Interview - 3D Sound

3D sound is a unique audio technology developed by sonic emotion in Switzerland and sold on an audio chip. 3D sound technology provides consumer audio and home entertainment devices with the ability to create a virtual 3D soundfield in any listening area, immersing listeners in their favourite music, movies and games in previously unheard dimensions.

Three Home Theater Sound Enhancers You Can Try This Weekend

Home theater fans, audiophiles, and newcomers alike all have one goal in mind: to make their home theater or reproduced music sound better. It's the engine driving most of our loudspeaker and equipment purchases, which is hardly surprising. After all, it's an amazing era we live in where a savvy consumer can assemble some good loudspeakers, an amplifier and CD/DVD or Blu-ray player and achieve sound reproduction or home theater that can often rival or surpass the real thing, and do it in the comfort of your own home.

Invisible In-Wall Speakers

Stealth Acoustics has released the LinearResponsetm (LR) Series of invisible in-wall or in-ceiling speakers. The new models include the LR3, LR6, LR8 and SLR8. They maintain the same basic model alignments of the previous FX and AX lines, only with dramatically enhanced sonic performance.

Outdoor Speaker Installation and Performance

The demand for outdoor entertaining has become increasingly popular, and justifiably so because who doesn't want to enjoy their favorite music poolside on a hot summer day? But to truly get the same experience you get in the living room outdoors, it takes a bit more than toting a battery-powered iPod accessory out to the patio for your next cookout. To help you get a better understanding of outdoor audio, we turned to Stephanie Scola, marketing manager at KEF America, for a few tips.

Definitive Technology Home Theater Speakers

When you set up a home theater system what is the most important component? This is one fact that has not changed since the days of old --- ITSS (It's The Speakers Stupid).

Paradigm CS-60R-30 Ceiling Speakers

Ceiling speakers for home theaters and multi-room systems have caught on in ways I'm sure make hard core audiophiles cringe. Who would have thought that anyone would even consider getting theater quality sound from a drywall ceiling? After all, weren't they invented for airport PA systems --- and we all know that you can't make out anything that is said over those things.

Paradigm Stylus 370 Oudoor Speakers

Summer is on the way so it's time to start thinking about taking your entertainment outside. Outdoor speakers are a special case and of course can cause special problems when it comes to weathering the storm. They not only need to sound good up close, but they also need to project that sound into a void.

Wall Of Sound

We at McIntosh Labs were pretty impressed with ourselves when we realized the McIntosh 2K reference system weighed in at close to one full ton. It never even occurred to us to imagine what kind of McIntosh system might weigh 75 tons. As it turns out, our imagination was not required. Nearly 32 years earlier, Owsley 'Bear' Stanley, Dan Healy and Mark Raizene of the Grateful Dead sound crew and Ron Wickersham and Rick Turner of Alembic Sound dared to dream of such a system.

High Fidelity and Utility for Stuctural Loudspeakers

The Ideal Structural Loudspeaker (ISL) will open up a world of possibilities for this important application. This ISL will produce no acoustic energy in the ceiling structure and greatly reduce vibration while increasing dynamics and dispersion.

OutCast Wireless Outdoor Speaker System

I pulled it out of the box and in about 10 minutes had a new and very full bodied speaker out on the patio playing music from my ipod.

Whole House Speakers: Flat or Phat?

We are now enjoying digital media on the go and throughout our homes in environments and listening situations that were unheard of in the last century.

Outdoor entertainment is already seeing complete living spaces designed for the outdoors.

Jon Herron - Planar Magnetic Speaker Technology

Our planar magnetic drivers use an advanced thin film membrane to move the air. This film is actually lighter than the air that it is responsible for moving, so it can respond instantly to the smallest detail in the signal.

KEF Five-Two Series Home Theater Speakers

I fired up one of my favorite CD's (which I have listened to hundreds of times). These speakers took the music to another level altogether. I was blown away at how they added an unbelievable depth of sound. I expected a slight tinniness at a high volume but there was nothing of the sort to be heard. All in all I would definitely recommend these speakers to those of you like me who feel intimidated by most speaker technology out there. With these you get all the sound of a complete surround sound system in two very attractive towers. And setup is a breeze.

Moving Beyond the Cineplex: Impactful Home Theater through Tactile Technology

Tactile technology promises to deliver personalised, realistic impact through aesthetically pleasing (hidden) design, and straightforward integration without jeopardising our family's hearing. When choosing between types of tactile device, customers should select products based on discerning need-to-performance analysis. Frequency range, flatness of frequency response and efficiency are all important considerations. Other factors include uniformity of motion, power requirements, gain and level control, interoperability with control systems, and cost.
