Przecież dźwięk między źródłem a uchem słuchacza napotyka na wiele elementów pomieszczenia. Pomieszczenie, nawet najdoskonalsze, również wymaga ulepszenia.

 I tu właśnie wkracza Halograph.

Jest efektem 10 lat badań nad efektami połączenia głosników z pomieszczeniem odsłuchowym. Nauczylismy się jak zredukować słyszalność przypadkowych odbić od ścian pomieszczenia odsłuchowego. Dzięki temu nie zagłuszają i nie zniekształcają dźwięku odbieranego bezpośrednio z głośników.
Hallograph podkreśla częstotliwości, amplitudę oraz czas współgrający w pierwszych odbiciach które słyszysz, dając w efekcie zadziwiającą poprawę realizmu.

Cena: $1000 za parę.

Na koniec kilka recenzji, w oryginalnym brzmieniu:

The Hallograph is an amazingly worthwhile and effective device. I’ve had it in my system for a couple of weeks of heavy listening and am hooked (no break-in required). In my system, the soundstage became deeper and wider, images gained in intensity and size, while high frequency extremes lost some stridence. Information retrieval (or should I say „unmasking”) goes up a notch, as details that were previously masked by room reactions reclaim their prominence in the mix. Vocals gain in intelligibility and clarity. Importantly, it appears to be very neutral, or evenhanded, if you will, in its impact across the spectrum — nothing pushed at you or rolled off to create an artificial sense of impact. Quite the opposite, in fact — the whole musical presentation seems to be naturally set in its recording venue to a greater degree.

The cumulative impact of all this is to peel off a previously unobserved thin layer of glaze from the music. It just has a fresher feel, closer to lifelike. If you’ve ever ridden a bicycle in a rural setting right after the rain, the air has a glorious, exhilarating dimension, scrubbed clean. Subjectively for me, that’s the best way to sum up what the Hallograph does.
Highly recommended.


I just received your Hollograph yesterday and got it set up. Wow ! I’m very impressed! The changes that can be made are surprising. When I read in the directions that you could hear a difference when only tuning the array 1/8″ I thought I probably wouldn’t be able to hear it . I then tried several changes and found myself laughing with amazement at the possibilities for customizing the sound. Very cool !! I don’t see how it can work, but it does, and it is very very cool ! How did you get the idea to try and develop something like this ? It seems to be such a different approach than anything else on the market.

Congrats, and I hope it all works out for you. If you have any other secrets let me know. I’m sure I would be interested !


My initial reaction upon hearing the Shakti Hallograph Sound Field Optimizer in my home has been nothing short of amazement in the enhancement of my system�s sound. Not only has the soundstage width and depth been enhanced, but the resolution within the soundstage is spectacular. The bass exhibits greater control with midrange and highs that are now more articulate and less strident.

Most importantly, I am now drawn into the music to a degree that I have never experienced before.


I received the Hallograph the first week of January, and found it very easy to set up. My wife’s visual reaction was „it’s not as bad as I thought it was going to be” and „though weird, works well with our contemporary d�cor.” The wood is well finished and the overall effect is more akin to a fun sculpture.

But this is really about sound reproduction, not aesthetics. The Hallograph does for my audio system what laser vision does for my sight. Smearing of tones, edginess of timbre, and wooly bass have now vanished to be replaced by a clarity of pitch and timbre, an improvement in micro and macro attack, bloom and decay, and a very natural, you are there sense to all types of music; chamber, symphonic, jazz, male or female vocals, massed chorus, and opera. I have been tweaking my system for years, and have made some very good improvements this past year. The Hallograph stands with the best of these improvements (components, cables, and the ubiquitous Shakti stones) and for the most part at a much smaller investment. They truly are adjustable with audible changes, and I have had some fun „tweaking the tweak.” In my room with my speakers, setting the Hallograph’s „vanes” dead center on left and right is for my ears the best overall presentation and balance. It is very hard to turn the system off at night. I find so much new enjoyment with my most familiar recordings (on CD, HDCD, SACD and vinyl).

The Hallograph Soundfield Optimizer is a mouth-full to say, looks strange in pictures, is hard to comprehend at first sight how or why is should even work, and does everything as advertised. Thanks again for making this hobby so much fun and for producing an audio product that is so effective.
