Room Acoustics:
SteinMusic Harmonizers

It has been a while since we published our series on approaches to room acoustic treatments (links in second article below). Time for an update and discussion of a new product, the SteinMusic Harmonizers from Germany.

We have been chasing this intriguing product for a couple of years, but only this year have we had the opportunity to make our own in-house evaluations. It was worth the wait!

The SteinMusic Harmonizers are one of those products which is easier to demonstrate than to explain. Their effectiveness is obvious: the soundstage is more open and 3D, with more realistic images, and a more natural sound. Aaahh.

But how is this accomplished? Well the manufacturer proposes a theory, as opposed to a proven explanation, but it is a good theory:-) The best analogy is to moving a heavy object - let's say your car won't start and you have to push it on level ground. The hardest part is getting it moving. Once it is in motion it is much easier to keep it going than it was to first move it.

Holger Stein suggests that the SteinMusic Harmonizers are doing something similar with respect to the air molecules in the listening room. By stimulating these molecules, the air is better able to transfer sound.

A good theory, or it could be something else at work, but the important thing is that it DOES work, again and again, in every system we have tested. And it is not subtle. And it doesn't matter what else you are, or aren't, doing in the way of acoustic treatment in the room. It just plain works.

The basic product is a pair of 6" square Harmonizers named H2A and H2B. In a room of modest proportions, one in the front of the room and the other in the back of the room, each powered by an AC/DC "wall wart," or by standard batteries, and you will experience the magic. The Harmonizers should be placed on a piece of furniture, or you can use the optional stands costing $150 each if no furniture is available. In the basic "two Harmonizer package" (special package price $2099) there are seven 1.5" triangular shaped polycarbonate "Stones" included, which can be stuck to the room surfaces to magnify the effect of the Harmonizers. These are the "cream on the cake," the Harmonizers do most of the work.

For larger rooms, or to enhance the effect, you double up on the Harmonizers and put them in the 4 corners. The "four Harmonizer package" (special package price $3999) comes with 10 of the triangular stones.

If all of this leaves you feeling skeptical, that's ok. We don't take it personally! And we aren't suggesting you pick up the phone RIGHT NOW to order a set. But we do suggest that this is something you should consider trying for yourself, and we have samples available in our Library for this purpose. Check it out (literally). A very easy product to test for yourself.
