The 4π multidetector γ-ray spectrometer at the Holifield Heavy-ion Research Facility (HH IRF) is described in some detail. The following important features of this spectrometer are discussed : (a) the geometric arrangement, (b) the actual performance of the individual detector elements, (c) the associated electronics and data acquisition system, and (d) the response of the system to input γ-cascades including the effect of crystal-to-crystal scattering and the response to neutrons. The first few experiments to be performed are briefly described.
