What equipment would a recording studio builder choose for their own demonstration studio?
An interesting question and in one case there is an answer.
According to an announcement, “three 1237 three-way main monitors as the LCR solution, four 8331 coaxial three-ways for surrounds, four 8330 two-ways for the height channels” along with a 7380 subwoofer, were installed. Smart Studio designed the room to be Dolby Atmos 7.1.4-compatible to match what it considers to be the direction of the industry.
Smart Studio’s Managing Director and Senior Designer Jim Dunne said, “Genelec are a very trusted brand. Everyone knows them — and everybody we know is using them — so we knew if we had Genelec in here, we would have a yardstick that people would be very comfortable with.”
He concluded, “The super-smooth low-end response and spatial accuracy of the system has really elevated this space.”
