Currently we use the Nagra VI and the Nagra Seven. The British music editor SADiE from PrismSound has been our companion for many decades.

Sonosax provides the Highest Dynamic Range at 135dB.
Sonosax (Swiss) supplies mind blowing sound recorders and mic preamplifiers. Here we use the Sonosax SX-R4+ recorder,

Great musicianship and innovative programming sound best in the best halls. We know all of them and have business relationships with all the managers.
