A few months ago, I was enjoying my audio system tremendously but experiencing too much listening fatigue. I had assembled a home audio system with astounding performance for the cost but the music still sounded too "digital." Rather grainy and etched, and too cold for my tastes after years of high end tube systems. I wondered how to make it smoother, sweeter, and warmer.
I considered the best ways to improve the sound, as so many music lovers do when they are ready to rise above their latest plateau. As usual, I assumed better sound would mean a better stereo component. My experience with tubes led me to try adding a tube buffer into the acoustic signal path. A high-quality headphone amplifier with an excellent tube choice warmed and sweetened the sound considerably but something even more interesting and unexpected happened.
I found a set of reviews online that introduced me to Acoustic System International (ASI) and Franck Tchang, the company's resident genius. ASI is home to some stratospheric high end gear including exotic tower speakers and amplification that makes a serious statement. However, what most captured my attention and curiosity was the mysterious and puzzling acoustic room conditioning approach Mr. Tchang invented over 10 years ago. He originated an entirely new and fresh approach to acoustic conditioning called simply Acoustic System (TM.)
His system develops resonance from playback to tune the sound in a room in "real time" while music plays. A set of tiny resonators (noble metal bowls placed on wood stands with silver tripods) promised to provide my remedy so I suspended disbelief and contacted ASI. As I requested, Mr. Tchang sent me a configuration to quell the one-second dry echo in my overly-hard listening space and smooth the digital sound. After a one-hour installation a great improvement was immediately obvious.
After a week of analytic listening I was astounded and delighted. The jaw-dropping improvement made me a true believer based on results obtained. I had found another digital audio item to add to iHi-Fi's growing product lines. Neither component nor accessory, this indispensable System becomes part of your listening environment.
I set up iHi-Fi.com because I want to share my sense of wonder and awe with music playback that can be achieved with digital sources at low cost.
