Synergistic Research FEQ or Atmosphere


Hi,

I am using 15 of the HFTs in my room. They work well and as advertised. I would be interested in feedback for the FEQ and Atmosphere mini unit. What does the FEQ/mini add in your system and did you keep it long term? Also how many of the HFTs are you using with the units.
Thanks

I had at one time about 30+ of the HFT's.
Then I bought some Stillpoints Aperture ll's and I realized that the HFT's provided a "fake" sound and I ended up selling them all.

I do however still have 2 of the FEQ's in my room.

Thanks for the info Ozzy. So why did you keep the FEQs? How do they impact the sound?
Have the original FEQ. Made a big difference in the bass quality. Been too long to express other high points.
tom2015,
Good question. I think they add a bit of depth dimension. I also have 3 Acoustic Revive 77,777, 888 units which I think work on the same principle.

I also have the FEQ and had a Atmosphere mini but traded up to the big Atmosphere XL4. The FEQ and Atmosphere when used together compliment each other in very positive ways and with the adjustability of the XL4, one can dial in the sound to ones preference from lush to sharp to vivid to 3D and spacious. I played with all the settings and finally settled on one and just keep it there

I do have some HFT's but not many. Just a few in strategic spots works wonders. I think the UEF Acoustic Dots are more effective though.
I use the original Atmosphere and a FEQ X4 in my system. They are Schumann Resonance generators that use different lengths of antennas. They are much different from the Acoustic Revive units or the Acoustic Revive cheap knock-offs you can get off E-Bay. I would avoid those unless you can’t afford anything else. The Atmosphere is obviously longer (its taller) and the x4 means there is an antenna on all four sides. If you are buying new, and can afford it, the Atmosphere XL4 is the one to get. And use the SR app because it varies the Schumann Resonance frequency to give different sound.

I also use HFTs. Placement is critical. I would follow SR’s diagram and then tune by ear. I agree with you that they work as advertised but you can’t place them willy nilly they need to be in the exact same locations on each speaker and on each side of your room. SR says you can place the Atmosphere/FEQ any where in room but again in the center between the speakers sounds best to me so there is equal coverage of your room and speakers.
Excellent feedback thank you

Excellent! Thanks!
