HFT High Frequency Transducer

Every room has a sonic signature or sound. This sound goes beyond what can be measured with traditional acoustic measurement software., beyond standing waves and beyond the amount of time it takes a specific frequency to decay 60 decibels. The sound of a room is literally made up of hundreds, if not thousands of resonators all reacting to the energy your stereo creates. Each piece of furniture, the walls, the ceiling, equipment racks, light fixtures, knick knacks and even your speaker cabinets and the enclosures of your components all resonate out of tune with the music your system is trying to recreate. Think of it this way. Your room and its furniture are like one big instrument with 500 strings. Every time your speakers create a note these strings are being excited and that's the problem, not one of those 500 strings are in tune. In fact they are all resonating out of tune distorting your music. The resonance of your listening room is literally pushing back on your soundstage, compressing the air and decay of notes and distorting fundamental harmonics in your favorite music. This is why most systems have soundstages that primarily exist in and around the speakers with a phantom center image that follows your head as you move between the speakers. This is also why many systems are set up like a pair of gigantic headphones with lots of speaker toe in creating one narrow sweet spot that prevents you from sharing the joy of music with others (unless of course you enjoy listening to music with your head bolt upright in one position and a friend sitting on your lap).

So what to do? In the past the answer was to dampen a room with acoustic absorption until it measures flat while redirecting reflections with diffusers. Unfortunately neither of these solutions address the real concern which is how to make your listening room sound like music. Dampened rooms sound dead with little or no decay. While diffusers render a sound with little sense of the live hall even when recordings are capable of recreating breathtaking soundscapes if only your acoustics would allow. Obviously spaces designed for unamplified acoustic performances would never rely on dampening and diffusion alone. Over dampen a theater and you won't be able to hear the subtleties of a solo guitar or the breath of a woman's voice or the intonation of a piano beyond the primary notes. This is why the best venues are somewhat live with reverberations that compliment and never detract from the performers and their instruments. Were amphitheaters voiced like the average audiophile's listening room it would have thousands of surfaces resonating out of tune with the music, interspersed with absorption that makes all but a few seats sound like mud with little to no subtle detail. In fact the acoustic noise floor in such a room actually increases as the volume of music increases and this in turn prevent most people from ever experiencing the magic of music.

A New Answer: HFTs are tiny high frequency transducers that clean up high frequency harmonics in your listening room. You see harmonics are interconnected so when you effect harmonics beyond the limits of human hearing, you also affect lower frequency harmonics we can hear. HFTs literally cancel harmonic noise on any surface they are placed. And as you follow their easy placement guidelines, 5 HFTs at a time, you systematically overcome your rooms tendency to fight with your system and the music by replacing random out of tune resonance with sympathetic resonance that compliments the music. Just 5 HFTs can create a meaningful improvement to the average listening room, while additional HFT 5 pacs improve your listening enjoyment further until you ultimately bring your entire listening room in sync with the music.

Application: HFTs are placed not only on walls and ceilings, but also on the vibrating surfaces of your speakers and components for noticeable benefits that accumulate as you add additional HFTs. In our experience most listening rooms and systems reach a point of diminishing returns when three to five HFT 5 pacs are used as outlined in our easy to follow placement instructions.

EMI and RFI: The other menace negatively affecting the sound of your listening room is RFI and EMI created by among other things, Wi Fi, cell phones, florescent and LED lighting, basically anything that has an on off switch in your home. In fact the negative effects of RFI and EMI are why your system sounds better late at night than it does mid day; there are simply not as many active devices emitting RFI and EMI to mess up the sound of your system. Enter the Active FEQ, an ultra low frequency RF pulse generator that acts as a low frequency dither to overpower the ambient RFI and EMI fields in your listening room. Simply plug the FEQ and its internal Ground-Plane into two separate wall sockets in your listening room. Then place the FEQ behind and between your two main speakers. Now turn it on for an immediate and unmistakable improvement to sound. In fact one FEQ will improve an average listening room all by itself with no HFTs present. But the real magic begins when you place both an Active FEQ and passive HFTs in same room. Now all HFTs in a room are excited by the ULF pulse generated by the FEQ so their action is amplified. Subjective benefits of the FEQ are heard as an expansion of the soundstage, a lowering of the noise floor and a noticeable improvement in low frequency extension and control.

Hearing is believing: We know that for many our claims will sound too good to be true and you're probably asking yourself, "how can anything as small as an HFT improve my listening room" and "how can a little black box placed between my speakers expand my soundstage or improve low frequencies?". We understand. Quite frankly anyone who has not heard HFT or FEQ in their listening room would be wise to ask these questions. This is why we offer HFT and FEQ with a no-risk 30-day money back guarantee so anyone who wants to experience an amazing and cost effective improvement to their systems can do so. Synergistic Research is a 21 year old company with a history of innovation. We pioneered the high end power cord market with our AC Master Coupler back in 1994, we developed the worlds first Actively Shielded cables in 1998, developed the world's first Active EM cell as found in our PowerCells and Tranquility Bases, but nothing we have ever developed can even come close to our new HFT and FEQ. These are quite frankly our Lead Designer Ted Denney's crowning achievement and we want everyone to experience them first hand.
