High End 2017 - recap


Just arrived back home and finished unloading. Time to write a last post about the High End show.

It's been a great time filled with tunes, talks and tubes.

I'd like to thank all visitors for the feedback and great discussions! And to all co-exhibitors.

Charles 'Chuck' Michlin of Azzolina Audio, who celebrated his birthday during the show.

He hauled over two beautiful pairs of speakers all the way from France.

Thanks to Bernd Hemmen of PrimaryControl for taking care of the analog front end in room F231c.

His new Field Coil Loaded tone arm was a revelation!

Also a big Thank You to Martin Brenner of Vinylista and Thomas Schick for the superb analog front end in room F231e.

And for the beautiful racks!

I am also glad that Vincent Brient of totaldac provided a DAC and server for us to play digital!

And of course to Wolf von Langa for raising the bar with his new Audio Frame speaker line.

A very special thank you to Frank Wogatzki for running the 78rpm shellac sessions and for sharing his knowledge and passion!

And last but not least a big, big Thank You to Camilla, Anja, Hildegard, Emmanuel, Gunter and Bernd. Without You pulling off two such rooms at the High End would not have been possible!

And not to forget: Thanks to the High End Society for keeping the Show alive and kicking and for making it better every year.

While we are at it I also want to pay my respect to the team of Silbatone.

Their contribution to the show provides a very different perspective and is quite educational.

Here a video of Joe Roberts explaining this years speakers.

See you all again next year!

Best regards
