International Experiences from a New Sound System Approach

Document Thumbnail

QirraSound's new sound system approach benefits from a high level of intelligibility and substantially lower feedback. These properties help in placing loudspeakers behind the performers and thus minimizing the need for monitor speakers. Substantial empiric testing has been done in applications in multiple countries and applications and results from these tests will be presented. Listeners and performers report increased feel and intelligibility and even people with hearing loss and/or sensitivity to high sound levels can enjoy the sound. It has also been noticed that the ability to talk while music is playing is much better than with classical systems. An overall outline of these test results and feedback will be reported.
