The active HiFi Equipment Platform THIXAR Silencer_iZ.


“Silencer_iZ is simply a full blown audio equipment per se. It´s been my firm belief that there are many cutting edge technologies .. Silencer_iZ is evidently one of them .. Silencer_iZ is by far the most effective defences against vibrations I have ever seen.”

Active damping in perfection

People who possess high-end audio systems are fastidious. They demand an absolutely authentic rendition of their music. The Silencer_iZ takes you one gigantic step closer to this goal.

The disturbing influence of vibration has its origins in buildings, in people moving through the room and also in airbourne sound input from the loudspeakers. All these sources of disturbance lead to a distortion of audiosignals. The Silencer_iZ’s active damping system suppresses these disturbances masterfully. LEDs alone hint at its inner activities: ultra-fast control engineering absorbs vibration amplitudes in the micron-area. In recent years, this technology has become an essential part in modern, nanotechnological applications. And now the Silencer_iZ is introducing it to the high-end audio world delivering spectacular results that are simply not available with any other technology.

The Silencer_iZ contains sensors and actuators that are joined as axes mechanically to eachother. Vibrations occuring on the upper plate are measured and processed in a fast, analog control loop. An amplifier controlling electrodynamic actuators creates correction forces that compensate for the incoming vibration. By using dynamic powers of correction, pulse excitations can be dampened much faster. This leads to short response- and settling times as well as highest vibration isolation!

The demand: absolute vibration isolation and best quality for the smallest dimensions. For the first time, this knowledge has been put to use specifically for the high-end audio market.
