The newly transformed SSL Engine Room at Miloco Studios has been supplied with a LavryGold AD122-96 MKIII A-D Converter by KMR Audio. Converting analogue signals to a 24-bit digital audio data stream, the AD122-96 MKIII was specified after a series of listening tests facilitated by KMR Audio, during which the LavryGold emerged as the clear winner.
Pete Hofmann (pictured), mix engineer and technical director at Miloco studios, commented: “KMR offer an exceptional level of customer service. Not only are they very knowledgeable but they have also been very helpful in this instance, arranging for us to have several A/D converters over a long period of time which allowed us, and our regular mix engineer clients, to make an informed choice.
“I look forward to working with KMR Audio closely in the future as they are always happy to loan us the latest equipment which allows us to remain at the cutting edge of music production.”
KMR sales manager Stefan Pope added: “Converters are a hot topic. We’re regularly contacted to arrange converter shootouts, either in our listening room or in the client’s studio. We have to say, it’s not uncommon for the LavryGold to come out on top…”
