Is there anyone who has never asked him or herself, “How would my system behave with better electronics?”

System Components

Music Hall CD 25.2 digital transport, Sound Fusion Cd player shelves dedicated.

Further adjustment was not needed in the first hours after the system had been properly set up. All the same we placed the transport on a shelf made by Marlen Mogilever, director of R & D for Sound Fusion, a division of the Global Wood group.

This shelf is made up of two modules, the first of 2.7 cm (1 1/8″) plywood, with four brass and plastic cones set into the underside to provide coupling to ground. These four points rest on four Reference Vibe Booster I damping cups.

These damping cups are made of two different materials.
The centre is hard, to receive the point, and the periphery is soft, to provide damping.

A second shelf, made of acrylic 2 cm (3/4″) thick, sits on the wooden shelf, decoupled from it by four Reference Sound Booster III rubber pucks calibrated to accept the weight of a CD player.

The whole thing is a sort of monument dedicated to digital and is unpretentiously called a doublelevel CD platform.

Results

The difference we mentioned? A real improvement in two frequency ranges, the bass and the upper midrange.

The bass had new extension and firmness, voices were better defined and more natural.
The difference was flagrant as we went from one system to the other and back again.

The sound was less dry, smoother, and I loved the midrange, very natural with a nice height.

I’ve noticed in the past that missing detail seems to be the first thing we perceive in a comparative listening session.
For me anyway, going from a highperformance system to one a little less good is more revealing than going the other way.
I can evaluate an improvement and not just a difference.

The minuses

The extreme highs were slightly laid back, but this is being finicky.
Auditory memory being what it is, I am still thinking of our usual system as a reference.

We thought of trying something just to see what happened.

As we saw, the special shelves under the CD transport were in decoupling (soft) mode.
My idea: switch to coupled (hard) mode.

To do this, I removed the acrylic shelf and the four Sound Booster IIIs, then replaced the four Vibe Booster I cups with four aluminumandwood cups from our catalogue.

This setup put the bass and the lower mids on a muchneeded diet, which allowed the extreme highs to appear where they had been absent previously.

You read us right: decoupling supports under a CD player may well produce a rounder sound. a useful thing to know if that’s what you want.

To confirm our impression, we decided to test Mr. Mogilever’s shelf a little further by doing something he suggests: setting a Vibe Buster II or vibration hunter on top of the transport.

In fact we did get the best results with the Vibe Buster II on top of the CD transport, but without the Sound Fusion cups which cancelled some of the Vibe Busters’ effect.

Set up coupled/decoupled in this way, the CD player sounded more at ease.

The four points + wood shelf + four rubber decouplers + acrylic shelf + Vibe buster Sound Fusion on top of the CD transport.

Simply removing the Vibe Busters from this setup changed the bass response.

Keeping them or not was a question of taste. Some will like their full, ample low end and others will prefer a tighter bass with more slam, better defined and “cleaner”.
Whichever way you like it, the effect is there.



Nova SF-80 loudspeakers

Nova – a star that explodes producing a light 100,000 times brighter than the sun

You may have noticed glossy advertisements featuring unusual-looking loudspeakers by Sound Fusion, a new speaker company based near Toronto. Sound Fusion’s basic speaker is the two-way stand-mount Luna. The Nova is a Luna atop a bass tower. The Ariel is a powered Luna, and the Hyperion is a powered Nova. Sound Fusion is a branch of a large furniture corporation, and the construction quality of their speakers reflects the company’s experience with fine cabinetry. I received a review pair of Novas finished in beautifully patterned birdseye maple.

The organic shape of the Nova (right angles are nowhere to be found) is designed to reduce internal standing waves and edge diffraction, both of which blur transients. The beveled front and back baffles are shaped out of 3-centimeter-thick furniture-grade birch ply. They are attached to the cabinet with gaskets to provide further isolation from vibration. Finally, the drivers are fixed to a carved flange and another gasket before being fitted to the baffle. As a result, the drivers do not come into direct contact with the cabinet. The top cabinet is joined to the bass module, but is isolated by a 15-millimeter-thick slab of birch ply and gaskets. Knocking on the sides of the upper cabinet with my knuckles made a muted thud, while the bass tower produced a more resonant sound.

