Jinjuku - pro gear in mastering studios

edited December 2010 in 2 Channel Audio
Akron and Canton Music Center used PS and D series Crown for a time. Don't know if they still do. I put QSC in at General Tire.

Rainbow and Babies AV suite used D series Crown.

Last time I did an NLE system was 96 at the Canton Music Center. Ended up trading my Amiga 3000 for a Fender Telecaster and amp to one of the engineers there.

There are 1000's of guys doing a/v editing out there.

This was in reference to Jinjuku's assertion that Behringer or whatever was gear used in recording or mastering studios.....to which this is his reply.

The impression that was given was that legit recording studios were using the gear jinjuku is touting.

General Tire? Are you SERIOUS? A TIRE store?

Man, now THAT is funny stuff.

I've read about some studios that use B&W speakers (Abbey Road) and I know that Manley also makes studio gear.....but General Tire? Is that where all those Firestone LP's were cut?

I'm sorry to carry this over, but, dude, MUZAK systems isn't exactly what we were talking about.

Priceless.

General Tire....for all your Tire and Hifi needs.

    Agreed man.

    On a separate note... And to think we are so fortunate as to have someone of his awesome talents and knowlege want to come here and hang out with the likes of us.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-LX701, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    Last time I was in my local Krispy Kreme, I'm pretty sure they were driving their Bose cubes with a Crown amp. Awesome...

    My simple remedy is juju on ignore. Why you guys keep feeding this fellow who obviously, since he joined, just stirs the pot, insults the forum collective etc. He an AA mod who hates Polk's forum and its members.

    Obviously he won't go away so just ignore him.

    I hear ya Tony but this fellow has caused more thread locking, fierce arguing, people getting infractions or bans etc. Of course he doesn't force a member to respond in a rude or rule breaking manner but he sure knows how to bait. I would think being a mod at AA where none of this BS or even opposing viewpoints are tolerated he would be a little more savy and respectful when posting.

    Greg, excellent point!

    I found that particularly amusing as well. All his hubris about how studio's use this entry level pro gear and then he names off MUZAK systems. But then agian, most of us knew he was full of it.

    but everything sounds the same. So whats the point? I mean a saxophone that is worth 500 bucks is going to sound just as good and be as perfect as one that cost 5K, duh you guys nothing really matters as its all in your mind. :rolleyes: and then put it through a system that of course is going to sound the same and record the same because gear doesn't matter...duhhhhhhhhh

    Its just annoying because if someone has to complain about the site so much and blah blah blah why stay? what are you proving in staying? That you hate the site and want to try and "educate" those that waste their money by making them mad and fighting with them?

    Because everyone I know just loves to change over thier ideas for the one that comes across like a know-it-all, I'm Mr. Perfect everyone else is a moron person that complains all the time.

    Wow, I read the end of the old thread and wish I saw what was deleted. Talking about not having a clue.

    Jinjuku, If you don't want to learn something or contribute in a good way and not just argue than please leave. All you are doing is opening your mouth to let us know how uneducated on audio you really are.

    I love how he calls you guys closed minded when you try to explain why Pro Gear isn't about sound quality over quantity.

    Jinju, if you want to bump the house down have a ball but don't expect Crown, Behringer, QSC or Peavey to sound like a Krell, B&K, Rotel, or any other good high end equipment. The clarity just isn't there. And get your ears checked if you think they do. Maybe some Q-tips at least..
    WOW!

    It's obvious JuJu is a cancer to this forum based on his interaction here and relentless bashing of the forum as a collective on other electronics forums. He stirs **** up, reinterprets it and posts it on other forums negatively.

    A real class act.

    $350 2.0 amp/pre put up against that yammy or hk mentioned in that thread vs an src/xls amp. Someone would have taken up the challenge.
