It’s a wrap! and Best of Show | High End 2019

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

The 2019 High End Munich show went as expected and that translates into many big and interesting rooms, lots of new proposals coming from some 500+ manufacturers along with beer and pork-knuckles a go go. It was fan catching up with industry insiders and fellow journalists. It is also interesting to use such shows to re-calibrate your hearing against other reporters and see if you are on the same page when it comes to what sounds good, natural or not.… Read the full article

Under the radar with Vimberg, Lumin | High End 2019

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

What a terrific room the Vimberg – Lumin has been. Vimberg is the “almost affordable” division of Tidal speakers, minus the glorious black lacquer and the latest black diamond ceramic Accuton drivers which translates into minus a whole lotta cash for pretty much the same sound the original Tidal designs had some 5 years ago. Which was excellent and still remains a superb solution. A bit less expected was the Lumin part of the system and I am not talking about their DAC/ streaming products which are top notch.

2018 RMAF: Marc’s Wrap-Up

By | November 25th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

I haven’t attended a high-end audio show as a member of the press in nearly a decade, and I’ve never done a “wrap-up” before, so this will be both an honor and a stroll into the wilderness. The 2018 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest was indeed a thrill–I haven’t been there for the last two or three years and it was a pleasure to return. I had one small problem, however, with getting lost. This was the first time I’ve been to the DTC Marriott since the renovation, and everything was moved around.… Read the full article

CAF 2018: VIMBERG, TIDAL Audio, TW-Acustic, Transfiguration, Antipodes, and Skogrand

I may have misspoke, or left a few of my earlier proclamations about the newest VIMBERG speakers less than acutely defined. If you are a listener of our Occasional Podcast, or reader of our little sister publication Audio-Head.com, then you may have heard me refer to the VIMBERG Mino loudspeakers as possibly the greatest bargain in hi-fi. To eat my own words for being less than accurate, the VIMBERG Mino loudspeakers are indeed not the greatest bargain in hi-fi.… Read the full article

There are over 1,000,000 brands exhibiting here at Capital Audiofest … okay, okay, — I don’t know how many brands exactly, but it does seem like a lot this year. Which makes 2018’s event feel every bit like the “premier show of North America’s eastern coast”, that we often claim it to be. Fear not, as the rag-tag band of misfits from Part-Time Audiophile are here to be your surrogate audio show guide.

Here are some surefire rooms to get you started off on the right foot.Read the full article

The Voice That Is!, VIMBERG, TIDAL Audio and Antipodes – RMAF 2018

by Eric Shook

First-things-first at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2018, find Doug White of The Voice That Is! This is one of my personal rituals of the audio show circus, and it always pays off. Doug consistently sets the bar for best-in-show sound, so visiting his rooms first leaves me with an audible experience I can call upon when touring and summing other rooms. During my visit with Mr. White, I had the pleasure of taking the first ever press photos of the new VIMBERG speaker line, from VIMBERG founder and designer Jörn Janczak.Read the full article

Munich High End 2018: VIMBERG & TIDAL

By | May 11th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , |

New at Munich is VIMBERG, springing from the minds, hands and creative work of Jörn Janczak of TIDAL. My understanding is that this line of loudspeakers will very much have “DNA” derived from the much more expensive TIDAL brand. Think Toyota vs Lexus, if Lexus was Rolls Royce (if that makes sense).

The new line is very much intended to be a more affordable entry to Janczak’s work (where ‘affordable’ is admittedly highly relative, of course).
