Frankfurt, Germany (March 23, 2009)–Auralex Acoustics is now offering a retail kit that complements the company’s Room Analysis Plus program for off-site analysis. The new in-store Room Analysis Kit is a package that provides the tools needed to acoustically analyze any room. It will be on display at the upcoming Musikmesse show.
Auralex’s in-store Room Analysis Kit, based on the existing Room Analysis Plus Program, includes a Behringer ECM8000 omni-directional measurement microphone, a USB drive featuring swept sine signals and an instructional guide. It is available through Auralex’s dealer network.
“The Room Analysis Kit provides our customers with all the additional equipment necessary for our Room Analysis Plus Program, in order to accurately capture any sound anomalies and conveniently send the information directly to Auralex’s lead acoustical engineers to analyze,” says David Paxton, director of operations at Auralex Acoustics. “As a staple of Auralex’s technical service, the downloadable Free Room Analysis Form will still be readily available to our customers through our website. Based on the need for a more thorough, in-depth diagnosis of room problems, we created a retail-friendly version of our Room Analysis Plus program that can easily be purchased through our established dealers.”
The Room Analysis Plus Program is an off-site analysis service that allows consumers to download an audio file featuring a swept sine signal from 20 Hz to 20 kHz from the provided USB. With the new kit, users can record the sweep with the Behringer ECM8000 omni-directional measurement microphone in the location of the room in question. All files can be sent via e-mail, along with the included Personalized Room Analysis Form, to Auralex for examination by its acoustical engineering staff. Frequency response, impulse response, waterfall plots and reverberation time values can all be generated from this service. A written report will be presented back to the user within three to five business days outlining the acoustical issues and how to solve them.
“By offering Room Analysis Plus as a retail product, Auralex is able to provide consumers with a convenient and cost-effective solution to diagnosing and treating acoustical inaccuracies,” adds Lead Acoustical Engineer Gavin Haverstick. “Through Room Analysis Plus we can pinpoint the acoustical anomalies of any room through direct sound measurements to more accurately analyze the space and provide the best treatment solutions.”
