High End Munich. My favorite show of the year! Why is that you say? Well, it has all the brands that really matter, all the product launches, it’s not too crowded and you get to see all your audio friends again. Oh and to get there we have 700 kilometers of unlimited German Autobahn. The pics in this report are from the gear that really caught our attention at the High End show. It’s not realistic to cover all the personal audio gear, and it’s a complete mission impossible to cover everything
As usual this will be a picture report of the show, in alphabetical order, split over two parts as there are around 200 pictures: Eye candy à volonté. Enjoy!
This is PART 2 of the picture report. Part 1 can be found here: https://www.www.headfonia.com/high-end-munich-2019-1/
Not really a headphone amp but gosh this is a beautiful tube amp. Bird cage included
I like the brand and what they’re doing. Unfortunately there this year is nothing new in regards to personal audio but they still have a great power cleaner
As well as a lovely headphone AMP/DAC, the S3
Kennerton Audio Equipment
Did you know they also have a small tube amp?
Valentin also let me listen to the Kennerton JORD and it sounds incredible for a closed entry-fi headphone, I did not see that coming. It’s also very foldable and indestructible.
And then there were these two test models which I also really loved
If you have the opportunity to listen to the MAGNI, make sure you do as it sounds incredibly open for a closed headphone. And then the headphone on the right…. keep following HFN, it’ll be worth it.
And then there is this Fischer Audio M12S which will be very affordable and it has a great price/quality ratio. They also showed me a prototype universal IEM and that one will blow away the competition if they manage to keep the price around $500USD.
That 04 has the looks and sound
And there’s the miniature sized portable electrostat amp
The parent company of Violectric took the full stack to the show. Great gear for more affordable prices.
It’s always nice seeing Mr. Lehmann at the shows, he’s so passionate.
The wood is really pretty but more important, their amps are incredibly well engineered. And then there’s the Chrome finish
The newest thing? The DAC addition to the Drachenfels D amplifier. Soon on HFN!
