Walker Audio Introduces New In-Home System Optimization Offering

AUDUBON, PA--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2012) - Walker Audio, manufacturer of award-winning turntables and high-end audio products, now offers to the general public the same setup and optimization expertise for digital and analog systems that was previously only available to Proscenium turntable owners.

"Many people who truly love music are not hearing the best their system can do," says Lloyd Walker, founder of Walker Audio. "When I visit customers, I spend a lot of time addressing systemic issues that affect the sound. The sad truth is that some systems with the most expensive components can sound the worst. 

Walker explains that a really good component will often reveal the other problems in the system. Every system, regardless of price, must deal with issues like vibration, resonances, electrical noise, and quality of source material before it can sound its best. Many people are either unaware of the effect these factors have on the sound or don't know how to counteract them.

"The goal," says Walker, "is to properly pick up the signal at the source and transmit it through the system with the minimum amount of information being added to or taken away from the signal. Then, you can hear what your system really sounds like."

Walker has more than 30 years of experience in setting up digital and analog audio equipment.

His expertise includes analysis of and recommendations for source material preparation, room treatment, system location, speaker placement and system components; discussion of music selection and listening technique; demonstration of the effect of resonance, vibration, ambient and system-generated noise on the sound, recommendations and demonstrations of power supply and cable choices for the system.

According to one customer: "I have always been pleased by the sound, but I knew I was missing something... that little extra feeling of 'being there' that takes a system from being simply very good to jaw dropping. You provided that 'something' last week... you tried things that the vast majority of people -- no matter how experienced they might be -- would never think to do."

The fee for in-home system optimization varies by location. No product purchase is required. Contact Walker Audio at 610.666.6087 or email SystemOpt@WalkerAudio.com.

Walker Audio manufactures the Proscenium Black Diamond III turntable which features an isolated air suspension for the turntable base, an air-bearing platter and arm. List price $89,995 USD.
