Today we found a moment to walk around and check at least our floor out.
We found our mate Wes not far from ours, looking very professional with his new set up. Do like the logo work as well:)

What a great place Munich is. Walking around in this beautiful city in the spring weather is a real treat. Popping into a bierhalle for a drink here and there makes it all even better:)
The High End fair is exactly how you would expect it to be in Germany, neat, tidy and well organised with a lot of space for everyone. We had our room set up and ready yesterday evening and it’s actually sounding pretty darn good if we may say that ourselves.
Unfortunately I had a little memory mishap and forgot my Canon 50D that I usually use for all the blog photos but luckily, Leif’s little handy Olympus F1.8 takes great pictures so that is what we’ll be using for this show.
The Coltrane 2, M•Amp and M•Furniture set up with Jorma Design’s brand new cables, Unity. We also use SMT’s lovely looking diffusors that we had in our room at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.
The FormFloors, the FromSub and Bladelius Tyr, playing audio from a MacBook Air also makes for a pretty neat second set up.
Even if the room is quite large we actually filled it most of this rather busy day. Tomorrow the show will open for non-audio business people so maybe it will be even busier.
See you tomorrow with more form the rest of the show.

M•Amp by night
We have a lot more to show from CES 2011 so here we go:
The new, very interesting USB Dac from Bladelius. Seems to have very high quality both in performance and appearance.

The Dream Weekend 27-28/11/09
It might seem like a distant dream now after the holidays and CES but the Marten Showroom was crowded with audio lovers on the last weekend in November 09.
Erik Andersson and Ola Hesselvall, demonstrated their latest amplifier project: The Dream. This has been legendary audio designer Erik’s dream for many years and he has really put all of his experience and heart into it.
The tube amplifier has direct heated triodes (Russian GM70) which are unusually powerful for being single ended (40W). The setup was really something, with our new reference model Coltrane Momento, Jorma Prime cables, Bladelius Embla CD-player, EAT Forte turntable, Helius Omega 12″ tone-arm, Einstein Audio TU3 cartridge and Einstein Audio “Little Big Phono” phonostage.
The furniture used was G.A.D.-Marten. By that we mean the audio furniture and not the brand of the sofa we sat on. And no, it’s not from IKEA:)

What type of cold do you get in a place like Las Vegas? A fake one of course. Perfumed, air-conditioned air plus jet lag can feel like a real bad cold but after a good nights sleep you feel ok again. Even just a fake cold can make your energy levels low so this day dragged on a bit.

Finally in glitzy Las Vegas and all that comes with it; casinos, Elvis impersonators, drive-in weddings and of course the biggest Electronics Show in the world. As you get used to the perfumed air (they actually scent the air in most of the casinos) it is quite a cool place to be.
