World’s First ultimate Psychoacoustic Audio System!?


World’s First Psychoacoustic Audio System Unveiled at Monaco Yacht Show

ASKJA was founded by Didier Kwak, best known for his visual effects work and collaboration with Luc Besson on the film The Fifth Element. Having built his first amplifier at age 15, Didier has also cultivated had a lifelong passion for music and audio equipment. He created ASKJA to address the lack of the performance of all other systems, and to bridge exquisite sound and art. Each Origin system is handcrafted in Switzerland to custom finish specifications as desired by the owner. 

Requiring years of scientific studies and extensive testing, the ASKJA Origin system transcends music the way haute couture transcends fashion

Paris, France – September 20, 2016: The world’s first psychoacoustic audio system, the pioneering ASKJA Origin, will be showcased to an exclusive list of guests and VIPs September 27th through October 2nd 2016 during the Monaco Yacht Show.

The ASKJA Origin system was painstakingly created by engineer, inventor and visionary Didier Kwak. Best known for his pioneering work in visual effects for a wide variety of films directors (Luc Besson, Baz Luhrmann, Wim Wenders and many others), Didier’s talenthas been to combine high-end technology and art.

Dissatisfied with today’s audio solutions, Didier began designed ASKJA Origin together with some of the world’s most sophisticated designers and engineers, with his first stop in the Formula One world. Having identified similar patterns between air expulsion in a loud-speaker and air penetration of a race car at 300 km/h, Didier struck a partnership with Swiss Fibertec, a specialist in high quality carbon work pieces manufacturing and high precision moulds for applications like motor sport, aerospace and defence.

For two years, in both Paris and Switzerland, Didier worked closely with Swiss Fibertec’s Elmar Jaeger, the man who designed two of Michael Schumacher’s winning Ferraris, to blend psycho-acoustics, fluid mechanics and aerodynamic science into the ASKJA Origin system. Additional partners in Denmark, Germany and Japan met other specific design challenges with intense material testing, fabrication and fine tuning.

“We’ve created the opposite of most mainstream audio systems: a highest- efficiency system, a totally original solution, completely distinctive from anything the listener has ever experienced before,” said Didier Kwak. “Listeners are simply immersed in a vivid, lifelike presentation of a live musical performance.”

From replicating all the harmonics of a guitar string, to faithfully replicating sound ”decay” and, extraordinarily, even replicating true silence, the system’s enclosures are the result of complex aerodynamic designs which ensure that sound waves flow through and “bounce off” without creating vibration – with the final result being 24,000 times more sound-efficient than wood.

“The Origin system’s visual presence is one-of-a-kind, with lines and design elements only shared with fine sculptures and works of art, each selected to complement and contribute to the home’s refined décor,” continued Kwak. ”ASKJA Origin simply transcends music the way haute couture transcends fashion.”
