X-rated Fi? – September 22 and 23 are the dates when the Dutch XFI premium audio show opens its doors to the public. The Koningshof in Veldhoven near Eindhoven is conveniently located not just for Dutch visitors but also audio enthusiasts from nearby Germany and Belgium. More than 60 rooms will showcase hundreds of brands from big names to innovative newcomers, among those many originating from The Netherlands. That XFI in its 8 years of existence has become the show in the low lands is due to the amount of product premieres. Examples this year will be Metrum’s new baby DAC, a brand-new speaker by B&W and one by Klipsch. The latter is still covered by veils like "something" Linn will introduce. Next to speakers very big and small there is ample room reserved for the other way of listening: the headphone. A dedicated Headspace will showcase a plethora of brands. Also this year the tradition of listening to live music continues and on every show day there will be two concerts. For those who still are or just recently got into vinyl, there will be plenty on offer too. A so-called Vinyl Route will lead the followers along the many exhibits of turntables and associated gear. Of course there will also be various options to acquire music on vinyl. 6moons senior contributors Marja & Henk will tour the event to provide a report for those who could not attend.
