If you are looking to get the best sound you can whilst dancing you might went to check out the new Despacio sound system which has been created and pumps out 50,000 watts of music power and was built after 2 years of development.
The Despacio sound system has been designed by LCD Soundsystem and thanks to James Murphy, together with audio engineer John Klett and mashup masters 2ManyDJs, which consists of David and his brother Stephen Dewaele. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the awesome Despacio sound system project.
Despacio is Spanish for slow and was originally designed to be used for a night in Ibiza offering clubbers a top class sound system where DJs would only be able to use vinyl. The stacks are 3.5 metres tall and equipped with four 15-inch drivers, two amp racks supporting three McIntosh amps each, four 12-inch drivers with a “birdhouse” at the top housing four tweeters along with a horn, that runs from 2,000hz up to 10,000hz.
Stephen Dewaele explains : “We wanted to take records and slow them down, taking 45s and playing them at 33. It gives another quality to music; it’s swampy and sexy,”
Ellis Reid, McIntosh Integrated Marketing Manager explains: “This is something we really believed in conceptually. To build one of the best sound systems in the world—one that would only play vinyl—with the focus being on the integrity of audio and music,”-“As a company we very much stand for the preservation of the appreciation of sound reproduction.”
