DSP DISCRETE CHANNEL DIRECT DRIVE FOR EACH DRIVER - 
Dedicated to the future of Streaming digital music, our  research team began development of a reference DSP based system in 2014. By integrating advanced digital technologies the IMAGE1 exhibits advanced DSP filtering driving dedicated latest-generation class D amplification. Drivers are individually direct coupled via a tailored discrete signal path. The synergistic result not only provides Reference quality musical reproduction but innovative new, acoustic bass control and wave launch in the listening room unavailable with traditional Audiophile component systems.

TIME COORDINATED ACOUSTIC WAVE LAUNCH -

By configuring all crossover slope functions in a digital domain, the limitations of traditional passive crossover components are bypassed. Drivers can individually and accurately be aligned in time for optimal acoustic integration, each dedicated amplifier is directly coupled to an individual driver avoiding energy storage, hysteresis and resonance limitations associated with traditional passive crossover assemblies.


EXTREMELY LOW DISTORTION DRIVERS -

All  8 of the drivers in the IMAGE1 system are designed and fabricated using the best practices in mechanical movement, chassis, cone construction, and magnet structure allowing for extremly low distortion reproduction far above and below the frequencies required by the crossover configuration. 





- ACOUSTIC BASS WAVE GUIDE
Advanced research into the use of digital technology for acoustics has resulted in innovative “wave guide” low frequency soundwave shaping in the listening room. By digitally time aligning the bass wave fronts from individually driven drivers, low frequency energy can literally be shaped to minimize destructive bass interaction, and optimize constuctive interference so as to reduce "boomy bass" resulting in ultra clear low frequency sonic reproduction that doesn't get in the way of the rest of the music.

-SUPER INERT CONSTRAINED LAYER CONSTRUCTION
All thirteen external cabinet sections utilize a sandwich of low resonance ceramic plate bonded to the interior cabinet walls via a compliant adhesive specifically designed for sound absorption, transforms resonant energy to heat energy, dramatically damping speaker cabinet resonance. This extremely well damped mechanical system tightly controls all mechanical/acoustic energy delivering musical nuance and subltlity cleanly and precisely into the listening environment. Tightness of bass, darkness of space, extremely low noise floor, and effortlessness are the result.
