In 1971 after huge success with the EMT 140, EMT delivered the EMT 240 Reverb Foil. The surface of the vibrating 0.02 mm gold foil measured only 30 X 30 cm. The foil was contained in a double enclosure affording very high isolation from airborne and solid-borne disturbances, sufficient to allow placement of the EMT 240 even in mobile units or - at a sound pressure level of 105 dB - next to monitor loudspeakers
The reverberation plate EMT 140 was developed by the Institut Fur Rundertechnik and the inventor Dr Walter Kuhl. The EMT 140 was manufactured by EMT since 1956 and covered by world wide patents. This co-operation was followed up in connection with the development of the smaller EMT 240 Reverb Foil for which new patents in Germany and abroad are applied for.
Flat plates under tension have been in use for the past 15 years for the production of reverberation in studio technology. This proven principle has now been developed even further: An electrolytically produced foil of special gold 12 inches square replaces the steel plate used until now. As a result the advantages of this principle are maintained:
The new EMT 240 has only 1/5th the volume of the previous EMT 140 unit and has considerably improved characteristics:
The unit is easy to transport. After transportation no retensioning or recalibration is required.
