AUDIOPHILE SHOWS are
finally back this year and
arguably the most important
one globally, High End Munich,
returned for the first
time since 2019 and attracted
almost 20,000 attendees
to the May 19-22 event held
in Germany.
Though it did not quite
reach annual pre-pandemic
levels of 21,000+ such as
when CE Pro attended in
2019 - the last time the
event was staged - High
End Munich attracted 19,767
enthusiastic audiophiles who
clamored for the show, which
was canceled in spring 2020
and fall 2021 due to COVID.
" The High End is back and
we are overjoyed that it was
such a resounding success, "
says Stefan Dreischärf, managing
director of High End
Munich organizer the High
End Society. " The feedback
from our exhibitors, not to
mention the trade public,

Despite not hitting pre-pandemic levels, an enthusiastic
crowd had lots to see and hear at the MOC Event Center,
including famed audio engineer Alan Parsons.
the visitors and the press,
was overwhelming. "
Always among the most
highly anticipated audio
events, High End Munich
offered 450 exhibiting companies
from 40 countries to
cover 28,000 square meters
of the MOC Event Center.
For audio fans and manufacturers,
this spring has
been music to their ears as
High End Munich's return
from hiatus followed April's
staging of AXPONA (Audio
Expo North America) outside
Chicago and preceded T.H.E.
(The Home Entertainment)
Show held June 10-12 in Long
Beach, Calif.
The international High
End Munich event featured
a B2B focus over the first
two days, organizers note,
and among the 800 brands
presented were many leading,
established names as
well as also up-and-coming
firms, which set up shop in
the Start-Up Area.
Attendees got to indulge
in intelligent streaming
solutions, state-of-theart
turntables, traditional
tube amplifiers and proven
two-channel technology
throughout the event. Plus,
in the World of Headphones
section, visitors were able
to listen to and compare a
huge range of models, show
organizers mention.
" Since the last High End,
which took place in May
2019, quite a lot has changed
in the audio industry, " the
High End Society notes.
" From new manufacturing
methods to the use of novel
materials, the manufacturers
have used the past three
years to further develop their
products and to introduce innovative
technology into the
market. Visitors were able to
marvel not only at traditional
craftsmanship but also at
components that came right
out of the 3D printer. "
Other audio experiences elevated
the return of High End
Munich. Most notably, famed
audio engineer, producer and
musician Alan Parsons, whose
credits include working with
Pink Floyd and The Beatles,
served as High End Munich
brand ambassador.
On the heels of being
presented the OBE Award in
London by Prince William two
days earlier, Parsons offered
anecdotes and insights during
an opening day press conference
and on Saturday duringnthe
show met with ticket
lottery winning fans to greet
them and sign autographs.
Parsons even visited some
exhibiting audio companies to
talk shop and hear about their
audiophile wares.
Audiophiles can mark their
calendars for next year as
High End Munich plans to
return to the MOC Event
Center in May 18-21, 2023.
