IMS Technologies will be raffling a pair of Christopher CS-1 referencing speakers at the Winter NAMM Show. Christopher Speakers feature internal transmission line chambers, ultra-high-end drivers and custom high frequency attenuators that fine tune the “sound stage” of the listening area. They are also made in the USA and received a glowing review from Downbeat magazine earlier this year.
These are also the speakers that rock icon Mark Slaughter used to record and mix his latest critically acclaimed CD “Halfway There,” which so far has reached #12 on the Billboard charts. Slaughter obtained a pair of the speakers along with a copy of “Giving Shelter,” IMS Technologies’ cancer fundraiser CD that was mixed on the same speakers. In Slaughter’s own words, “[I] was so blown away by the quality and clarity of these speakers and how great the CD sounded that I felt compelled to not only endorse them, but also to use them in my own studio.”
IMS’ Jeff Millar-Sax stated that “having such a well respected musician as Mark not only using these speakers, but also generously providing his studio as a listening room for the CS-1’s, will definitely help spread the word. Not only is Mark a singular talent who is a ‘musician’s musician,’ but he’s also one of the most decent people I’ve had the pleasure to know.”
Joshua Eagan, Christopher Speakers’ director of sales and artist development, who’s drumming can be heard on “Halfway There,” is providing the free pair of speakers. “We’re really excited to have a listening room in Mark’s Nashville studio. It gives us a home in an iconic music city where many discerning producers, engineers, artists and hi-end audiophiles may go to experience these amazing speakers,” Eagan commented.
