Sea Pine Cottage

Sea Pine Cottage is one of the Meadow Homes of The Sea Ranch. It is situated a few hundred yards from the rugged shore line that is typical of Northern California. The wide open meadow is a natural surrounding for deer, rabbits and birds of every kind. Relax in a lounge chair on the deck or upstairs balcony and watch the wildlife move by. The ocean may be too cold for anything but wading due to its year-round temperature of 55 F (13 C), but with three swimming pools, saunas, tennis courts, a golf course, and miles of hiking trails that meander along the coastal cliffs, through meadows and forests, there is no shortage of outdoor activity in the sunny yet temperate climate of Sea Ranch. Or, soak in the hot tub on the deck of Sea Pine Cottage on a starry night. Even the occasional winter storms, with their high winds and driving rains, become an enjoyable experience when watched through the window, and comforted by the warmth from a crackling wood stove, a good book and something to nibble. Bring your favorite CD and listen here to the PLUTO-2 sound system.

PLUTO-2 has been set up for CD and DVD sound and i-Pod input. 

The loudspeakers are state-of-the art and are capable of accurate sound reproduction. Here in Sea Pine Cottage they could not be optimally placed so that the room boundaries would be symmetrical to the speaker and listener triangle. Therefore phantom imaging is poor and not representative at all of what PLUTO-2 is capable of. Frequency response wise, though, you get a good indication of their capabilities. Place the speakers on the rug, away from the walls and closer to the sofa. Listen also from different locations in the room and upstairs. Any further need  of bass would be easily made up by adding the PLUTO+ subwoofers. 

Bring your favorite CDs or even your iPod and enjoy. Hear for yourself whether this is a loudspeaker that is worth pursuing, to build it yourself or to purchase it from Wood Artistry.

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself 
but what has drawn your attention
in the two streams of superimposed air pressure variations at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space
Have they been recorded and rendered sensibly?
