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!

The system

Here is the main system – Four MSB M203 Mono blocks between the pair of Coltrane 3


MSB Electronics with the Hard Disk Player Aurender X100 closest in the middle. All on Solid Tech racks.


Jorma Design cables are being used all over. Here is a Jorma Prime on display.


Our logotypes can be seen behind the new SMT S-Wings.

Electric blues boy

James Blake

One evening not long ago we went to see wonder child James Blake at Shepherd’s Bush Empire¬†in London.¬†A wonderful experience of sound, light and music. There have been a lot of superlatives mentioned about this guy before but we thought it wouldn’t hurt to add some to the collection.

He has an incredible talent of making his recorded electronic Dubstep inspired music sound extremely warm and fuzzy. When he performs this live it has an even more warm and personable. He has an incredible control over his voice and records the imaginative backing vocals on spot until it reaches some kind of nirvana of unusual harmonies. Even though the control of the voice it only sounds as if just happens, that it’s just the way he sings and always did without any training. During the concert you become embedded into his world of warm, and beautifully moody sounds and even the dadaism-ish sampled lyrics become sort of meaningful and poetic: Look I found her red coat, look I found her, DAMN!

Well done Mr Blake, we will make an effort to see you again.
