Audyssey MultEQ XT32 Awarded Stereophile Accessory of the Year(January 10, 2012)
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/10/12 -- Audyssey, a leader in consumer and professional audio, today announced that its newest and most advanced room correction technology, MultEQ XT32, has been named Stereophile's Joint Accessory of the Year for 2011. The original MultEQ revolutionized sound correction and a successive version, MultEQ XT, was bestowed the same Stereophile honor in 2008. MultEQ XT32's winning ways began at the 2011 CES when the technology earned a CES Innovations Award in the Enabling Technologies category.
"Stereophile is a leading authority in the high-end audio industry and we're very happy to be recognized with this award," said Chris Kyriakakis, Audyssey's CTO. "For years we've focused our research on finding and solving acoustical problems to enable the clearest, most precise sound reproduction and MultEQ XT32 is our most recent discovery."
The original MultEQ was designed to overcome acoustical problems in any room. By measuring sound in multiple locations for distortions caused by reflections, a highly room-specific equalization filter is designed and applied. The result is sound that is as close as possible to the original. Building on the principles of MultEQ, MultEQ XT32 uses ultra high-resolution filters and more than ten thousand control points to find and correct even the smallest problems to optimize listening for any space.
Much of MultEQ XT32's advancements specifically focus on distortions in the lower frequencies where most of the acoustical problems in home and car audio systems are found. This degree of correction was previously thought impossible but Audyssey researchers developed new mathematical methods to optimize the algorithm for many audio products. No other EQ method on the market is capable of this type of performance.
The connection between Audyssey and Stereophile is a natural one. Founded in 1962, Stereophile's monthly magazine (and now website and online community) regularly features reviews of the highest quality audio equipment. Stereophile's editors review the latest audio products all year long and award product of the year honors to the year's best products, accessories and recordings.
Established in 2002, Audyssey is the industry leader in research-based sound technologies for the professional and consumer audio marketplace. For more information, visit www.audyssey.com or follow us on Facebook.
