THE WORLD'S FINEST WIRELESS AUDIO SYSTEM - ARCHT ONE

The World's Finest Wireless Audio System
The World's Finest Wireless Audio System

ARCHT One is an audio system born from the dream of delivering a simplistic, elegant, yet powerful audio solution. 

Before the ARCHT One, listeners in search of the optimal home audio experience were limited to the location where speakers were placed, often leading them to be tethered to very specific spots in a room. In many cases, the result is a rigid, inconsistent audio experience. Today, we see consumers demanding more from their music as freedom of movement and design have become increasingly important.

We built the ARCHT One from ground up to address that. After years of development by our team of award winning team of engineers and designers, we have engineered and patented our Sound Array technology to create a first of its kind omnidirectional, audiophile quality speaker.

With ARCHT One, we aim to transform audio into something that listeners can seamlessly integrate into their lifestyle and home without compromising quality. Incorporating elegant design with innovative acoustics and simple-to-use features, ARCHT One is the ultimate wireless speaker that listeners control at their fingertips. 

MODERN LIFESTYLE DESIGN: Fits Any Space

A Design Piece Like No Other
A Design Piece Like No Other

In the past, speaker designs have been characterized as large, boxy objects framing a home’s entertainment system and mounted to specific corners of a room. Connected through a twist of wires and controlled with a remote often misplaced or buried between couch cushions, home audio systems of the past proved cumbersome and crude to the eye.

ARCHT One disrupts all that. ARCHT One comes fully equipped with full range drivers, a sub-woofer, a passive radiator, amplifier, digital signal processor (DSP) and a digital analog (DAC) converter, eliminating wire clutter. All this is efficiently assembled into a sleek package guaranteed to turn heads.

Acoustic Perfection

ARCHT One is also designed to sound acoustically perfect, regardless of where you put it in the room. ARCHT One’s stunning design architecture incorporates years of acoustic research resulting in the creation of our groundbreaking Sound Array technology. 

ARCHT One represents a symbiotic relationship between function and design that will transform homes into elegant concert halls with the music quality to match.

PATENTED ACOUSTIC INNOVATION: Consistent Multi-Directional Sound Dispersion that Adapts to its Environment

Patented Sound Array

Many speakers claim to provide true surround sound in a single device. However, speakers are directional by nature and they sound best when listening from a specific point. Adding multiple speakers does not change this reality and can cause distortion and inconsistent audio quality.

Consistent Distortion Free Sound

ARCHT One is a true omni-directional speaker with a built in sub-woofer

ARCHT One solves this problem with its patented Sound Array technology: the only one of its kind. It only uses 3 speakers – a full range driver for the mids and highs, a sub-woofer and passive radiator for the bass. Each of these speakers are equipped with a Sound Array module, which transforms the speakers from directional to omnidirectional. The result is consistent, distortion free audio which redefines the meaning of surround sound - it’s truly amazing.

ARCHT One adapts to its surroundings

A first of its kind, dynamic audio optimization allows ARCHT One to adapt to its surroundings. Our custom ARCHT Audio application gives smartphone users the power to optimize the ARCHT One’s sound based upon the space in which it is being used. With the app, ARCHT One will always be tuned to your environment, ensuring you get the best audio experience wherever you are.

LAUNCHING THE ARCHT ONE - We Need Your Help

Our dream began in 2011 when a car audio veteran from Singapore invented the Sound Array, with the vision of transforming how speakers are 'seen' and 'heard'. He started out with high end systems but soon realized that while bigger may be better; the ultimate speaker is not all about raw power, but about the overall user experience. From the first purchase, opening the box, speaker set up and daily use - enjoying high end audio should not be a complicated process. 

Evolution of the ARCHT One

He teamed up with an acoustic expert and industry veteran in the US, with the aim of developing a speaker that would look fantastic, sound awesome and be extremely easy for anyone to setup and use.

We displayed hand-crafted prototypes at CES 2014 earlier this year to test this hypothesis. At CES, the team received great feedback from technology and design communities. After the event, we knew we were on to something.

Risks and challenges

As we move into the production phase, most development risks have been addressed. The finish and audio quality achieved is second to none and we are now focusing on tweaks to further enhance the user experience. With those improvements being worked on during the Kickstarter campaign, we are confident that production can begin immediately after a successful campaign draws to a close.

We are working with experienced and reputable manufacturers; delays are sometimes inevitable when creating a unique product It is with this knowledge in mind that we set a very realistic delivery schedule. The factory can build up to 100 units a day. If possible, we would like to deliver product before the estimated shipping date. That will be challenge that we hope to meet.

Kickstarter pledges will be critical to launching us into that next phase of production. It will not only allow us to begin the production run for the first batch of ARCHT One units, but also allow us to set up quality controls and supply chain logistics, ensuring the company builds on a strong foundation.

After the Kickstarter campaign, our next goal will be to launch ARCHT One in retail stores.
