Hello, we are Lacquer Channel Mastering. 9 mastering-only engineers with a combined 100+ years of mastering experience. We love listening. We are the only studio in Canada with a vinyl record master lathe.

We offer CD, MFiT, HD and vinyl lacquer mastering. Mastering is all we do and all we've done for the past 40 years. We're Canada's longest running (and best) mastering studio.
