Audio Show 2014

Audio Show in Warsaw is by far the biggest exhibition of audio equipment in Poland and perhaps the second biggest in Europe, after the High End in Munich. This year's edition was announced to be the largest in history and it turned out that these news were not exaggerated. To cope with the growth of the whole event, the rooms were divided into three zones - analog, head-fi and cinema - so the fans of these specific topics could quickly find interesting presentations. If you want to get the idea of what Audio Show looks like, imagine three large hotels filled with hi-fi equipment and thousands of people rushing inside them over just one weekend. It's vast, but also very interesting and satisfying for audio enthusiasts.

If you want to get the idea of what Audio Show looks like, imagine three large hotels filled with hi-fi equipment and thousands of people rushing inside them over just one weekend.

To take pictures of almost every presentation, we went in with five journalists and three cameras, but there were still some rooms we just couldn't get into because of the huge crowd. Nevertheless we took lots of photos that we can now share with you. As the Radisson Blu Sobieski hotel is the central point of the exhibition, we decided to visit two other hotels first - the Bristol and the Golden Tulip, so almost all hi-end presentations announced as the greatest hits of the whole show are there. You can also see the video in the bottom section of our website or directly at YouTube, so please take a look to see the atmosphere of the show.
