Bringing Power and Clarity to Cinema Sound

I'm very impressed with the effortless power and clarity of sound of the Meyer Sound cinema system. If only every theatre had a system like this they would have the same remarkable experience I have on my stage.”

Introduced in 2009, Meyer Sound's EXP is the first cinema system of its kind, created exclusively for the unique demands of cinema applications from post-production to exhibition.

Meyer Sound's EXP defines rigorous performance levels for cinema sound from the dub stage to exhibition. Built for sonic linearity, EXP systems empower sound designers and mixers to create soundtracks with greater nuance and precision, and give cinema operators the ability to faithfully reproduce these soundtracks without distortion to every seat in the house.

Based around the new Acheron line of self-powered loudspeakers*, system integration tools, and comprehensive design support, EXP comprises system design and the accurate implementation of performance criteria which comply with SMPTE industry standards.

With greater headroom, lower distortion, flatter frequency and phase response, and superior uniformity, Meyer Sound EXP systems give audiences a movie-going experience that keeps them coming back.
