Munich Germany -- High End Society 2006 Show

Part 1


  Here is something you do not see everyday. A Nagra IV-S, Nagra V-PP, and Benchmark's ADC1 and DAC 1.

 

World Premier of Audion's Platinum stereo integrated hybrid amplifier (£1800) produces 40 watts in Class A with the preamplification section using a 6DJ8 per channel while solid-state mosfet output section is transformer-coupled.

 

One can not truly get an aspect of how physically large the new KR Audio T-1610 tube truly is. This system, by the way, had amazing dynamics coupled with grace and rock solid imaging. See our World Premier review of the KR Audio Kronzilla DX monoblock amplifier.

 

My dad would be proud to see Wharfdale back in full flight as their new Opus2-B1, seen here as a World Premier in prototype form, includes a 1-inch tweeter and 4-inch midrange (both silk soft dome) mated with a 6.5-inch carbon woven cone woofer. The curved sides wrap around to a flat back that has dual ports and two pairs of binding posts for bi-amp/bi-wire.

 

As seen within our Industry News page, Linn just launched their Kinik system's HPC or PPC control software. This provides ease of use wirelessly.

 

As always, the first day of the show includes a meeting of High End Society's top officials including (left to right) Thomas Hintz, Alex Manninger, Kurt Hecker, Branko Glisovic, and Wolfgang Thörner. This is the 25th anniversary of their event, which is a huge celebration as this marks a quarter century of uninterrupted shows. It also showcases the importance of this well-established event. This year's facts and figures included a 25 percent increase of exhibitors according to Branko Glisovic. He also said manufacturers such as Denon, NEC, Panasonic, Pioneer, Samsung, etc. are next to very niche, small manufacturers. This proves the point that both mainstream and niche players all look to this show for business as well as public appeal.
