Clearaudio's launched their Performance turntable (€1950) that includes the company's Maestro MM cartridge and Satisfy carbon fiber tonearm. Of note is the use of a newly developed Ceramic Magnet Bearing (CMB) technology.
CMB is a dual magnet where one pole is on the base while the other is for the platter; meanwhile the center white protruding part is non-magnetic ceramic. The two opposite magnetic forces the platter to float, and said to allow for free spinning upwards of 40 minutes due to the lack of resistance. The Performance turntable system is offered in black or white.
Live music happening throughout the day in the
Clearaudio booth could be enjoyed by all show attendees.
Revolver had their new Replay (£1499) that has a marble plinth and PVC resin platter. The bearing is stainless steel and it plays 33 and 45 rpm vinyl.
And of course various music retailers.
The High End Society also releases various music discs as well as selling various swag including shirts, coffee mugs, etc.
Gryphon Audio felt he High End Society's Munich show was the perfect place to have their first public showing of
the company's Atlantis (€22,000) loudspeaker (currently in prototype form). Standing approximately four feet high, his three-way, five-driver system has two 8-inch woofers, two 4-inch midrange plus a ceramic tweeter. The crossover employs the same technology as Gryphon's reference Poseidon that has proprietary parts. The loudspeaker is phase correct at all frequencies at all times, plus of course time aligned. Batteries power the capacitors within the crossover to keep them charged at all times. The panels on the cabinet can be changed to match whatever your interior decor takes you. Efficiency is 90dB/W/m at 8 Ohms, never dropping below 4 Ohms. Expected launch date will be in July for Asia, the remainder of the world in September.
