ST2-HiFi received the Stereo Sound Grand Prix 2015.
6moons Award 2011
The well-known 6moons online magazine awarded the ST2-HiFi in 2011, with the ‘Blue Moon Award’.
When a technical advance provides as much gain in listening, and the technique is put at the service of sound realism and the pleasure of the user, we do not even discuss. The ST2-HiFi is a powerful tool capable of sublimating any audio installation in any room, and with an interesting choice of configurations. Considering its price, it will be used in advanced installations, but its performance will be absolutely obvious in all cases. In addition, it does not prevent you from continuing to evolve your system. It is a very valuable link that will be part ad vitam æternam of your panoply, just like excellent cables or high quality stands. When looking into changing one of your components, the purchase of such a product can be much more judicious and guarantee a decisive gain.
Conclusion: Vividly balanced and musical
The Trinnov ST2-HiFi is the gateway drug in the world of corrected Optimizer sound that sounds somehow more real and authentic than virtually every other speaker and room correction. Despite the complexity of the technology everyone who has not only left hands should be able to handle the device. Once set up and calibrated, the handling in everyday life is easy, but sometimes you would wish for more than just a power button on the front. Nevertheless, the operation via VNC app is smartly solved. Qualitatively, the analog and digital paths in Trinnov ST2-HiFi are equally high end. The sound character is balanced, honest and very plastic in all layers, the music beautiful flowing making you move your feet. A pleasant bridge between professional and gourmet world.
Where Lyngdorf, Dirac and other solutions failed to impress me Trinnov ST2-HiFi is instrumental with practical results, that keeps the musicality…
Issue #20 – December 2015
Created for seamless integration of any sound in the room where it will be installed, this sophisticated electronics shines by offering a virtually unlimited flexibility.
The introduction of this device in a system is spectacular, and once the optimization is performed, it becomes impossible to do without its contribution. The benefits in terms of tonal perfection, precision of the stereophonic image and cleanliness of listening is such that removing the ST2-HiFi correction is heartbreaking.
We never had the opportunity to hear such a musicality with any other digital acoustic correction. Our near-perfect Magico M5 revealed us all their skills. The richness and the clarity of reproduction made us rediscover the content selected by listening: the soft whispers and breaths stood out more, the body of the instruments accurately reproduced, the subtleties of a touch on the piano restored with power and precision. The correction could never be perceived and does not add any coloration to the sound. Everything finally seemed more true, as if our audio chain had been released from a burden. It may seem daring to say that the rendering of the Optimizer is a miracle, but we’re pretty damn close!
