For the first time Munich High End also played host to Can Jam Europe. The event was held just over the road from the MOC and attracted more than 2000 people, proof indeed that the market for headphones and portable audio is continuing to be a healthy one. Here’s a photographic tour of the event which promises to grow in coming years. Congratulations to Juliane Thummel and her team for a job brilliantly done.  More »

IsoTek were launching several new products at the High End Show including the Gemini, Syncro Uni and the Evo3 Nova. Due to another appointment we couldn’t spend too much time at the launch but were very well looked after by Fi Hobden and her team, who even provided us with vegan canapés…much appreciated after a long day walking many miles around the show.

Wilson Audio unveiled a very small loudspeaker at this year’s High End Munich..we are much more used to seeing and hearing their big offerings (and they were represented in plenty of rooms) so it was quite a contrast to find the TuneTot on display. More »

What more is there to add. A bit of a piece on horn loudspeakers we saw at High End in Munich and HIfi Deluxe.  More »

Vivid Audio say that their new KAYA range of loudspeakers is “Vivid in a more accessible format”. You get all the same GIYA technology inside a modern and more room friendly enclosure. The bass drivers have their own re-entrant exponential horn absorber, first found in the Laurence Dickie designed B&W Nautilus loudspeaker in the form of a snail’s shell. More »

According to the internets, Danish people are the happiest nationality in the world, hardly surprising when you look at some of the stunning Hifi brands that come from Denmark…plus Lego, let’s not forget Lego. More »

In the last three years or so we have seen a steady increase in the number of reel to reel players at High End in Munich and it seems that more and more audiophiles are adopting the format despite the relatively small number of new releases on tape. Of course there are a handful of specialist companies releasing product on tape and judging by the number of people carrying tape around at the show, it is been lapped up. And so, without further a do here’s some of the reel to reel tape players we happened across at this year’s High End in Munich. No words, just pictures of some truly beautiful reel to reel players for your delectation. More »

Turntables were absolutely everywhere at this year’s Munich High-End and so here are some of the ones that stood out on our travels around the show…with a handful from Audio-Deluxe thrown in for good measure. We have no way of seeing everything at the shoa nd know we will have missed a good proportion but hope you enjoy all these lovely turntables.  More »

Chord Electronics certainly had the world’s Hifi Press beating a path to their door at High End Munich this year.  Their room was so busy that some had to wait outside, luckily Hifi Pig was in there for a first glimpse of their new products. The full team were there and as always it was a pleasure to see them and great to see the iconic British brand in such high demand at the world’s major international Hifi Show. More »

So, what happens when you give the designers at PMC, a company known for its monitor speakers and strong links with pro audio, complete freedom to design a new, flagship pair of speakers?  Well that’s what we were dying to find out as we made our way into the packed press conference in the PMC room at the MOC Munich on Thursday. We were expecting something pretty special as the new speakers were being hyped as PMC’s most significant launch since the BB5 in the early 90’s. More »
