Lots of gear on Violectric/Lake People’s tables
The V281 amplifier still is the star of the lineup for most people
Fried does know what good headphones are. And if you want an even better price-quality ration, then the LakePeople Pro gear is all you need
I still use the V850 DAC as my main DAC downstairs, in combination with the V281
We loved the Westone W60 and we’re working on the ES80 review right now
As Woo Audio still doesn’t have the CE certification for most models, you don’t very often see their gear at shows. The WA33 is a incredible amplifier though. And how beautiful can an amplifier be…
And then it’s now time for our own Show Awards!

The first Canjam Europe show in Berlin saw over 1000 visitors and the CE-team confirmed the same location for next year’s show already. We had a great time with the exhibitors and the visitors and want to thank the organization for all the fun.
The Canjam team also announced that a new Canjam Europe show will be held at the same time as the awesome High End show in Munich. That does mean that there will be two Canjam Europe headphone shows in Berlin in 2018. Who said the market was slowing down?
As we’re on a limited budget however we will only be covering the High End and the Canjam show that’ll be hosted in Munich in May. Unless someone is willing to sponsor our trip, of course 😉
I hope you enjoyed the report and we’re now taking a well deserved break from headphone shows till May next year!