Optimal placement of the Novas was made difficult by the fact that two people are needed to move these 115-pound, top-heavy towers. I suggest using a dolly or hand truck to maneuver the speakers into their final positions. Then screw in the threaded brass spikes and slide the four compliant pucks underneath each spike. This puts the tweeters 47 inches from the floor, nearly 10 inches higher than the tweeters of my Marten Miles IIs. At first I thought that this would affect my listening position, but the wide dispersion patterns of the ribbon tweeters’ meant that the speakers let me remain in my favorite spot on the couch.

Ribbon tweeters are like a new Pat Metheny CD. I do not need to hear either to know I’m going to like them. The Novas’ highs extend to 60kHz, and their upper octaves sound remarkably clear, extended, and detailed. Listening to the Pat Metheny Group’s 2002 CD, Speaking of Now, I was impressed by the detailed sound of Antonio Sanchez’ drum kit. At times, his superb stick work on the ride cymbal sounded like fine grains of sand. His strikes on a cowbell, with their initial burst of energy and quick decay, were holographically projected between the speakers. Layers of guitar were rendered with individuality and coherence.

The Novas’ ability to sift out the fine detail from recordings was one of their strongest assets. Vivaldi’s Concerto in G for Two Mandolins by the Parley of Instruments (Hyperion 66160) was a revelation. In this music, the tweeters handle a great deal of information. Many speakers in this class can create a realistic-sounding illusion of a chamber orchestra, but the Sound Fusion Novas go to the next level by clearly distinguishing each mandolin and its musical lines. Even when the mandolins played the same notes at the same time, their images were uniquely rendered in space. The small orchestra was given light and space, resulting in a very pleasing musical experience.

Canada’s own Neil Young illustrated the Novas’ exceptional midrange performance on his recent DVD, Heart of Gold. At one point in the concert, Young is joined by six other acoustic guitar players, an autoharp, and a violin section. With many loudspeakers, this many instruments occupying the same frequency range would be a recipe for sonic mush, but the Novas had no trouble. Each instrument was coherently projected within a voluminous soundstage. Young’s unique voice has aged, but he can still reach high on tender ballads like Fallin’ Off the Face of the Earth.

Another recording that showcased the Novas was Congo Life by Kekele, a Congolese vocal quintet backed by guitar, accordion, and percussion. Kekele’s music is uncannily similar to Cuban son. I cannot understand their Congolese and French lyrics, but this is some of the most infectiously joyful music I have ever heard. The songs feature different solo instruments, including clarinets, alto sax, flute, and violin, and the Novas displayed all of them with excellent momentum and timing. Percussion instruments were vividly portrayed, with exceptional speed and coherence. The saxophone’s mixture of reed, air, and brass was displayed with great accuracy, and Vincent Hamandjian’s melodic, vibrant bass lines urged the music along.

Although the Novas’ midbass performance was well defined and dynamic, the low bass asserted itself only when the speakers were played at louder-than-normal levels. The speakers were as close to the rear wall as my furniture arrangement would allow-about 24 inches-but I think they would have benefited from even closer placement to reinforce the output from the front ports. While I enjoyed listening to Israel “Cachao” Lopez’ Master Sessions, Vol. 2, Cachao’s venerable bass viol lacked weight and depth. The speakers emphasized the agility of his fingers and the timbre of the strings over the warm overtones and bulky body of the instrument.

The Novas’ lean-ish low bass was also apparent with rock music, like Rush’s 1980 LP, Permanent Waves. Even though Geedy Lee is one of rock’s most gifted bassists, his playing usually covers the mid and upper bass frequencies, leaving the lows to Neil Peart’s massive drum set and synthesizer pedal tones. The Sound Fusion Novas recreated the music with explosive dynamics and fine resolution, with nary a hint of compression or distortion at loud volumes, but at normal listening levels, their low-end grip and subterranean pulse diminished.

