From Our Research Team:
A Great-looking Studio Desk!KK Audio's A1 Edit Desk is a perfect complement to your studio, providing dedicated space for all of your essential gear, with a sleek, rounded look that's sure to impress. With the A1 Edit Desk, you have two upper rack shelves with a healthy 4RU spaces apiece, and above them is a perfect home for a pair or two of studio monitors. Between the shelves, you can fit a large 30" flat-panel display - and there are different desk options depending on whether you want a sliding regular keyboard and mouse tray, or a larger tray for your 61- or 88-key MIDI controller. Not only great-looking, the A1 Edit Desk's design has your needs in mind.
KK Audio A1 Edit Desk at a Glance:
Designed for the Modern Studio
KK Audio designed the A1 Edit Desk with an Apple-based Logic/Apogee studio in mind, though the design of the desk is very well-suited for virtually any computer-based studio setup. You have 4RU spaces on each side for your critical gear, and enough space between the shelves for up to a 30" flat-panel widescreen display with space above for your studio monitors. The desk itself has rounded edges, contributing to its stylish all-black look with contrasting light edges.
Convenient Sliding Shelf Options
Not all musicians, producers, and engineers need to have a MIDI keyboard within reach at all times - but if you do, you probably know how frustrating it can be to have to turn away from your computer screen as you program controls or play more expressive passages. The A1 Edit Desk keeps this in mind, and offers three different desk variations, depending on the slide-out option you need. You can choose shelves to accommodate your 61- or 88-key keyboards, or pick the 28" variety for a basic keyboard/mouse setup.

Ultimate Project Studio Desk
by Ben Allen from United StatesGiven the price tag of this monster, you would expect that it would fulfill all of your hopes and dreams for a desk. Well, this desk delivers! Talk about massive, I can fit all of my gear and more on ... read more [+]this desk. The rack spaces are especially great. The finish is quite nice, be careful what you use to clean it, the surface streaks with certain cleaners. Great desk, I would recommend it to anyone who places a high value on ergonomics. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star review is because when the desk was delivered to me, some essential screws were missing, and they weren't the kind that you can get at Lowe's or ACE. But, KK Audio had new screws at my door in two days. close [-]

Great desk for a serious project studio
by Chris from Fairfax, VA USAThis desk is a real joy to sit down to. I was a little worried that the keyboard drawer would get in the way or cause the main work surface to be to high to work comfortably but because of the concave... read more [+] curve of the front edge of the desk, the tray slides back far enough to be out of the way of your legs. The legs are slightly adjustable too. Having instant access to my Roland RD-700GX (55 pounds) whenever I want it and then being able to put it away just as quickly without even getting up from my seat is just awesome.

The surface area of the desk is huge! I have plenty of room for a plethora of gear like compact controllers, an iPad, notebooks and more. Even the monitor pedestals are large enough to accomodate 2 sets of descent sized monitors for comparative listening. Having 8 RU's worth of rack gear always within easy reach right in front of you is a huge plus as well.
The build quality is solid too. (It better be for this price.) It was dropped shipped to my house and my friend and I were able to put it together fairly easily and quickly with a screwdriver and wrench. The directions could've been a little clearer but we managed it without any problems. This is the sort of desk that will last you a very long time.
The only thing I wish this desk included was a cable management system. Be prepared to work out a solution yourself. A simple cable trough along the back is all I need. The price is a little steep too. Drop shipping is an additional $300 flat rate anywhere is the USA. Ouch!
Overall, I'm very happy with this desk. It's not for everyone but it's perfect for the serious project or home studio and a great choice for the musician/engineer. My Sales Engineer, Matt Adams, was helpful as always and I'm very satisfied with this purchase. close [-]
Great desk with a few flaws
by Louis Bellofatto from Danbury, CTFirst the pros. Great design, well engineered and heavy duty. First desk I've owned/seen with a midi controller shelf at the right height for playing and designed to hold the weight of an 88 key contr... read more [+]oller.

Now the cons. The assembly instructions were terrible. This would have been a breeze to assemble if the instructions corresponded to the hardware changes that were made. Only my past assembling experience got me through this hiccup. Some of the pre-drilled holes on the legs didn't line up properly and the valances on the rear were a b**** to get on. (Again, better directions would have helped) Shipping materials were environmentally unfriendly (lots of styrofoam and plastic wrap), but then again, it made it from CA to CT undamaged.
Because of the great design, I'll be able to disassemble and reassemble this unit for moving as many times as necessary. And from the looks of it, it should last me that long. close [-]
