High End Show Munich 2016: Oddities & Other Turntables
Article by WL Low
In this wrap up of my tour in Munich High End 2016, I present you some of the images less published in other web sources. It is evident that analog is making a big, big comeback not only with turntable at every corner of the show, but also restored open reel tape decks and software. There were hundreds of cable & speaker exhibitors too. Horn speakers seems to be back in a big way in Europe, especially in the German speaking countries. Another trending issue is the ever spiraling prices of high end hifi. Six figure turn tables are very common sight at the show, and the race to the top is a Euro 260,000 turn table! 4 tower speaker systems seems popular too, starting with six figure price tags. Prestige, does not come cheap, as they say.
A demo session using a system comprising Borresen 02 speakers, Aavik amplifier, Aavik streamer, Aavik phono, Ansuz cables and the J Sikora turntable will be held at the Audio Perfectionist showroom on the 1st floor, Block H, Jaya One, Petaling Jaya, this Saturday (July 23).
