High End Munich 2015 – The Room

We were lucky to get some shots of the room yesterday before we opened otherwise it’d have been impossible. There has been a constant crowd hindering the view ūüôā Leif is playing a crazy mix of tunes, everything from Rock with¬†Jimi Hendrix , Jazz with Hiromi¬†and¬†Beethoven with Lang Lang¬†to¬†Electronica with James Blake¬†and Blues with Junior Wells. It all sounds great!

Great review!

The Miles 5 is presumably the most live-sounding speaker in this size! …and price range!

Miles 5

We just received a copy of German HiFi magazine StereoPlay 07/2014. The conclusion goes something like this:

The Miles 5 perfectly succeeds in creating unity. This is one of the nicest, most supreme, two-way loudspeaker in the absolute top class.

Good times!

before

Even though we’ve been listening to music 24/7 the last four days we still haven’t had enough. It’s an addiction isn’t it, a healthy one though.

Yet another great test of Django XL

Marten Django

Thank you very much to Stefan Gawlick at Hifi&Records in Germany for this great review. As usual, the translation is so so but hopefully you get the gist:

RESULT
How is this possible? That is the question I have asked myself many times during my time with Django. It is quite clear that one must look with a magnifying glass to find a speaker with such a bandwidth, wide soundstage, detail and balance. The joy that this speaker conveys with small competent amplifier is great. The Marten Django is a declaration of war and that a clear one!

More from Munich

It’s all over now but we still have some stuff to show. We finally managed to find some time to have a look at this HUGE show.

Silbatone Acoustics

We have featured these guys before but they are so cool that we had to stay for a listen again. Gigantic antique restored theatre and cinema speakers from Silbatone Acoustics. Very impressive.
