HiFiMAN Shangri-La: From the 6th of November For A Week With Us

After several successful years in Essen, CanJam Europe will be taking place in Berlin for the first time on 4th and 5th November 2017. Instead of a detailed report, we have decided this year for a slightly different fair souvenir: From Monday we have a rare opportunity to listen to the luxury electrostatic HiFiMAN Shangri-La together with the perfectly tuned tube headphone amplifier in our Headphone Studio for the week. We are looking forward to your visit!

Just In: Bowers & Wilkins Bluetooth Headphones

After Bowers & Wilkins recently mixed the loudspeaker market with the new Bowers & Wilkins 700 series, the British hi-fi company now forging itself in the headphone area. The Bluetooth headset Bowers & Wilkins PX not only makes a visual appearance, but also features a sophisticated technological concept.

The sophisticated 40 mm full-range drivers are slightly angled for a more realistic stage presentation. The B&W PX supports the Bluetooth standard aptX HD (up to 24 Bit / 48 kHz) to transfer high-resolution music. In addition, the App can not only adapt the sound to personal preferences, but also adapt and adjust the adaptive noise canceling function.

We are extremely excited and have the Bowers & Wilkins PX in Our Headphone Studio.

Short Update: Meze 99 Classics & 99 Neo

The Meze 99 Classics have been a part of our iteninary for a while since we took on the sister model, the Meze 99 Neo. One could assume that the latest release is only an alternative color variation – simple black instead of the noble yet lavish walnut wood. The new selection of material has also resulted in a subtle but perceptible change in the fine tuning of the set.

Both models are of course been ready for a test-drive in our headphone studio. However, the photos were not created in the usual studio set-up this time: On the one hand, let’s say that the closed Meze headphones are perfect for traveling and the outdoors, secondly, a power failure has ruined our original plan for the photo shoot!

Our Home Cinema Under Renovations!

After years of faithful service from our home cinema, it is now time to show it some TLC. The entire room is to be redesigned from scratch with new armchairs, a new lighting concept and improved room acoustics which will ensure the prefect conditions so that our updated surround system is fully utilized.

We will be installing a 7.1.4 channel system (Dolby Atmos, DTS: X) with loudspeakers from the KEF Ci series, as standard we will also be utilizing an Arcam AV860 processor. The decision regarding the power amplifier is still pending however we will certainly find a suitable solution here as well. Our acoustically transparent 4K-projector screen with a width of 3.5  will be remaining as is, apart from a fabric re-newal. We’ll be adding impressions of the reconstructions as they happen in our picture gallery. If you’re not yet familiar with our home cinema set-up, the video below provides a good overview.
