“Partnering with Onkyo to develop the iLunar model with our Absolute 3D sound technology has been a wonderful experience,”
Founded by audio experts, Dr.-Ing Renato S. Pellegrini and Dr. sc. techn. Matthias Rosenthal, Sonic Emotion’s Absolute 3D sound technology was developed from the concept of sound field control through the application of expertise in four fundamental aspects of 3D sound: wave field synthesis, spatial analysis, psychoacoustics and physical acoustics. With proof of concept established in the professional world, ranging from movies theatres and concert halls to museums and stadiums, the technology was adapted to meet the demands of the consumer electronics industry. Sonic Emotion’s sound technology gives consumers the opportunity to listen to movies, music and video games in Absolute 3D from anywhere in a room, with no calibration, extra cabling, equipment or speakers.
“We are delighted to release the new iLunar, which was jointly developed with Sonic Emotion,” said Mr. Nobuaki Okuda, CTO of Onkyo Corporation. “Over the last few years, we’ve been working on creating some exciting new Listening Style Audio systems, and we are gratified by the favorable response in markets around the world. We believe we can continue to provide a dynamic listening experience to customers with our iLunar, which features Sonic Emotion’s Absolute 3D sound technology.”
