REVIEW – Boenicke W5 SE Loudspeakers

By | August 28th, 2018|Categories: Hifipig|Tags: , , , , , , |

Made in Switzerland the Boenicke W5SE are a very small speaker with a reasonably high price tag of £4595. Stuart and Linette Smith take a listen. 

When Ian Ringstead who reviews for Hifi Pig heard that we had got these diminutive speakers (they ae only 2.8L in volume) from Swiss manufacturer Boenicke, he was to say the least a little bit green with envy commenting that they were his favourite small speaker when he has heard them at shows and demonstrations.

Copenhagen Show October 27th-28th 2018, Clarion Hotel

By | August 27th, 2018|Categories: Hifipig|Tags: , , , |

Talking of Hifi shows, places like Las Vegas, Munich, London and Bristol spring quickly to mind. I have to admit, though, that I had not heard of the Copenhagen show until I was asked to attend it in 2018. Yet Denmark itself is quite a big name in the Hifi manufacturing world.  Not only are there big names we all know such as Ortofon, Bang and Olufsen and Scandyna, but today Denmark plays a significant contribution to the market place with the major contingent including Copland, Dynaudio, Dali, Gryphon, Lyngdorf Audio, Densen, Vitus Audio, Gamut and Tangent, to name just a few.
