Starke Sound is participating as marquee sponsor for immersive audio at the 2017 LA Audio Show, June 2-4 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Los Angeles. Taking over 2,500 square feet, Starke Sound will transform the Gateway Ballroom into a purpose-built demonstration area, including two full Dolby Atmos theaters along with a waiting area featuring a two-channel listening station and a static display of Starke Sound’s full line of products.
To complete the component selection for the theaters, Starke Sound worked closely with its premier dealer, High End Zone, which coordinated with its sponsor partners including Trinnov processors, JVC projectors, Screen Excellence screens, and a Kaleidescape media player.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to make a strong impact in our home market with dual Dolby Atmos demonstrations,” said Scott DeLoache, chief design director for Starke Sound. “Show attendees will have a rare opportunity to enjoy a 3D immersive cinema entertainment experience as well as a real-world home theater example of what’s possible with Starke Sound products available today. We appreciate the support of our partners to help make our vision a reality for this tech tour de force presentation.”
Starke Sound loudspeakers are designed for a wide dynamic range with the ability to deliver high detail and deep-reaching bass. All Starke Sound models utilize a patented Linear Magnetic Field Driver technology specifically designed to increase range while minimizing distortion. In addition, beryllium tweeters handle high frequencies with the highest detail. Lastly, carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) cones provide strength and rigidity, which minimize structural deflections and maintain the subtle acoustic variations.
The Large Cinema Room will boast a 52-seat theater showcasing a 13.6.8 Dolby Atmos configuration, with the system valued at $250,000 driven by Starke Sound’s Halo Series: IC-H5 Elite floor standing, IW-H5 Elite wall mounted, IW-H3 Beryllium Tweeter ceiling mounted, along with SUB36 subwoofers and new A7 Mark II amplifiers.
The Home Theater Room will feature a more intimate setting, with a 13-seat home theater in a 9.4.4 Dolby Atmos configuration with the system price of $145,000, including the same models, in less quantity as the Large Cinema Room.
