This product is a speaker which has been designed using time domain theory.
[What is time domain theory? ]
Time domain recreates the changes that occur in sound waves over time from the moment of output until their
disappearance. Its purpose is to reproduce those sound waves that are as close as possible to the original
recorded sound. Time domain audio systems which use time domain theory to improve sound reproduction allow
sound orientation and the nuances that are added by recorded performers to be faithfully reproduced.
