The World’s Best Analog Section and Converters… Full Stop.

Hapi_SmallerHorus_Smaller

After hundreds of comparison tests made by some of the world’s most “golden eared” engineers, we can say this with a strong sense of confidence.

The Networked Audio range of converters brings Swiss-precision and un-ending attention to detail in every single component and signal path and results in the most astonishing of record and reproduction signal paths of any audio interface or converter available today.

  • Hand matched and hand soldered analog componentry.
  • Ardatech AT1201 A/D chip with modified HPF for enhanced performance
  • Individually calibrated quartz clocking mechanism
  • Each channel must pass over 30 noise, distortion, CMRR and level threshold tests
  • Completely balanced signal path direct to the AD
  • A/D and D/A samplerate support from 44.1 -> 384kHz, DXD & DSD64/128/256
Meyer Acheron Cinema Series

The new Meyer Cinema line has arrived.

acheron-studio

At the heart of Meyer Sound’s EXP line of products is the Acheron high-performance screen channel loudspeaker. Optimized for installation behind perforated screens, the two-way loudspeaker combines the advantages of self-powered technology and innovative horn design to deliver exceptional, precise coverage for the left, right, and center sound channels for cinema.

Designed and manufactured at Meyer Sound’s headquarters in Berkeley, California, the Acheron Studio’s drivers include one 15-inch low-frequency cone driver and one high-frequency 4-inch diaphragm compression driver. Both drivers yield uncompromising quality and full bandwidth and are powered by sophisticated onboard amplification. The proprietary Meyer Sound power amplifier is a two-channel, class AB/bridged amplifier with complementary MOSFET output stages that yields a total output of 700 W (1,400 W peak). Built-in signal processing includes an electronic crossover and correction filters — to achieve a flat phase and frequency response — along with driver protection circuitry. The self-powered design not only ensures consistent results but also simplifies installation in both new and existing rooms.

Blue Sky AMC
Aug 15th, 2016 by admin

Overall monitor system control is extremely useful in a 2.1 system and essential in a surround system. Blue Sky’s new Audio Management Controller (AMC) builds on our previous-generation Bass Management Controller, and adds many new capabilities. The AMC provides precise, centralized control over levels, balance, mute, selection of house curves, and various other system configuration settings. The AMC is fitted with a big weighted “old-school” rotary control for primary adjustments as well as additional hardware controls via lighted buttons, and a large display screen. The AMC is an 8-channel DSP-based system and supports configurations up to 7.1. Any input can be routed to any output and multiple inputs can be mixed and routed to any outputs. Each channel features 1/3 octave EQ, 8 bands of parametric EQ and filters, and variable delay for time alignment. Other features include 8 system presets (EQ curves, etc.), lip sync delay, 7.1 bass management with variable cutoff frequency per channel, and an externally-accessible mute input.

The Bass Channel has a 10 band parametric equalizer. The Digital inputs have a built-in sample rate converter, which can be bypassed in Pure-Digital mode for 48 kHz/96 kHz operation. The Digital I/O is AES/EBU 110 ohm balanced transformer coupled. Analog I/O is balanced, and nominal input levels are selectable between +4dBu and -6dBu.

M3G_front

The M3G is unique in that it is not just another SDI De-Embedder, it is a complete monitoring solution for SDI audio. It allows for easy multi-channel audio monitoring—such as surround sound or multiple-language dialog tracks—to external monitor speakers without having to piece together a system using discrete de-embedders, analog level controllers, mixers, etc. The M3G does it all in one easy-to-use solution. The built-in output module slot allows additional capabilities to be added easily, for example, adding AES outputs to drive digital monitor speakers.

The M3G monitors embedded audio from any ancillary audio group present in a SMPTE SD/HD/3G SDI video stream. Up to eight channels of audio from any two groups may be monitored efficiently using the front panel, or add up to 16 channels to the monitor mix from four groups simultaneously using the remote GUI and automation API.
