Binaural Bob Returns!

Back in the summer of 2015 we had a good time stuffing a bunch of our Model D Art Diffusors® into an empty storage closet and making a bunch of racket. The results were recorded, with the help of our friend Binaural Bob and the resulting data provided some interesting insights.

Well, Binaural Bob is back! This time we had a larger room than before (10’x9’x8’), and experimented with wider variety of sounds and treatment options. While this is obviously not the same as a controlled laboratory test, it does have a certain ‘real world’ flavor that’s relatable.

For best results, turn off any compression/effects and listen on headphones.

Aeolian™ Diffuser – Mash up

Here’s one of the first install pics of our new Aeolian™ Sound Diffusers, installed in a home project studio. Also note the Art Diffusor® Models F & C, in the ceiling and behind the speakers respectively. This is obviously a diffuser connoisseur’s room.

Below shows the room after the Sonora® products are installed.

Fellowship Halls!

As 2017 rapidly comes to a close, here is a look at a couple of more installations from earlier in the year. Both of these fellowship halls were done by the same AFC dealer/installer.   As you can see, although the rooms differ greatly in shape and size, they were both treated with our Sonora panels.

A long narrow hall.

A large open hall.

It’s all about panel placement.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
