Danelyan Sound Experience (DSE) since November 1977

DSE is a research project in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Theoretical work and practice began in 1977

This project is one of the oldest in the post-Soviet space.


The company developed rapidly after founding and starting laboratory work together with its division — PSL since 1985.

Both projects have much in common and function on the principle of self-government within the framework of a common ideology, each of which controls its internal structure and activities.

The DSE & PSL collections consist of:
six series — DSE
nineteen episodes — PSL

Sample holders from DSE & PSL are members of the company club.

To be able to communicate and receive information, you need patronage (recommendation) from people who are already in the club.

Meetings are held individually, or in small groups of up to three people, which allows you to devote more time and attention to everyone.

Owners of high-precision stereo systems of the highest category of complexity are welcome.

Lectures, seminars, public laboratory work are not practiced!


In 2010, the first musical programs with high quality of sounding were created on technical base, from the selected components of record and reproducing, this is the series of musical programs/releases — Plus 100, Plus 100 Extra, Plus 100 Grail, Plus 100 Grail Longer, Plus 100 Platinum & Plus 100 Prime.

The tape recorders AMPEX, STUDER / REVOX are used in order to create the records.

The professional recording tapes BASF, AMPEX, SONY, 3M are used in the work.

Tape recorder corrector was created on the basis of  TELEFUNKEN EF7, EF11 & AD1 tubes.

Speed of movement of recording tape (38.1cm/s and 76.2cm/s), allows obtaining the high quality sounding.

At present, all records are being tested on the control tract, consisting of harmonized components:
— Headphone — BEYER DT990PRO
— Ears Speaker — STAX SR007
— Magnifier based on the tubes — TELEFUNKEN EF12, EL11 & AD1
— АS on speakers Lowther – DX2, PM2A & PM5A (modified).

Works on creating the record (sound) start from:
1) selection of components for each track:
— CD transports
— interconnecting cables
— recording tape recorders
— recording tapes
— optical media
2) before starting the work on each track, all components of record track are demagnetized.

Only high quality, carefully selected phonograms, which are tested on the harmonized sound systems are accepted to the work.


Danelyan Sound Experience meets 12 key requirements during the sound programs/releases production:

— emotion
— sound image volume (width, depth, rear)
— rounded / spherical sound field
— sound transparency
— harmonics
— resolution
— micro-dynamic
— macro-dynamics
— after-sound effects
— overtones
— AFR – Amplitude frequency response
— PFR – Phase frequency response

Quantity of created musical programs is limited because of long processing chain and time of their record, as well as high coefficient of discarded phonograms (which did not pass the test-selection).

In order to create its works, P.S.L. uses the technical base of D.S.E.
