Because "Clear Phase" technology eliminates sound dispersion, music is properly focused in specific areas of the sound stage. In addition, by flattening amplitude and correcting phase characteristics to attain linearity, music will open up for crystal clear listening and reveal nuances in your favorite songs you never noticed before.
