Outside of the US, the High End 2022 show in Munich, Germany is probably one of the biggest in the world – if not THE biggest in the world. This week on The Occasional Podcast Marc Phillips from PartTimeAudiophile joins the show to tell all about his experience flying 14 hours for 4 days of sweet audio bliss.
The episode contains his highlights and best of show from the event, along with some of his best tips for making the best of the trip, should a US audiophile decide to visit. Marc was impressed by all the big sounds at the show, even though it is known as a B-To-B event (rather than one that is entirely open to the public). Rooms tend to be oriented in this manner, so while listening is highly encouraged, conversations and business talk can often be seen as a priority as well.
