Thomas, I'm fascinated w these, and also the Harmonix discs and Shun Mook Mpingo Spatial Kits.

I'm getting the impression from the review the SRs are an alternative to bigger panel type room treatments.

I still struggle to reconcile this, esp wrt size.

I appreciate your valuable opinion on it.

Based upon 30 day's return, I may pull the trigger.

The problem is that I rarely return the items that I bought. ;)

Hi I am going through the above review.
But it will be nice if I can get more opinion from other users.

I bought one 2 years ago, just before AudioBacon published their review.

At that time my audiophile friends and I borrowed one from the HK SR dealer and we tested it during our regular gathering.

All of us were convinced of its effect and bought it afterward.

The effect we experienced was similar to the description on the Audiobacon review

That's my only acoustic treatment gadgets.
It's inconspicuous so I was granted a permit by my boss at home.

Great that someone has posted something on this topic.

I was just surfing the Gon and spotted this "thing" below and didn't know quite what to make of it.

Synergistic Research Atmosphere Infinity - transcends the boundaries of your listening room
https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lis9hh4i-synergistic-research-atmosphere-infinity-tweaks

weird.jpg
Imagine listening to Charlie Parker at Birdland, then walk into Carnegie Hall and get seated in the best seats in the house. This is possible when you add Atmosphere to your listening room. No other technology allows you to tailor the size and scale of your soundstage, with stunning realism, to accurately portray the music and venue you are experiencing. The Atmosphere is a two-channel, multi-wave RF field generator with the power to transport you to the live event. Simply place Atmosphere it is your room, turn it on, and tune out.

The Atmosphere transcends the boundaries of your current system allowing you to shape your soundstage while controlling low and high frequencies, in real time.

Synergistic Research Atmospheres are room acoustic enhancement devices, placed between your speakers, that allow you to modify and improve the perceived soundstage as well as the quality of the sound from top to bottom of your system; all of this totally controlled by an iPad app.

The NEW Atmosphere Infinity benefits from a more powerful signal generator and is now infinitely scalable with the addition of optional plug and play Satellite Atmosphere Towers (for increased room saturation with more even RF dispersion than is possible with a single quad antenna Atmosphere tower. And because you can add one or more Atmosphere Satellite antennas controlled by a single Atmosphere Infinity you’ll have improved placement options perfect for difficult rooms that preclude a single Atmosphere Tower between your two main speakers; merely place one Atmosphere Infinity and additional Atmosphere Satellites in your listening room for added performance and added flexibility for your placement options.

Atmosphere is engineered to work in conjunction with HFT’s, UEF Acoustic Panels and DOTs, as well as the Black Box low-frequency resonator array, SR cables equipped with UEF Shielding, and Tranquility Base UEF platforms for the ultimate integration of every aspect of a system and acoustic performance.

Who it’s for?
The music lover with a full complement of Synergistic Research Acoustic Tech including HFT’s and or UEF Acoustic Panels and DOT’s and Black Box bass resonators looking for the ultimate in system room integration. They want the ability to actively control their acoustic environment to mirror different recordings and acoustic venues without the distortion of DSP processors that operate in-the-signal-path.

The Atmosphere Infinity comes in Black with Black trim or in White with Chrome trim and includes the RED Atmosphere Tuning Module (ATM).

With Atmosphere Infinity and Atmosphere Satellites you experience Atmosphere’s 7 acoustic scenes so convincingly you’ll swear you’ve been transported to a live event. Simply install the downloadable Atmosphere Control App to your iPad and select from a gallery of scenes that compliment different genres of music and acoustic spaces.

Customer feedback:
"...if you've gone all in with SR products, especially the UEF ones, you can take your system to a greater level of realism and musicality with the Atmosphere Infinity. I'm so impressed with this device and its ability to give you control over room acoustics and the ability to tailor them to fit the music style and genre and make music really come alive in a startling and very realistic way. I really think its SR's greatest achievement, so far..."

Prices:
- Atmosphere Infinity w/ATM red - $3,495 ea.
- Atmosphere XL Satellites - $1,995 ea.
- Atmosphere Satellite Mini - $1,195 ea.
- ATM Red - $495 ea.
- ATM Green - $695 ea.
