Health permitting I might go to Munich, even though I think you could get away with going every two years.

I've been to the last four and it's hard to resist. There's no doubt it's the greatest show in the world for an audiophile.

I'm going to Munich Hi End as my wife and I will be on a holiday in Paris at that time and a quick trip on a fast train to Munich appeals to me. Of course my wife wants to come to Munich too but wild horses wouldn't get her to the Hi End Show   (😊).

That Western Electric set up this year was the closest reproduction I've heard of a full orchestra.

Yet, was very brash and in your face. I imagine it wouldn't reproduce typical genres in a positive and listenable manner - at least for more than about 10 mins IMO.

And back. A long haul, particularly when injured.

 

Nothing really new to be honest, and there was a certain sense of cut-backs from some of the brands that have been over the top in recent years with their rooms/displays. A sign of the difficulties the industry has faced over the last 12 months like most luxury goods.

 

Always great to bump into fellow Aussies while roaming the halls. Just about bowled @Krispy Audio over entering one room :)

 

Next stop, Hong Kong in August.

      One of the things I like about attending hifi shows is discovering new artists, rediscovering negleglected/ignored artists, and sometimes even new genres of music. Many times I have heard an often-repeated song played at the hifi show and thought "I want to find that track or search for more by that artist". My discovery this year was African jazz musician Hugh Makesela. I heard him played through a system comprising Dohmann Helix turntable, Thrax monoblocks, and B&W 800 D3 speakers. The percussion was DYNAMIC, and the flugel horn had that nice brass sound which is simultaneously metallic and warm. I checked the album back cover and identified 'Analogue Productions, 45rpm' - search!
       
      I would like to acknowledge those exhibitors who facilitate requests by providing the options of turntable, CD and streaming. Some exhibitors seem limited to certain types of music, artists or a few songs, which may make it easier for them to run the show, but not so interesting for the visitors. Some of them have curated eclectic demo tracks which are usually interesting. Telos and Mcleans usually don't disappoint in my experience. This year, the Hulgich/Holton room was playing good music.
       
      Hifi is not just about gear-porn. The music is the reason. Often, I come across a room bristling with gear and accessorised to the max, then I listen to the music, and wonder "what's the point?" Having said that, music is a most enjoyable experience when shared, and there will be times when one needs to put up with it rather than complain or behave disrespectfully. Just accept that tastes vary, and no music will please everyone all of the time.

      Just in time for the International HiFi show in Melbourne.
      Here is the new look Holton Zero-Five-Zero 100W +100W power amplifier.
      Building off the Zero-Five-Zero plateform, this new amplifier features 50% higher case and heat sinks
      for increased efficiency and making room for the integrated SE version that will be released later this year.
