Soundville Studios, JMF Audio's power amplification
recognition, 30th anniversary
René Zingg, passionate sound
engineer and music lover, has been heading Soundville Studios, Lucerne,
Switzerland, since 1980. A facility that later upgraded to a Tom Hidley designed recording
studio. The passion
for audio pushed René to evaluate the innovative JMF Audio power
amplification technology. René was supposed to own the most neutral
monitoring system, employing the most expensive power amplifiers (made in
Switzerland). Then he realized that the French power amplifiers delivered a
sound in the control room that was more faithful to the live music played by
the musicians behind the glass wall... Tom Hidley got contacted.
Nashville would be the next step... It was in 1988.
JMF Audio's co-owner/engineer returned to the place where the brand got propelled onto the
(JMF Audio) with René Zingg (Soundville) in the control room of Studio
where the JMF Audio power
amplification technology was evaluated 30 years ago...
Today's JMF Audio HQS 1050, HQS
6002, HQS 7001, HQS 9001 power amplifiers are still based on the same
principles that made the legend. Some of the key components employed even
remain the exact same.
This 30th anniversary coincides with the Revision F of the present power amplifiers'
line. An evolution in the details toward the natural, ample and faithful
rendering, heart of JMF Audio. A statement, inherited from the highly
acclaimed PRS 1.5 preamplifier Revision D, which made the audiophiles more
enthusiasts than ever at the last Munich High-End Audio presentation. (see

MKIII Studer analog
In 1988, the Soundville Studios
were a two-studio 48 track enabled facility, recording analog or
digital with the famed Studer reel to reel desks. The studio has always been
world-class, with equal services and equipment to the most regarded American giants.
Always ahead, René reported that Soundville Studios were later the first client of the hard-drive
based Pyramix production solutions.

and 2L (Lindberg Lyd. Studios) in Norway, with over 30 nominations for the Grammy
Awards, have used the same DAW (digital audio workstation) and powered the
recording equipment through
the PCD302 (one of the latest JMF Audio products) to produce state of the
art Blu-ray Pure