Compared to my Marten Miles IIs, the Sound Fusion Novas are more revealing and extended in the top octave-so revealing that some of your favorite music may sound less satisfactory because surface noise, jitter, studio compression, and a host of other byproducts of the recording process will no longer be obscured. The Miles IIs’ twin-rear-port design produces more low bass authority. Both speakers are richly detailed and uncolored in the midrange-an absolute requirement in this price range. Musically speaking, the Novas are Alanis Morissette to the Martens’ Sarah McLaughlin. One speaker is lucent and energetic while the other is sultry and sensual. The policy at Positive Feedback is to evaluate products using associated components that are part of the reviewer’s stable system, but I regret not having a tube amp on hand to further explore the sonic possibilities of the Novas. The Sound Fusion Novas are a bold entry into the world of high-resolution audio. They will appeal to listeners who value fine detail, tremendous transient speed, and responsive dynamics.

Sound Fusion Luna SF-70 Loudspeakers

ULTRA AUDIO SELECT COMPONENT

My enthusiasm for high-end audio seems to be continually renewable. This is primarily because of what it adds to my enjoyment of music, but I also enjoy the technical side of the hobby, and learning about the gear and technologies that make the endeavor possible. Yet I am often disappointed with new products from new companies. So often, cleverly conceived ideas are poorly executed in practice, and the end result is something that doesn’t fulfill the promise. There have been times when I’ve wanted to say to a manufacturer, “Can you make sure the one you send me is right? Because I can imagine that not all of them are.” It’s a shame that I’ve been conditioned to expect that all will not be well with much of what I receive.

Not so with Sound Fusion and their Luna SF-70 loudspeaker ($10,100 CDN per pair). Sound Fusion is a relatively new Canadian loudspeaker manufacturer, established in 2002, whose core business background is in furniture manufacturing through its parent company, Global Wood Concepts. This bodes well for the end user of their loudspeakers — Sound Fusion has apparently bypassed the learning curve of how to make a finished commercial product. When the Lunas arrived, they were packaged already assembled, in crates that themselves were better constructed than many of the high-end products I’ve seen over the years. The speakers, at least visually and structurally, were all that they should be. But were they just pretty furniture?

Unpacking

Popping the top off the two large wooden crates in my garage revealed the strikingly attractive Luna SF-70s, already coupled to their substantial matching stands. Actually, this stand should be thought of as an integral part of the loudspeaker — it comes bolted to the bottom of the speaker cabinet itself, with which it forms a single solid unit. Speaking of the speaker cabinet, that is where much of Sound Fusion’s manufacturing expertise and innovation lie. Instead of an enclosure assembled from conventional flat panels joined at the edges, the Luna is constructed of many sheets of MDF joined face to face, starting at the baffle and extending to the cabinet rear. Think of a series of coasters turned on edge, their insides hollowed out, then stacked and glued together. According to Sound Fusion, this type of construction gives their drivers a nonresonant platform from which to work. It also gives the speakers a unique appearance. Their somewhat teardropped shape is veneered in either macore or walnut for a stunning — and inert — finished product.

The Luna’s front baffle is not just a flat panel, however. The 6.5″ Scan-Speak woofer is mounted to a circular subbaffle that stands out in relief from the loudspeaker’s face. The high-frequency driver mounted above it, in this case a true ribbon tweeter, is recessed from the plane of the woofer, its integral faceplate’s curve closely tracking the speaker cabinet’s upper contour. Sound Fusion’s literature doesn’t state that this slight recess is an attempt to time-align the drivers’ outputs, but that would make sense. Overall, the baffle consumes little more real estate than is needed to house the drivers.

Little construction details matter, and they are not overlooked in the Luna SF-70. The drivers are fastened with machine screws to the cabinets. In a speaker costing $6995/pair, wood screws would be unacceptable — they loosen over time, and if you have to replace a driver, the second time you drive screws into the same holes you stand a good chance of stripping the wood.

Below the cylindrical main cabinet is a rectangular box that extends the cabinet proper down to the stand. The rear of this lower cabinet houses two sets of nicely made five-way, gold-plated binding posts for biwiring (Sound Fusion does not recommend biamping). On this cabinet’s front, a large aluminum port juts out several inches from the face, and inside it is the speaker’s crossover network. Coupled together, the lower and upper cabinets comprise an impressive amount of internal volume for what is, essentially, a bookshelf speaker. With all of its interesting design flairs, the Luna SF-70 doesn’t look exorbitantly large, but there is a lot of speaker here. By no means is this a compact bookshelf speaker.

