The new AVAA C214 active bass trap accompanies its proven sibling, the C20. The "Active Velocity Acoustic Absorber" (AVAA) technology is said to eliminate room modes from 15 Hz to 160 Hz without the need for calibration or tuning. As a result, much cleaner bass response is promised for sophisticated listening environments such as professional studios or audiophile listening.
While the C20 uses purely analog technology, C214 employs digital technology and uses smaller diaphragms for an even more compact design. Thanks to the integration of digital technology, the AVAA C214 can be controlled via an app for smartphone or tablet, which is said to further improve sonic performance.
In addition, installation is said to be possible in almost any location in a room: on the floor, on the wall or on the ceiling. PSI Audio promises a tighter bass with higher impulse fidelity even in smaller rooms thanks to that. The PSI Audio AVAA C214 is stated to become available in mid-May in Germany, with a price not yet being announced.
