The recently held 5th annual International Surround Conference &Showcase (Beverly Hills) used a pair of the new Grace Design m906 5.1reference monitoring systems for the demonstration and discussion ofaudio program material.

“From a sonic standpoint, our primary goal was to provide ahighly detailed and transparent representation of the 5.1 music mixesbeing presented. Everything in the signal path was carefullyconsidered, including the acoustic space, source playback systems,monitoring control and monitors,” noted Surround Conferencedirector of engineering Curt “Catfish” Hoyt. “It wasalso important that presenters had an easy way to control and managetheir source material. The m906s were invaluable in this regard, asthey provided access to analog and digital source switching, gain anddim control, as well as the ability to solo or mute specific channelsin the surround field. The Grace m906 units turned out to be anindispensable tool to have at the conference and played a big part inits success.”

Grace Design VP of sales and marketing, Doug Wood, added, “TheSurround Conference is widely regarded as the most important event ofits kind during the year, and we’re absolutely thrilled that Curtand his team choose to include our new m906 units as an integral partof the 5.1 monitoring system.”
