    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.

    Iím thoroughly enjoying my time in the Magico room watching Alon work his magic with setup. Heís an absolute perfectionist.

    Iíll head back up to MSB room soon. Just went to Constellation room and they will have the full Constellation setup that was reviewed in Stereophile this month. They will be showing with Magico M2ís.

    Mike,

    That Analogue Productions SACD, Dream With Dean, sounds amazing. I’ve also liked the Magico/Soulution synergy whenever I’ve listened to it.

    Mike, it would appear that the casework on some of the MSB DACs shown above has been refined a bit over what's shown on the MSB website - no?

    I donít think so. Theyíve always taken great care with the machining of the casework and the new amps are at a whole new level.

    I got to listen to the new amps today. They have no coloration. They are not warm, sweet, dry or liquid. When they say ďthey donít have any character of soundĒ, itís true. They have transient responses that are out of this world and the BLACKEST backgrounds that can barely be measured. As far as the Select II pushed digital technology, these new MSB amps push amp technology. Take my word, when we start seeing reviews and measurements, these new amps will set a new bar.

    Thanks for the reporting, Mike. It should be interesting to see how the two Magico M2 rooms, one with Solution, the other with Constellation, sound different. Magico seems to be well represented also with the M6 there. Do you know if the M3 will be in a room?

    Agreed! The two rooms are literally next door to one another too. Alon has the Soulution gear dialed in. He works hard tweaking with cables and such. I will say, the M2ís filled this big Munich show room with wall to wall sound. Canít wait to hear the M2ís with Constellation.

    Well, I'm sure Mr. Wolf will make sure the M6s are dialed in with those new MSB amps. They are quite a departure from the round amps surrounded by heat sinks. I kind of liked those as they reminded me a lot of round versions of Pass Labs old Aleph series of amps. Very form follows function.

    Yes the DACs have the tops cut away to showcase the insides, most likely done as demo pieces....

    I got that. I was referring primarily to the shape of the holes on the top sides of what I believe is the Premier (better design IMO).
