Live from Berlin : ETF 2014 - Part 2


Set up work progresses! There is already music playing here and there. But in most rooms there is still a lot of soldering going on.

This year threes a delegation of participants from Japan and they brought some very interesting looking stuff:

Everything just unloaded and assembly is going on. These are some very unique looking amplifiers. All in wood chassis.

Very special looking transformers also in wood encasings:

And check out these gorgeous speakers:

I am looking forward to listen to this stuff and get more information about it. I will report back.

Holger made some progress with the the 4355s:

What a contrast compared to the stuff from Japan! This is what the ETF is about. So vastly different styles, tastes and technologies.

Stay tuned!

Best regards
