Onkyo and Sonic Emotion release iLunar 3D sound system

The new iLunar residential audio system incorporates Onkyo’s 3D sound processing technology.

Manufacturer of home entertainment products Onkyo and Swiss audio company Sonic Emotion have collaborated to create the iLunar music system. The residential audio system incorporates Onkyo’s 3D sound processing technology to ‘place the listener centre stage – irrespective of their location within the room’. Absolute 3D works by locating sound objects within a stereo mix, recreating their original positions using the iLunar’s loudspeaker array. Together with Onkyo’s audio engineering, the technology allows listeners to experience natural, immersive sound from anywhere in the room. “We are delighted to release the new iLunar, which was jointly developed with Sonic Emotion,” said Mr. Nobuaki Okuda, CTO of Onkyo Corporation. “Over the last few years, we’ve been working on creating some exciting new Listening Style Audio systems, and we are gratified by the favorable response in markets around the world. “We believe we can continue to provide a dynamic listening experience to customers with our iLunar, which features Absolute 3D sound technology. With our Value Creation concept, we provide a new value proposition to our customers. We will continue to work hard to introduce products and services with the power to move.” “Partnering with Onkyo to create, develop and launch iLunar with our Absolute 3D sound technology has been an incredible experience,” said Rajeev Kapur, CEO of Sonic Emotion. “Onkyo’s history of providing consumers with innovative, high-quality products mirrors Sonic Emotion’s dedication to providing a sound experience that is second to none, further confirming Sonic Emotion’s technology as the best solution for manufacturers.”
