Studio 170 is one of the first free recording spaces made available in the State of Connecticut.

It is comprised of two recording spaces: one for audio recording and another for video recording. Studio 170 offers the opportunity to work with quality equipment and to practice getting started with the production process.

Studio 170 was generously funded by the Friends of the Danbury Library.