The stand is something to look at itself. Built of MDF-reinforced polyurethane and wood finished to match the speaker proper, it has its own interesting design features. A multi-ply plinth houses large brass spikes that fit into Vibe Buster 1s, Sound Fusion’s own vibration-damping floor couplers. The supports — two tubes and a curved wooden slat — combine for a look that has depth and dimension. The Luna has no speaker grille per se, but acrylic covers that protect the drivers when the speakers are not in use. These covers, when not in use themselves, can be snapped on to the rear baffle — a clever idea.

On its stand, the SF-70 measures 46″H x 15″W x 18″D and weighs 68 pounds. Sound Fusion rates the Luna with a sensitivity of 90dB, an impedance of 4 ohms, and a frequency response of 40Hz-60kHz. I suspect that most people will either love or hate this speaker’s looks. I found the Luna SF-70 more attractive in person than it appeared to me beforehand in photos.

Sound

Open, open, open. Listen to the Luna SF-70s with some acoustic guitar, such as that on “Sweet Euphoria,” from Chris Cornell’s Euphoria Morning [CD, Interscope 90412], and you’ll hear an open, peppy top end that lets you know you’re listening to an uncommon driver. The ribbon tweeter doesn’t hit you over the head with its presence, but it does produce music that washes over your ears with sound that is refined and energetic yet detailed and rich in ambience. I was able to easily hear all of the decay of the notes, the fingers rubbing on the strings, and the incisive leading edge of the instrument as Cornell played away. If, like me, you value detail retrieval, you’ll appreciate what the Luna does as well as what it doesn’t do: grate on your nerves. The ribbon element was very easy on the ears and produced no listener fatigue whatsoever. This is a fine line to walk — and, in my experience, a rarity.

The high frequencies were not meaty and sweet, like what you hear from Dynaudio’s Esotar tweeter, but were more extended, and by a long shot. I found that one key to getting the Luna’s ribbon tweeter to perform best was to use Sound Fusion’s Vibe Buster 1 floor couplers, which are provided. Once I had the speakers properly positioned, which involved a fair amount of shuffling and listening sans spikes, I added the Vibe Busters, which raised the tweeter about an inch. That additional height made the highs and mids jell perfectly, and took just a hint of edge off the very highest frequencies. Michael Bublé’s It’s Time [CD, Reprise 48946] displayed perfect transitions from detailed highs into a smooth midrange.

I don’t want to give the impression that the Luna’s highs were detached from the rest of the frequency spectrum, or that they were in any way harsh — that’s not what I heard. It’s just that if you’re used to conventional dome and cone tweeters, and then listen to the Lunas, you’ll hear something that sounds quite different. Over the days and weeks that I had the Lunas in my Music Vault listening room, I came to seriously appreciate what they were doing: providing detailed and clearly focused sound with any and all music I threw at them. Their overall performance became quite a comfortable and engaging thing to live with.

Continuing on, the midrange advanced seamlessly from what I’d first heard in the highs. Vocals were open and transparent, and transients were quickly handled without any apparent cabinet noise. Rosanne Cash’s “Western Wall,” from her Rules of Travel [CD, Capitol 37757], had just enough body and warmth to make her voice and the guitar accompaniment believable and present, while images within the quite expansive soundstage were painted with good depth and truly exceptional width. I could spread the Luna SF-70s quite far apart — which widened the soundstage from wall to wall — and not lose any specificity in the center of the stage. I loved the fact that I could close my eyes and the walls would not only seem to disappear, but the space around me would dramatically expand. Through it all, vocals that were center stage on my recordings stayed put in the center of my room. Imaging fanatics take note: You’ll cotton to this sound, so pull out all of those live, minimally miked recordings. They’ll sound lovely through the Lunas, which will give you a close approximation of the original venue if the recording allows.

