Then visit Record Technology Incorporated (RTI) and see how America's best record manufacturer does it. Eavesdrop on a mastering session with Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at famed AcousTech Mastering, the world's only mastering room located within a pressing plant. Back in his listening room, Michael Fremer offers invaluable tips on record storage, record handling, record maintenance, cleaning and collecting.
