To accurately monitor the ultrahigh resolution of DSD technology, Telarc has installed a multichannel monitor system from ATC at its Cleveland facility and has taken delivery of a portable ATC 5.1 system for monitoring while recording on location.
"We feel like we're finally hearing the detail of our work for the first time," said Telarc president Bob Woods. "As a professional studio product, we've never encountered anything quite like it. You want something that's accurate, but to have a system that can handle all types of musical programming equally well is downright remarkable."
The installed system consists of five ATC SCM150A active three-way speakers and two 12-inch, 1,000-watt Sub1/12 Pro subwoofers. Five ATC SCM20ASL two-way near-field monitors and a 15-inch SCM0.1 subwoofer provide accurate monitoring for location recording. Telarc recording engineer Michael Bishop said that he plans on using the SCM150s for front-left and front-right monitoring and SCM20s for center and surrounds on location.
