Like T.H.E. Show at The Flamingo Hotel during the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, High End Munich has a parasitic "outboard" show, this year held at the Marriott. I went there specifically to visit Touraj Moghaddam and check out his Vertere line of turntables and especially his reference $20K+ pick-up arm.

During the 1960s, Dual, Elac/Benjamin-Miracord and Perpetuum Exner were Germany's leading turntable manufacturers and the brands best known to Americans. PE was probably the least well-distributed and more exotic of the three.

The lead photo is from last year's show. Preparing now for this year's show, which promises to be bigger and better—and last year's show was impressive in every way.

This year’s AXPONA Show was the best yet. It demonstrated that Chicago is a great place to hold a regional audio show—even if the city ignored it. It was well-attended by consumers and well-supported by local dealers and a wide sampling of manufacturers.
