The Science of Resonance Energy Transfer
All products driven by an electronic and/or mechanical means have characteristics known as vibrations forming resonant energy, which greatly inhibits the overall performance of said product.
Live-Vibe Technology™ is based on the science of resonance energy transfer via a high-speed calculated conductive pathway to earth's ground thus limiting and controlling vibration creating a more efficient result.
In our world of recording and playback processes involving voice, music, video and sound, there lies a hidden detriment known as vibration that develops and extremely limits the performance of the equipment used throughout the process. Lost forever are pure dynamics, frequency response, and detailed information related to sonic and visual performance of your equipment. Keep in mind that the human emotional experience related to music sound and video involve pure dynamics geared for human consumption and the enjoyment thereof.
Home theaters, stereo hi-fi systems, concert sound systems and modern recording studio equipment are heavily influenced by resonance energy (vibration) constantly being developed on and within the products. In systems using more than one component, the effect from vibration on each component has a multiplying negative effect ravaging the equipment of dynamics and raw energy.
For a basic understanding of vibration and resonant energy, we have broken them down into three categories:
The basic electrical circuit is designed on computers and manufactured in Clean Rooms without knowing how and what types of vibration will affect the outcome of the circuit. As soon as we plug in and pass electricity across the circuit, it vibrates thus creating inefficiency within the device, itself.
All audio and visual components contain the usual steel or aluminum framework surrounded by metal, plastic and/or wood shell. Each device has a power supply containing a transformer that once activated hums or vibrates at multiple frequencies, both audible and inaudible, thus creating resonance within and across the chassis. Add this type of interference to the Electronic Vibration and we create more inefficiency within the component.
We love to increase volume to reflect that of the "live performance." Immediately upon activating the volume control, no matter how small or large the listening venue, the acoustic waveforms created by the loudspeakers not only vibrate the speaker and speaker enclosures, but every other component integrated into the system including the walls, floors and ceiling.
This form of vibration includes wide frequency ranges and alternating differences in volumes thus creating even more detrimental resonance across the entire system.
Combining the three aforementioned energies, we now have created a chain of resonance vibration, which inhibits the quality of reproduction that is designed into the equipment, itself.
Everyone who owns a stereo hi-fi system, home theater, TV or Projection TV, guitar amplifier, keyboards, digital effects - anything requiring a plug and/or energy to function possesses a tremendous amount of sound and visual quality that remains totally undetected. Since you have paid for or are still paying for your investment, consider the following; before spending more money on other component selections, thinking you need better equipment (manufacturers love when you do this) - we recommend increasing your overall enjoyment by taking full advantage of the equipment you already own.
UNDERSTANDING and DEFINING SIMPLE PHYSICS
Physics dictates that all energy seeks earth's ground via the quickest method it derives. The big three ACOUSTICAL, ELECTRICAL and MECHANICAL vibrations are continually seeking and slowly finding ground as we watch and listen to our components each second of every day.
Until now industry always focused on the principles of absorption, damping and isolation using products like rubber materials, foam, sand, lead and Fiberglass to dispose of unwanted vibration. The old idiom of treating a wound requiring stitches with a Band-Aid™.
Isolation racking made from any wood species vibrates discharging resonant audible feedback back into the room yielding a detrimental additive into the harmonic structure of the components and listening environment. Woods alter or color the sound of the system.
Acrylics and stone materials both reflect and absorb resonance and, similar to woods, are dependent on the environmental humidity and temperature remaining constant. Any variances in environmental state (i.e. change in temperature or humidity) will cause this class of materials to respond differently and inconsistently, affecting and ever-changing the overall sound product of the components and loudspeakers.
These techniques are used as a quick fix, limited at best. It is the ongoing problem of understanding how raw materials vibrate and how resonance inhibits the efficiency of products that have the potential to relate directly to each and every one of us on an emotional level.
Ask yourself, would I attach a piece of foam to a violin, use lead or stone for a guitar neck or coat a drum with rubber and get the same or better sonic result as without?
TAKE YOUR OWN LISTENING TEST:
Simply go to a wall, place your ear next to it and knock on the surface. You will hear a live sound with a wide dynamic frequency range. Now place a piece of foam or a large sponge next to the same spot and hit the wall again. You will notice a muffled or dampened sound. Which do you prefer – LIVE DYNAMICS or Dead Harmonics.
If you love music, sound and video, we would hope you agree live and vibrant is the preferred choice.
Star Sound Technologies, LLC has discovered mechanical and electronic methods that provide high-speed channels for vibrating resonant energy to locate earth's ground, maintaining the live, powerful and emotional feel of sound quality to which humans are naturally drawn to, without coloring the resulting experience.
We call this fresh source of understanding LIVE-VIBE TECHNOLOGY™.
Our products and technology are based on transferring vibration (also known as Coulomb's Friction) rapidly to ground –not simply damping–, providing a new level of operational efficiency within any given component.
Listeners have come to appreciate the low-cost high yielding effects in musical quality when applying our products into their sound environment.
