Just arrived at the ETF 2013 in Berlin and would like to share some initial impressions.
Interesting speaker concept:
An amplifier stand in the spirit of the ETF:
another cool creation:
The tube used in this amp looks like a 832 thoriated tungsten filamentary transmitting triode:
Tubes, tubes, tubes:
Cool speaker design:
Besides amps, speakers and other audio gear there is also all kind of weird stuff:
For example in the flea market section:
And the highlight of my first walk around, the disco:
With an incredible EMT 927A-ST turntable console:
40cm platters! Cool set up, great sound and great music.
A wow and flutter meter connected to the EMT. I have never seen something like that:
It's operated with the case open so the inside can be seen. Apparently it works with a light beam which is deflected by a mirror which has it's angle controlled:
Stay tuned for more live reports from Berlin!
