    Munich Hi-End 2019 Photos and Commentary



    After connecting in Charlotte, I landed in Munich about 6am local time (midnight Eastern).

    It’s currently almost 2pm here and I’m headed out to do some sightseeing. It is very cold. When we landed it was 32 degrees F.

    Mike,

    You are so lucky. You are going to get to hear the debut of the new MSB M500 monoblocks. I saw the system MSB is sending over on their Facebook page and they are going all out. MSB Select DAC and Transport, MSB M500 monoblocks and Magico M6 speakers. Please give a full report on this amazing system when you listen to it.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Totem Acoustic has had some innovative speaker designs with excellent performance over the years, and they'll be introducing their latest Element V2 models in Munich:
    Totem launches Element V2 @ Munich High-End Atrium 4.2 F206

    Some bold claims being made, could be worth a listen for those attending...
    "Vince Bruzzese, Totem's chief designer says "Now the Element Metal V2 can justifiably hold its head proud amongst the most expensive loudspeakers on the planet and the Element Fire V2 is the finest monitor anywhere."

    The Element Metal V2 and Element Fire V2 are available now with MSRPs of $15,500.00 and $7,000.00 USD, respectively.
