Ultra-Quiet Toshiba System
Hi-Fi Specialist Chooses Ref-Sol Limited and Ultra-Quiet Toshiba System for High-End Listening Studio
- Client Sonority Design
- Services R32-based Toshiba air conditioning system
Ref-Sol have installed an ultra-low noise, R32-based Toshiba air conditioning system for Audio engineers at hi-fi specialist Sonority Design to ensure the best possible listening environment for customers. TCUK is a joint venture between Toshiba and Carrier in the United Kingdom, and is part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
The Brierley Hill-based company researched and compared sound levels generated by air conditioning systems and concluded that Toshiba’s bi-flow RAS console split system was the quietest available. It produces a sound pressure range of just 31-46dB(A), equivalent to a quiet bedroom in the dead-of-night and the hushed environment of a university study library.
Nigel Kuscher, Managing Director of Ref-Sol Limited, which installed the Toshiba system, said: “Our client specialises in very high-end hi-fi systems, which require the lowest possible ambient noise to preserve the outstanding audio reproduction. Based on their own research and coupled with their knowledge of sound, they established that the Toshiba bi-flow system was the quietist available, and would deliver the comfortable environment needed for customers to audition equipment without detracting from the audio experience.”
He added: “The other consideration was aesthetic design, in order to blend in with the up-market ambience of its retail outlet and listening studio. The discrete appearance and flowing curves of the Toshiba bi-flow console unit were a perfect match.”
The design of the Toshiba bi-flow system allows air discharge from the top and bottom of the unit, reducing turbulence and associated sound emissions while delivering excellent comfort conditions and energy efficiency.
It uses the latest digital hybrid inverter technology to precisely match output to demand, further reducing sound levels, and is equipped with a fine-filter system to ensure Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
The Sonority Design system delivers a total of 7.2kW of cooling and has an energy label rating of A++. Indoor units are Toshiba’s console model RAS-B18UFV-E1, and the outdoor unit is a model RA3M27S3AV-E.
