Like many other retailers, Marantz has brought a new highlight to the world at this year's High End in Munich: the new KI Ruby series pays homage to developer Ken Ishiwata, who has been a brand ambassador for over 40 years. The series consists of the SA-KI Ruby, which is an SACD player, as well as the PM-KI Ruby integrated amplifier.
The SR-009 have been impressing us for a while now. Now the Japanese powerhouse STAX Ltd. with their SR-009s have released an upgrade that can be very much heard! Just in time for the High End Fai in Munich where they will be presented. Seeing as we are pretty excited about it, we decided to put together some preliminary details on headphones in advance.
Some time ago, Marantz introduced the ND8006 to the world. It is the first all-rounder network CD player from the Japanese company. An obligatory feature is of course the CD playback and streaming from network and Internet - of course in high resolution. Since the all-rounder has some other highlights in its luggage, there is a brief overview and a few first impressions.

The 'high end' fair in Munich's MOC trade centre is one of the most important events for the industry of quality hi-fi and consumer electronics, an event which sees an annual congregation of a growing number of manufacturers, distributors, trade visitors and sound enthusiasts. Since 2010, the previously May occurring roadshow will be complimented by regional events under the banner 'High End on Tour' and this time rolling into Berlin on the 7th and 8th March for the first time. This time the emphasis is on local dealers, which naturally we're very excited about. Below are the most important facts, and expect us to report back from the roadshow soon!
