ClairAudient 2+2

The Audience system will feature the ClairAudient 2+2 and LSA 8+8
, two unique bi-pole (front- and rear-radiating) speakers that incorporate the company's exclusive full-range, crossoverless Audience A3-S drivers to deliver an unprecedented combination of ultra high resolution and dynamics, tonal accuracy and precise imaging on an expansive soundstage. The new ClairAudient 2+2 measures just 14.5 inches high by 7.875 inches wide by 10.25 inches deep, yet delivers surprisingly powerful and enveloping sound. The ClairAudient LSA 8+8 (56 inches by 15 inches by 12 inches) is ideal for larger installations and rooms, and conveys music with exceptional authority and scale. Both models are available in a choice of exotic real-wood finishes.

Audience will also showcase the company's upgraded AdeptResponse aR6-TS and aR12-TS power conditioners, which now incorporate Audience Aura-TO Teflon capacitors with mono crystal wire leads, along with other refinements, to deliver significantly improved sound and picture quality from high-performance audio and video systems in which they are installed.

ClairAudient 8+8Rounding out the system will be the Wavemaster buffered autoformer preamplifier, prototype Wavepower Class D monoblock power amplifiers, Au24e cables, Au24 powerChords, a powered subwoofer, an Audience-modified Oppo BDP 83SE Blu-ray Disc Player with SACD and DVD-Audio, and other components.

These products incorporate numerous exclusive Audience innovations such as the A3-S driver that eliminates the need for crossovers and the compromises of conventional woofer/midrange/tweeter/crossover complexities. Audience loudspeakers are based on unique SSIT SweetSpace Imaging Technology that provides an expanded listening area. Proprietary amplifier circuit designs and even the company's custom-made Auricap and Aura-TO capacitors and Auric hookup wire are used, resulting in components that convey music with extraordinary realism, impact, subtlety and the emotional involvement of a real-life performance.

Audience audio components and loudspeakers are designed, engineered and handcrafted in the United States. Their products have earned worldwide acclaim from reviewers, customers and dealers. After hearing an Audience system at T.H.E. Show in January 2010, Harry Pearson of The Absolute Sound commented, "I thought the sound I heard there as magically 'right' as any I have heard at any show. I forgot to listen to the sound and listened to the music. A joy." ("HP's Workshop," The Absolute Sound, April/May 2010)
