The equipment doesn't do everything and has to be coupled with good ears, experience and a sense of taste very developed. An extremely important and often overlooked part is the acoustic treatment of the studio where a very significant effort has been made (studies, acoustic measurements, tests). If you do not hear correctly what happens, you can not make the necessary adjustments on the various equipment.
We also point out that beyond the individual equipment, it is above all the sum of these equipments which form a coherent chain according to our musical sensitivity and the final result expected. After many years of tests of all kinds on a multitude of equipment, the configuration is now stabilized and it is enough to remove a single element of the chain so as not to have the desired result.
New equipment is tested each year in order to be able to re-evaluate the chain compared to the latest products available on the market.
