Artnovion Unveils New Aries Studio Diffusers

Artnovion Aries R1

Portugese acoustic treatment specialist Artnovion (distributed in the UK by Audio-Technica) has announced the launch of its Aries series of diffuser products created specifically for professional audio applications.

The Aries Diffuser was designed using a variety of diffusion techniques and offers a clear advance in performance over traditional QRD design. Inspired by traditional numeric sequence diffusers, it is composed of asymmetrical multi-depth wells, in which specific wells use a folded-depth technique to boost the mid-low diffusion range of the panel.

While the panel itself is only 60mm thick, the extended wells on the diffuser are designed to be effective at 160Hz and 400Hz, with a linear diffusion pattern from 700Hz upwards, delivering previously unheard-of diffusion capacity for its size.

The asymmetric wells are also arranged in an optimised sequence to prevent lobbing when used in larger arrays. This design feature - in combination with the extended low-range diffusion – ensures that Aries goes lower and outperforms any other diffuser in its class.
