    I don't know them... have they done all that stuff? Bowie and Simply Red?

    I think that the site is a little pink, what do you think?
    But then again some might say that mine is too red? :lol:

    What attracts you on their site? the e-mastering thing? prices? or maybe the pictures?

    "They certainly are well-stocked..."
    Yeah John... but they use crappy cables and patcbays :lol:
    And crappy speakers too! :lol:

    But maybe they are good? who knows?
    You can try them out and give us your thougts :D

    I wonder what kind of amps, cables and speakers were used at EMI's Abbey Road studio to master all the Beatles vinyl? Anyone know? I'll bet it wasn't a lot of that audiophile stuff everyone raves about ..

    Kurt,
    If you knew your history you would know that in the 60'ties commercialism was just getting started and all the side effects we know of today had not really begun at the time.

    Early Beatles recordings sound the way they do because they actually used some of the best equipment at the time.

    My note about the speakers and cables was also a joke you know? I put laughing smileys after my comments... but now i see that they don't laugh anymore, maybe you should fix that kurt?

    My security prefs tend to goof that up once in a while...

    Well at abbey road, they were using the best equipment money could buy and most of it was custom made. Does that qualify as Audiophile? I think so. How much would it cost to outfit a studio today with that gear?

    e-mastering does look like a nice room. Let us know if you give them a try.

    i think u'll find that they used the original EMI desk which has very musical eq on it (primarily designed to centre on freqencies common to orchestral instruments such as violins, violas etc). With regards to outboard i would guess they would have used pultecs and fairchilds or something equivalent...but tis only a guess!
    They also had a strict rule of only mastering up to 0db otherwise you were out.....how things have changed eh? Now people are mastering up to ridiculous levels like +14db. I think most mastering engineers nowadays dispare at the loudness they have to achieve for record companies...dynamics has gone out the window.
