We are getting very excited about the Audio Video Show Warsaw 2018, which kicks off on Friday 16th November and runs all weekend. It’s the second biggest European show after High End Munich and is packed full off some amazing Hifi, some of which you will not find elsewhere. More »

I love hifi shows. Time to see old friends and new equipment, and of course some old favourites, too. It gave me the chance to meet both new faces and products at a new location for me, at a time when this hitherto fairly unknown show now wants to turn up the volume and make it really international and worthy of your trip on Ryanair. This is not a new show, having begun in 1992, and this year has been rebranded as the ‘Copenhagen High End Show’, emphasising the top-end brands manufactured in Scandinavian countries, having originally been known as the ‘HiFi and Surround Show’.  Starting modestly in a hotel the other side of Copenhagen, the capital and most populated city on the eastern coast of the island of Zealand, the event this year was the fifth time at the Clarion Hotel, conveniently located at the airport, meaning easy connectivity for those coming in via the airport or metro. For the previous eight years the show was at the Marriott in Copenhagen, around 25 minutes away by train away. Scandinavia should be really taken seriously for what they offer the audiophile and not just from majors such as Dynaudio, Gryphon, Dali and Densen. I guess with the prevalent winds and snow keeping the Danes sat indoors keeping warm for much of the year they really do need a good hi-fi system to keep them entertained.   More »

Festival of Sound, or Festival of Indulgence as we had called it after it changed its name from ‘Indulgence’ after the last two shows, could be seen to have taken a bit of a risk with the name change. We thought it was quite a brave move as the indulgence brand had become established…would this rebrand alienate the show from the public?  In a word, no.  More »

For this mini show report of the recent Audio Show at Leamington Spa, Hifi Pig Reader Sean Cooke takes the reigns for Hifi Pig. Apologies for the quality of photographs but on returning from the show Sean realised there had been a fault with his DSLR and so most of these are from a smartphone.  More »

The Festival Of Sound In London’s Hammersmith opens its doors to the public tomorrow, continuing throughout the weekend, and so Hifi Pig thought we would have a chat with Phil Hansen, one of the show’s key organisers and ask him what is in store for visitors to this year’s Festival Of Sound.

Talking of Hifi shows, places like Las Vegas, Munich, London and Bristol spring quickly to mind. I have to admit, though, that I had not heard of the Copenhagen show until I was asked to attend it in 2018. Yet Denmark itself is quite a big name in the Hifi manufacturing world.  Not only are there big names we all know such as Ortofon, Bang and Olufsen and Scandyna, but today Denmark plays a significant contribution to the market place with the major contingent including Copland, Dynaudio, Dali, Gryphon, Lyngdorf Audio, Densen, Vitus Audio, Gamut and Tangent, to name just a few. Add to that companies in the whole of Scandinavia and you can see just what a large effect this part of the world has played in the development of the audio and video industries. More »

CanJam London 2018 was held at the prestigious Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster Bridge this year, just over the River from the Houses of Parliament. The hotel itself was very luxurious and a great setting for consumers, companies, designers and music lovers from the U.K, U.S, Canada, Japan, Singapore and many other countries to come together for this event.

The North West Audio Show, or Cranage, as it is affectionately named after its location, has been growing steadily over the past few years.  From a bijou show with mainly local dealers and distributors to a major event on the international calendar. 2018 was the year when it all came together.  With exhibitors now flying in from as far away as Hong Kong and Israel, it had a truly cosmopolitan feeling. More »

Now in its fifth year the North West Audio Show has risen to be what I consider to be the best show that we attend and we are phenomenally happy to be their media partners. This year the show, held at the Devere Cranage Estate in Cheshire, had an amazing buzz going on social media in the weeks running up the show and subsequently turnout was fabulous – even the Sunday when we expected a lull because of England having a game on in the World Cup. The vibe at this show is like no other you will experience and there were people saying it felt less like a Hifi event and more like a great big family party that just happened to have some great Hifi systems playing. Add to this that the show is free, there is loads of free parking AND you get welcomed at the entrance by Kris’s (the organiser) fantastic team of helpers with a glass of fizz and you will understand why we are so happy to be media partners. It was also great to see other media at the show with Alan Sircom and Paul Messenger both in attendance. NEXT YEAR’S SHOW IS – Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June 2019 at De Vere Cranage estate, in Cheshire.  More »
