Part of a new series of affordable acoustical products developed by Russ Berger for Auralex Acoustics and unveiled at AES, pArtScience AudioTile ($499) redefines the aesthetics of acoustical absorption.
Tesselated forms present unlimited design possibilities for a sophisticated, custom appearance precisely tailored to the desired acoustical performance. Varying thickness built into each component delivers excellent broadband absorption, while the design patterns allow a unique means of blending absorption, diffusion and reflection for the optimum acoustical balance. Auralex’s proprietary Studiofoam formula provides superior durability and Class-B flame retardancy.
Another entry in the pArtScience line, SpaceArray ($399) combines excellent hemispherical acoustical diffusion with a top-quality wood finish. Based on a quasi-random series that provides superior performance without visual patterning, the SpaceArray is ideal for control rooms, auditoriums, performance venues, listening rooms, home theaters and worship spaces. Strong and lightweight, the beautiful 24x24-inch solid wood panels install easily and can be used in a variety of placement options.
