    Many post-production facilities have just started preparing for the move to immersive sound, but Zach Seivers at SNAPSOUND has already finished his room's new Dolby Atmos set-up. That makes SNAPSOUND one of only 13 facilities in the United States to be outfitted for Dolby Atmos and receive official Home Entertainment Studio Certification from the audio company. The journey to SNAPSOUND's Dolby Atmos set-up took place over several months near the end of 2019.

  8. AMS Revives Classic RMX16 Reverb For 500 Series Racks

    AMS Revives Classic RMX16 Reverb For 500 Series Racks
    When talking about classic pieces of gear heard on hit records, the AMS RMX16 has easily earned its spot at the table. The reverb microprocessor became a must-use piece of gear in the 1980s and has gone on to become one of the most revered reverberation units ever. Just ahead of the 2020 NAMM Show, AMS has announced that they’re giving the classic unit the 500 series treatment with a new version of the RMX16. While the original units were coveted and sonically magical, they also carried a massive price tag and thus were fairly rare and unattainable. With this new offering in 500 series form from AMS, a new generation of engineers will be able to use this reverb classic in their 500 Series rack for much less. The RMX16 500 series module is set to carry a price tag of just $1295, making its cost almost as small as its new, compact footprint. Continue reading →

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
