Zwei Wochen nach der High End Messe in München fand die Los Angeles Audio Show 2017 statt.
Obwohl wir hier dieses nur mit kleinerem Gepäck unterwegs waren reichte auch dieses für einige Auszeichnungen der wichtigsten Magazine für den besten Sound der Show.
Two weeks after the High End Show in Munich we attended the Los Angeles Audio Show.
Although only bringing our smallest speakers the performance was good enough for a “Best Sound of the Show” from some of the major magazines.
Robert Harley, Chief editor “The Absolute Sounds” magazine:
Holger Stein and his wife Gabbi made the trip from Germany for the show, and put on one of the show’s best-sounding rooms. Although far from Stein Music’s top-of-the-line gear, the sound was remarkably natural, dynamic, and alive (as it was in Munich two weeks earlier). The amplifier in the system was the HighLine 1 integrated ($12,800 euros) driving the HighLine S loudspeaker that mates a horn midrange/tweeter with a woofer. The HighLine S can be stand-mounted, or set atop a matching bass module (as it was for the LA show demo). Except for the turntable and cartridge, Stein Music makes every component in the system from the tonearm to digital media player to cables, to room treatments, to accessories.

"Really fine midrange and gorgeous sound" was my reaction to Tom Waits' whiskey-drenched voice through Holger Stein's virtually all-SteinMusic system. On a recording of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, the organ sounded excellent and spacious through prototype SteinMusic HighLine S loudspeakers ($14,400/pair) with excellent bass extension. Eager to hear more, I discovered that, despite some unwanted room resonances, the voice of mezzo Anne Sofie von Otter in her prime sounded simply gorgeous on a recording of baroque music.
