ABOUT US

Etalon Sound presents a technological breakthrough, based on the best and proven technologies and the latest innovations.

We produce everything you need to realize your dream of an ideal sound: dreamdac, trueamp amplifer, metropolitan and mariinsky acoustic systems. The quality of our equipment is guaranteed by the only possible objective method of the sound evaluation. 

Our philosophy says a low frequency amplifer should be only balanced. It involves an international conductor, who himself creates live music and is an impartial sound quality connoisseur. We believe, that only the one, who listens to live music day after day with all its fullness and sound variety, can judge the sound quality of this or that audio system. The orchestra conductor hears every instrument, every shade and nuance during the concert, and it is him, who is the most objective in assessing the sound reproduction. To get an unprecedented assessment, which can really be trusted, we invited not just an experienced and famous, but one of the most celebrated conductors of our time.

HERE WE COMMENT IN BRIEF

A normal (unbalanced) signal is transmitted by two conductors. One is a signal conductor, the other is a ground one. This signaling method is diferent by complementation simplicity, but it cannot withstand interferences.

Etalon Sound creates everything you need to realize your dream of a perfect sound: DreamDac, TrueAmp, Acoustic systems. 

The quality of our equipment is guaranteed by the only possible objective method of sound evaluation. It involves a World famous conductor, who creates Music and who is an impartial Sound connoisseur. 

We believe, that only the One, who listens to Live music daily with all its fullness and sonic variety, is able to make an objective assessment of the sound quality of any audio system. 

 

The orchestra conductor hears each instrument, each shade and nuance during a concert, and it is the One, who is the most objective in assessing the sound reproduction. To get an unprecedented assessment, which can really be trusted, we invited not just an experienced and famous, but one of the most celebrated conductors of our time.

OUR EXPERT

IS MAESTRO JADER
BIGANAMINI, THE ASSISTANT OF
RICCARDO CHAILLY:

“My work is to understand and to convey the composer’s intention. My pleasure is in the beauty of the orchestra sounding. I can reach it during the performance. But it is very hard to pass it to listeners outside the hall.

Aſter “Manon Lescaut” rehearsal at the Bolshoi Theater, I was asked to evaluate the opera recording. I really liked the naturalness of the sound and the sense of presence in the hall. I again felt myself behind the conductor’s panel at the Bolshoi Theater.

Thanks to Etalon Sound equipment I have the opportunity to visit any theater in the world. Now all the brightness of emotions from live music is available to you with the sound quality of Etalon Sound.”
