Coming Next Week: Munich High End 2014
The object of their praise is the Munich High End show, which takes place every year at the MOC Veranstaltungscenter München. Sponsored by the High End Societya professional trade organization based in Wuppertal, GermanyHigh End 2014 will run from May 15 through May 18; the first day is reserved for trade only, while consumers are welcome on the 16th through the 18th, with admission set at 12 per day, or 30 for all three days. (Children under 14 are admitted free.)
As of this writing, over 400 exhibitors have signed on for High End 2014: a staggering and yet sobering number, given that I'll be covering the show for Stereophile.com. (My colleague Michael Fremer will also be there, on behalf of Analogplanet.com.) It's unlikely that I'll be able to visit all 400 during my time in Munich, but I'll report on as many as possible, with an eye toward the artisanal, the unusual, the very new, the very old, and the very, very goodso please stay tuned.
