The Emergence AS8 audio system is the greatest revolution in speaker technology since the cone.
The acoustics of your listening space no longer dictate the sound you hear.
Whether you're listening in your living room, recording studio, tile bathroom, glass penthouse, or outside, the speakers will perform beautifully, providing perfect stereo imaging in the entire listening space while removing the sound reflections.
+ Get in on early bird pricing - Retail price per system will be $695, but if you pledge through Kickstarter you have the opportunity for LIMITED AVAILABILITY SYSTEMS at significantly lower than retail price.
---Two satellite speakers with fractal dispersion lenses that create the holographic imaging, and a central amplifier/bass unit to balance the sound stage
--- The inbuilt Class D amplifier: 120 watts of power with a THD of better than 2 ppm, while very power efficient and cool-running.
---A3D proprietary software built into the amplifier
---The infra-red remote control allows source selection, volume control and muting (battery included)
---Accessories include Bluetooth 4.0 device, 2 cotton braided speaker cables, 1 USB cable, 1 optical cable, 1 phono 1/8th inch cable, RCA to 1/8th inch Y cable, power supplies appropriate for your region for bass and Bluetooth unit
---Optional audiophile upgrade kit includes Bluetooth 5.0 device and 16 isolation pads for speaker and subwoofer feet

We need to raise $85,000 to bring 750 units out of production and over to the U.S. where they will undergo final assembly and distribution.
+ High quality for affordable price Emergence AS8
+ Easy to set up
+ Small footprint
+ Sleek design, winner of the Australian Good Design award
--- Acoustic contouring, a sculptural showpiece designed to deliver a visual as well as an acoustic experience
--- Fractal Dispersive Lens, converts the conventional acoustics of the 50mm (2 inch) driver into the full 3D acoustics of A3D
--- Baffle, removes sensitivity to the placement surface by ensuring constant power into the Fractal Dispersive Lens
--- Die Cast aluminum feet, uncouples mechanical excitation forces from the placement surface
+ Connectivity: Featuring analog (RCA and 3.5mm phono) and coaxial, optical and USB digital inputs, the system can accept signals from pretty much every source, including WiFi/Airplay and Bluetooth interfaces. Optical Mini-jack, USB, RCA connect with (included) Bluetooth device to connect to any Bluetooth enabled device such as your smartphone or computer.
+ Pro Audio applications: AS8’s deliver unrivalled accuracy for mixes that translate consistently, with exceptional transparency facilitating nuanced control of EQ and effects.
Immerse yourself fully in the holographic audio experience, for home audio, movies, music, and video games; professional use for near-field tracking and as mixing studio monitor; for high-end stereo and surround sound playback; as a mastering studio reference monitor. Point Source behavior is theoretical ‘best practice’ for all of these applications.
The Emergence AS8 speakers deliver unrivaled accuracy for mixes that translate consistently, with exceptional transparency facilitating nuanced control of EQ and effects.
+ Energy efficient - amazing audio quality and volume at only 30 watts
+ Easy control onboard the subwoofer as well as on the included wireless remote
Sound bounces off hard surfaces creating reflections from your listening space. When you're watching a movie and that sound bounces around your living room, you are hearing reverb, reflections, and echoes that weren't intended to be heard when the audio was being mixed. Now imagine if you could eliminate those added noises without buying or building costly (and unsightly) acoustic treatments. That's what our speakers do, they eliminate the sound reflections from the room by diffusing the sound directly at the source, using patented A3D technology. That diffused audio sounds the same in every listening environment, creating the most immersive experience possible for movie and music entertainment and production. The walls from your listening space vanish and you hear well beyond them, as if you were really there in your favorite movie, music, or game entertainment.
By diffusing sound at the speakers as opposed to on the walls, floor, and ceiling of the room, we open up the signal to be completely phase linear, which means you hear audio in perfect stereo from everywhere within the listening environment. Typically, speaker setups have a very narrow sweet-spot. With the Emergence AS8 system, the entire room becomes the sweet spot!
We are very excited to introduce this technology to market. We've spent many years researching, developing, and fine tuning the systems and we're finally ready to unleash the audio revolution to the world, with a little help from you, our backers.
“Indeed very interesting concept with the potential of creating a new and exciting standard for speaker enclosures. The interaction of the speaker to the few environments that we placed the speaker in, created a particularly diffuse and pleasant audio response.”
-John Storyk - Architectural Acoustic designer, www.wsdg.com
"It's so crisp, and you really feel the space...the space between the instruments. Voices just sound great in them. The harmonics....everything's so clean. The clarity is just so remarkable."
~ Zachary Alford, Professional Drummer with credits including David Bowie, The B-52s, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Susanna Hoffs, Manic Street Preachers, David Torn and Patti Scialfa.
"The AS8 speaker system has been a great addition to our multi-use post production suite at Good Company! The system currently resides in a room that is 50% brick and windows, and they sound absolutely great in the environment. It’s allowed us to forgo hanging any acoustical treatment, instead saving that space for artwork and other items more pleasing to the eye:) In addition to the great sound, the ease of use switching between work stations (via bluetooth) to monitor playback during supervised sessions, has been a bonus to our workflow."
~ Ralph Miccio, Head of Post Production at Good Company, NYC www.goodco.tv
This is the first of many products planned using the ideal point-source technology (IPS). We plan to see the IPS technology implemented across every loudspeaker on the market, and it all starts with your contribution.
Risks and challenges
We've already sorted out all the designs, prototypes, and manufacturing processes. We've thoroughly tested the prototypes in some of the world's top anechoic chambers and measured ideal point source. This technology is ready to roll out on a mass scale, but we need help.
This product has even won the Australian Good Design Award! Our only challenge is to raise enough money to finish our first production run of 750 units, and bring them to the United States for distributionLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
