I love Hifi shows and have attended the major and minor shows around the world since the 1970’s, but one show has always eluded me, until this year that is. It was time to pluck up my courage and German language O’level skills to make my way to Munich for the show that everyone is talking about these days. Whilst some major shows around the world have either closed-down, and others can’t decide whether to move to Birmingham or somewhere else, this show stays firmly rooted to the southern German town. And, like a scene from 28 Weeks Later, hundreds and hundreds of determined audio-infected humans marched from all directions with great determination into the venue holding the annual event. It was hard to believe that so many people had such a passion for audio let alone would traverse so many countries to all join-together with one simple wish to see and hear the best in audio, for Hifi is truly still alive and well.

Stuarts High End Munich 2018 wrap up part two. This is my final report from what has been the best Munich High End we have attended. We covered over 50 Km at the show and met some great people, heard some fabulous systems…and some not so. Hope you enjoy.  More »

“I was very lucky to make it over to Munich this year in what is undoubtedly the best show in the calendar. More than ever there were more new manufacturers as well as the traditional names we have heard over the years. Fink Audio are one of the newer names in the street, though their work is probably more well-known than they would let you know. This is a company best known for acoustic evaluation, involved in the creation of loudspeakers for other brands, who hire them because of their expertise, experience and excellent in-house simulation and measurement facilities. Whilst loudspeaker brands might not admit to using their skills, Fink also create speakers under their own name, notably the MW 4 speaker a year ago…” More »

This gig marks a first for me – I confess to having only recently discovered Scott Matthews when I heard, almost by accident, the track ‘Elusive’ (which has won an Ivor Novello songwriting award) from his debut album – which, as it turns out, was released some 12 years ago.  That’s correct – 12 years!! – and I’ve been blissfully unaware!  It turns out that Scott’s been pretty busy in the intervening period, having penned a further five albums, including his recently released ‘The Great Untold’, from which a number of tracks are included in tonight’s set.

Every year we say the same thing, ‘surely the High End Show can’t get any bigger?’, but every year it does! It is now at the point when no human can actually cover every inch of the show…we have tried our very best but I think Super-human powers would be needed for that! However, being very organised and attacking it with military precision meant that we got to see most rooms and exhibits with the aim of bringing you the most comprehensive and interesting coverage of the show…we even managed to get over to the HifiDeluxe show too and bring you CanJam Munich coverage.
