I am regularly asked to retune the speakers made by different producers, the owners of which have acquired so great listening experience that they are not satisfied with the sound of their loudspeakers.
For many years I have had to reconfigure products from different companies, I can`t recollect all, but within my memory are : ALON, CANTON, PRIMARE, POLK AUDIO, VANDERSTEEN, AR, B&W, KEF, TANNOY, MB QUART, TDL, SVEN, KENWOOD, JM lab, INFINITY, FISHER, PROAC, DYNAUDIO CRAFFT, APOGEE ACOUSTICS, Jamo, JBL, Castle, Sansui.
"What`s the matter? What can be changed in the sound of ready speakers?
Almost all driver models, when connected directly to the amplifier is unacceptably distort the tonal balance, even if they are mounted in the optimal enclosure.
Even speakers, well reproducing a certain range of frequencies, create problems when "joining" with drivers reproducing the adjacent frequency band.
A powerful instrument in skilled hands - normalization of the amplitude frequency response and tonal balance by means of a filter - crossovers, which not only break up a signal, fed to a speaker, into frequency bands, but in any case, strongly influence the amplitude-frequency characteristic.
I will be glad, if my knowledge and skill are useful in creating your new audio system or in improving the sound of your audio equipment.
It depends on the mastery of an adjuster - creator of acoustic systems whether harm or benefit will be done to the AFR by filters.
This rare art are mastered, for example, by specialists of the folowing companies: Àóäèînote, Monitor audio, Vienna acoustics, Sonus Faber, Dinaudio, Living voice, Avantgarde acoustic and some others.
Most other manufacturers far not fully realize the potential of their acoustic systems, and that gives me the opportunity to create, on the basis of standard audio models, new versions with a much more attractive sound."
Great experience in acoustics installation allows me to predict more accurately than science-like calculations, the features of audio equipment sound in acoustic conditions of various premises.
This experience helps me, while cooperating with interior designers, to achieve a harmonious combination of home theater equipment with other elements of interior.
This fact has been noticed by my competitors, who "borrowed" pictures of my installations for their advertising.
In "Salon AV" magazine (# 1 and 2, 2003) " Studio Cinema" company " decorated its advertisements with photos of my installations.
Of course, sound, filled with feelings is necessary in movies not less than in music playback.
I'm concerned in transfer of exceptionally intense and varied feelings, which are expressed by movie actors.
Achievable with my audio equipment combination of bright soundtrack, sound effects and acting emotions produces much more deeper impression on a listener, than "plastic" reproduction with emphasis on effects, characteristic for most standard sets of "home theater equipment."
