Steven Klein SCR (Sherman Oaks, Calif.) announced a new product to control sound within a wide range of control room, production facility or monitoring environments. The Saturn Polycylindrical Diffusor can be placed on walls or ceiling and, asits name suggest, re-radiates sound energy through an angle of 120 degrees; a similar flat element re-radiates sound at a much smaller angle of 20 degrees.
"The polycylindrical-shaped diffusor has been used for centuries," said company president Steven Klein, "and is commonly found in acoustic environments and pre-modern recording studios. Recently, polycylindrical diffusors have been overshadowed by more complex costly diffusors, which produce frequency shift. Often what is required is a less-costly, less-'Q'-type diffusion. The Saturn's polycylindrical shape is another valuable tool available to acoustic designers. It is an extremely effective diffusion element, and is easy to install with a dramatic visual impact." Fabricated in a choice of black or white ABS plastic, the unit measures 23.75x23.75x5 inches deep, and can be placed in a ceiling grid or directly onto walls.
