Has anyone tried or heard the new Synergistic Research UEF Acoustic Dots or its Black Box. Any thoughts? Rich

They can't possibly work. There has to be at least a five year study done on these with volumes of test results written, not to mention a series of double blind listening tests conducted under optimum temperature and atmospheric conditions. :lol:

I "heard" the Black Box at AXPONA, they were demonstrating it in their room. I will say I heard a slight difference, could have been power of suggestion, but I heard it. I'm not buying one (or two) though, at $2k it's a little ridiculous, kind of like all of their products. They work, but the cost to me, is way out of line. Just my opinion and I know lots of people like their stuff. Good for them. The other thing is the Black Box is quite small, bass frequencies are quite large, how does it work? Something inside resonates, but it doesn't pass the smell (hearing?) test.

I have not heard any of these products, but I have a fairly good understanding of basic acoustic engineering and to me, these products do not make theoretical sense.

Interesting replies, even though Brf has not heard the components, and I infer that Ayre has not. Almost all of the reviews and show reports I've read lately comment quite favorably on the Black Box and Synergistic's Atmosphere, such that I had come to believe that the benefits of these and other (but not all) Synergistic products are now generally accepted. Indeed, a number of reviewers are using them in their personal systems. The Acoustic Dots are very new, and there is little published discussion of them.

Has anyone else used, or heard, the Black Box or Acoustic Dots. If so, what is your opinion of them. Thanks. Rich

If I could find a SR dealer with a full refund return policy I would give them a try. I am skeptical, but that hasn't stopped me from "trying" before.

It's quantum mechanics not acoustic engineering. A whole different ballgame. The wave length of a bass open E string is almost a football field long. Nothing is going to be able to deal with that. You have to read a lot, but it all makes sense to me. The HRT's work and so do the PHT's. I see no reason to think that you won't get good results from their other products if you have symptoms that they can fix. You can always get your money back.

I'm sure there are others on the Google machine. I know all of these are following the Synergistic Research return policy.

I seriously considered trying the Black Box, I just can't swing the $2K right now. Let us know if you try it or the dots.
