A) Mimicry of the acoustics of natural instruments. Other speaker designers are making general purpose designs, which are a compromise. My first models are specifically for the violin family. They are increasing less suited to wind instruments, voice, plectrum instrumentsand least for percussion. I am working on wind and plectrum models. My system is not two channel because stereo as it is practiced is fake. The most critical part of the system is NO MIXING. Mixing is a spatial distortion. Rather, I rely on the OVOMOS principle: one voice, one mic, one speaker. Likewise, there is no splitting as in monitors. I have twelve speakers at Spectrum (four treble, three bass, five mid-bass). We also have two HiFi speakers and three PA type speakers, soon to be replaced with more of my experimental models.
