GIK ACOUSTICS & LONGDOG AUDIO AWARDED BEST ROOM BY HIFI PIG

Longdog Audio had for me the best sounding room at the show. Their room again like Fanthorpes was generously festooned with GIK panels of Bradford and I am sure these helped no end to control the issues of a smallish hotel room. Source was a Garrard 301 with a rather magnificent SME 3009 12″ arm and unknown cartridge through a Music First Audio reference pre amp and LDA P6 mono blocks and a pair of Graham Audio LS5/9A speakers. The album being played was The Mighty Sam Maclain’s Give it up for love. It sounded superb and so real. Well done Longdog Audio.”

GIK Acoustics In Room 121 at the Styl:us Vinyl Show

We were thrilled to offer Styl:us attendees a look at the new Impression Series panels. The Impression Series is ideal for creating an even balance of low end absorption without losing high frequency presence. The Impression Series features beautifully decorative, semi-reflective rigid plates attached to absorptive acoustic panels and bass traps. The rigid plate not only gives the panel a stylish appearance but also helps reflect/scatter high frequency content in your room giving the proper balance needed.

In addition to items from our Impression and Alpha Series, we also displayed our ever-popular Tri-Trap Corner Bass Traps, ArtPanels, and FreeStand Acoustic Panels.
