I love the results of the 972, and I am interested in a step-up at some point, but I also hate when Marketing tries to co-op math or engineering terms they don't understand...
I suggest that you or anyone really interested in understanding the technology behind Trinnov Remapping take a few minutes to read our research pages found here
While "Bessel/Fourier Transform" may be introduced in advanced college math, harnessing the transform for audio, as done in the Trinnov family of products, was no simple task, involving scientific grants and years of research to make it practical for consumer use. As the manager at Trinnov for transfering this remarkable technology to Sherwood, I can attest to many many hours consumed to have Sherwood adapt to this new and complex way of processing audio. It's one of the high barriers to entry to having more moderately priced Trinnov successors to the R972, which many of us would love to see happen.
The" Bessel/Fourier Transform" work is indeed a milestone in consumer audio and we look forward to having it more accessable in the audio marketplace. We at Trinnov consider R972 users early adaptors of the technology, willing to deal with the side quirks because of the real benifits Trinnov brings. In part, it will be your interest and on going support that will lead to the development of new products. For that, we thank you.
