Krell Industries and Wisseloord Studios are proud to announce that Darcy Proper of Wisseloord Studios won a Grammy award for Best Surround Album 2013. The album is Patricia Barber’s Modern Cool on Premonition Records. Darcy uses 10 Evolution 400e monaural amplifiers, in two sound rooms for her work. We would like to think that our amplifiers played a part in her success.
Darcy on the Evolution 400e amplifiers. . .
“The moment we hooked up the Krells, everything just fell into place – musical detail, imaging, dynamic contrast, frequency response – it was all there. My amplifier / loudspeaker system is the most critical tool in my work. If I can’t trust what I hear coming out of my loudspeakers, then I can’t do justice to an artist’s vision of his or her music. Quite simply, Krell amplification gives our mastering room the accuracy, musicality, and power I need to make music sound its best.”
The Krell 400e mono amplifiers were supplied and installed by Durob Audio BV and Rhapsody Hilversum. First installation was a system of 5 Krell 400e amplifiers and shortly after it was decided Wisseloord could not accept a lower grade of amplification in their second mastering room, so another set of 5 Krell 400e amplifiers was installed.
