Amid what has become commonly known as “Munich Madness”, the four days in May each year where the world's Hi-Fi industry descends on Munich, Germany for the High End show, a smaller, feeder show takes place at the Marriot Hotel from Thursday through Saturday.

Most brands take up residence at the Marriot until they can secure a space at the High End's MOC venue which year on year, is sold out. Others prefer the smaller crowds, the better room acoustics and the larger rooms available at the Marriot.

You can expect to find the exotic, the odd and unique, and the up and coming brands here. We'll save our thoughts on specific brands and products for individual stories in the coming weeks, but here's a selection of photos from Hi-Fi Deluxe, Munich 2018.

We do want to take a moment to acknowledge two Australian brands appearing separately at the show, Holton Amplifiers and new Aussie brand, M8audio. It requires an enormous amount of resources to exhibit at a show on the other side of the world, so credit to both of them.

StereoNET is reviewing the M8audio range of loudspeakers currently, so stay tuned for those. You will also get this opportunity to hear this brand for yourself at the 2018 Melbourne International Hi-Fi Show, October 12-14 at the Pullman Mercure Hotel, Albert Park. Tickets on sale (50% discount with code BESTSHOW).
