Heinz Lichtenegger - Pro-Ject

Heinz Lichtenegger is one of the most interesting and forward-thinking people in the audio industry. The founder of Pro-Ject is known for his unwavering love for vinyl records and turntables. He is one of those who always believed in the power of vinyl and more - he's probably largely responsible for the renaissance of this medium. All turntable lovers should know his products - many of them have started their analog adventure with a Pro-Ject, and even those who do not use vinyl certainly associate the company with Box Design units. Where did it all come from, and what plans does Heinz have for the nearest future?

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.

High End 2014

The largest exhibition of audio equipment in Europe is behind us so we are getting back to normal operation. Before this happens, we wrote a small summary of the whole event. The form of our reports is forced by the size of the exhibition. Even before exploring the MOC halls we came to the conclusion that it's impossible to see it all, but we tried nevertheless. We could of course focus on ten, twenty or thirty rooms with the most anticipated new stuff or just the most expensive equipment, but what kind of report would it be, if you have hundreds or thousands of companies and you only pick a few dozens? So we hope that our gallery at least allows you to catch the climate of High End and see some interesting devices. For now all the photos have been posted, also on our profile on Instagram. If you are interested in our impressions of the exhibition, if you were out there somewhere or you want to go to Munich next year, we hope it would be an interesting lecture.

Audio Show 2013

Audio Show is without doubt the largest exhibition of audio equipment in Poland and one of the biggest in Europe. After two days of visiting hotel rooms full of gear we are able to upload a gallery. How was the show? My first impression was this - perhaps it's too much of it all, or not enough time to see all the stuff. It was not only journalists who complained about the rush, but also normal visitors, exhibitors and even the organizer. You can tell that the event has grown almost to the point of explosion. Of course it is very cool that you can come to Warsaw and see so much good stuff. Manufacturers and journalists from around the world come to the show because it's a place where you can see many important products for the first time. But I don't believe that anyone can honestly say - yes, I was able to see everything.
