미국 Infinity 스피커시스템을 설립한 아니 누델(Arnie Nudell)이 최근 그의 설립 당시 파트너였으며 현재 PS Audio CEO이자 사장인 Paul McGowan을 통해 2018년도 Rocky Mountains전시회에서ㅠ 그의 최신 작품을 선보인다.
그의 인생의 마지막 10년을 최종적으로 남길 아마도 가장 훌륭한 작업인 한조의 프로토 타입 라우드스피커를 선 인다. 전설적인 Infinity IRS시스템보다 콤팩트한 Arnie의 프로토 타입은 듀얼 서보 제어 우퍼, 중저음 커플러, 미드 레인지 용 리본 라인 소스 및 하이엔드용으로 리본 트위터의 라인 소스를 사용하고 있다.
Arnie Nudell's Final Prototypes, and Bascom H. King
Boulder, CO: 10/2/2018--- PS Audio is proud to be exhibiting at the 15th annual Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, October 5-7, in the Spruce 1 suite, directly behind show registration on the first floor of the Denver Marriott Tech Center hotel.
Arnie Nudell, our longtime friend and mentor, founder of both Infinity Systems and Genesis Technologies, spent the last decade of his life refining and tuning a pair of prototype loudspeakers that were his final, and perhaps greatest work.
More compact than the legendary Infinity IRS, Arnie's prototypes utilize dual servo-controlled woofers, a mid-bass coupler, a ribbon line source for the midrange, and a line source of spiral ribbon tweeters for the high end.
Those lucky enough to have heard the speakers in his home—hand tuned and blessed by the master—were always in awe of its transparency and effortless presentation of music that seemed to float in space, as if the orchestra was right there in the room.
Certainly, the system was not without its failings: it was designed as a single person setup—the classic head in a vise syndrome. It required listeners to be in the far field, and it demanded a good size room. Its dual servo-controlled woofers would often kick a 20 amp breaker just keeping up.
But under the right circumstance, this was a magical system. Its core design parameters will become the basis of a new line of Arnie Nudell speakers PS Audio will launch under our own brand. But, sadly, Arnie's untimely passing prevented him from seeing this project through to completion.
We are moving forward with the new speaker line which we hope to debut near the end of 2019. Meanwhile, we offer those attending next week's Rocky Mountain Audio Fest a singular chance to experience these magnificent works of art.
This system, as pictured above, will be our setup at RMAF. We'll use as much of Arnie's original equipment as is practical: NBS, Shunyata, Synergistic Research cabling, BHK and DirectStream electronics, and Genesis servo amplifier.
Due to the fact we're going to have to set this up for a larger audience than one, and we don't have The Arnold to help us, you won't get the same experience as The Arnold would have, but you'll certainly get a taste of what the master himself was up to.
Present during the show will be Arnie's lifelong friend and colleague, designer of our extraordinary BHK line of electronics, Bascom H. King. PS Audio founder and CEO Paul McGowan will of course also be present.
This is your chance to meet BHK and Paul, and hear Arnie Nudell's final reference system. It's no exaggeration to say this is a once-in-a -lifetime event.
We welcome the US debut of the extraordinary hi-res streaming service Qobuz. To honor their arrival in America, all music played in the PS room during RMAF will be downloaded from Qobuz and played via Audirvana on a Mac mini.
