Before Infinity Speaker founder Arnie Nudell’s unfortunate passing, he and I were working on a new concept in loudspeakers, one based on the idea that it just might be possible to get closer to live orchestral sound levels than we have in the past.
A full orchestra can hit peak levels as high as 120dB where the conductor stands. Arnie and I had become convinced this was the one quality still missing in speakers. Not for their lack of loudness, but headroom. Might it be possible to achieve these peak extremes without distortion, coloration, mega-amplifiers and bankruptcy court?
That is our challenge. Before his passing, he had made some good progress in a prototype he referred to as the IRS Killer. And it was. It may yet be possible to complete the dream.
