The Emergence AS8 speakers were designed to bring an audiophile quality listening experience to a broader audience, and have been researched and perfected for over 25 years, by acoustician and inventor Joe Hayes.
The speakers come with a 3 year warranty, and have a 30 day return policy, in case you are not completely satisfied with your purchase.
A strong validation of our technology, is how our speakers help the hearing impaired to hear audio more clearly. Audiologists are recommending the Emergence AS8s to their clients as an assistive technology for reducing the need for captions on television, and enabling listening at lower levels of volume.
Musicians and audio professionals the world over have endorsed our speakers, and we will let some of their words do the talking..
“With the AS8s you get perfect clarity; it's like putting on glasses when you're nearsighted.”
~ David Laks, owner and operator of David Laks Productions
“Indeed very interesting concept with the potential of creating a new and exciting standard for speaker enclosures. The interaction of the speaker to the few environments that we placed the speaker in, created a particularly diffuse and pleasant audio response.”
~ John Storyk - acoustic architectural designer, wsdg.com
“Words can’t describe the new experience I was hearing. The clarity was way beyond anything I’ve heard before. It was sort of like listening to music in a sound-proof room with top quality earphones, but honestly, no words can do it justice. ”
“It's so crisp, and you really feel the space...the space between the instruments. Voices just sound great in them. The harmonics....everything's so clean. The clarity is just so remarkable.”
~ Zachary Alford, Professional Drummer with credits including David Bowie, The B-52s, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Susanna Hoffs, Manic Street Preachers, David Torn and Patti Scialfa.
“The AS8 speaker system has been a great addition to our multi-use post production suite at Good Company! The system currently resides in a room that is 50% brick and windows, and they sound absolutely great in the environment. It’s allowed us to forgo hanging any acoustical treatment, instead saving that space for artwork and other items more pleasing to the eye:) In addition to the great sound, the ease of use switching between work stations (via bluetooth) to monitor playback during supervised sessions, has been a bonus to our workflow.”
~ Ralph Miccio, Head of Post Production at Good Company, NYC
“They defy what I know, or thought I knew about the physics of sound. They don't seem to be affected by the sound of the room, which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.”
~ Danny Blume, owner and operator of Hidden Quarry Studios

My experience with audio speakers is very limited and as I have normal for my age hearing in one ear it is a bit difficult for me to judge the difference the new speakers have made. Certainly the diction of those speaking on television is clearer and I am not missing as much of the dialogue when they have an accent. Bluetooth is still to be connected to the subwoofer so my experience listening to my music on CD is yet to come
The technology in this audio system is cutting edge. The spatial qualities, the clarity, the separation, for extended listening & motoring they are superb. I'm extremely happy to utilize them in my work environment & for simple listening pleasure.
hi i got my speakers through kickstarter, was super impressed when i first got them going . but them the stopped and cant seem to get bluetooth connecting so have fancy speakers i cant use . i got a replacement bluetooth box from support here but still no luck ?? any more help or set up videos would be great.
Set mine up yesterday in a "hostile" environment -- lots of sound reflecting surfaces and white noise -- and they sound better than any previous effort in this room and I've made plenty!
They look fantastic (I have the red ones) and *everyone* comments on them.
The new software voicing is great -- and I'm looking forward to more updates in that department.
Very, very happy with my purchase.
There is a beauty and immediacy to the sound that these speakers generate, that is different to any other speakers that I've heard. I have these setup for my office, and find they are perfect for conferencing as well as listening to my digitial music collection when I have some down time. The clearest and most beautiful audio that I've ever heard.
The biggest thing I noticed when first listening to these speakers was the clarity and cleanliness of the sound. I heard sounds on familiar songs that I never knew were there. It was like sitting in the recording studio listening to the recording being made. Best value for quality out there by far.
Had the AS8 system for a while and now have one in our media (TV) room and one on our CD player in the lounge. I say amazing because going back through my (60s) 70s and 80s music when they played instruments and not just electronics the clarity and nuances of all the sounds come out in living colour.
You hear every instrument as if you were in the mosh pit. How it stops the reflections and echoes in the rooms is something for the boffins to understand, I just know it leaves a crisp sound in your ears and thats it!
I've been listening to my Emergence AS8 system since without the rotorsonics technology and the 3D sound imaging is amazing. I live in a split level house. The speakers are upstairs and I'm usually on the lower level. I had friends visiting hanging out with me downstairs and i was playing some cool music from youtube on my iPad when they arrived. My friend asked me where my speakers were because she felt like the sound was right next to her. She turned around, and of course they weren't. Like an invisible presence. I loved that analogy. I loved that hearing music this way wasn't just a fabrication of my mind but that she experienced that too, without any prompting. I also noticed that i am no longer irritated by my husband's choice of music when he plays them through these speakers, because i'm not suffering any distortion in the acoustics, Just clean sound. Thanks guys. I can't wait too hear what more the rotorsonics are doing to this already perfect sound.
