Introduced in the year 2000, DaaDs are reborn in their new Mark II release with a redesigned internal construction for improved performance.
Throughout their sixteen years, thousands of DaaDs have been installed in the finest sounding rooms around the world. They are still the most versatile and efficient device for modern acoustic treatment in high fidelity listening environments where superlative system performance is demanded.
Aesthetically DaaD Mark II’s are identical to the original series; the important structural improvements are inside each DaaD Mark II model. The only visual difference is the new gold label, replacing the previous silver, and bearing the name Mark II on our classic oval.
After extensive in-depth research, we have replaced and reconfigured the original internal layers of acoustic material with innovative modern fibers. These materials are an exclusive progressive structure, the result of years of study into the microscopic infrastructure of synthetic fibers. Broad band absorption is even smoother than before, with an overall 20% increase in the efficiency of each DaaD II.
Increased efficiency means fewer devices are needed to achieve the same result while increasing the effectiveness of each DaaD II in its respective position within the room set up. This translates into lower average cost of each acoustic installation, while also achieving a more powerful result.
Our new internal materials are totally no-toxic, do not emit micro-particles into the air even after many years of use, and do not gradually yellow when exposed to direct sunlight. This insures both the long term functioning of our unique absorption/diffusion technology and the retention of each device’s cosmetic beauty.
With our new series of DaaD Mark II models, in addition to the tunable variable resonators Polifemo and Volcano, Acustica Applicata reinforces its supremacy as the most sophisticated and evolved range of products for acoustic treatment, specifically developed for high resolution playback in the home and recording studio.

The Acustica Applicata Sound Analyser
This is one of the most useful and effective tools in determining the correct loudspeaker listening position for any Hi-Fi or Home Cinema system. Being extremely easy to use, accurate and reliable, it will allow you to investigate musical articulation, tonal balance and sound focusing in your home environment.
Transform your personal computer into a graphic recorder, you will then be shown a visualization of any type of audio signal with immediate RT60 measurements.
With Audio Quality Test (AQT), developed by Acustica Applicata, you can analyze the real acoustic performance of a listening room from 20 to 2.000 Hz. Specify your room sizes and the software calculates and plots the distribution of fundamental room modes and following harmonics.
A truly powerful tool for anyone who would like to increase the performance of their system.
-Displays the true behaviour of room resonances.
-Unveils the frequency ranges where compression and cancelling are located.
-Graphically shows the articulation for both music and speech between 20 and 2.000 Hz.
-Automatically measures and shows the mean articulation of listening environments.
-Analyzes the behaviour of frequency ranges and single tones.
-Draws on screen the shape of the tonal balance.
-Graphical recorder with sliding paper.
-Real time display of RMS and peak value of Sound Pressure Level
-Immediate RT60 measurement for both large band signals and single frequencies.
-Software emulated standard “A”, “C” audio filters, working in real-time.
-Different integrating time constants: slow, fast, impulse, AQT, reverb.
-Overload and realtime indicators.
-The graphscan be printed on paper to an exact scale (from 100 mm/s to 1 mm/s).
-The graphs can be freely zoomed and panned.
Audio Quality Test analysis
-Playback of the AQT test signal from both the CD player or from a wave file.
-Real-time recording of the signal at the listening position, with RMS conversion.
-Automatic “one button” AQT analysis.
-Up to 4 tracks simultaneously on screen and on print to make the comparisons easy.
-Single burst analysis to display the behavior of resonances at specific frequencies and to measure the RT60 for single burst.
