Meyer Sound’s Bluehorn Loudspeaker is Available Now

Meyer Sound has announced availability of the Bluehorn System, a technology breakthrough that for the first time achieves flat amplitude and phase response from 25 Hz to 20 kHz in a large-format loudspeaker. Bluehorn is the result of more than six years of intensive research, applies advanced proprietary algorithms to cancel out the non-linearities inherent in all mechanical transducers and loudspeaker cabinets, resulting in breathtakingly transparent aural neutrality.

Complete Bluehorn Systems are available in either stereo or LCR configurations, with each channel comprising a two-way mid-high loudspeaker, a separate low frequency element, and dedicated digital processing.

High-Resolution Monitoring, Upgraded HF Driver & Low-Frequency Cabinet

Bluehorn is designed for high-resolution monitoring applications in mid-sized rooms for music recording, cinema post-production, music mastering or other applications requiring the highest accuracy in sound reproduction. Externally, Bluehorn shares the same cabinet footprint, driver dimensions and waveguide configuration as Meyer Sound’s Acheron Designer loudspeaker. On the inside, however, Bluehorn utilizes an upgraded HF driver and new amplifiers with ultra-low noise and distortion.

Absolutely unique to Bluehorn is the dedicated processor that sits in front of both the mid-high loudspeaker and the companion low-frequency cabinet. The system-specific correction algorithms hosted by the processor were developed by meticulously analyzing all physical and electrical non-linearities throughout the entire system, from 25 Hz to 20 kHz, in order to bring acoustic output — at any level — into absolute phase and frequency alignment with the input signal. Essentially, the processing nullifies the non-linearities of drivers and enclosures, resulting in a phase-coherent response previously achieved only by open-air electrostatic headphones with their extremely low mass diaphragms.


Expert Comment

Among cinema professionals John Powell is the first one to take the delivery of a Bluehorn System. He installed an LCR Bluehorn System in his private recording and mixing facility (dubbed “5 Cat Studio”) in Pacific Palisades, California.

“We initially brought the Bluehorns in on a temporary basis for a specific project, but we wouldn’t let them leave the building,” says Powell. “For the work that I do, I need monitor loudspeakers that do not flatter the music at all. I need to hear exactly what is going on in an unbiased way. I have no time when working to enjoy what we did right; I need to hear when things are wrong so we can fix them, and I can hear those problems better with the Bluehorns.”
