SIAS Seoul International Audio Show report


As requested here is the SIAS 2019 report with 110+ high-resolution photos to enjoy...

It has grown to become the largest exhibition along with the CES in the United States, the Munich Audio Show in Germany, and the Hong Kong High-End Audio Show. The number of visitors has exceeded the level of the Tokyo audio show in 2014. The 2019 audio show was the largest audio show with more than 160 brands from 54 companies.

Herr von Wolkenstein was a member of South Tyrol rural aristocracy... a bard and a traveler, his broad journeys led him from Syria to Turkey to Burgundy and beyond... Look at his eyes, so well captured on the painting... these eyes saw the world and learned a lot! His Lieder (songs) talk about these travels and about love as most of the songs of any vintage do... I already had a disc on EMI Reflexe series and appreciated the melodies and instruments blend: lute, hand drums, bells, recorder, and voices...
