Powerful and punchy masters with dynamics and drama intact ... [he] can usually articulate what I want better than I can. I can't recommend him enough.'

A recent press release states "24-96's incredible design achieves perfect acoustic linearity, thanks to the work of famed acousticians Michel Schreiber and Jochen Veith (who recently designed Ronald Prent’s new Wisseloord Studios complex in The Netherlands and has done acoustic design for Max Martin, Coldplay and many more). Due to the high standard of attention to detail, 24-96 produces an extremely clear sound which helps Robin master hit after hit.
