Your acoustical transformational upgrade

Before there was UEF Tech there was Acoustic ART (Analogue Room Treatment), Synergistic Research first foray into the field of sympathetic resonance as an alternate means of treating room acoustics.

Vibratron is a handmade multi-frequency resonator which anchors the focal point of your sound field to your listening room, expanding and clarifying your listening experience.

Vibratron works by resonating in response to acoustic pressure created by your speakers. When excited, Vibratron radiates even-order harmonics in a 360 degree wave pattern in sympathy with the music, focusing and expanding the soundstage. Additionally, Vibratron improves your room’s acoustic response to music creating a more organic and musical sound. Acoustic instruments sound more natural with organic timbre and the entire vocal range sounds more present and three-dimensional.

To get the most from the Vibratron, it is highly recommended that you consult with either us or your dealer who will advise you on placement as well as other acoustic components, like SR; HFT's, Black Box and Atmosphere generators, that work synergistically together to create a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

How to set up your Vibratron(s)

1. Place the Vibratron between the speakers, at a distance of 60-180 cm from the back wall. If the rod is not perpendicular to the floor, you can spin the entire stand until it is straight.
2. Slide the gold Vibratron onto the stand, adjust its position so that it’s at eye/ear level when listening to the system, and lock into place with the set screw and included wrench.
3. Play a familiar song with a natural-sounding vocal in the center of the soundstage.
4. Pay attention to the focus of the center of the soundstage. Then move the Vibratron up by 2.5 cm and listen. Then move the Vibratron down 2.5 cm and listen.
5. Continue to move the Vibratron 2.5 cm at a time, in which ever direction is providing the best results, until the results are worse. Then return the Vibratron to the most recent placement.
6. To fine tune, now listen to the Vibratron 1 cm higher and then 1 cm lower. Choose the position that produces the most natural, precise, and focused center stage.
7. Slide the Chrome Vibratron onto the stand and lock it in place at the very top of the stand.
8. Play the same song and move the chrome Vibratron down 1 cm at a time until you find the best position.
9. Focus on soundstage height, extension, and overall tonality.

The final result should be a natural, precise, and focused center stage while maintaining a large, layered, and 3-dimensional soundstage.
Note: in most cases, both the Gold and Chrome Vibratron will remain within 7.5 cm of their starting locations.

Reviews (of the original Acoustic ART System):

SA Guilty Pleasures by Wayne Donnelly @ Enjoy the
"The improved in-room performance I have experienced after installing those little resonating bowls is as significant as any component upgrade I have made, and I urge any listener searching for significant aural refinement to audition this unique approach to room treatment."

In a demystification of the workings of the Synergistic Research Acoustic ART by Norm Luttbeg @
"... none has been so overwhelmingly beneficial. In fact, after I reported what I heard to a doubting group at breakfast the day after my experience in the RMAF demonstration, they made their way to the Synergistic Research Acoustic ART demonstration and all but one bought show specials, even though some are quite frugal. Recommended!"

Synergistic Research Acoustic ART Real-Time Analogue Room Treatment Review by Jack Roberts @
" conclusion the Acoustic ART system does some very special things for the sound of a room."

Synergistic Research - Acoustic Art Room Treatment System by ericarjes @ forum
"There is no way I am going back to using traditional bass traps, room traps, triangular pillows and sculptured foam, that ended up destroying too much of the music. The cost of my Acoustic ART system was half of what outfitting my room with conventional traps cost me, and yet the ART system produces a degree of quality that I was never able to obtain from the traps I used to have. There is also no way I plan to continue listening in an untreated room. I consider good room treatment an essential component in a serious music system. The Acoustic ART was one of the best purchases I've made in audio."
