The Most Beautiful Sound You Will Never See.
Beauty is in the eye. The ear. And even the soul. It is sound you don’t just hear, but feel. Sound that inspires and moves you. Sound you love.
Derived from an experiment in immersive audio by the British Ministry of Defence in the early 1980s, Vibrational Panel Technology allows a loudspeaker cone to be replaced by a flat panel. This creates a complex series of ‘tuned’ surface vibrations which generate acoustic energy. This is very similar to the way in which an acoustic musical instrument works.
ROOM FILLING SOUND
Unlike a conventional loudspeaker cone, VPT loudspeakers generate what is known as an incoherent-phase waveform. This means that the acoustic energy generated by the panel interacts in a summative way with the room reflections, leading to an incredibly smooth room-filling sound rather than the typical hot spots and tonal colouration associated with direct phase correlation.
With a complex array of vibrations and associated incoherent-phase waveform, a VPT loudspeaker has the incredible benefit of full 180° audio dispersion. This means that whether you are stood directly underneath an Amina loudspeaker, or on the opposite side of the room, you will experience the exact same sound quality. This is unlike a conventional loudspeaker which becomes very directional at high frequencies.
It is a myth that invisible loudspeakers are limited in audio performance. The general assumption is that by being positioned behind plaster or other finishing material, the speaker sounds ‘muffled’. This is just not true and has to be experienced to be believed. The loudspeaker works with the covering material to generate incredible detail and clarity. With advancements in panel materials, Amina loudspeakers can also produce incredible bass.
