The Best!

the Coltrane Momento 2 was neutral, 3-D, spacious, alive, and astonishingly of a piece from top to bottom—excellent on digital and on an R2R recording of a jazz trio (where it was superb on bass, drum, and ride cymbal), and among the best I heard on my Sachmo LP. 

Great quote about our room at the Munich High End from Mr Jonathan Valin at The Absolute Sound. We are very happy to be part of ‘The Best’ section. Have a look closer here.

Guangzhou International Advanced Audio Exhibition 2018

We had a brilliant weekend at the Guangzhou International Advanced Audio Exhibition 2018. It is one of the bigger shows in Asia and it was packed most of the time. We played our Coltrane 3s  for the first time together with Swizz Goldmund Electronics which was a great combination along with Jorma Design Statement. The spectacular CD player is from French Metronome. As per usual when in China the audience is a great deal younger than in the West so good energy all round. 

Thank you to everyone involved!

Great Company Portrait from German Stereo Magazine. Have a read on page 34. Also worth to mention is that the room acoustics are made by SMT.

Tokyo International Audio Show 2016

This past weekend was very stimulating for us. Being in Tokyo and also having the opportunity to participate at the fantastic Tokyo International Audio Show. This was the first time there which made it even more exciting.

We showed our mighty Coltrane 3 together with a TechDas turntable, SAT tonearm, CH Precision and Constellation Audio electronics. This combination made for a real detailed and rich sound that was very well received. Our room was full to the brim most of the time.

Weekend in Hong Kong

We had a great time this weekend at the Hong Kong High-End Show 2016.

We exhibited with Forthwise, our distributor for Hong Kong, Macau and China. We played on the brilliant TechDAS turntable together with CH Precision electronics. The sound was extremely natural and clear which we received a lot of positive feedback for.