The lower registers surprised me even if they didn’t truly satisfy my inner bass head. I listened to a number of recordings that opened my eyes and made me pay attention, due to the bass energy that the Lunas could produce. Enya’s Amarantine [CD, Reprise 49474], particularly the title track, has excellent bass depth and pitch, and only a speaker capable of producing well-delineated low frequencies can really reproduce it successfully. The Lunas could just do it — they energized “Amarantine” on a huge soundstage, with all of the flowing majesty of Enya’s music intact, lacking only the very last few hertz. That somewhat limited low-end extension could leave you hankering for just a touch more bass — especially since what this speaker did produce was so satisfying. By no means did it sacrifice quality for quantity. Still, if I were buying, and being the professed bass fanatic that I am, I would have to try the Luna’s larger brother, the lower-playing Nova. If all else remained sonically the same and the additional bucks were available, then why not?

Speaking of the Novas, both they and the Lunas are available as fully powered models, under the respective names of Hyperion and Ariel. Additionally, there’s a new entry-level design, the Horizon. There are also a number of speaker stands and equipment supports, and even more vibration-damping footers. Sound Fusion seems to have a rapidly expanding product line. Wonder what’s next?

Comparison

I finished reviewing the Silverline Grandeur Mk.II floorstanding loudspeakers ($15,000/pair) in April of this year. They could not be more different from the Lunas, physically and sonically. The Lunas embrace wood as they sit showing off their finely crafted furniture-grade appearance. The Silverlines are painted in a high-gloss automotive finish, are large floorstanders by anyone’s definition, and are sure to make a bold statement in a room.

The disparities in sound were even more striking. Besides my aforementioned comments regarding the differences between the Esotar tweeter and the Luna’s ribbon — the latter being much more extended and open than the bolder, sweeter-sounding Dynaudio — the differences between these speakers’ whole sound spectrums were great. The Luna presented a more present midrange, whereas the Silverlines are laid-back, even recessed, by comparison. Do you want your music out front, greeting you with a quick, precise character, or do you prefer a more distant quality that invites you to meet the music halfway?

The Silverlines are much bigger floorstanders with two additional bass drivers in each cabinet, so it’s no surprise that they play louder and lower than the Lunas, and are better with hard rock played at rock-type levels — their bass and midbass will punch you in the gut with a Metallica kick-drum. The Silverlines also cost a lot more. A better comparison in terms of sound, price, and size would have been Sound Fusion’s own Nova, mentioned earlier. Still, the Lunas were able to cast a larger soundstage, and communicated the ambient features of live recordings in a clearly superior way. Their midrange was more front and center, making male and female vocals rich with information, and their imaging was about as good as you’ll hear from any pair of speakers.

Conclusion

I’m glad to not damn the Sound Fusion Luna SF-70 with faint praise by saying that it’s a unique product from a company with a lot of promise. The speaker is that, but there’s so much more. Their promise was clearly realized before the Lunas got to me. Sound Fusion is producing wholly realized speakers that are ready for prime time now. They obviously design and engineer their speakers with skill, and they manufacture them with precision. They even ship them in a manner that a customer, or a reviewer, will appreciate: the quality of their packaging is an extension of the quality with which they build their speakers.

Whether the Luna SF-70’s sound and appearance will appeal to you are, as always, things you’ll have to decide for yourself. But if what you see in the accompanying photo and what I’ve described of their performance are to your liking, I can bet that, once you get them in front of you, in the flesh, you won’t be disappointed. These speakers are really, really good in the here and now, and deserve all the attention they can get. I enjoyed every minute I spent with them.



Hearing Noises in Your Attic at Night? You May Have Wild Animals in Your Attic

Are you hearing noises in your attic at night? Don’t be threatened, but you may have wild animals in your attic. The uninvited guests on your attic might even leave out evidence that they have taken residence in your attic by leaving a mark on your attic floor like animal waste or scratches. The presence of wild animals in your attic isn’t always necessarily a bad occurrence since these animals are generally non-life threatening creatures. However, the constant noise can be distracting and the animal poop that they leave is totally unhygienic, plus they can slowly wear down the structure of your home.

