Mastering Studio Equipment

You like gear. I get it. Me too.
We use only high quality analog processing and detailed monitoring in a well treated listening environment. Our room is designed around a Tyler Acoustics Decade D1x monitoring system providing pristine audio reproduction from 25Hz to 20kHz. Supplementing them are a stereo pair of subwoofers for checking critical sub-bass frequencies based on Polk Audio PSW-125's with modified amplifiers.
