.
Airsound® amplifiers - integrated within the speaker enclosure - process a conventional left/right stereo signal into its main and spatial components. This enables an even stereo soundfield to completely fill a room from just one loudspeaker enclosure.
Airsound® Stereo allows effective stereo sound to be heard in almost any environment, and for the stereo signal to be appreciated anywhere in front of the Airsound® enclosure. True stereo replay can thus be incorporated into integrated and low profile AV devices, such as flat panel TVs, DVD video players, micro audio systems and other compact home entertainment systems, where effective left/right stereo replay is severely compromised; and from portable, mobile and miniature CE and IT devices where it was previously impossible.
