The 1,661-seater hall is located in the main KBS complex at Yeouido to the southwest of Seoul, Korea. The hall hosts not only music events but is the location for major awards ceremonies throughout the year.

The hall's recording facilities have traditionally been based around an SSL 9000 K super analog console and the quality of the audio conversion has been an important factor. The installation of the three Merging Technologies Horus units is the result of testing by Ko Moon Ahn and Lee Dong Hoon, the main engineering team from the hall.

As is often the case, the workflow pattern is gradually changing to doing more of the mixdowns in Pyramix. "We really appreciate the improvements in A/D and D/A conversion with Horus. This, combined with Pyramix, is the ideal solution for the recordings we make in the KBS Hall," commented Ko Moon Ahn.

KBS is the major broadcaster for South Korea and started radio broadcasting back in 1927 with television joining in 1961. There are now three television channels, seven radio channels and four DMB services plus local and international stations. Syncfish, Merging Technologies' distributor for South Korea and the supplier of a variety of audio equipment to KBS, provided the Merging equipment.
