Munich HIGH END 2024 Show Was Grueling... And Fun There is just so much to see, do, and listen to! HIGH END 2024 Show Report By Robert May

Munich HIGH END 2024 Show Was Grueling... And Fun!
There is just so much to see, do, and listen to!
HIGH END 2024 Show Report By Robert May
Munich's HIGH END 2024 high-performance audio / hi-fi event has come and gone. As usual, the show was packed, both with audio gear and with audiophiles. Even in four days, two for trade, and two for the public, it was only possible to skim the surface of the exhibits, both active demos and static displays, that covered the expanse of the Munich MOC exhibition space. The overall impression after those four immersive days is of an extremely active industry, creating products of exceptional fit and finish, all in the service of seeking the best in audio. In the active demos, there was much commonality in the aural presentation of state-of-the-art audio systems – great transparency, details, and presence, with the best showing more than a modicum of soundstage depth and dimensionality. Within this envelope, there were of course as many variations, both subtle and not, on these themes; the fun is in hearing these variations wandering from room to room.

Show Report By Jason Kennedy
Since many of you are very familiar with details concerning the HIGH END show in Munich, let’s jump right into it, shall we? Vertere took a room in the Motorworld across the road from the main show to reveal a high-end phono preamplifier dubbed CALON. This takes a multi-layer approach by adding gain to the signal before and after RIAA EQ, with both gain stages being adjustable. The idea is that a stronger signal will be less prone to picking up noise during the filtering. Vertere has also added a subsonic filter because company founder Touraj Moghaddam considers such things to be useful in making the lives of both amplifiers and loudspeakers easier, not having to amplify signals below 20Hz is good for amps and not having pumping cones is good for speakers. The price has been set at $19,995.

HIGH END 2024 At MOC Reaches New Heights
The High End Society's HIGH END 2024 high-end audiophile show in Munich reaches new heights with a total of 22,198 visitors during the four day event. While the visitor statistics were a touch above last years, with 11,237 trade visitors and was higher than public attendance numbers of 10,373 for the first time. Music enthusiasts traveled from 108 nations to HIGH END 2024. There were 588 media representatives who traveled to Munich to discover the latest in high-performance audio gear and immersive music. According to the show promoter, "The HIGH END 2024 saw overwhelming visitor traffic on the first public day, where visitor crowds were so large at times that sections of the atriums had to be temporarily cordoned off to prevent the aisles and rooms from being overfilled."



Space within the MOC covers more than 30,000 square meters in the four halls and three atriums, and HIGH END 2024 visitors experienced fantastic demonstrations of exclusive hi-tech audio and hi-i products. As normal, the trade show section was fully subscribed as a total of 513 exhibiting companies spanned every square meter of exhibition space. In addition, there were two special trade shows consisting of IPS (International Parts + Supply) and the World Of Headphones in Hall 1. The latter was a newly opened space and presented a vast assortment of high-quality personal audio products, headphones, portable audio players, and accessories. Of note is that younger visitors in particular frequented the new area, but exhibitors also took notice and expressed an interest in cooperation. In contrast to traditional gaming festivals and expo events, as HIGH END 2024 focuses on the sound created when playing. This year's featured event saw renowned musical artist and recording engineer Steven Wilson invite visitors and immersivephiles to spatial audio and explained the difference between stereo, Dolby Surround, and immersive audio by playing music from various musicians, genres, and decades in the fully packed sessions.

Acclaimed musician and producer Steven Wilson will be presenting his most recent album "The Harmony Codex" in immersive audio reproduction at the HIGH END 2024, taking place from May 9 to 12 at the MOC Event Center in Munich. In cooperation with the organizer of the international audio show and the company PMC, which has exhibited at the HIGH END for many years, Wilson will be holding a series of seminars on all four days of the event, sharing his vast knowledge and experience of mixing in spatial audio with his guests. At the presentations, visitors will have the unique opportunity to become familiar with the creative use of reference level audio, guided by the Grammy-nominated spatial audio mix engineer and one of the world's leading songwriters and producers. 



Steven Wilson, no stranger to the HIGH END, having been brand ambassador in 2019, will give a series of talks about the use of immersive audio in the creation of his music and share his experience as a sought-after remixer of classic works by other artists.

At the same time as HIGH END, the Society's International Parts + Supply (IPS) event perfectly complemented High End Society's  show, which has developed into the largest international hi-fi show and enjoys tremendous significance and international popularity within the audio industry.
