Topic: Demonstration and Discussion / Classic Line
3-inch Single Driver Loudspeaker
Acoustic Technologies (Chicago, IL)
will generate a discussion and demonstrate their Classic Line of 3"
Single Driver Loudspeakers.
Mr. Maeshiba, after years of research,
has created a floor-standing speaker that combines a single 3 full
range driver with an ingenious enclosure, which serves as an amplifier and
resonator to accurately reproduce a coherent, naturally synthesized sound
over a large range of frequencies.
The loudspeakers create a realistic
three-dimensional listening experience over a previously unattainable range
of listening positions. The loudspeakers do not have a sweet-spot,
thereby allowing the listener to roam around the listening room (or even
leave it) and still retain a realistically wide, deep, and tall soundstage
image in which all performers remain in their (virtual) location.
The design pays particular attention
to Time Domain considerations (an almost totally neglected aspect of reproduced
sound) and takes its inspiration from acoustic instruments.
Guests are encouraged to bring their
own Compact Discs for playback on our Classic Line loudspeaker and to check
