Goldmund Introduces Audio Processor Capable of Infinite Discrete Channels
Goldmund has announced the creation of a new processor, the Goldmund U-32, which is capable of extending to an infinite number of discrete channels. No word on the exact cost of the U-32, but considering the high-end track record of Goldmund (ie: the $300,000 turntable and $17,000 Blu-ray player), we're guessing more than a pretty penny.
Goldmund, the same company that took the groundbreaking approach of using multi-channel processors with up to 32 channels, an innovation required to create the ultimate home theater experience, the Goldmund Media Room, have delivered a processor capable of reaching an unlimited number of channels. The Goldmund U-32 was created to meet the demands of Goldmund clients looking to build larger media rooms that can seat up to 50 guests.
The new Goldmund U-32 Processor includes a set of high-power digital signal processors (DSP) capable of more than 50 times the strength of its predecessors. When paired with the recently announced U-Telos family of amplifiers, which is capable of achieving an ideal crossover for the associated speaker with full time delay correction and a signal measurement feature to control the protection of each driver it operates, the Goldmund U-32 can reach an infinite number of discreet channels, which is necessary to properly reproduce extreme surround-sound accuracy in a very large Goldmund Media Room. The U-32 is ideal for bringing the Goldmund Media Room technology into commercial screening rooms, hotels and resort settings.
Goldmund Media Rooms using the new Goldmund U-32 Processor will provide perfect seamless surround sound by enveloping each individual user with a higher than usual number of speakers, each being smaller and less expensive, each non-audible separately, but together capable of providing each user with sound levels up to 130dB at all frequencies.
“Our clients have increasingly been requesting that we go bigger than Goldmund has ever gone before,” said Michel Reverchon, president of Goldmund. “Now with the new Goldmund U-32 processor, there is unlimited potential as to how far we can take the perfection of the Goldmund Media Room.”
