Harrison 950M Console
The 950m from Harrison (priced per configuration) is geared to meet the unique requirements of a DAW-based studio. It provides all features necessary to link professionals on both sides of the control room window. The console incorporates a massive linear power supply, robust ground-plane design, all balanced connections, gold-plated switches, through-hole components and high-headroom summing buses. It comes in three standard sizes: 12, 16 and 24-channel frames. There are two master buses: 1 “32-Series”-style transformer-balanced output, and one “Series 12”-style electroncially balanced output. Other features include two studio feeds, talkback, oscillator, headphone feeds, manual PCB layout, gold-plated switches, conductive plastic potentiometers and summing buses carried via PCBs (no ribbon cable summing buses).

KRK KNS Series Headphones
Voiced to remain true to the character of KRK’s studio monitors, the KNS6400 ($199) and KNS8400 ($249) Series professional headphones use the latest in acoustic memory-foam technology, promising top performance in reproduction and isolation. Features include high-efficiency neodymium drivers; 8.2-foot, single-sided straight cable with oxygen-free copper wires; and adjustable, foldable driver enclosures provide comfort and portability. The ¼-inch plug can be unscrewed to reveal an 1/8-inch plug for laptops and portable media players; the cable, head and ear cushions are replaceable to ensure product longevity. Both come with a soft carrying case embossed with the KRK logo for travel or storage when not in use.

Neumann KH 810 Subwoofer
The KH 810 ($TBA) from Neumann is a 7.1 High-Definition Bass Management™ system meant to team up with the KH 120 near-field two-way monitor. It can be used either as a subwoofer dedicated to reproducing the LFE channel or as a means of providing LF extension with an increased maximum SPL. The integrated 7.1 High Definition Bass Manager™ is compatible with all formats, from mono to the latest 7.1 high-definition systems. Eight electronically balanced analog XLR inputs ensure flexible interconnectivity. Four-mode LFE channel processing guarantees maximum compatibility across all formats, while fourth-order crossovers and flexible acoustic controls allow seamless system integration. Built-in volume control permits centralized system adjustment of replay levels, independent of the source. The electronics can be located remotely to reduce cabling and to allow the cabinet to be mounted flush to a wall.

CEDAR Cambridge Version 7
Based on the latest CEDAR Cambridge Series III hardware, Version 7 (free upgrade for Cambridge owners) boasts a hugely improved file-processing system; a powerful new module, Respeed; a unique new de-click algorithm, Manual Declick “B”; the introduction of Reporting; and dozens of improvements to existing modules, including Retouch, DNS, NR-4 and NR-5, the Adaptive Limiter and Vintage Decrackle. Other improvements include a Spectrogram view to augment the existing Waveform view, improved transport controls, improved channel mapping, the ability to perform transparent sample rate conversion while saving files, and the introduction of user-definable hot-keys, which allow operators to control the system from a keyboard and from devices such as foot pedals that map to the key commands.
