We finished fine tuning it right on time. Here are a few quick shots of the room.

Highend 2012

The room is really getting there and it already sounds good. There’s always a slight worry before that one of the ‘links in the chain’ will not work or so, so now we can relax. At least until it opens tomorrow.

High End 2012

This is a bit like that huge storage space at the end of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’:)

We ♥ Munich (and high-fidelity)

Photo: Heav84 | Manuel Schunder

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.

Main set up

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.

Form set up

The FormFloors, the FromSub and Bladelius Tyr, playing audio from a MacBook Air also makes for a pretty neat second set up.

Full room

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.

High End 2011 – Munich

High End Society 2011

We are very happy to participate with our latest models at Europe’s biggest High End Audio trade fair in Munich this year. High End has been going since 1983 which is pretty old in Audio circuits. We will exhibit Coltrane 2 and our own Mono Power Amplifier M•Amp as well as Jorma Design cables and Svanå Miljöteknink Diffusors. It would be great if you came to visit us in room Atrium 4 2.OG E214, we’ll be there  from May 19 – 22.

High End Society

This is what it looked like last year.

You’re very welcome to visit us.

Attention!

Las Vegas

Since CES 2011 we have received a lot of attention at different places around the internet. Here are some of the mentions we’ve had:

“The system looked and sounded truly wonderful, and both amps and speakers are well worth checking out.”

Alan Sircom at The Absolute Sound

“At last year’s CES, many of my favorite rooms featured Sweden’s Marten speakers. The same held true this year.”

Thank you for the music:) Erick Lichte, at stereophile

“So, how did it sound? Simply put, it was outstanding, highly detailed, very transparent and musical at the same time.”

Key Kim at Stereotimes

“Another Swedish company making an excellent impression was Marten

the Audio Beat

“This was one of the few rooms to treat the room, and it contributed to an intimate, stimulating demonstration.”

Dagogo.com

“Uber bass resolution.”

Audio Federation

“Sweden’s Marten is well-regarded for its high-end speakers and takes a fair amount of pride in their audiophile-pleasing performance.”

Paul Ridden at Gizmag

A massive thank you to all of you, from all of us here at Marten.
