The brainchild of producer Phil Ramone, with help from Peter Chaikin (Harmon Pro Group), John Eargle, George Augspurger and Leslie Lewis, the Recording Academy's L.A. headquarters boasts a new 5.1 system in its boardroom. The install comprises soffit-mounted JBL Pro LSR6332 monitors, two LSR6312SP subs with JBL RMC, three Crown Reference 1 power amps, surround processing via Lexicon MC12 and graphic room EQ with JBL Synthesis systems.

When the installation was complete and the room was tuned, the crew gathered for the final listening test. “The room sounds superb!” Chaikin enthused. “Given the high profile of the Grammy Awards and the supreme level of talent that would be listening to music in the room, we viewed the system as a reference test for our professional and consumer components.”
