Designed to bring you closer to the music.

Our mastering studio in Utrecht, The Netherlands was designed to be the ideal home for high-resolution music productions. Engineered from the ground up by AcousticMatters, the studio is created to make mastering possible at the absolute highest quality.

By working together with renowned companies such as KEF, Hegel, Furutech and Merging Technologies, we are able to work at a staggering resolution of 352.8 kHz 32 bits, both in stereo and in super-immersive surround sound.

Loudspeakers by KEF

To ensure the highest possible sound quality, TRPTK works with loudspeakers by British high-end audio manufacturer KEF, the Blade Two. Employing their proprietary Uni-Q drivers, the imaging and phase response is unlike any other loudspeaker or monitor out there.

KEF has been at the forefront of loudspeaker design and technology for 50 years. Its technical expertise and innovative designs grace anything from discreet Custom Install Ci speakers to multi-award winning home theatre systems and class-leading, serious Hi-Fi stereo speakers. From 1961 KEF has been the most forward thinking and technologically advanced Hi-Fi manufacturer in the world.

Amplification by Hegel

Our five KEF Blade Two loudspeakers are powered by powerful amplifiers by Norwegian company Hegel Music Systems. Founded by Bent Holter, Hegel started out as a quest to eliminate harmonic distortion in amplifiers. This resulted in Hegel’s SoundEngine Technology that can be found on the H30 and H4SE amplifiers we use at our studio.

Today Hegel is one of the best established brands in Hi-Fi market, producing integrated, pre and power amplifiers as well as CD players and some of the most modern and sophisticated D/A converters. The SoundEngine Technology was just a start. Today there are six more original technical solutions in Hegel’s portfolio.

Cabling by Furutech

The entire studio is interlinked by cables from Japanese high-end manufacturer Furutech. By using the very best materials, processing techniques and patented technologies, Furutech creates incredibly transparent cabling with virtually zero distortion. We use Furutech custom microphone cables, custom power cables, NanoFlux NCF power cables, LineFlux XLR cables, and their top-of-the-line FS-α36 speaker cable powers our KEF Blade Two loudspeakers.

Furutech’s Pure Transmission Design Concept improves every element of signal transmission, from the AC to the speaker.


Network equipment by JCAT

Working with a network-based recording and mastering system such as the Merging Technologies Hapi / Anubis we work with, you need to make sure you have the proper tools for the job. This is why we work with JCAT’s network equipment. At our studio, we make use of their NET Card FEMTO in our recording and mastering system, as well as their M12 Switch Gold gigabit ethernet switch, to connect all our equipment into the same audio-over-IP network.
