At Munich High End 2013 German manufacturer AMG (Analog Manufaktur Germany) introduced a new 9" version of its innovative tone arm that the company has been packaging with its Viella turntable. You can see cutaways of the arm's innards in the CES 2013 show report.
Reinhard Thöress's point-to-point wired hybrid JFET/vacuum tube powered phono preamp features five phono inputs, plus variable RIAA that allows you to adjust variances from the RIAA curve at the time constant "knees" of the curve.
Just concluded day two of High End 2013 in Munich. The MOC Convention Center was packed. It's a large venue sort of like a somewhat smaller Javits Center in New York City. Not all of it was used for the show but much of it was, including an enormous ground level space and much of the second and third floor atrium area.
