June 2022 Meeting Notice: DaS AuReality Demo

We are returning to the SAE Institute!

The next in-person meeting of the AES Melbourne Section will be held on
Monday 20th June 2022 at 7:30pm, in the SAE Institute Lecture Theatre, South Melbourne.

*Note – there will be NO live online element to this meeting.

Joe Hayes, Inventor and CTO of Vastigo Ltd, will conduct a
Live Demonstration

of his DaS AuReality (Diffusion at Source) loudspeaker systems.

Vastigo V10 Demo Speakers
NewAudio AS8 Speaker

Joe invites everyone to bring along their favourite critical listening music (Audio CD format only) to exercise the system.

In October 2021, Joe spoke to us via Zoom on his patent applied for DaS AuReality technology in a talk with the title:
From Stradivarius to Speaker – technology for improvements in sound delivery and room acoustics treatment.

In this second session, Joe will briefly review the background and developments leading to DaS AuReality and some of the implementation challenges and successes along the way and will then demonstrate the technology.

DaS Reality Overview:
We are familiar with a well-designed concert hall having clarity of performance without hard echoes and a balanced enveloping sound field.
We seek to capture this in our recording and listening experiences, but we often must put up with less-than-ideal acoustic environments.

What if the enveloping experience could be recreated directly from the loudspeaker without the need for the concert hall? And what if the recreated sound field did not detract from the initially arriving direct sound but could mask and improve the inevitable echoes and reflections of the typical less than the ideal listening environment?

DaS AuReality technology tackles this. The direct sound is preserved, but rather than remove information destined for uncontrolled reflections DaS AuReality creates an ideally balanced reverberant field prior to the intervention of room acoustics, and so without hard echoes and associated distractors. 

The room then faithfully (or irreverently) conveys these to the listener. 

The result is improved clarity and immersion with less room acoustics influence and less perception of ’sound from a loudspeaker source’ for all surround sound formats

About Joe Hayes:

A Sydney based musician and inventor, Joe Hayes understands musical acoustic delivery.
Joe has exploited his knowledge of physics, mathematics, and psychoacoustics to make a breakthrough in audio playback technology, leading to the development of the principles of Diffusion at Source (DaS).
He has had decades of experience designing and manufacturing innovative products for musicians such as his PASSAC midi sentient 6 Unity 8 mixer and EC1 equaliser pre-amps, teaming with Larry Fishman and Martin guitars amongst others for the world market. Joe’s motivation for DaS was to better deliver the live Stradivarius experience.
