MU1 in surround at RCO House

Just before we shipped the MU1’s to our enthusiastic ‘first customers’, we got a phone call from tonmeister Everett Porter of Polyhymnia International. Everett makes recordings of many concerts of the Amsterdam Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (“RCO”) in the Concertgebouw. The studio of the Concertgebouw is equipped with a surround set of Grimm Audio LS1’s. 

Everett told us that on June 6th an event was planned for 50 members of the ‘Friends of the Concertgebouw Orchestra’ society. It would be a quite special SACD presentation in the brand new rehearsal space of the Concertgebouw Orchestra, ‘RCO House’, of an impressive 2018 recording of Honneger’s ‘Jeanne d’Arc’. And Everett asked us if we could bring a surround set of LS1be plus DMF subs…

Our team took up the challenge to make this event extra unique by developing the surround capabilities of the MU1 in a fast pace. One day before the event it came alive and we hosted a great event, together with our dealer Chattelin from The Hague. We are very proud to show you some nice pictures of the beautiful “Amsterdam” hall of the RCO house and a short video impression too. Please enjoy!
