Bluebird Music to Distribute Sonoma Acoustics
Tue, 01 Aug 2017
Buffalo, NY -- Bluebird Music is pleased to announce that is has been appointed exclusive North American distributor for Sonoma Acoustics.
The Sonoma Acoustics Model One is a revolutionary new electrostatic headphone system specifically developed and optimized to reproduce today's high quality high-resolution recordings with stunning clarity and unprecedented sound quality.
The Model One features state-of-the-art technology, a superior optimized system design, outstanding comfort and wearability and excellent value for money.
The Sonoma Model One is the world's first headphone to use a High-Precision Electrostatic Laminate Transducer. This patented electrostatic technology has produced a driver that is lighter, more consistent and more durable that any previous electrostatic, resulting in very high resolution and breathtaking transparency.
Sonoma processes all signals using powerful custom 64-bit precision arithmetic. By using 64-bit technology Sonoma is able to achieve a very accurate frequency response with essentially no noise or loss of fidelity, extended dynamic range, perfect left/right matching, and have almost no distortion throughout the entire range of listening volume.
The Model One starts with the finest Cabretta sheepskin leather, known for its light weight, durability and softness then adds light-weight magnesium ear-cups, rather than the usual aluminum. The light-weight magnesium enhances comfort while also providing a better seal for improved bass performance and better RFI/EMI shielding for a cleaner sound.
In addition to its patented electrostatic drivers, the Model One features: reference-class dual DAC technology, a high-performance, wide-bandwidth, low distortion Class A amplifier, 64-bit custom DSP and even custom cables co-developed with Straight Wire. Each of these components was specifically designed to achieve optimal system synergy and deliver the best headphones listening experience on the market.
The Model One comes complete with headphones, amp/dac and all connecting cables and retails for $4,995 US or $6,495 Canadian.
Sonoma products will be sold exclusively through a limited network of highly skilled authorized bricks and mortar retailers. Bluebird Music is looking for value added retailers experienced with headphone / mobile audio products.
