Saturday afternoon was time to pop over to the Marriott for the Hifi Deluxe Show. This runs in the afternoons/evenings on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the same time as the High End Show. With the difficulty in getting rooms at the MOC it is inevitable that a sideshow happens and you do find some interesting brands over here. There is also a shuttle bus between the two shows making it easy to get over there. Here we cover La Rosita, Knif Rauman, Viva Audio, Jeff Rowland, Fyne Audio, Cary Audio, Audio Exklusiv, Lumiks and Audio Signal Projects, Rohm,  Rike Audio, Martion and Tonmechanik Berlin, Holton Audio, Camerton Audio, Q-Tron Audio and Horn-Kultur, SottoVoce, SeaWave Acoustics, Fein Audio, AGD Productions and Extreme Audio, 432 Evo, Malvalve and MrSpeakers, Grandinote, SoundKaos and Bakoon, Aretai, Klimo and Brodmann, Totaldac and AudionoteUK.

Saturday saw me flying solo at the High End Munich 2019 Hifi Show. As an intrepid Hifi Journalist, I grabbed my camera and made my way up to the top floor of the show, 4.2, to pick up from where we had left off the previous day. This top floor is always one of the best areas of the show, the brands often keep the same room year on year, so it’s easy to orientate yourself and see everything. The same brands, however, doesn’t mean the same gear every year…I was treated to some stunning rooms and some fab surprises.  There is also a strong French contingent up there so it was nice to have a break from my limited German language skills and ‘parlé Francaise’ a little.
