Press Release: Wireworld Brings The Best Test of Cable Fidelity

The Audio and Headphone Cable Polygraphs allow attendees to hear exactly what cables do to the sound.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL—May 2016—Wireworld Cable Technology—respected manufacturer of high-performance audio and video cables—will bring its acclaimed Audio Cable Polygraph presentation to T.H.E. Show Newport on June 3-5, 2016 at the Hotel Irvine, Irvine, CA. Presentations will be at 11:00 am, 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm in Room 1016. Founder and Designer, David Salz, offers the best test of audio cable fidelity for attendees to hear exactly what cables to do the sound.

The Audio Cable Polygraph is an interactive listening experience and journey to discover the truth in cable fidelity with the ultimate goal of music preservation. The presentation will include a series of listening tests that reveal the full effect of cables by comparing them to a direct connection—the only scientific reference standard for cable fidelity. During his presentation, David will explain how cables affect the sound we hear and he will demonstrate the primary loss mechanism of cables that most high end brands fail to address. Attendees will have the opportunity to download the test tracks used in the interconnect portion of the demonstration for further evaluation.

Visitors to Room 1016 will also have the opportunity throughout the entire show to test Wireworld Nano Series headphone cables and others against a direct connection between a DAP and headphones. In addition to the listening demonstrations, Wireworld will also showcase its full line of cables, including the new Starlight Ethernet—the first high end network cable that meets the proposed requirements for Category 8. This new model is also the first to incorporate Wireworld’s patent-pending Tite-Shield™ Technology, a radical new structure that overcomes limitations of previous network cable designs.

Premiere: Darin Fong Audio Showing “OUT OF YOUR HEAD” Software

Game-Changing Advanced Audio Software That Replicates Listening to High-End Speakers Using Only Headphones

San Diego, CA, June 2, 2016–Darin Fong Audio will be exhibiting Out Of Your Head software at THE Show Newport 2016. Out Of Your Head is advanced audio software that replicates the experience of listening to high-end speakers using only headphones. This advanced software, which works with all major media playback software and any set of headphones, is a game-changer in the audio and video playback industry, as it does away with the need for high-end speaker listening systems and surround-sound home theater systems for the individual user.

Out Of Your Head allows the listener to listen to audio with the sound of different speakers and home theater systems with the affordability, privacy, and portability of just headphones. The sound is no longer inside your head, like conventional headphones—it comes from “out of your head,” as it does when you are listening to speakers and home theater systems.

The latest version of Out Of Your Head is now suitable for gaming. With an all new low latency engine, now gamers can experience a full 7.1 speaker system while gaming. A new low cost gamer version is also now available for only $24.95.

Out Of Your Head now also supports ROON playback and has improved compatibility with more DACs including the ASUS Xonar Essence.

Developed by audiovisual engineer and web design specialist Darin Fong, in San Diego, California, Out Of Your Head is a breakthrough in audio processing software for headphones. It allows the listener to experience their music or movie as if they were actually sitting in the room with the speakers that were measured—but without having to actually be there.

“Think of it as audio ‘virtual reality,’” says Fong. “If you close your eyes while listening to Out Of Your Head, you can ‘hear’ the exact location of each of the speakers in the room. You can even hear the sound reflecting off the walls. You can hear the difference between different models and brands of speakers.”

Premiere: ASC to Unveil IsoThermal Tube Trap at T.H.E. Show Newport

ASC To Unveil New Product at T.H.E. Show Newport

Oregon-based company will head to Newport Beach, CA June 3-5 to unveil the IsoThermal Tube Trap at T.H.E. Show Newport in Irvine, CA

Eugene, OR. May 11, 2016: Acoustic Sciences Corporation – manufacturer of the iconic TubeTrap – recently added a new product to their expansive line of acoustic treatment products. It’s called the IsoThermal TubeTrap and they are unveiling it to the public June 3-5 at T.H.E. Show Newport in Irvine, CA.

The IsoThermal TubeTrap delivers twice the bass absorption of an equivalent-sized TubeTrap between 30 Hz and 250 Hz. That’s why the IsoThermal TubeTrap has two chrome dots along the rim instead of the traditional one dot: two dots means twice the power! Technically speaking the IsoThermal TubeTrap is an isothermal-class RC time constant bass trap combined with the adjustable treble diffusion of our regular TubeTrap.

“It happens at Mach 1, the speed of sound,” says Art Noxon, Founder and President of ASC and inventor of the original TubeTrap and the new IsoThermal TubeTrap. “We only have a split second to minimize the phase add/cancel effects of the rear wall bounce. The direct signal pulse rushes past your ears, impacts the rear wall and springs back upstream to interfere with direct signal at your listening position.”

Look for various ASC products throughout T.H.E. Show in Newport and stop by the ASC booth in the Ballroom (M20 on the map) to see the new IsoThermal TubeTraps and to talk with Art Noxon directly. Also, make sure to sign up for the raffle, where you could win a copy of the ASC MATT & Acoustic Test CD that gives you a detailed analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of your listening room or home theater.

System Optimization Seminar

system_optimization-22x22System Optimization Seminar
ROOM: Conference Theater, Main Floor
Presented by Stillpoints

Bob Hodas will focus on the speaker/room interface and optimizing system performance through proper placement and room treatments. Sections of his presentation will cover speaker/listener positioning, integrating subwoofers, selecting the best style of acoustic treatments for a specific problem and how those treatments should be placed. Slides will demonstrate frequency and phase responses of proper and improper setups.

Grant Samuelsen of Shunyata Research will explain why the form of and method of electrical delivery chosen for Music, Film, Recording and Medical systems will have a profound effect on performance. Grant will share the tips and tools necessary to achieve optimal protection, current delivery and noise reduction without spending a fortune on after-market cables or AC tweaks. Grant will show measurement, video and application examples to highlight this discussion, with questions and answers afterward.

Bruce Jacobs of Stillpoints will discuss the importance of system noise reduction through mechanical isolation, acoustical treatments, and signal grounding. He will present true mechanical isolation and the ability to remove ultra band vibrations found in all electronics.  Bruce will show how to sonically remove your loudspeaker from your room environment. He will discuss signal ground noise reduction and why it is important to music reproduction. He will also discuss the difference between hearing the recording environment or hearing your room and how Apertures address this perspective.

John Tucker of Exemplar Audio will speak about his minimalistic approach in loudspeaker and electronics design. His loudspeakers are all high efficiency, point source designs with minimal or no crossover components at all. His electronics have the fewest stages as possible with the best possible components. John’s driving philosophy is that the best stage in the world is not as good as no stage at all. Inherent in simplicity is complexity.

Great systems are accomplished when the details are completed.

They are precision made of highly polished billet aluminum, solid Cherry and brass with steel bearings.”

We will have two adjoining rooms. One will have our “live” setup featuring the Daedalus Athena speakers and  brand new 30 watt tube SET mono blocks from ModWright. Our second “static” room will have headphone stations with the new ModWright Tryst headphone amp, and demos of the DiD. All cabling will be with WyWires and room treatment by GIK.

MWI will be introducing the following:

Ambrose A30 tube monoblocks.

30W Single Ended, EL34 based tube mono blocks.

Artisan flamed maple wood and AL enclosure, built by master woodworker Lou Hinkley of Daedalus Audio.
