Legacy to Showcase New Technology in VALOR Speaker at RMAF 2017

Legacy to Showcase New Technology in VALOR Speaker at RMAF 2017

(Springfield, IL) – Legacy Audio will premiere the new VALOR loudspeaker system in Evergreen Ballroom A at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. Powered by an incredible 2750 watts per side, the VALOR is first to employ STEREO UNFOLD technology licensed from Bohmer Audio® of Sweden. By combining a controlled- directivity front array for the initial wave-launch and a side/rear -firing ambient array, VALOR is able to reconstruct the natural sequence of sound arrival of the performance space.

Precise spatial cues key to imaging are typically masked by early listening room reflections, while desirable late reflections that provide the dimensions and presence of the recording venue are either smeared or fade prematurely. The strategically shaped, dual radiation patterns generated by the VALOR system reduce early reflection in the direct field, thus unmasking critical spatial cues, while Wavelet’s STEREO UNFOLD algorithm identifies ambient information and restores it to proper time and level in the diffuse field.

 

Legacy’s sophisticated Wavelet Preamp/DAC/Processor provides time alignment and crossover functions for the four-way system while hosting SPDIF, Toslink and USB digital inputs and 2 pair each of balanced and unbalanced inputs.


Legacy’s Chief Designer Engineer, Bill Dudleston, will provide demonstrations of this extraordinary new technology at 11am, 1pm and 3pm daily in Evergreen Ballroom A at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest.
