Syng Cell Alpha Debuts: World’s First Triphonic Speaker

New audio company Syng introduces the world’s first triphonic speaker aiming to deliver an immersive spatial audio listening experience like never before.

Syng is the brainchild of former Apple lead designer, Christopher Stringer. He left his role to join forces with co-founder Damon Way (DC Shoes, Incase) to build a product that would revolutionize the way people listen to music.

Syng’s first product is a loudspeaker called Cell Alpha. It utilizes a triphonic design, said to be the world’s first speaker to do so. Its goal is to create a fully immersive experience that puts you at the center of your favorite music and entertainment. But to get that ultimate experience, you may need three of them.

Priced at $1799 each, we’re not sure who it’s for. At least until we hear it, because it doesn’t fit into any traditional audio category. It’s not a sound bar, not a home theater speaker system, and doesn’t appear to have the inputs audiophiles crave. Although, potentially it could be used for all three cases.

Very little specification wise is known at this time. It appears to be an active wireless speaker, whereby everything is controlled via companion app called Syng Space. We can see that packed into each spheroid shaped speaker are top and bottom (force-balanced) subwoofers, and a triphone array containing three midrange woofers and horn tweeters. Syng says it’s a single point source design that emanates sound from the core.

We know more about what Syng Cell Alpha claims to do. Not how it does it.

What Cell Alpha is supposed to deliver is spatial audio like we’ve never heard before. The company says, “Triphonic audio turns listening into feeling. This object-based sonic architecture allows you to hear, see, and touch sounds, offering full control with precise placement and localization. You can put sound wherever you want, shrink it, move it, magnify it, and layer it. Or let the Cell handle everything – with Triphonic audio, it’s able to virtualize any speaker array and accurately spatialize sound for your room. When sound is all around you, it’s intimate, totally enveloping and unlike anything you’ve ever heard.”

How does it do that?

The app and a lot of DSP, we think. The Syng Space app is designed to not only tailor a single Cell Alpha to your room, but all also know where additional Cell Alpha’s are located. The app controls it automatically and adjusts accordingly. One Cell Alpha can be used, but the company says 3 would provide the maximum immersive experience if you can sit within the sound field. Ideally two in front of you and one behind you.

Syng further states, “Triphonic’s dynamic sound is unmatched in quality as well as potential. As you add more Cells to your home, you unlock new levels of spatial control and possibility. By projecting sound with unrivaled precision to exactly the right place in your sound field, Cell Alpha creates sound that is more spacious and immersive than ever before.”

Definitely unique. Very intriguing.
