BSG Technologies Signal Completion Stage:
A bit about this great technology.
Many scientists, engineers, reviewers and audiophiles long have recognized that natural, real sound has something that we never hear when sound is reproduced through electronics. In the search for sonic realism, most have assumed we could approach reality if components continue to improve.
WHAT IF THE PROBLEM IS NOT IN OUR COMPONENTS, BUT IN THE SIGNALS they retrieve and reproduce?
In nature, "Sound DNA" consists of three key elements: Amplitude--its gradations, maximums and minimums; Frequency--the highs, mids and lows, including all the harmonics; and Phase--the cues that tell us the direction and distance from which sound is coming, the acoustic signature of the space where it is made, which source is closer than another--in short, the "geography of sound."
All these elements interact and are instantly interpreted by the human ear/brain combination. If that were not "hard wired" into the human auditory system, cavemen would have had difficulty determining which way to run when hunting or being hunted.
Electronics do not work like the human ear/brain. As a result of cancellation effects within electronics, the phase information is not reproduced. Thus, no matter how well components do with frequency and amplitude response (and these days, many of them do very well), we will be robbed of realism and naturalism unless the phase information within all signals can also be reproduced.
Many attempts have been made to reproduce the space, air, solidity and directionality that are parts of complete sound in nature. The best of them is stereo itself, but the illusion it creates is incomplete. The entire processor industry is built upon synthesizing the missing information, but the ear/brain combination "knows" the information is "false."
The only way to get natural, complete information requires uncovering and reproducing through electronics the natural phase information that has been hidden and buried in every signal. After seven years of research and experimentation, BGST succeeded! For the first time, ALL the fundamental elements of sound, including those previously hidden and buried, can be retrieved and reproduced. Hence, we believe--and think you will agree--that bsg technologies' qøl(TM) technology is the most significant advance in audio in decades.
The qøl? Signal Completion Stage is an entirely new category of high-end component.
