Hello A16 owners...

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a new passion project that I have developed specifically for owners of the Smyth Realiser A16.

The website is https://3dsoundshop.com/ and was launched on 08/16/21

Some Details...

Universal PRIRs...

Through the website... 3Dsoundshop is offering custom "Universal" PRIRs to existing owners of the Smyth Realiser A16. These PRIRs have been produced in a sound-controlled recording studio with the enhancement of room correction and bass management software. These PRIRs are available for purchase and download via the website.

The listening rooms (Both 9.1.6 and 15.1.8) available for purchase are made up of the following speaker brands.

  • Dutch and Dutch - Delayed
  • Genelec
  • Bowers and Wilkins
  • Focal
  • Buchardt
  • JBL
  • KEF
  • Paradigm
  • Kali
  • Klipsch

** "Universal" PRIRs are for the A16 owner who does not have access to loudspeakers, space or time to take their own measurements, or access to a recording studio for "In-Person" PRIRs, etc.

In-Person PRIRs...

For those looking for the best possible sound experience from their A16... "In-person", recording studio PRIRs will also be made available (by appointment only) for purchase through the website. (The recording studio is conveniently located just 20 minutes from the Newark airport in New Jersey.)

* That being said... the speaker brands in the list above may not necessarily be the same speakers used for "In-person" PRIR measurements. These details are still being worked out.


For Certain...
  • "Universal" and "In-Person" Dolby Atmos PRIRs are available in at least 16 channels (9.1.6).
  • The studio size does allow for a complete Dolby Atmos experience... without compromising on any of the speaker location specs that Dolby requires.
  • The recording studio is perfect for near-field captures. The goal was to use a space just large enough to achieve a multi-channel, single listener experience... and just small enough (with the help of room correction) to eliminate the sound of the room.
  • If preferred... "In-Person" Dolby Atmos PRIRs can be done with (most) customer-owned (bookshelf sized) speakers.
  • "In-Person" PRIRs will only be done on weekends, and by appointment only.

Website Content...
  • Easy and intuitive navigation.
  • FAQ - Most commonly asked questions.
  • Listening Room Details: Speaker brands and models used as well as detailed speaker specifications.
  • Online Dolby Atmos Demos: Both 16 Channel (9.1.6) and 24 Channel (15.1.8) Dolby Atmos Demos.
  • Frequency Response Charts for each of the channels in the Listening Room.
  • Instant and Seamless Audio Demos - Instantly and seamlessly compare the sound signatures and characteristics of each of the available speaker brands.
  • Reviews - Real customer reviews about my products as well as their experiences and support.
  • Shop - All of my available products for the Smyth Realiser A16
  • Contact Us. The quickest way to get in touch with me.


Updates To Come...
It's going to be exciting!

Unfortunately, the room correction software used does not allow the end-user to see such data.

For everyone who owns a Realiser this looks like an answered prayer. The A16 is a remarkable tool for emulating quality speakers playing in a room, but until now there has been no practical way to capture these speakers for anyone buying an A16.

3D Sound Shop is offering two ways around that problem--universal Prirs and in person Prirs.

It looks to me like he's doing these measurements with a great deal of precision in a superior room (a studio), using some of the best speakers discussed on this site (Genelec 8351, D & D 8C, LS 50 Metas, Buchardt A500s).

I own a Realiser, and I've already done two sets of multichannel Prirs, a 16 channel for my LS 50s, and a 23 channel for my LS50 Metas. I can tell you, it's quite a project. Getting angles measured out and correct, setting up the head tracking, not stepping the cords--it's quite and undertaking, so anyone offering either pre done PRIRs and/or bespoke in person PRIRs will be adding a tremendous value to the process.

If you've got the hardware, looks like 3D Sound Shop has the software.
