Dick has been working for 14 years on
computer software to control reproduced sound via precision
tone controls and extreme high frequency (20 kHz) reverberation.
In his words, "... no designer has ever even thought
about the possibility of creating artificial reverberation
that might be superior to real reverberation." His
"20,000 Watt Home Hi-Fi System" was pictured on
the cover of Audio, April 1976.
Dicks system has taken about 65,000
working hours to design and build, starting as far back
as 1962. His objective was to produce the maximum entertainment
value from prerecorded program sources and from live recordings.
The room and equipment are designed for reproduction over
five speaker systems at the original live sound levels and
with more than 100 db dynamic range.
Each session will last 2 hours plus
as long as you want to stay and listen to music. Dick will
describe his high frequency reverberation and precision
EQ, demonstrate their effects, and show the surprising frequency
response curves needed for fine sound. He will show how
he sets up his system live and produces 5-channel sound
from stereo recordings, and remasters his 35 years of Jordan
Hall concert recordings. The program will use his own 6-channel
32-bit processed recordings and CD files.
