Don Keele talked about his loudspeaker line arrays based on CBT technology. He believes the CBT know-how can vastly improve the sound field uniformity of existing line arrays and conventional loudspeaker systems. Don discussed the background and history of CBT arrays and described the measurement and simulation results of several CBT line arrays including the Audio Artistry CBT36 high-end home loudspeaker. Later, after the talk, Don demonstrated the Audio Artistry CBT36 high-end home loudspeakers by playing musical excerpts and comparing the sound of the live drum performance by John Marque with a recording of the identical musical part.
