Messe 16: DMSD decoupler

Italian company, designer works in the aviation engineering field.

the test setup were 2 pair of amphions, one set with, one set without.

I was very much blown away by the difference (so was David Bryce). The amphions sounded a lot better in the lowend, more alive, lesshifi.

there were measured results (with/without): they correct both phase and FTT (I remember 60Hz was 2 seconds without, 0.6secwith the dampers).

a set of 8 willgo for approx 580euro net.

they will send me a set for review.

Very expensive. Can you compare with isoacoustic?

Had a brief listen & they were faster / tighter than Iso acoustics stuff - more like China Cones.

They seem decent.

I can not. someone who has isoacoustic was impressed too (show floor noise level, just with and without the dampers). I guess like everything in proaudio you need to try it out yourself. I found the product to be very interesting because I finally started to like the speaker brand (Amphion).

I have witnessed today this product and I have to say I was amazed.
Never knew about it,just saw it around, also Unity Audio were using it under their monitors.

I was left speechless with the difference with and without. I never thought that such a thing would make such a difference.

It was turning something out of focus, out of phase (that was supposed to be correct) into really focused and really concentrated stereo image.
It was like turning a muddy recording from far, to super clear in your face, like it should be I guess.

I cannot say about frequency response as the place was quite noisy around, but I can imagine that it really works also on the frequency, as there were graphs there on paper showing the difference.

It was just magic, sorry you don't hear this word often nowadays, but it just happened.

Yes, I thought they sounded good.

Why are they so expensive?? Are they using some uber rare material to manufacture these?

very stiff aviation "grade" material. for specific questions you have to ask the designer directly.

Worth the price

I heard it in Messe as well, they are amazing like black magic.

I got my kit yesterday and installed in my studio as soon they arrived, the speaker became clearer and low end turn into more tight image, they are amazing.

I think 500€ is not big buck for a better speaker without spending more money in a new pair of monitors, what you get for your dough is a clearer stereo image and improved low end it is like you have a two elements speaker with a 6" cone and upgrade to a three elements speaker with 8" cone.

It worth the price for sure.

I have installed them in my studio where I use Quested S8Rs on Zaor monitorstands. The effect is comparable to switching to a superior digital clock: Better separation, improved stereo image, clearer mids, tighter bass. A quite dramatic effect and definitively worth the money.

I had the feeling to listen for the first time to the true sound of the speakers.

Highly recommended!

anyone else comment on these? Would they help much with a cement floor?

According to this, apparently it does. (Skip to 3:00)



The claim that the Earth's vibes affect a speaker's performance might be quite a stretch made for a marketing boost though. Any seismologists in the house?
