Classic Theater Sound in Your Home
Western Electric Mirrophonic System from Silbatone Collection
Inspiration of the classics with modern enhancements
goal of Silbatone Acoustics is to recreate the musical enjoyment of the
great theater systems in the home, creating practical realizations for
today's serious music listeners.
Nowadays, it is very difficult to find an opportunity to listen to a
complete Golden-Era Western Electric theater system due to extreme
scarcity and the practical problems of installing full-sized
amphitheater speakers in most listening rooms. Not only is the
performance of Western Electric equipment unsurpassed within the
specialized technical goals of 1920s-1940s theater sound, but we
discovered many lessons for contemporary home music reproduction in
these great classics.
musical presentation of large-scale theater systems is entirely
different from modern audiophile gear: faster, smoother, more
dynamic and vivid, but also extremely natural and unforced. One
is impressed by extreme delicacy and nuance, as well as the raw power
of large horns and multiple 18 inch field coil woofers. The scale and
impact of the experience is far beyond typical high-fidelity
The golden age of cinema was also the era of the triode amplifier, a superior technology rediscovered by today's audio listeners. The best 1920s and 1930s triode amplifiers were and are very luxurious to listen to but we believe that we can do even better with modern materials and designs, without losing any of the magic of the classics.
Every year since 2001, Silbatone makes further progress in our effort to bring the best modern interpretation of theater sound into the listening room. We use the best available parts including rare vintage tubes and silver transformers, the finest quality metalwork in the industry, and innovative and exciting engineering to take the classic approach to vacuum tube audio where it has never gone before!
