Recently opened Crystalphonic Recording Studios (Charlottesville, Virg.) is a multiroom facility equipped with top-of-the-line digital and analog technologies, including six Grace Design model 901 Reference Headphone Amplifiers and a Model 201 2-channel microphone preamp.

Each room includes a Grace Model 901, which allows producers, engineers and musicians with reference-quality stereo monitoring of analog or digital tracks via headphones. Two additional units are available as “floaters” for clients to use as needed. A Model 201 preamp is also available to cut tracks in Studio A.

“The model 901 has become an integral part of the creative process here, whether it’s during the recording, mixing or mastering stages,” said Crystalphonic owner Kevin McNoldy. “Everyone who hears their mix through the Model 901 says the same thing: a collective 'wow' as their music is revealed with incredible sonic detail and resolution. The Model 901 has become something of a 'desert island' piece: We simply won’t work without it.”
