The International HI-FI SHOW


Events & Specials

Every year, the HIGH END offers its visitors a diverse range of entertaining events. Be it top-quality music demonstrations, interesting talks, informative product presentations or exciting workshops, it truly offers something for everyone. Come to the HIGH END and experience international artists who showcase a combination of technology and music at their very best in their performances.

Learn how to listen

Consummate listening enjoyment is also firmly grounded in basic theoretical concepts, a steadfast principle not merely since the digitalization of audio technology. Loudspeakers need to be properly set up, sound pickups adjusted, network players installed – this can be achieved quickly, precisely and with exquisite audio results, given the required basic knowledge.

The HIGH END KOLLEG, a lecture series, imparts this fundamental audiophile savvy within the scope of trade show events, aided by presentations on basics, innovations and even special technologies. To ensure that excursions like these into the realm of high-end audio possibilities will be both interesting and entertaining, they are staged by industry experts who share their insider knowledge in the lecture series.


Cleverly assembled entry-level systems

SoundsClever is a recognized standard and an orientation guide for all visitors to the HIGH END. It provides recognition to complete playable audio systems offering extraordinary sound performance for less than EUR 5,000. A technical and musical experience for the discerning audiophile.

During the HIGH END exhibition, various professionals from the industry will present their contribution to the HIGH END SOCIETY's SoundsClever initiative. The rules are the same for all specialists: aside from the provision that a set is ultimately not allowed to cost more than EUR 5,000, there are no restrictions. Thus, the combinations are expected to reflect the full spectrum of the audio industry: either strictly digital, high-end analog or both combined in one hi-fi system.

Direction signs bearing the SoundsClever logo will show you the way to a clever audio system at the HIGH END. The featured details will be announced here starting in mid-April.
