Meeting Report: June 2022 – DaS AuReality demonstration

On Monday 20th June the AES Melbourne Section finally returned to our old meeting haunt of the SAE Institute lecture theatre, where we welcomed Vastigo’s Joe Hayes to demonstrate his DaS (Diffusion at Source) AuReality loudspeakers.

In October last year, Joe introduced us to his concept of the DaS loudspeaker algorithm which provides a listening experience unshackled from the room’s acoustics and free of sweet-spot limitations. A full report on that presentation can be found at https://www.aesmelbourne.org.au/mtg-rpt-oct2021/

This time around, Joe gave us the opportunity to hear the results of his work.

Dedicated amplifier/loudspeaker combinations in active boxes can have sophisticated protection programming.
How effective can this be?
How should the standards for loudspeaker testing and power ratings tackle this?
