Sound quality improvement by noise control in your network equipment
The Acoustic Revive LAN terminator RLT-1 is based on the X-terminator which has been developed by Mr. Takashi Kanai (The Sound subjectivity engineer of SONY) and was completed by adding our vibration suppression technology. The RLT-1 improves sound quality by noise control and the suppression of vibrations caused by network equipment.
Vacant LAN ports are the source of noise pollution
In addition to the significant noise being introduced by network equipment and their power supplies, large amounts aof additional noise is introduced via the vacant LAN ports which dramatically increases the problem. By using the Acoustic Revive RLT-1 with a vacant LAN port, its operation is stopped. Therefore, all unwanted noise pollution and the amplification of this noise is also eliminated. This results in an improvement in sound quality by reducing distortion and increasing the signal to noise ratio.
Improvement in sound quality via vibration control
As network equipment housings are less robust than most audio equipment, they are affected even more by vibrations from loudspeakers, resulting in serious damage of sound quality. RLT-1 is made from of a solid and hard case of 2017S aircraft grade aluminum alloy (duralumin) and has built-in natural quartz resonators at two places in the body to enable very effective vibration control. By using the RLT-1 with network equipment, its un-sturdy housing is reinforced and it results in the improvement of sound quality by eliminating the blurred sound image and improving energy and density, etc.
The sound improvement of download sound source as well
The RLT-1 is also effective for downloads sound sources. One of the merits of network audio is that we can try listening to the download sound source however, the noise on the network is significantly degrading the quality of the sound source. It is today very common in music production that sound quality is clearly degraded by the noise on a network path. When comparing a downloaded sound source cleaned by Acoustic Revive RLT-1 and the same without any anti-noise measures, the difference is so obvious that it almost seems that we are listening to a different performer or a different passage of music. When listening to music via P/C or network audio sources, anti noise measures are indispensable. We can say that PC/Network audio sources without “anti-noise” measures are not really producing true information.
