This is the post production room and, as You can see, there is a Power Harmonizer on the system, from now on, all CDs and LPs produced by STS-Digital will use a Power Harmonizer!
Henk and Marja, a very nice couple, collaborating in their free time for 6moons, one of the leading e-zines for HiFi in the world, have been able make us feel welcome at once.
The reason, of this nervousness was simply that this was the most challenging exam for our products. It was the test wether our products was worth putting on the market or not...
...the result will come sometimes in the future, but something we can already tell You, straight from the beginning the feeling was good. Straight from the beginning both of them Henk & Marja liked the finely structured thinking behind the product and the philosophy supporting it.
Here to see some pictures made there.
Even this year we participated to the analog Audio Forum in Krefeld.
In our room the setup consistsed of:
- Rui Borges - Uno Turntable
- Einstein Audio Components - The Turntable's choice Phono Preamplifier
- Einstein Audio Components - The Tube Preamplifier
- Einstein Audio Components - The Light in the Dark Stereo Power Amplifier
- Blumenhofer Acoustics - Gioia Loudspeakers
- Cammino HP - complete power supply and cabling including its extraordinary Power Harmonizer
On the first day we had a straight setup, it played, but it was not possible to turn up the volume. The people were already satisfied, but we did not. We knew what was reachable with that setup and we reached maximum 60% of that. Not satisfactory. Not at all for us.
In the night from Saturday to Sunday, after a good dinner in a nearby restaurant, we spent half of the night to start from scratch. What a wonder, on the second day, music was playing, finally music was in the room and cheered our ears. Thanks to Marco for the big effort.
Thanks to Hanna as well for taking care about the customers and to Jürgen from HiFi Studio Fuchs for the LPs.
And most of all thank You to the whole AAA Team for the great organization of the event and the great support during the days of the show!!! See You again next year!
Here You can see the pictures.
On the 29th and 30ies of Sepember we have participated to the X-Fi audio Show in Veldhoven. What to say?

We knew it would have played really good, but it was astonishing, it overwhelmed our expectations. Much much more.
The impression was to listen for a real orchestra, complete with all its elements and power. You can not believe what I mean if You do not hear it Yourself.
Take a look at the pictures (here), it is worth it… meanwhile, we will wait for the portrait of the setup, a painting by René Visker of the Ritsart Gallery in Maassluis, The Netherlands
The idea to participate has borne by chance during one of the visit Andrea played to STS-Digital to evaluate the quality of the Groove into Bits CD and discuss some more points about marketing. And this is the question we had: how can we promote the brands in the most effective ways. Then we crosschecked our resources and decided to go again an unconventional way: we have the Blumenhofer Acoustics CD, why not to sell it at the show?
Some dazzling some phone call after we had the space at the fair and the equipment for displaying and playing the CDs.
The electronic of Pro-Ject has been supplied by ATR, the cabling and the power supply harmonizer by Cammino-HP. We used the stand as static display and as point of contact for the people interested in our products. And the interest was big, thanks as well to the Gran Gioia from Blumenhofer Acoustics: a great eye catcher!
During the show we had several visit of old friends and new potential distributors.
The visit of Van den Hul himself, the owner of the famous Van den Hul brand, brought some emotion Mr. Van den Hul appreciated our work.
Mr. Heinz Lichtenegger, director of Project, has been pleased by the quality of our CDs and recordings, and was astonished by the result over their CD player... well they were fed by our power harmonizer!!
As usual we made lot of pictures, you can see them here:
We were in the room of Blumenhofer Acoustics and Einstein, on the 16th floor of the hotel.
We had longer talks with final customer interested in power treatment and perfect system setup.
Volker of Einstein Audio had as usual a really great choice of music.
Blumenhofer was playing the Fun 13, a new budget loudspeaker and the people were surprised by the range and musicality that it has been able to express for the 2 days.
It has been driven by:
- The Source, the gorgeous CD Player of Einstein Audio
- The absolute Tune, the integrated Einstein Amplifier
and on the analog side there was
- Roksan Xerses turntable
- The Turntable Choice, phono preamplifier of Einstein Audio
We, of course contributed with the Power Harmonization, what else ;-)
Here to the pictures
Rarely was our room not full and not visited. The contacts have been several and well promising. The cooperation with Grandinote, Astin Trew, Blumenhofer Acoustics and Acoustic Signature has been fruitful. The results will be fruitful as well.
Here to see some pictures of the event, and here to watch the movie of Andrea Vitali presenting our products
