It’s June, it’s back and it’s better than ever… I’m talking about 120 pages in the Spring Edition of The Occasional magazine.

It is chocked full of all the things we as audiophiles like to fill our lives with when we are not just listening to music. I’m talking about photography, fast cars, fine gins, dark beers, gear reviews and opinion pieces on technology and where this hobby is going.

Kondo-Munich-Featured

Kondo Kagura 211 monobloc.

High End at Munich in the MOC is an A-List affair with thousands of people swarming everywhere constantly, and millions of dollars in ne plus ultra gear oozing cabling as thick as my thigh out of every nook, and cranny for the masses to ogle, and touch with sweaty hands.

Not so in the Kondo Audio Note room.

Kondo-Munich-8

Ginga Turntable.

Here an air of genteel tranquility reigned, and everyone who came in the room seemed to bow their heads ever-so-slightly in recognition that they had entered a slow zone of sorts: A place where certain properties of time, and space had become suspended in order for the music to be presented with an air of deference.… Read the full article
