Blog: High End Munich & Canjam Europe 2018 – Picture Report Part 1


Who doesn’t love Fiio?

Fiio’s product line-up has quickly expanded and they had everything there at the booth

You of course had the popular DAPs such as the X3iii, X5iii and X7II

They did also bring newer gear such as the Q1ii and the Q5

Again, review soon on HFN!

Most of my attention went to the new M7 DAP though. The M7 was tested in China first and it will only hit the international market once all the bugs have been worked out. It looks and sounds really good though

Yep, another soon to be published review!

Final Audio

I love the E2000 and E3000 but Final has a lot more models. And then there’s the D8000 full sized headphone, which Linus already reviewed.


Flux is a new brand but I’ve been talking to the guys for quite some time already. They have a desktop sized AMP/DAC unit with so much technology inside you won’t believe it. Keep an eye on this one

Focal Audio

The French brand was known for their speakers long before their headphones became really big.

The Focal Elear and Clear are two really great headphones, but my personal favorite still is the Utopia. It in fact is one of my all time fav headphones for musical enjoyment

And the last page of the first part can be found right HERE, after the CLICK

    Excellent coverage.
    I’m waiting til you can reveal the news you mentioned in the Audioquest part. Maybe something re- Skylar …?

    Hey Lieven, I have been searching for comparisons of Astell&Kern SR15 and the AK70ii. Did you get a chance to try the SR15? If yes, how is it compared to the AK70ii?

      I only quickly got to listen to it in Munich. the SR15 samples aren’t available yet so I4m waiting for it just like everyone else. Soon I hope 🙂

        How was your first impression of the SR15? I’m actually considering to buy a DAP instead of upgrading my IEM.

        Currently, I’m using a Shure SE215SPE with AresII Cable,V-MODA Crossfade Wireless, and ATH-M50. Do you think buying a DAP will be more beneficial than buying a $500 – $1000 IEM?
