Audio Deluxe demonstrated high-class systems with Franco Serblin Ktema and Marten Mingus Quintet speakers, then Vitus Audio electronics of RI-101 streamer, SCD-025 CD player and MP-I201 700-watt integrated amplifier. All cabling was Jorma Design.

Like last year, Murat Altuev produced highly convincing sound with their AER BD4 widebanders and valve and class D amplification for AER and the augmenting twin-ported Accuton woofers..

In the area organized by Tchernov Audio, Wolf von Langa's Chicago field-coil speakers played with Tchernov's improved D/A converter, matching cables and several tweaks. The firm's specialists later participated in a Q&A session during a full-house conference.

This year like last, the Hi-End Centre system was one of the most musical. It consisted of a TW-Acustic Raven Limited SE turntable and arm with Ikeda 9TT pickup and step-up, Ypsilon PST-100II preamplifier and Aelius II monoblocks, Peak Consult Zoltan V speakers and Acrolink cables and isolation transformer.

Audio Video Dizainas again demonstrated their massive prototype speakers but now with an Absolare Integrated Signature hybrid integrated, Esoteric Grandioso K1 SACD player and Versus Audio streamer.
