Its exterior is a perfect symbiosis of the extravagant design of the Concentro and the clean lines of the VELA Series. The trapezoid basic shape, wraparound baffle, and gently angled cabinet combine to convey a natural, low-key appearance. The striking bottom assembly achieves a ‘high-heel’ effect, imparting a sense of elegance and stability. Incidentally, it also guarantees an exceptionally sound footing.
The innovative stepX-JET features a concentric chassis built around a new JET 5c tweeter and a midrange driver with an aluminum membrane. A patented technology uses exchangeable DCRs (Directivity Control Ring) to tailor the directional
characteristics in the mid-frequency range to conditions in the listening area. The different DCRs (three aluminum DCRs are included as standard) are used to influence the relationship between direct and diffuse sound in the listening area.
Side-Firing Long Throw Woofers
Four powerful side-firing long-throw woofers ensure effortless performance. The special ICD configuration (Impluse Compensated Design) guarantees contoured bass reproduction free of any coloration due to unwanted mechanical vibrations. Put simply, the Concentro S 509 will satisfy the most discerning listeners by reproducing audio signals to perfection across the entire frequency spectrum and at all volumes.

Greetings New Mexico audiophiles and music lovers. This is Neal Van Berg from Sound Science. I received my first Audiogon feedback 17 years ago. Then Sound Science was called Moonlight Audio. At that time I was working full time for Hewlett Packard and had started moonlighting selling home audio gear out of my house. Thus the name Moonlight Audio. It was during this time I developed my first audio product called the FBI for “Fast Burn In adapter”. It was an adapter to convert the IEC connector of a high end power cord to a female electrical outlet. This was/is a method to connect a high current load to your high end power cord and burn it in quickly, this time of year an electric heater will do the trick to bring plenty of current through your power cord and burn it in.
In 2006 I designed a custom built music server to work with the Slim Devices Squeezebox and Transporter. I named it the Music Vault. In 2008 I redesigned the Music Vault to be a stand alone server with a SPDIF digital output that could play any sample rate up to 192K samples per second. At that time the few servers that existed could only play either 44.1K or 96K sample rates, they could not switch sample rates automatically like the new Music Vault. I continue to update the Music Vault to be the best sounding server and as in the beginning the Music Vaults
have always been memory players with bit perfect output along with being one of the few complete servers that will copy your CDs to its built in blu-ray drive.
Sound Science is a brick and mortar audio retail store in lovely Taos New Mexico, we moved here from Colorado 3 years ago. We are New Mexico’s exclusive Tannoy Dealer and the exclusive Elac Concentro Speaker dealer. We have also been selling Lyngdorf longer than any other dealer in the USA.

Communication via email allows me to let you know about specials and products I think you will be interested in. Advertising on Audiogon makes many of the companies I retail uncomfortable however emailing you the same information doesn’t. Take a chance and join my email list.
