Legacy Audio Valor

The advancements are the combined efforts of Legacy’s Chief Engineer, Bill Dudleston and Bernt Böhmer, of Böhmer Audio, Sweden. And while the sonic results may appear magical, they are the summation of Dudleston’s 34 years of experience in the field of sound field reconstruction and Böhmer’s highly touted mathematical algorithms. Together they have developed the Wavelet processor which tackles the problems of room resonances and digital harshness while the new Stereo Unfold technology reveals hidden layers of information by unmasking important spatial and harmonic cues otherwise lost in playback.

The Valor system as a whole is about acoustic steering and making sure that both lateral and vertical information on the recording appears appropriately in the time domain. In a two stage process the Room Correction algorithm cleans up the early unwanted reflections from your room’s floor, ceiling and walls, thereby allowing the Stereo Unfold algorithm to restore the vectors encoded in the L/R information. The result is a clearer sound with more depth front to back and a more open and spacious soundstage. Localization is more precise as each performer seems to have their own dimensional space. Timbre is richer as readily demonstrated by the sonorous reed and bell characteristics of the saxophone. With pumping of the hi-hat pedal you can almost feel the flow of the air accelerating outward. Brushes cleanly circle on the snare head and the floor tom has a resounding bounce. Harmonics of vocals and stringed instruments are so natural that stereo playback pales in comparison. Image placement is no less than remarkable.
