Blog: High End Munich 2023 Show Report – Part 2


Lovely gear and beautifully designed as well.


The Bravura should be featured soon on Headfonia!

Western Electric

If you’re into tubes and 300b tubes, you will know the iconic 300b tube from Western Electric. They are a little out of my league but man are they nice!

Who knows, maybe one day I will be able to own a WE tube amp.

Woo Audio

It’s been a while since we saw something really new from Woo Audio, but now the WA23 LUNA is here.

Doesn’t it look gorgeous? I listened to it with the Empyrean and there was absolutely nothing to complain about.


You can find lots of xDuoo reviews on Headfonia.

The unit I probably use most is their Digital Turntable.

But they have so much different gear


It’s actually named 11 Audio and we absolutely love their Broadway gear.

I also got to listen to their new headphone amplifier prototype and I was seriously impressed.


I finally got to listen to the new Yamaha 5000S headphone. I spoke to the engineer about it and it actually took 5 or 6 years to develop.

Sound wise this headphone sounds heavy and full and it comes with plenty of low end. I did like the energy level, sparkle and fine detail as well as the note decay. I do am worried about listening fatigue however because of the thickness.


I am glad I finally got to meet the ZMF team in person, and I really look forward to covering their headphones again on

I especially loved this creation and tt was nice to discover how ZMF is building their unique wooden cups
