— Comhear, Inc.
a San Diego-based technology company, announced the introduction of YARRA 3DX
™ at the LA Audio Show—the audio industry's first affordable beam forming speaker array designed to place you inside any audio experience, from gaming, music playback, VR/AR, conferencing, and home entertainment. YARRA 3DX reproduces 360-degree, surround sound without the need for headphones. The company will be exhibiting at LA Audio Show and attendees will be able to get a first-hand listen to this innovative technology.
Developed in conjunction with researchers at University of California San Diego (UCSD), YARRA 3DX is a groundbreaking beamforming speaker that features hi-res audio, custom HRTFs, multiple users, and wireless control. The 360° spatial 3D audio system used in YARRA 3DX was most recently demonstrated at the recent AXPONA in Chicago to rave reviews. The Absolute Sound magazine's Steven Stone wrote that the system was one of the, "…most impressive demonstrations at AXPONA." And Grammy winning engineer and producer (Stevie Wonder, Devo) Robert Margouleff said, "YARRA 3DX is an ideal replacement for headphones. I like it!"
YARRA 3DX produces high fidelity 3D-audio sound experiences for gaming, music, VR/AR, home theater and conferencing in a remarkably small form factor and at an affordable price. The “smart” sound bar replaces the need for multiple speakers by offering an all in one option for a fully immersive surround sound experience. YARRA 3DX can also model "sound fields" produced by systems costing 10 times more. “
YARRA 3DX sound bar operates more like a sound projector and does something that no other audio technology can match," said Comhear CEO Perry Teevens. “We are looking forward to bringing this industry-first beamforming speaker to the market and are confident our technology will drastically change the way people experience audio—be it through gaming, virtual reality, home entertainment and more.”
Offering best in class Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless, as well as traditional analog wired connectivity, elegant design and smart features, YARRA 3DX can be used individually or as part of a home entertainment network. The YARRA 3DX app will allow users to personalize spatial localization, control connectivity, change from near field to far field reproduction, and model a variety of audiophile grade speakers.
YARRA 3DX speaker system is fully developed and ready for manufacturing, with a crowdfunding campaign launching in June to bring this revolutionary product to consumers. For sign ups, additional information and video, visit www.yarra3dx.com
. YARRA 3DX™ beam forming speakers will be available in the fall of 2017.
At the LAAS show, YARRA 3DX will be demoed during show hours on the Mezzanine level, booth 193
on June 2-4.
