    Actually to be fair I thought the speakers did quite well from a pair of 300bs. When I asked the price I thought he said 140k Euros to start with and that almost seemed like 'yeah I guess' in a Munich context. But 440k is ... well ...
    I had a chat with him over a smoke and he showed me some in tank camouflage... looked pretty cool. 140K Euros is for just the speakers.

    I heard a story about Italians not being able to buy anything for more than 500 Euros in cash in Italy at the moment and arriving at the show with suitcases full of it. That's AskJa's ideal customer. Mafiosi.

    Here we go some Hi-Fu Deluxe vibe - just cos the music is kinda cool.

    Northern Hemisphere - East Of Eden.

    The OnePlus 6 mic sucks. But hey.

    And the Alsyvox doing something. The CDP and the amp aesthetics, well, that a matter of taste, I guess. Somehow looks a bit cheap in the video. More convincing in real life.

    I'd just like to say that this is a brilliant thread, and a credit to AoS. So as usual, thanks to Justin for sharing his views and superb pictures of another major hi-fi show! Nice one, mate

    I'll comment on some of the stuff later.

    The East of Eden track used in the FM Acoustics video was an LP that the demonstrator explained was better as a US pressing than a UK one.

    When he showed both copies, despite being on the same label, the UK version used about 2cm less of the available space per side.

    As an American, he was taking great glee in making it clear the US pressing was superior.

    Wanker.

    Mind you, he was right.

    Double wanker.

    (Best read in jest as that's the intent).

    New DAC from Thomas Meyer.

    Nice, looks affordable maybe... want, want, want...

    And then I saw the other two boxes and realised - gotta be 20K.

    Hate, hate, hate.



    Testing - can you see these images people?
