Who said CD was dead!? Not us, nor STS Digital. The best-sounding CD ever? Hi-Fi News Album Choice, sound quality 95%, the best ever rating in Hi-Fi News magazine for a CD we believe. Volume One songs by the likes of The Stranglers, Paul Simon and Eva Cassidy.

SOLD OUT AND NOT AVAILABLE

When reviewer Ken Kestler says do whatever you can to get a copy of Groove into Bits Vol. 1 CD back in 2017 for the first series of CDs from LP recordings, you knew its going to be something special. Indeed he gave it a 95% for sound quality, the best-ever rating in Hi-Fi News magazine for a CD we believe.

This second new series of various Artists on CD, produced at the STS Digital studios from vinyl, yes vinyl recordings, using their unique recording processes is re-capturing the gorgeous sounds of the first series (now sadly out of print). Surely a CD everyone should have in their collection.

In an STS Digital CD Recording, you will find:

1. The warm sound, that acoustic instruments possess on their own but is often not captured by sound technicians.
2. Acoustic placing and recognition of the musicians in the recording space.
3. Phase purity of a recording, both the electric phase (good cable/fibre connections etc), and the acoustic phase must be acquired through proper placement of the microphones.
4. Symmetry in the recording; this means always placing the microphones in such a way that on both the left and the right side there’s an equal division of signal, and not placing mono-sport microphones on the extreme left and right.
5. Transparency and clarity in a recording. This does not mean an overly sharp recording, but one of softness in tone and clarity, in which especially the 3-dimensional recording space is being displayed.

Project of STS Digital & Blumenhofer Acoustics. 24Bit MW Coding Process Analogue Remastered Recordings. STS Digital remastered analogue recordings. Recorded with the MW coding process by Fritz de With.

Beautiful Sound Recordings on CD: This CD shows just how wide a range of dynamics the CD medium can achieve and how this offers a sense of scale and reality to the music. This is the most 'dynamic' series of CDs STS Digital has ever produced, with the help of the unique STS Digital MW Coding Process.

The quality of the recordings is stunning, details and micro-details are so clear, that you will be transported to the great outdoors, but without the distant roar of motor vehicles or hum of planes.

Each CD is still in its original shrink wrap from STS Digital the original manufacturer’s seal if applicable has not been removed. See each CD listing above for full details. All data given in the specification are subject to change without prior notice due to technical progress.

STS Digital are one of Europe’s leading audiophile recording and music production studios, still using the analogue (tape) medium wherever possible for the best musical sound and dynamics. Based in Holland, they have been used by several leading component manufacturers such as Marantz, Siltech, AudioQuest and many others to produce CDs of exquisite musical quality. Over the years, they have developed their own unique ‘MW process’ to make their recordings sound as good as possible from studio masters for CD and LP.
