High End Munich 2018 (Date: 10th to 13th of May 2018)
80939 München, Germany
Almost every audio brand from all over the world will be here. Certainly too much to see in one day, so at least check your 10 favorite rooms at Munich Audio Show. Some of my top 10 audio brands al listed below. Organized bij the Highend Society, exhibiting the latest and the best HiFi systems.
Hifideluxe (Date: 10th to 12th May 2018)
Marriott Hotel München
Berliner Straße 93
You’ll find some very special audio brands in the beautiful Marriott Hotel in Munich. The atmosphere feels like a VIP treatment, while enjoying top of the bill sound in every room.
And not a lot of people realize that it’s FREE admittance at this Munich Audio Show. No ticket needed.
From what I understand, Hifideluxe is at a walking distance from High End Munich at the MOC, and they even provide free shuttles.
It will be hard to pick the top 10 audio brands at the Hifideluxe at the Marriott in Munich…
CANJAM MUNICH (Date: 11th to 13th May 2018)
Kohlebunker (next to High End / MOC)
What is the difference between CanJam Europe and CanJam Global?
Well, they both share a list of the nicest headphone brands and all sorts of personal audio. But from what I understand, it’s a completely different organization.
CanJam Europe will have more than 100 brands brand at the show. The CanJam admittance is FREE if you’ve already bought a ticket for the High End show at the MOC—at walking distance!
Highlights at the Munich Audio Show
(This post will be updated-during the event)
The number of exhibitors and the range of products are so diverse, that it’s nearly impossible to compare them all and make a top 10 list..
But you can expect some spectacular product launches by:
Wilson Audio Specialties Inc.
“TuneTot”, is a new Wilson Audio Specialties product that will launch May 10th during High End Munich, watch this post for updates May 10th.
Some “pre” launch announcements can be found around the web, Wilson Audio will have a product launch of there most compact Wilson Audio Speaker, the “TuneTot”.
Chris Connaker at ComputerAudiophile
Michael Fremer at AnalogPlanet
Mangeraudio.com will have a world premiere of Manger Audio P2 at Atrium 4.2 Room F211.
Although Manger is well-known for their active speakers, the P2 is a passive loudspeaker, and Daniela Manger will tell everything about it at High End Munich 2018.
The P2 features an 8″ woofer, and two passive radiators with a patented membrane technology on the rear. Greater bass, larger soundstage, improved clarity, better timing and increased dynamics.
Technical Audio Devices Laboratories
In 2017, Technical Audio Devices Laboratories launched the TAD Micro Evolution One. Definitely check out their Atrium Room 4.1 E118 & Atrium Room 4.1 E119. I wonder when they will disclose their product launch…
Chord Electronics Ltd.
Chord Electronics usually has very interesting product launches at the Munich High End show. At the CES, some unofficial photos circulated of a very hot “streaming” option for the Chord Hugo 2.
Recently I was surprised by the late release of the GoFigure iOS App. After introduction of the Chord Poly as the streaming option for the Chord Mojo, we all expected the GoFigure iOS App to launch shortly after that.
Maybe the GoFigure isn’t late, but instead a very early release to accompany the Chord 2Go-streamer. Perhaps we’ll find out in Munich…
Check it out at their room Atrium 4.1 E118
With a long history of Japanese craftsmanship and innovation in high-end phonograph cartridges design, Audio-Technica released the AT-LP7 Belt Drive Turntable.
Audio-Technica will also show their latest headset like the ATH-ANC700BT theQuietPoint® Wireless Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones.
Lumin audiophile network streamers connect and work with everything in the market. Tidal, Qobuz, Roon, iOS/ihone, Android, MQA, you name it…
The latest Lumin D2 is a spectaculair streamer/ DAC combo that wins at value for money comparison. Already reviewed a best-in-class and price point by a numerous online magazines.
