It??s a transformational upgrade to my audio listening.?

Magnetron Satellite
The Magnetron Satellite??s base uses patent pending magnetic coupling to secure its resonator to the satellite base. The magnetic coupling strategically dampens the resonator to control its decay and frequency response for better integration with the Acoustic ART System.

Magnetron Satellites are used to control first order reflection points along a side-wall for improved image focus, a wider soundstage, and smoother high frequencies. When setting up Magnetron Satellites, have a friend move a mirror along the side-wall between your listening position and the speakers. While sitting in your listening chair, look for the reflection of your speaker??s tweeter in the mirror. This is your first order reflection point and it is the starting point for affixing the Magnetron Satellite to your listening rooms side-wall. Listen to your system with both Satellite??s at the first order reflection point several inches higher than your Vibratron, and above the tweeter level of your main speakers. Next move the Satellites two inches toward your listening position, away from your speakers. If this is a movement in the correct direction, you should hear sweeter highs and a wider sound field. If you lose image focus, try moving them three inches in front of the first order reflection point toward your main speakers. Again listen for image focus and high frequency response. If you cannot place the Magnetron exactly in its first order reflection point, experiment with your options and listen for image focus behind your speakers and for positive changes in high frequencies response. Since all rooms do not have walls that lend themselves to such an install, if necessary, you may forgo the installation of the Magnetron Satellites and still enjoy benefits of the Acoustic ART System.

Gravitron Satellite
The Gravitron Satellite??s resonator sits atop a brass ring that allows for full activation and extended decay of its resonator satellite. This is key to its intended application of equalizing back pressure in a listening room, for amazing wrap around acoustic environments, and is perfect for balancing out less than ideal Vibratron placement. Properly installed, the Gravitron Satellite dramatically smooths all audible frequencies and improves overall soundstaging.

The primary role of the Gravitron Satellite is to balance out pressure along the rear wall of a listening room. With all other Acoustic ART resonators in place, experiment with rear wall placement directly behind your listening position approximately 2/3 to 3/4 of the way up the rear wall. Listen for desired high frequency response and soundstaging.

The secondary role of the Gravitron Satellite is to balance less than ideal Vibratron placement. When forced to place a Vibratron below its ideal location, place a Gravitron vertically above the Vibratron, higher than ideal Vibratron placement, to approximate ideal placement of the Vibratron.

Lastly, the Gravitron Satellite can be used in place of a Vibratron should a more cost effective solution be needed. In this case, follow the Vibratron placement guide.

Hand Tuned
Each resonator is forged in the USA from proprietary carbon steel and later case-hardened with a torch. During the hardening process, each resonator is tapped with a small steel hammer. A microphone connected to a spectrum analyzer measures the acoustic property of each resonator. When the resonator reaches its desired acoustic property, it is immediately quenched in an oil bath to halt the case- hardening process. Tuning each resonator ensures proper acoustic properties are met and corrects for variations that can occur in the forging process. The final result is an acoustic treatment system that delivers sound quality like no other ?? regardless of room size or system configuration.


Quantum Tunneling
In late 2007 we were approached by Ken Gorres, our representative in the Pro Audio market. Ken had been blown away by a Quantum Tunneling demonstration a few weeks back. As part of the demonstration we listened to our reference system with a pair of interconnects that had not been Quantum Tunneled. We then removed the cables, performed the Quantum Tunneling process, and installed them back into the system. Our reference system was transformed with a lower noise floor, expanded sound field, and more extended and transparent frequencies. Ken was incredulous. He wondered out loud if we had ever Quantum Tunneled guitar strings. I told him we had not.

A few weeks passed and Ken was back on the phone. He wanted to bring a couple of his studio musician buddies by to hear our reference system. They showed up with French Horns in hand and after listening to the system for a few hours we headed out to our reverberant factory floor for a live jam session. It was amazing to hear the difference between a relatively inexpensive Yamaha horn and their custom hand built masterpieces. Ken then asked, ??Ted, if you would be willing, we would like to Quantum Tunnel the basic Yamaha horn and compare it to the custom horns.? Ted agreed, but warned them he would not be held responsible if the horn took a turn for the worse. They agreed and added, ??We??re not letting you touch our babies.? We set the French Horn to be struck by the Tesla Coil and bang! After five minutes we turned the coil off and returned to the factory floor for a listen. The difference was startling. Previously the Yamaha had been noticeably dull by comparison; it now flowed with rich reverberant over tones. With a twinkle in one eye, and a slight expression of trepidation in the other, they handed me their babies. After performing the procedure on their reference horns we returned to the factory for a third jam session. The difference was amazing. We later treated their silver mouthpieces and with each successive treatment, the horns became sweeter with more colorful overtones.

Fast forward to the end of the Acoustic ART development program. It was not long after we perfected the formula for each resonator that we got the idea to Quantum Tunnel them. First we treated a Vibratron, and then the Satellites and Bass Station resonators. The difference was just as it had been with the French horns. There was a noticeable increase in air, a larger sound field, deeper more extended bass, and an overall improvement in transparency. We??re not sure why hitting a resonator with a million volts should exact such a change, but we can certainly hear the difference and so will you.
