Toshiba R32 console is sound investment

UK: Audio engineers at hi-fi specialist Sonority Design have installed an ultra-low noise R32-based Toshiba air conditioning system to ensure the best possible listening environment for its customers. 

The Brierley Hill-based audio company chose Toshiba’s bi-flow RAS console split system with its sound pressure range of just 31-46dB(A). 

“Our client specialises in very high-end hi-fi systems, which require the lowest possible ambient noise to preserve outstanding audio reproduction,” explained Nigel Kuscher, managing director of Ref-Sol, which installed the Toshiba system. “They established that the Toshiba bi-flow system was one of the quietest available, and would deliver the comfortable environment needed for customers to audition equipment without detracting from the audio experience.”

The design of the Toshiba bi-flow system allows air discharge from the top and bottom of the unit. According to Toshiba, this reduces turbulence and associated sound emissions. It also employs the latest digital hybrid inverter technology to precisely match output to demand, further reducing sound levels, and is equipped with a fine-filter system to ensure optimal indoor air quality.

The Sonority Design system delivers a total of 7.2kW of cooling and has an energy label rating of A++. Indoor units are Toshiba’s console model RAS-B18UFV-E1, and the outdoor unit is model RA3M27S3AV-E.
