About Ken Kreisel

www.kreiselsound.com [cached]

Ken Kreisel (Founder of Miller & Kreisel Sound, inventor of the self-powered subwoofer and
satellite-subwoofer system) has a dedicated and loyal worldwide following of the top studios and film, music, & video game recording engineers, avid audiophiles, music lovers, home theater film buffs, magazine reviewers and editors. Ken Kreisel has always been an innovator, willing to be different and daring, to take new paths, to see a new way of doing something, to offer more and better audio performance at real world prices, to embrace new technologies when they really work, and to avoid "me too" "emperor's clothes" and "smoke & mirror" audio gimmicks. It is not by luck that the top award winning recording engineers and studios use speakers and subwoofers designed by Ken Kreisel for their most critical sonic decisions. An audiophile recording engineer himself since the age of 12, Ken Kreisel has spent a lifetime recording everything from his teenage sister's singing voice, to some of the world's largest church pipe organs, Flamenco Dancers, spectacular drum solos, to some of the world's most famous jazz artists, to The Philharmonia Hungarica Orchestra recorded in Germany, and to the London Symphony Orchestra and The English Chamber Orchestra recorded in Abbey Road Studios in London. Ken Kreisel subwoofers and speakers are designed to effortlessly and accurately reproduce whatever sound that was captured by a studio microphone with all the detail and explosive impact of the original sound. How does KEN KREISEL do it, as is frequently asked? First, you need to know what you are doing, have well trained and experienced audiophile and professional recording engineer's ears, and have the proper test equipment to prove it. Why do Ken Kreisel's subwoofers sound so good and why do so many of the top film and music recording engineers use them for their most critical professional sound decision? Like so many things in life, there are two important and often diametrically opposed words, quality and quantity. A professional recording engineer is more interested in quality than quantity. He needs a transparent and neutral window into whatever sound is being recorded, created, or mixed. Speakers and subwoofers designed by Ken Kreisel have always successfully filled this need. While most consumer subwoofers are more concerned with quantity, sound quality and accuracy have always been the primary criteria for any speaker or subwoofer designed by Ken Kreisel.

Kreisel Sound Timeline

Ken Kreisel is a teenage audiophile and audiophile recording engineer.
Making audio history: Ken Kreisel designs and installs for Walter Becker the first M&K Subwoofer and triamped studio monitor system for the studio mixdown of Steely Dan's Pretzel Logic album. Ken Kreisel and Jonas Miller launch Miller & Kreisel Sound (M&K) founded in Beverly Hills, CA. Contrary to popular rumors, M&K started its subwoofer & speaker production in the prestigious high rent district of Beverly Hills on Wilshire Blvd., not Ken's garage 1974 Ken Kreisel's first Direct-To-Disc recordings: Blu and Blu Jam Again making audio history, Kreisel invents the modern day "Satellite-Subwoofer" system, The "David and Goliath" System 1976 Click to enlarge In 1977 Kreisel and M&K debuts the world's first Self-Powered Subwoofer! This model was called the Servo Volkswoofer. This idea revolutionized the entire audio industry 1977 1978 marks the consumer audio release of Kreisel's innovative world-class professional studio monitor speaker system design called the Satellite-Volkswoofer System. This system was originally designed by Kreisel for his own use in the M&K RealTime Direct-to-Disc recording studio. Incorporating controlled vertical directivity, a phase-focused crossover with true driver group-delay time alignment, dual-midrange and tweeter driver arrays and minimal baffle coloration, this system made for one of the most dramatic and revealing listening experiences imaginable 1978 Long before (the term) "Home Theater" was used in a sales context, Ken Kreisel was building professional screening rooms for directors, producers and the Hollywood elite. With the 70's popularity of audiophile recordings, Kreisel opens the FIRST exclusively direct-to-disc recording studio. The 600 watt per channel German built Neumann Disc Cutting Lathe shown here was owned by M&K and operated and custom modified by Kreisel to achieve even greater sonic fidelity 1978 Kreisel engineers and releases some of the most highly acclaimed and spectacular direct-to-disc LP's, which are still considered by the world's audiophiles to be some of the best sounding LP's ever recorded, 5 of which are shown here Kreisel exhibited at professional and consumer trade shows and continually amazed the visitors and skeptics, winning over thousands of new fans and loyal customers 1979 Ken Kreisel becomes one of the first customers to buy the Sony PCM-1600 ($40,000 in 1979), the world's first Professional Digital Audio Recorder. Here Kreisel is seen with engineers from Sony's newly formed fledgling division called Sony Professional Digital Audio. Kreisel worked with Sony engineers giving them feedback on the design of their PCM-1600 prototype units during its development in the 70's. After purchasing the PCM-1600, Kreisel set about highly modifying the unit. In keeping with the flavor of the day, the explanations were fairly technical, and Ken Kreisel was there at every turn to explain how everything worked. At Abbey Road Studios in London, Kreisel produces and engineers a series of audiophile classical recordings with the English Chamber Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra Designed by Kreisel, a new innovation in subwoofer technology: Push-Pull drivers, used in M&K's new MX Series. Push-Pull is achieved by mounting one driver physically backwards in the cabinet and wiring it backwards as well, causing both driver cones to move mechanically in the same direction. The result is acoustic cancellation of even order harmonic distortion, cleaner, tighter and more accurate musical bass reproduction, and significantly improved high-output linearity 1989 In 1989, Kreisel introduced the industry's first push-pull dual driver powered subwoofer. Known as the MX-2000, this groundbreaking subwoofer was immediately recognized by audiophiles as a major advance in subwoofer performance. This rare historic picture shows M&K Vice President Chuck Back, M&K President Ken Kreisel, Dr. Lester Field, and Jonas Miller Kreisel introduces the in dustry's first compact, high-performance subwoofer, the MX-70, featuring Kreisel's Push-Pull driver configuration 1991 Kreisel introduces the first THX approved single-cabinet subwoofer, the MX-5000 Kreisel introduces the M&K S-150 THX Kreisel Invents the TRIPOLE Surround Featuring a unique 180 degree sound radiation pattern with DIRECT FRONT and FIGURE-8 SIDE-FIRING drivers, the Tripole produces near perfect sound illumination for side and rear surround speaker use in home theaters! Ken Kreisel issued a patent concerning Push-Pull Technology, Sub Servo Feedback, and distortion reduction, one of the most important patents in speaker design 1996 Kreisel launches M&K PROFESSIONAL as a separate division of M&K with an international network of dealers and distributors catering to the world's top studios 1997 The world's most prominent studios, producers, directors, engineers, sound designers and mixers use speakers and subwoofers designed and built by Ken Kreisel to create their soundtracks, CD's, DVD's, live musical events, and broadcasts and to insure the detail and accuracy of their mixes: 1997 Kreisel invents a new type of high performance INWALL speaker utilizing a 12 gauge steel speaker baffle and a magnetically attached frameless mesh grille Pro Sound News does an in-depth interview of Ken Kreisel Ken Kreisel is inducted into the Beverly Hills High School Hall of Fame, Class of '69 Kreisel introduces the Column Surround TRIPOLE Speaker - an industry first - unique in that they may be placed behind a sofa (for example) therefore becoming invisible to the rest of the room! Once again, Kreisel is at the forefront embracing new technology, having a proud history of supporting ALL technological and artistic advances in audio Ken Kreisel & the Storm Trooper.
