AcoustX our mission is to provide cinema technicians with products
and services that aid in producing the highest quality of sound in
cinema and home theatres.
Our goal is to make available the best technology, which is easy to
use, at a very reasonable cost. We are service oriented, so please call
whenever you need to consider a purchase, need an estimate, or just
want some plain good advice.
of our products and services have been developed on the basis of
many years of audio and cinema experience and are both theoretically
sound and in-the-field practical.
Our D2 system is one of the most comprehensive tools ever developed for
sound technicians to evaluate and adjust theatre sound. Our products
are lightweight, but sturdy and well built, so you can carry them into
the field with confidence.
While we recommend the integrated D2 system, some of the components can
also be bought individually. win|RTA is a great
analyzing tool that can be used with any high quality microphone. For
best results, combine win|RTA with an approved interface.

"The D2 system has been invaluable to our work in making critical decisions
on loudspeaker design and cinema work. We have other RTA equipment in our
lab, but the D2 is fast and ultimately gives us an excellent repeatable
library of responses. In our cinema installations the D2 has been our
cornerstone, oftentimes working along side other measuring equipment with
dependable, comparable results. I can and would use any brand, but I choose
the D2 system."

"I am very impressed with the D2. Having been a user for many years of
the THX Analyzer, I appreciate its compact size and friendly interface.
And having used many different analyzers, this is probably the best."

Hollywood's finest sound mixers are in our QC Theater every day, along with post production
supervisors, sound designers, sound and picture editors, studio executives, and talent. It is imperative
that the performance of the room be at its best, all of the time. The D2 Studio Acoustic Analysis System
has proven to be my most valuable audio instrument, allowing me to ensure that the room is held tight
to SMPTE tolerances.
By fact that the microphones are calibrated to an absolute reference via offset files, for both frequency
response, and sound pressure level, the D2 Studio, is truly a neutral part of the tuning process. Other
acoustic analyzers have no provision for ensuring the microphone frequency response is dead flat, and
therefore do not allow for accurate measurement.
The WIN|RTA software is incredibly intuitive and easy to use. Measurements are accurate and
When I first saw the A-Chain setup software, I was a little skeptical, whether the oscilloscope X/Y + RTA
function would be fast enough to tune optical and magnetic reproducers. After using it to tune the
optical sound reproducers on our 35mm projectors, and comparing the results to hardware based
oscilloscope and RTA, I was convinced. The results were repeatable. I have since used only the D2 Studio
to perform all sound alignments.
Tim Holmes has created an incredibly reliable and invaluable analyzer kit. He is very personable, and
happy to assist with any questions. If you're in the market, I recommend the D2.
