MUNICH HIGH END 2017 - AVANTGARDE - HIGHLY COMMENDED

ROOM E124
Avantgarde electronics and speakers with WADAX streamer and Kronos TT


Well, you'd not call this system shy, nor retiring.  The very orange horns flanking 3 vertically stacked sub-woofers.  Argh! Another set of horns that he won't like?  Not at all - a very decent system that played music very well indeed. It didn't seem to matter which source was in play, we got natural, flowing music with any easy to follow tune and excellent, consistent timing.
The system was loud, but only noticable when trying to talk to someone - a very good sign of quality.  Streaming Tocatta & Fugue was at superb scale and effortless. The horns were nicely free of any nasality.  No imaging of note, but a good, confident, mix of music was played.  We were also treated to a live performance by a fully entertaining drummer / singer who used the electronic drums for percussion and for playing as musical instruments to generate a tune.  Very entertaining.
