Our roving reporter has just managed to send this in as the city of Munich seems to have been far too hospitable and the famous Bavarian beer seemingly living up to its reputation.
Days 2, 3 and 4 were open to the public and were definitely a great deal more lively than the first trade day. Although mostly locals show goers were seen to come from all over the globe to what has become the de facto audiophile show in Europe. Trade visitors were also a plenty on these days and in this respect the High End Munich is akin to CES Las Vegas, the worlds largest Consumer electronics, trade only show, where high end Audio people gather to see and be seen every January.
The Sonneteer booth was one of the busiest on the show floor with the array of colour handsets and the beautifully designed Morpheus Music Centre seducing many an eye.
Day one was for the trade delegates in the peace and quiet away from the masses. Cognac and Cigars were far from present, however, and pleasure noises were a plenty afore the Sonneteer stand where Haider Bahrani was there to sing the Surrey based luxury brands’ song.
As mentioned, the Morpheus Server, in hand engraved and red anodised aluminium, is on show to join its sibling the Morpheus Music centre.
We also understand that there is a sneak preview of the Bard Generation 4. We will bring you confirmation of that as and when we get it. Word is, however, that it was shown tied to a wi-fi router antenna and was still demonstrated to work perfectly as was the wi-fi router itself. Spectacular news indeed, if true.
