PHASE ONE RECORDING STUDIOS

We purchased the KRANIS ONE loudspeakers which are more popularly known as simply - the "K1's".

 

Our K1's are the main reference loudspeakers currently being used in the mastering room at Phase One Recording Studios. More than any other speaker system that we have listened to, the K1's present nothing but the truth. Regardless of the source material we choose, the K1's convey more information than any other reference loudspeakers that we have experienced.

 

More information is so vital to the mastering process.  Therefore, owning a pair of K1's was our only option.

 

Tommy West is the Producer for Singer and Songwriter - Anne Murray.  Tommy appreciated just how clear the K1's sound.  This was perhaps one of the main reasons why we were hired to master Anne Murray's recording project. The K1's possess an incredible openness and accuracy.  Even the smallest of flaws in the project's program material were easily identified for correction.

 

Audio Hardware's K1 loudspeakers are truly awesome.

CANNUCK AUDIO MART

The KRANIS Two (K2's) are the best speakers that I have ever encountered. Steve Kranis and the team at Audio Hardware supply high end recording studios with original designed reference systems in Ontario and abroad. They have built custom speakers for many important clients such as:

 

  • Chad and Pharell of the super group "The Neptunes"
  • Phase One Recording Studios
  • Pilchner and Schoustal

 

Top to bottom and side to side, if there is something in the recording, any speaker built by Steve Kranis will present it to you. There is bass content that will crush your chest. The highs sound holographic. They simply float.

 

Audio Hardware produce the best speakers period.

LACQUER CHANNEL

I run the Phil Demetro Mastering operation at Lacquer Channel's studio A. This mastering studio was originally designed by Terry Medwedyk of Group One Acoustics, it's an unbelievably well conceived mastering environment. Since it is modular, I can essentially change the sound of the room with the times and trends. Virtually, there is no limit to how it can sound. I can make it do what I want it to do.

 

Steve Kranis of Audio Hardware Inc. built a pair of K2's as per the dimensions of my mastering studio - which is soffit-mount style. Nine time Grammy Award nominee Brian "Big Bass" Gardner & twice Grammy Award winner Bernie Grundman also use the soffit-mounting style.

 

Given the choice, I would purchase Audio Hardware's K2 loudspeakers again.
