STS Digital Tango Extremo
A very dynamic and musical live recording – 5 excellent musicians playing well known music in tango style.
Sound Engineers notes:
Tango Extremo is really an extremo recording, if I may use the title from the LP in this way. First of all it is live and it has an extreme dynamic range. Fast and furious it sounds, more than live I would say!
That makes this album a must have for everybody who loves great music and of course very exciting recordings. From the UK was used the 8 channel Audio Developments mixer AD 255 and from the US the 88.2-24bit, 24 channel Alesis. Siltech microphone cables and interlinks were used throughout the recording. A single Schoeps MK21 on the bass, two Schoeps MK21 on the piano, one Schoeps MK21 on the violin and one Schoeps MK21 on the saxophone and accordion. For ambiance two LCM-3 microphones designed by a Dutch company Mazenier Electronics were used.
The recording of this LP was possible due to a contribution from Hans Kortenbach, manufacturer of Musical Affairs loudspeakers, Cees Ruijtenberg, manufacturer of Metrum Acoustics DA convertors and headphone amplifiers and Frens Mazenier by providing his microphones.
We hope that this LP album will soon become an icon on every high end analogue turntable. Don’t let yourself be put off knowing this is a digital recording, just give it a chance. I like it very much, I hope you will like it too.

OUR RECORDING PHILOSOPHY
STS get a lot of e-mails from audio fans from all over the world and they ask always the same question: what is your motivation to make such beautiful recordings and mastering, well here we go.
The first reason is that they like music very much, it is a wonderful way to express feelings and communicate with other people on a same level.
They also like the sound of musical instruments, played in fine acoustic surroundings, they sound so pure and warm.
Unfortunately most CD, LP and Reel to Reel tapes are bad recorded, with a harsh sound to close and without ambience.
For this reason they started with STS Digital twenty years ago to do something totally different and the results are our recordings with a fine selection and series like: Extended Dynamic Experience, Celebrate the Art & Spirit of music, Siltech Test Demo CD, The Absolute Sound Reference lots of LP’s and Reel to Reel tapes.
They give in these series and products every musical instrument the space they need, so the original sound can be developed her typical sound of various instruments with the help of good ambience.
A sax will sound like a sax and not like a clarinet and a piano sounds like a piano and not a keyboard.
Now you understand how important it is to record music in a good sounding concert room or church and not in a dry studio with close miking.
To get the best out of their microphones Schoeps they use golden/silver cables from Siltech/copper cables from Van den Hul and they clean up AC currency with their own developed 6 pack AC Power Block.
They use their ears by first listening in the concert room or church where an orchestra/band/singers etc. is playing for some time and then go back to their recording room to get the sound, what we first heard in the concert room/church, as natural as possible.
It is usual dictated by placing the microphones not to close, they also put a lot of effort in mixing and mastering the recordings, they guard the whole recording process with their ears like a wolf in the night.
Every step they check the results and compare the process with the original recordings.
If you listen to our productions remember that they did their out most best to get for you all the benefits of our effort to go far beyond the best of the best.
