Charlottesville, VA (January 26, 2007)–Two pairs of Klein + Hummel nearfield monitors have been installed at Haunted Hollow Studios, a private facility where the next Dave Matthews Band full-length release is currently in production. A pair of K+H O 300D active three-way reference monitors were set up for use in the B room, which is typically used for songwriting and vocal recording, while a pair of K+H O 110 two-way nearfield monitors were acquired for the main tracking and mix room.

Mark Batson, the band’s producer and a co-songwriter, has been using the K+H O 300 D monitors in his room while working with Matthews. The monitors, which incorporate three separate power amplifiers custom tailored to each driver and produce 112.8dB SPL, have been getting a good workout, Miller reported. “Mark is playing those speakers as loud as we play the bigger speakers in the room. I didn’t think those monitors went THAT loud!”
