As far as we can gather, the interior is composed of corrugated fiberboard panels, compressed polyester foam panels, a well-hidden computer, two firewire audio interfaces, 15 main active loudspeakers and two subwoofers; all aimed at a delicious-looking tongue sofa. Oh, and if you’re having a hard time reading the given schematics, I don’t blame you. It took me a minute to realize that the picture below is showing ½ of the room. So if you’re still lost with the lettering system below, you could read it as 7 (pictured) – 15 (total) main active loudspeakers. I hope the design team didn’t create this diagram. (°_°) In further detail, the listening room also goes as far as giving its listeners the ability to switch on and off the experience of an audio event; in layman’s terms, the KT will mimic the sensation “that is in-between the notion of the concert hall and the iPod headphone,” although I’d much rather prefer the concert hall. These spatial settings are “expressed” via “key markers” such as non-daily experience, petit-event and habitable audio. So it goes without saying to all of you Tokyo audiophiles and design freaks, now’s your chance to have yourself “wrapped by the nucleus of [a] sound cell.”
And speaking of, if anyone is lucky enough to be “wrapped” by this listening room first hand, please leave a comment about your experience.
