Works for me in here. It's an event rather than it be in General and interesting to look at the show through a 'Linnies' eyes - i.e. Sunbeam.

You'll notice there are members here that combine Linn products with other gear. It is therefore an event that is of interest to many people here. You can choose not to read it if it is of no interest to you.

There is nothing to say the Event part of the forum is Linn specific.

The entire forum is in Linn Forums / Linn / xxxx including a General HiFi which is Linn Forums / Linn / General HiFi - so should that be Linn only as well?

Events is Linn Forums / Linn / Events

Music is Linn Forums / Linn / Music - should this be Linn label only music?

There are lots of non-Linn events in this subforum, can't see that any of them have ever caused the mods to take action.

Interestingly, the thread has, through the direction of the discussion, complied with this one: "Linn Musical Events around the world - post here to promote or request an event!"

There will probably be plenty of seasoned Linn owners and even more people who are wowed by all the shiny stuff, but a lot of people who prefer understated esthetics and have not ever heard of Linn? I doubt it.

Did you miss the bit about it being the European industry event Tin? Its only partially about punters coming through the door - its more about distributors, press and dealers communing together. Perhaps some brands expect the mountain to come to Mohammed?

Many of the punters will be happy to pay their 14 Euros per day just to be able to have a listen to the stuff on offer and are unlikely to ever afford it, but brand awareness has great value. Also, look more closely and you'll see some tasteful gear in there, amongst the bling and cable lifters.

One brand there was having discussions with a customer last year who has consequently placed an order for 5 pairs of speakers. At 440k per pair. I'm not sure how any European manufacturer can afford not to be at that kind of event.
I didn't, but I know that Linn often invites dealers over to Scotland, and I've been a couple of times at events where Linn visits the dealers. So going to Munich won't add much in that respect.

If I had a lot of money I'd buy my kit visiting Scotland, not Munich. If a manufactorer isn't able to invite those kind of customers, sure, a show like Munich makes more sense.

As for the distributors and press, obviously Linn has a different opinion than you. So, who knows, maybe they're right. Wink
I agree that there are some less blingy devices in your pictures but it still is all about showcasing hardware.

The Katalysted 350s would look very humble as we're talking about a 10 year old speaker, an unassuming slim box about the same age, and a few cat-5 cables.
I don't expect that the press would be very impressed.
You can't expect anyone to have a good listen to all the different setups, how many were there? Listening is very exhausting if you want to make honest comparisons, so it's all about 'first impressions', and as looks are a major part of first impressions...
