Hamburg, Germany (October 24, 2017)—Located in Hamburg Altona, near the city’s Reeperbahn, Chefrock Studios is a commercial facility housed on the top floor of an old industrial building, featuring a main control room equipped with an analog Neumann console and a range of analog outboard equipment. Also on-hand are a large recording room, a vocal booth and a client lounge.

While much of the gear is vintage, Chefrock has outfitted all three of its rooms with PMC monitors: IB2S monitors in its main and second control rooms and a pair of AML2 monitors with an SB100 subwoofer in a smaller studio/writing room.

“All our PMCs sound amazing,” says Tilmann Ilse, who set up Chefrock Studios with his production partner Peter Keller. “The first time I heard PMC was many years ago at Galaxy Studios in Belgium and I was blown away by the sound, but I didn’t acquire my own PMCs until 2013 when I bought the AML-2 and SB100 set up that we now have in our writing room. They sound great and were perfect for the room I had at the time.

“When we set up Chefrock Studios, we realized we needed something bigger, especially for the main control room, so we chose wall-mounted IB2s. They have great imaging, no distortion, tonal clarity and sound the same at every level, even low levels. The Advanced Transmission Line makes an additional subwoofer obsolete.”
