The Universal Stereomaster

SM3-150

The SM3-150 can be considered a materialized world record: there has never been a full-spec stereo system with a comparable ratio of performance and size. No less than 12 speaker drivers of the highest grade are hidden behind the machined metal facade of the 148 cm wide SM3-150. Capable of live concert dynamics, the SM3-150 delivers the grandeur of a symphonic orchestra with the same ease as the force of a heavy metal happening. If used for cinematic soundtrack replay, its wall-loaded, ultra controlled explosive dynamics leave the listener in complete awe. The SM3-150, when combined with a TV set, easily doubles as the world’s best soundbar. Despite its power and glory, the 150 is a finely tuned audiophile masterpiece with pronounced inherent musicality, conveying deep emotions. The typical statement of its proud owners is: ‚This is the last audio system I’ll ever need’.

„With the SM3, Lyravox shows that design and good sound can be combined beautifully. “

Philipp Schneckenburger, Einsnull Magazin

ACTIVE/DIGITAL MULTI-CHANNEL AMPLIFICATION

As one of the major technical advances in audio, the direct amplification of a speaker driver eliminates distortions, phase shifts and decoupling caused by traditional passive crossover networks. In combination with DSP processing, not only a more exact crossover is possible, but also perfect time and phase alignments, more refined equalisation, dynamics-dependent corrections, and room-dependent corrections.

INTEGRATED HD-STREAMER

In order to achieve the ideal of a lossless audio chain, Lyravox integrates a high resolution streamer into its systems. The direct integration avoids sonic bottlenecks, thus improving the overall sound quality. In addition, the streamer allows the playback of high resolution audio files (from servers, external storages, or from the internet) which represent today’s best sounding and most convenient music sources, especially when available in studio standard. The German made streamer is organically merged with the system’s DSP/driver engine on the output side and all of the system’s interfaces on the input side.

Illuminator Ring Radiator Tweeter

One of the secrets behind the SM3’s outstanding acoustic performance is the choice of Scan Speak’s Illuminator ring radiator as the system’s main tweeter. Since its introduction it has been a benchmark component regardless of price, combining superb technical specifications with a pronounced musical articulation. With its vacuum tube-like harmonic distortion spectrum it lends the SM3 the most ‚analogue‘ sound in the Lyravox product range, along with one of the best price-performance ratios in the audio industry.

ACTIVE DIFFUSE FIELD RECREATION

In a real-life music performance, the sonic waves of musical instruments are being dispersed in all directions, not only towards the listener. The dispersion of traditional loudspeakers with front drivers is therefore not fully representative of real music. Lyravox systems (except studio monitors) are equipped with additional drivers for the projection of the ‚ambient’ part of the music, partly through individual DSP-controlled channels.

180 DEGREE STEREO

Enjoying proper stereo from a traditional system requires sitting at the sweet spot of the infamous ‚stereo triangle’, making audiophile listening a lonesome hobby. The Lyravox Stereomaster range employs an acoustic projection that reverses the stereo triangle: with the main frontal tweeters of the system angled inside plus additional tweeters on each side, the listener always faces two tweeters, at any position within the room – enjoying stereo sound throughout the room.

WALL COUPLED ACOUSTIC PROJECTION

The wall mounting of a Stereomaster is not only beneficial for the aesthetics and space consumption within a living space, it also helps to achieve a well-defined sound projection. Most of all, a Stereomaster benefits from the fact that its positioning within the room is set, so that – unlike a traditional speaker – it can be optimised for it. Second, the wall offers a reflection plane for the side drivers of a Stereomaster, allowing a stereo image projection which is much wider than the unit itself. And finally, for a controlled and defined bass dispersion there is no better situation than having your back to a solid wall.

 OPTIMIZED CABINETRY

A large part of a loudspeaker’s quality is determined by its enclosure. All Lyravox systems are built to proven high end standards. This refers to the choice and combination of the cabinet materials, cabinet geometry, internal bracing, finely tuned damping, internal absorbers (for the minimization of electronic corrections), internal sound and pressure dispersion, midrange cabinet ventilation, reflex channel optimization, external diffraction and optimal wall or floor coupling.
