Many years ago one of our good customers had this to say about the Hallographs he had purchased.
They are no longer made, but if you have a chance to get hold of a pair, take it. You may find yourself as knocked out by the sound as Dan was.
Man, you weren’t kidding. Hallographs, utilizing a process as comprehensible to me as voodoo magic, have got to be the most AMAZING sonic upgrade ever. Hallographs allow my stereo to induce not just pleasure, but euphoria. That’s not hyperbole.
I don’t know how these tall sticks of wood, albeit expertly crafted, do whatever it is they do, but the sound emanating from my speakers reached a whole new league of sonic reproduction.
Edginess to the highs? Gone.
Bass bloat? Gone.
High volume distortion? Gone.
Meanwhile, it adds rich tones, warmth, detail, clarity, dynamics, life-like three-dimensional sound, and a wonderful ease and naturalness to the overall sound. To top it off, I’ve been able to calibrate focus and immediacy vs. soundstaging and depth. Did I mention it adds a beautifully rich tone?
That I could achieve such wonderful sound with Hallographs in my mid-sized room should be an encouragement to any of your customers who, like me, are still working their way up to a large listening room. I was worried that I might not get much out of the Hallos in the absence of a full range of placement options, and nothing could be further from the truth.
Despite the tens of thousands of dollars of stereo equipment I’ve purchased, nothing I’ve done has ever offered a more DEEPLY SATISFYING audio improvement than Hallographs. When can I get a second pair?
Thanks so much for your letter. We are as enthusiastic about the Hallos ability to improve the sound of the stereo as anyone, as can be seen from the photo below. Three Hallos can be seen in the picture surrounding one old man, but we actually use a total of six of them, with two in the back corners of the room.
Discovering these room treatments right around 2004 completely changed audio for me. I’m glad you had the same experience. Unfortunately, they never caught on the way they should have,so finding them in the secondary market is difficult, but some of our customers have managed to do it.
