“...the orchestra and the theater both sounded transformed; the sound quality was the main topic of conversation.[Akustiks’] new shell...gave the orchestra a luster, balance, and bloom that was startling to regular concertgoers. The bass strings gained weight, the winds and violins a burnished luster...”

"I'm still pinching myself every few minutes. The Mead Theater has turned out to be everything we dreamed it would be —and more. The sound is warm and resonant but also clear and present. That makes it a perfect hall for the glistening sonoroties of the French impressionists."

“It seemed last night as if a new era had dawned for the Toledo Symphony. The orchestra has never sounded better. Suspended above the stage were newly installed rectangular sound reflectors. Their effect on last night’s overall tone quality was wonderfully positive. Gone was the uneven projection and often tinny timbre. Last night the sound was firm, yet warm; rich, et sufficiently transparent. Individual voices could easily be distinguished within the wind and brass sections. Strings soared. As an added visual bonus, the reflectors, and the golden ambiance they lend to the stage lighting, are attractive as well.”