If you haven’t been able to confirm what kind of animal is living rent-free on your attic, you can begin your investigation by confirming if there are animal feces that have been left behind. Upon confirming the presence of animals on your attic, it is vital to secure the entrances of your attic in order to avoid further infiltration as the scent left behind by these animals can call in some more of their kind or they can be smelled by predators who would want them as snacks. Therefore, it is important to avoid any more possible animal invasions. There are various animals that can find their way into your home and it is important that you know how they got there, the trail they leave behind, and how you can get them out.

The most common pest around the house is rats and mice. They can get to your home no matter how safely you secure your premises due to their tiny structure. Rats are generally nocturnal creatures so you might sense their presence, particularly strong during the nighttime and you can confirm their existence through rat poop trail or because of the strong odor of their urine. If you want to discard rats and mice, it is best to trap them and block off even the tiniest entryway to your home. Consequently, if you have mice running around your attic, predators like snake will become attracted to take residence in your attic, as well. You can probably hear hissing noises if there is a snake in your home, but snakes would not be common guests since they aren’t pretty talented climbers. However, if you find snake skin lying around, be wary of their presence since they are just around the corner. For snake removal, it might be better to call a professional to take them. In addition to these animals, you might also find yourself as an unwanted host to a colony of nocturnal bats who found their way into your attic. Bats are generally quiet creatures, but they can start producing noise once they are fighting for a space in your ceiling. If you find several brown looking grains, these are probably bat poop and it is the best time to call for professional bat removal teams since it is important to not kill any of the bats. There are several other animals that can infiltrate your home such as squirrels, raccoons, or pigeons, and it might come as a surprise to you that most animals give birth on your attic. This can lead to a severe growth in the number of animals living in your attic, hence, producing even more noise than usual. It is best to secure any possible entrances and to remove them as soon as possible to ensure population control.

Benefits Of Going Green With Attic Insulation

Regardless of whether a homeowner has new or old home Going Green With Attic Insulation will help him save money on energy bills, increase his home value, and make his home more comfortable through temperature regulation. It is believed that most homeowners are losing money on energy simply because they don’t have enough insulation in their home’s attic. That said here are benefits a homeowner will get by insulating his home’s attic.

Reduced utility bills

The significant advantage the homeowner will get by Going Green With Attic Insulation is saving on his energy bills. This is because his air condition or the heating system won’t get strained in regulating the temperature of his house. More energy is wasted when there are gaps in the attic or when the attic has no insulation. By conserving the heat, the owner of the house will directly reduce his consumption of energy thus resulting to low energy bills. Additionally, this is an environmental measure that also helps in saving money.

The home’s worth

As the homeowner insulates his home attic, it will present him with an opportunity of enhancing the value of his property. Any buyer would prefer to buy a home with insulated attic for which is an appealing proposition for people who are searching for energy efficient houses. Thus making a small investment today, the homeowner can reap benefits any time he decides to sell his home.

The home’s temperature adjustment

On the absence of an insulated attic the owner’s home heat will keep moving forward and backward during the hot and cold weather which is not comfortable to live in such a house. Also, when there are gaps in his home’s insulation the temperature would significantly change thus causing discomfort to people living inside. As a result, it will be better he avails the service of a competent roofing contractor to insulate his attic this will ensure there is the even temperature in his house at all times.

Tax benefits

There are tax benefits given to homeowners by the department of energy. Whereby the owner will get entitled to a tax credit of up to 30% which will amount to a credit worth of hundreds of dollars when he gets his home insulated. For additional information and required documentation he can check with the department of energy.

Get extra space

Once the homeowner insulates his home’s attic he could use it for other purposes than just storage. For example, he may decide to use it as an office or a bedroom. Depending on the attics size and design he may also utilize its space like a gym or the kid’s playroom thus allowing him to make the most of the available space.

Conclusion

Numerous homes, especially older ones, lack proper insulation. When the homeowner decides on Going Green With Attic Insulation, he will have the opportunity of enhancing the worth of his home and put his home’s attic space in proper use. Furthermore, he will avail tax incentives benefits offered by the government and will be able to reduce his energy bills. The homeowner should know that this process does not take long.
