I think that amp would be a little underpowered. I would look for something in the 50 watt per channel range. Although someone on Amazon said they had good results with a tripath amp of 20 watts per channel using these transducers.
Finding a chair is the real trick. It probably does not actually need to be a zero gravity chair, although that is a nice feature - a regular recliner should also work. The important thing is that it have solid surfaces where you can mount the two transducers. I lucked out and found my chair in a consignment shop nearby a few years ago. Also, I would avoid a chair with super thick cushioning as that would muffle the vibrations.
There also are other brands out there of...
i think I realized why this sounds so musical even when the bass is really strong. Because the bass is coming in on a completely different channel - through my skin and bones instead of through my ears - it does not mess up the sound of the mids and highs. I still easily hear all of the details in the music, and even with relatively a lot of bass, the balance still feels right, as long as I do not get totally carried away and over do it.
Also, the effect is striking...
I also used to have one of these:
It was similar in effect to what the chair does, but obviously did not cover the full body, and somehow was not as engaging or musical. it was cheap and seemed to have a cheap vibration transducer.
There is also another model of cushion that I have not...
Yes, it sounds like the Pulse headset does use vibration transducers to create a similar effect. However, the chair I am using delivers the effect to your whole body instead of just through the earpads of your headphones.
The AuraSound bass transducers do not create sound waves. They vibrate the wood seat and back of the chair and those vibrations are transmitted right into my body without going through the air like the sound from a subwoofer. I have experimented...
It is not really related to the topic of this thread, but the biofeedback system that runs the flashing lights is this one:
Or for a much cheaper way of experiencing the flashing lights, you can just use a mind machine like the ones sold here:
Just got a used DX90 (my second one) and am loving it, especially when I feed my vibration transducer equipped zero-gravity chair as described here:
What if you could have full body sound and effectively limitless bass even with headphones? Maybe you can.
Others on here have mentioned the AuraSound bass transducers which are sometimes used in home theater systems to give tactile bass effects to movie sound tracks and the like (http://www.amazon.com/AuraSound-AST-2B-4-Shaker-Tactile-Transducer/dp/B0002ZPTBI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425083431&sr=8-1&keywords=aurasound). And years ago, I had a homemade massage table...
Success!!!! My DX90 is back. Thank you for the info. I don't know how people who are not very computer literate survive in this world anymore, but it sure helps also to have people that can point you in the right direction when you hit a major snag.
Again, thank you.
And by the way, it sounds awesome with the T51p.
