Many so-called ‘full-range’ loudspeakers cannot reproduce the low bass frequencies found on most music and movie discs, these frequencies are necessary for the accurate reproduction of the original recording to impart the natural ambience of a real life recording. When present, it is immediately recognisable by listeners as being closer to ‘the actual performance’. Of course, movie DVDs incorporate a dedicated bass channel for bass special effects, these being just as described, “special effects” to be precise LFE (Low Frequency Effects). LFE should not be confused with the bass frequencies present in a normal full range sound signal being presented to the main full range speakers. A properly designed sub-bass system will not only reproduce these bass frequencies with accuracy, it will also augment the output of conventional stereo music with very low-frequency bass that is felt rather than heard. The result is greater audiophile fidelity in the lower and mid-band range. A system with a wider bandwidth will always sound more realistic and ultimately more entertaining, stimulating and engaging.
The only way to add these critical bass frequencies is to introduce a correctly designed sub-bass system, one which not only has the technical ability to reveal the deepest sounds, but will also integrate seamlessly with the loudspeakers so that your system speaks with one deeper, more natural voice.
MJ Acoustics designs and builds specialised sub-bass systems that do just this. For nearly 20 years, the evolving range of MJ products have delighted audiophiles and cinephiles around the world and received outstanding critical acclaim. Its superiority in providing real life, sound-for-pound value continues unchallenged, proving that genuine sub-bass is a rare commodity, and only available from a specialist.
The Reference 150 has a feature list that covers all the essential ingredients required to integrate and MJ into any audio system. The on-board microprocessor provides for extensive management of this feature set. Reference 150 and is simple to use via its digital display confirming all your settings. Due to its small 300mm square cabinet size, Reference 150 can be tucked away into the smallest of areas. 250mm Ultra Long-Throw sub bass driver, digitally accurate crossovers, multiple inputs, high-level cable, M8 spikes, Reference 150 is amazingly well equipped and ready for the most demanding movies and the most detailed bass lines.
If that’s not enough, it even comes with a totally out-of-sight remote control and a remote eye receiver to make recalling one of the 4 user-presets an absolute joy.
