(Principal Conductor Göttinger Symphonie Orchester)
„Resonance and reverberation are both much improved and the beauty and cohesiveness of the sound greatly enhanced. The brilliance of the timbre is far more intensive and the overall sound is finer and more translucent. Musicians respond immediately to the improved acoustics and listeners are surrounded by natural sounding room acoustics.“
Duisburg: Theater am Marientor
For the Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra, GMD Giordano Bellincampi and Intendant Dr. Alfred Wendel::
„We never thought it would be possible to produce such good and quite perfect natural sounding acoustics it was possible to achieve in the musical "Theater am Marientor" in Duisburg - without even any work-intensive conversion or installation work. The musicians, the audience and the press were all very impressed by the demonstrations of acoustic shaping during orchestral and chamber music concerts, not least because many musicians and visitors were well aware of just how problematic the acoustics of this room are without any electro acoustic optimisation.“
Rheinische Post: Acoustic shaping in the TaM
„It was wonderful to experience such a full and transparent musical sound in the philharmonic concert with the necessary reverberation in contrast to the dreadful acoustics we are used to in the TaM.“

Prof. Gerrit Zitterbart
„The acoustic shaping produced such a good sound, there's no longer any reason to refurbish difficult concert halls!“
according to Gerrit Zitterbart, Hanover-based professor of the piano, soloist and chamber musician (Abegg Trio), whose first experience of acoustic shaping was during his performance of John Field's Piano Concerto No. 7 with the Göttingen Symphony Orchestra in the Deutsches Theater in Göttingen.
Prof. Oliver Curdt
"The "new" room acoustics have a positive effect ... also on my main microphone."
The professor for sound design and sound engineering at the HdM (Hochschule der Medien) Stuttgart has been recording regularly at the Stadthalle Göttingen.
Audimax of the University of Hamburg
On the occasion of a rehearsal of the University Orchestra (conductor: René Gulikers) Saalakustik.de performed an impressive demonstration of the acoustic shaping in front of sound engineers and acousticians. For the first time ever, the room designed for the acoustic requirements of lectures with its approx. 1000 seats sounded like a real concert hall.
Concert Barn Bennigsen
At the summer festival at the Rittergut Bennigsen, the acoustic shaping was used for the two concerts in the large concert barn.
Both the Gewandhaus Quartet Leipzig and the conductor Roderic von Bennigsen (in the concert with the Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra) were extremely impressed by the transformation of the acoustics of the location into a fully-fledged concert hall sound.
