    The location of the Studio is circled on this present day map. It took me about an hour to figure out where it was (finally ran across the document below). If you Google the island you can zoom right in and see the pool.

    It is interesting that when a studio, or a casino closes down, only the drivers are removed, but the 4350/4355 cabinets are left behind. I understand they are heavy, but they do are valuable, especially packing lots of history.

    There is a photo out there that shows the drivers in the right hand monitor still mounted except for the 2202. Someone's vacation photos that I can't find right now.

    Found it, lol:

    There's another world famous recording studio from the 70s and 80s just North of Montreal that is now abandoned and left to rot. Andre Perry's Studio in Morin Height.

    And it has been vandalized in 2015

    I am curious. How do you tell the difference once the drivers are removed?

    4350's have six ports, 4355's have two.

    If we knew what the hell we were doing, we wouldn't call it research would we.
