GIK Acoustics is proud of the reputation we’ve built within the industry. Here are a few links to GIK Acoustics product reviews and features from magazines, websites and forums.
The Headliner team has been busy putting together a unique recording space above an ancient inn in the heart of St. Albans which dates back to 1420 – possibly the oldest building to house a professional recording studio. Headliner contributor Paul Watson says, “The guys at GIK Acoustics helped us transform what was an empty, reflective space, into a great sounding room.” READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE.
Headliner is a high value content collective which supports the creative community of artists, music producers, touring and performing arts professionals, and emerging talent.
Recording Magazine‘s Paul Vnuk reviewed the Impression Series in the November 2017 issue. Our Mod Geometric design also graced the cover. As Paul says, “Room treatment… is equally if not more important than gear purchases.” Read the full review – complete with photos – here.
Strother Bullins’ latest Studio Showcase features Marsh Mastering and mastering engineer Stephen Marsh who has moved multiple times into a variety of rooms, using surface-mount acoustic treatments from GIK Acoustics to provide consistency.
Writer and audiophile Gary Beard finally took the first steps to treat his listening room. He started off slowly with a small investment of a few Impression Series panels. The results blew him away. Read his full review here.
Hifi Pig Magazine‘s aim is to review and report on the best in hifi. Stuart and Linette Smith installed our bass traps, acoustic panels and diffusors and presented GIK “an OUTSTANDING PRODUCT Award.” Stuart concludes, “… all I can say is you need to hear what these relatively inexpensive panels can do. Anyone who is not convinced is either fooling themselves for whatever reason or needs to take themselves to the ear-doctor without passing go and without collecting their £200.”
We provided a “Tip Jar” article to Music Connection Magazine called “HOW TO MAKE A RECORDING/MIXING STUDIO SOUND LIKE A MILLION DOLLAR ROOM.” Starting with positioning & setup and then examining where to place room treatments, there is no better impact on the sound in your space than proper acoustic treatment.
Rick LaFaver reviewed our 4A Alpha Panels for EnjoyTheMusic.com calling them, “One of the best values to treating any good listening room.”
Our Room Kit #3 was awarded one of HiFi+ Magazine’s 2016 Accessory of the Year. Regarding the effectiveness of our products, the editors say, “You will be surprised at how fine your system will sound, no matter how humble or exotic that system might be!”
We worked with Alex Holmes to set up and treat his new studio using GIK Acoustics 244 Bass Traps, Monster Bass Traps, and Soffit Bass Traps. Alex says, “… the sonic results were dramatic. My partner, who is always complaining that he can’t feel the bass, was especially happy, as it now felt like the sub-frequencies has shifted focus from the room’s extremities to its centre.”
We worked with Steve La Cerra to transform a spare room into a usable mix room using GIK Acoustics 244 Bass Traps, FreeStand Acoustic Panels, FreeStand Bass Traps, and Tri-Trap Corner Bass Traps. As Steve says, “… many people ignore this fact of life: the room is the most important component in the monitoring chain.”
GIK Acoustics 244 Bass Traps with FlexRange Technology were used in a multi-use media room.
