About Strauss Elektroakustik

After 20 years of continuous production of the Midfield SE-MF-2 Mastering Studio Monitor we developed the LIT electrodynamic transducer as the next step forward in audio reproduction quality.

The Low Inductivity Technology LIT consists of a new designed motor, smaller moving masses and reduced mechanical resistance. In consequence resolution of the reproduction is improoved and very low harmonic and non-harmonic distortions are achieved.

By further optimizations of the compression drivers a lowered crossover point is implemented. Therefore the SE-MF-2.1 Mastering Studio Monior offers improved homogeneously dispersion resulting in a narrowed point source.

The Low Inductivity Technology LIT is also implemented in the new Midfield SE-MF-4 Mastering Studio Monitor, which replaces the SE-MF-1.

The classic Nearfield Monitor SE-NF-3 remains unchanged since the year 2006.

But why choose passive SE MASTERING STUDIO MONITORS in these days of active loudspeakers with analogue or digital controllers?

– Precision mechanics cannot be replaced by electronics.

– High quality passive filtering outmatches the performance of active-­analogue control.

– The optimisation of group delay time is achieved without active-­digital control.

– Power amplifiers can only be compared by means of passive transducers.

– Innovations in amplifier and Eq-controller constructions can be incorporated into monitoring systems where passive transducers are used.

– The solid dimensioning of their electrical and mechanical elements guarantees acoustic reliability and sustained quality.

In addition to the SE MASTERING STUDIO MONITORS we developed the new audio amplifiers SE-PA-100 (Stereo) and SE-PA-250 (Mono). Both amplifiers using the same HGBT-Technology for lowest distortion and unprecedented resolution over the hole frequency range – look at the White Paper at www.strauss-elektroakustik.com.

Research / Teaching

• Research and teaching in the fields of architecture and acoustics and sound aesthetics
• Development of room and electroacoustic projects in the fields of new media, sound arts and sound design

Jürgen Strauss completed his training to become a physics laboratory technician at Landis & Gyr / Zug. He specialises within the electroacoustic field on the development and production of loudspeakers and public address systems for studios, concert halls, churches, museums and cinemas. Through the combination of electro and room acoustics, his sphere of activities expanded into architecture and sound engineering. Alongside his interests in systematic acoustics, he also investigates issues involving scientific, technology and art history.
