About United Mastering

Located in a specially designed acoustic space, formerly the home of JVC’s mastering suite, United’s new studio features Lipinski L700A monitoring with JL Audio Fathom subwoofers, as well as a wide selection of popular headphones and earbuds. For computer playback and recording, the studio utilizes the SADiE system running Prism Sound's latest SADiE 6.1 audio recording and editing software across its mastering platform. Analog processing includes the Pendulum ES-8 Compressor, Dave Hill Titan Compressor/Limiters, SPL Passeq, Manley Massive Passive EQ Mastering Version, and Sontec Mastering EQ.

Acoustic treatment for United’s new suite was provided by Hanson Hsu at DHDI/ZR Acoustics (http://deltahdesign.com).  DHDI have created a phenomenal, truly life-like and realistic acoustic experience, predicating the use of ZR Acoustics in a custom design layout. 

All connection cables were provided by AudioQuest (www.audioquest.com). Using superior low distortion conducting metals, the finest dielectric materials, solid-core conductor technology and innovative design, AudioQuest analog and digital cables provide an ultra low-distortion connection path for the musical signal.
