WKNC 88.1 completes renovation with Sonora® – and then does another!

Renovating a broadcast studio is a daunting task – technically, financially, and logistically.  Amidst the chaos, it is possible for certain things to fall through the cracks – even important things.  As the student run station at NC State University began their renovation, they were focused on doing it right, and not letting important elements go unaddressed.

When Jamie Lynn Gilbert, the Associate Director of Student Media and Adviser to WKNC 88.1, contacted Acoustics First they were finishing up an extensive renovation of the HD-2 studio and were looking for some Sonora® Acoustic Panels as the “final touch.”  The end result was the frosting on the cake of this renovation, and the impact, both acoustically and aesthetically, was quite evident – even to their consulting engineer on the project.

So evident, in fact, that just a month later, Jamie was back in contact with Acoustics First® to get nearly identical treatment for their production studio as they completed its renovation as well…

Outstanding Support and Service

We recently purchased some cutting wedges for our studios.  Not only did I immediately get a human voice when I called the 1-888 number on your site, I also got immediately transferred to someone with the knowledge to answer my questions.

We got an outstanding product, outstanding customer service during our purchase and superb customer support after the sale.

So many times in our day, we take time out to contact and complain to someone because we believe they are doing it wrong.  I wanted to take time out today to let you know you guys are doing it right.  Thank you for that.
