Meyer Sound’s New Acheron Studio Loudspeaker Offers Cinema Quality Reproduction in a Small Package
Meyer Sound has announced the newest member of the Cinema Experience line, the Acheron™ Studio, which brings the low distortion and transparency of the Acheron 80screen channel loudspeaker to a smaller package. Designed for use behind a perforated screen or for direct monitoring, the THX-approved Acheron Studio is a perfect choice for small cinemas, post-production, and private theatres. Soundtracks monitored on the Acheron Studio translate accurately into larger cinema systems, making the loudspeaker an equally ideal fit for re-recording rooms, sound design rooms, and music studio control rooms.
“Today’s cinema theatres range from a 6,000-seat theater to a 16-screen multiplex to a private screening room, but the important role that the soundtrack plays in the film experience remains the same in any venue,” says John Meyer, co-founder and CEO of Meyer Sound. “With technology like the space-friendly Acheron Studio loudspeaker, we can reproduce the information in a soundtrack with a remarkable degree of resolution to match today’s high-definition picture, meaning any punch and delicate nuance created in the sound design room or re-recording stage will be accurately delivered to the audience.”
The Acheron Studio boasts an impressive power-to-size ratio, with a maximum peak level of 134 dB SPL at one meter. Designed to help maintain a full LCR screen perspective in all seats, the Acheron Studio uses the same horn technology (patent pending) developed for the Acheron 80, and has an extremely well behaved 80-degree horizontal by 50-degree vertical coverage pattern with a soft off-axis roll-off.
The horn in the Acheron Studio is fixed within the enclosure to ensure an accurate acoustic crossover, phase response, and an incredibly consistent vertical pattern between the low and high frequencies. Bass power comes from a new 15-inch low-frequency driver optimized for the compact enclosure. The 580 Hz crossover point places most of the dialog in the horn, making it an ideal choice for cinema applications. The self-powered Acheron Studio features a convection-cooled amplifier with an impressive signal-to-noise ratio of more than 100 dB to provide the extremely low noise floor required in a studio environment. In addition, it is a plug-and-play system and allows for easy setup and installation.
All components in the Acheron Studio are designed and manufactured at Meyer Sound’s headquarters in Berkeley, Calif., where an Acheron Studio system is installed in the company’s award-winning Pearson Theatre for movie playback. Meyer Sound Cinema Experience products are installed in Bay Area's Skywalker Sound, ImageMovers Digital, and American Zoetrope, as well as USC School of Cinematic Arts and Atkinson Hall at University of California, San Diego.
