In 2010 Silbatone started the tradition of bringing glorious vintage Western Electric sound to the High End fair in Munich. Each year they are bringing a more exciting, more exotic and more vintage set up and repeat to amaze and dazzle the visitors and stirr up the scene.
This year they brought a set up with the WE15A horns.
The horns were driven with WE555 field coil drivers.
Supported by a field coil tweeter, coupled with a cap which is just hanging at the cable:

As in the previous years, this set up drew a lot of people into the room.
Also on demo were two speakers from GIP.
Note the Kraftwerk LP on the left. This was played a lot. A long with all kinds of music from classical to Black Sabbath which caused a lot of grey haired guys to show their head banging skills.
One of the sources was this uniquely designed turntable from Thomas Schick:
A huge sub with EV30 and Altec 515Bs, designed by JC Morrison supported the horns in the low frequency department:

After the show we ended the day with a get together in one of the most beautiful beer gardens in Munich.
Thanks to the Silbatone crowd for bringing this set up and for sharing their passion for such vintage gear.
