Munich HIGH END 2017 Show Report


There is no other place in Europe where the entire range of audio products is presented as impressively and emotionally as HIGH END. The diversity of services in the industry reflects both the big players as well as the many smaller, more specialized and niche providers. Visitors will be immersed in analog high-precision art as well as in the latest digital audio and visual soundscapes. Exquisite analog equipment blends in harmoniously with the latest multimedia equipment. Perfectly processed loudspeakers, traditional tube amplifiers and cult turntables stand side by side with networked audio systems, audio streaming solutions, digital wireless systems and multimedia stations. Visitors can find everything their music-loving heart's desire, regardless of age and lifestyle.



"The consumer electronics industry is experiencing a radical transformation in the midst of an era of digitalisation and virtualisation" says HIGH END organization. "Ease of availability and new consumer habits mean that today people are listening to more music than ever before. Concepts such as streaming and multi-room systems are becoming ever more popular. This means one of the biggest future trends is in user-friendly digital all-round devices. More and more consumers are combining very different devices in their own homes and using intelligent connection systems that offer more convenience, security, entertainment and above all, cost and energy savings. The HIGH END provides important impetus for tomorrow's music systems and reflects trends in the industry."

HIGH END 2017 included many seminars and lectures from leaders within the high-end audio industry. Live music events are also a highlight as bands travel throughout the venue playing music to a welcoming audience. No other show promotes their event as HIGH END provides. Radio and TV commercials and augmented by posters on buses, within the subway and taxi cabs. HIGH END truly is leading the way when it comes to providing one of the world's largest specially audio shows in the world.



HIGH END provided shuttles from the airport to the venue, and from the venue to a variety of local hotels. Shuttles are available in the morning and evening to transport exhibitors and attendees to and from the M.O.C..
