Audio Video Show 2015

Audio Video Show in Warsaw is the second biggest hi-fi show in Europe, and this year it just got bigger. Some say it's not much smaller than High End in Munich now and we are not surprised. The event was able to grow so much thanks to the new venue. In recent years the show was held in three hotels in Warsaw, but even four or five hotels wouldn't provide the necessary room for 135 exhibitors and more than 10,000 visitors we had this year, so the organizer of the show replaced one of the hotels with... The Polish National Stadium. Not the football pitch of course, but rather 60 VIP rooms and many, many stands located on the corridors. For the first time in history, the Audio Video Show included a special headphone zone with more than 50 brands showing their products and allowing visitors to listen to every one of them, much like the CanJam, but to us - even more interesting.

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.

IFA 2013

The next edition of one of the biggest events in the electronics industry has been launched. IFA is the largest exhibition of consumer electronics in Europe and probably one of the two or three events of this scale in the world. The huge complex of Messe Berlin has been occupied by hundreds of companies producing almost everything, starting from accessories for mobile phones, and ending on giant TV's, refrigerators and complete home theater systems. Berlin turns into one big electronics store, but there are no sales because everything is fresh and new.
