Munich HiEnd show 2017
“Eye Candy Galore! “What the F+%$!!” says John as we scrolled into this suite! “Yep, my dear friend, this is what High End Munich is all about” I replied. Not just outlandish but CRAZY looking and good sounding in every way imaginable! Crazy good is exactly how I’d describe both the look and sound of Tune Audio’s 3-way Avaton horned loudspeakers…”
“Tune Audio – one of the more original and intriguing visual and sound systems. ”
“The system as a whole was hugely dynamic and definitely in the top five rooms of the show …”
” … the new Avaton three way horns are even more gigantic and the sound the sound was fantastic and incredibly dynamic…really a case of the actual listening experience matching up to the visual impact of the system…”
“On the way to Tune Audio, whose horns represent a personal highlight every year … already with the first notes I sink into bliss in the second row of chairs – voices, especially women’s voices can hardly make a horn better.”
“I felt like I was in candy store. Everything looked colourful, mouthwatering, and sugary… the sound was also drawing me into the sweet spot for an extended listening session. Another room of horn delights was having it’s way with me at High End in Munich. This time it was Tune Audio who was demoing the premier of the gorgeous three-way, horn-loaded Avaton loudspeaker …”

“A spectacle in all senses, and for all senses. Loved it — and all very well done.”
Part Time Audiophile
“The Trafomatic Audio Elysium amps, Tune Audio Amina & Rockna Wavedream made lovely, natural big sounds at MOC 2016. It was playing Nat King Cole & the Star Wars sound track as I sat there, mesmerized by the vocal performance and thrilled by the cinematic dynamics of the John Williams composition. Certainly up there with all the Best Sound of Show at MOC 2016!”
“The Tune Audio Anima room is a perennial favorite of mine at the Munich show, as they rarely fail to deliver less than really good sound. They also …”
“Some large systems with Tune Audio speakers pavilions that makes us enter a new acoustic dimension, these pavilions give back life to the trumpet of Miles Grand. natural that reinvents itself, the sound stage is just breathtaking.”
République du Son!
“And the sound? Tube only in wood. Receive similar to the appearance of a very interesting, but rather for connoisseurs.”
“One cannot make up one’s mind whether to look or listen. Does it sound good because it all looks so exotic and warm? Musical, relaxed, easy on the ear and eye-catching, indeed. Unless I was hypnotized by the tube glow, my notes read A.”
“Where price really was no issue, the Trafomatic/Tune Audio room was the best way to go.”
“In Tune Audio, a sound spectacle still vibrant and grandiose.”
“Tune Audio Anima horn loudspeaker wet an audiophile’s dream of audio nirvana. Well, horn speakers may not suit everyone’s taste (that I do agree), but this set up is a dreamer’s dream. The sound is mesmerizing, seductive and easily assimilative. Yes, the tones and bells were surreal enough that you will ask the question, are you serious?! They are that great even at show condition…I enjoyed them 3 times”
Mono & Stereo
“The rather fascinating-looking and sounding system was …”
“One of the absolute highlights of the show for me with my only regret being I couldn’t stay longer and enjoy.”

If someone little tub, go ahead – Tune Auio Anima supported, by the horn subwoofer driven by Pulse famous for its musicality and recognizable design electronics Mod Wrigta could shake half of the exhibition. Apparently KWA 150 Signature does not belong to giants, but with the columns of the effectiveness of 109 dB when you turn on the AC / DC converter generates offered truly stadium volume levels and perhaps only by “marine ropes” Signal Projects system did not remove himself from the ground. Word Avantgarde are worthy opponent and considering that the aforementioned. system offered not only hellish power, but finesse, the result of such a duel would many a surprise.
It’s likely that the massive ModWright transistor amp overdamped his light-membrane drivers with their powerful motors a bit. Knowing what the Anima were capable of, I wasn’t troubled. This still was very fine musical and very meaty sound like Boenicke and soundkaos, simply scaled up for a bigger space. It only lacked ultimate resolution and airiness (i.e. some ‘hifi sound’ qualities which one ultimately hopes to clone atop the mandatory musical foundation of tone mass and dynamics). Dan Wright’s gear of course was dead quiet into these noise-tracking transducers to credit his consummate design chops.
Tune-Audio is your Anima horns, and Pulse Subwoofer very successfully weaves with ModWright Instruments electronics. Speed, openness and frightening natural stage adorned sound. Certainly the best edition of Anima that I have had the opportunity to experience.

Relatively new to me were the 32k Tune Audio Anima horn-loaded loudspeakers driven by the Lars II amp. The Animas were coupled to a huge 15k downward-firing, horn-loaded Anima subwoofer that blended very well with the main speakers. The system sounded fantastic on concert grand – very natural with superb timbre and scale. It was also sensational on trumpet, choir, and organ. Indeed, the new Avantgardes aside (I couldn’t get in to hear them – the room was that crowded!), these may be the best horn speaker I’ve ever heard! They were certainly BOS contenders.
The Absolute Sound – Jonathan Valin
…was in my opinion one of the most interesting alliances of the show.
6moons – Joel Chevassus
One of the standout rooms for me. The sound in the room was very impressive indeed being deep, controlled and insightful and “sweet” with solo instruments my notes say beautiful! Definitely a sound I could live with…
A sound massive, large, grand …”
I was very impressed with the sound of Tune Audio’s Anima (32k), three way fully horn loaded loudspeakers from Greece; they produced an open, dynamic and uncompressed sound that was naturally presented much like live music.

Prime review – 6moons
It legitimizes the lone driver with rear horn-loading and higher efficiency by stripping away valid complaints. With that it renews promise and modernizes relevance. An award is in order as is a standing ovation…

Eye Candy! The highly efficient Tune Audio Anima horn loudspeakers (109 dB) of Greece, and their new actively driven sub nicknamed the “Pulse” were driven by a pair of Aries Cerat huge mono amps to impressive results. No, I didn’t get the chance to listen at length this year due to this room being so overly busy. But from the short time spent, I could tell there was a lot to like in these outlandishly designed components.

Tune Audio showed their Anima 3-way horns with active Pulse horn-loaded subwoofer. Electronics were by Aries Cerat. This was my favorite system by far. It was wildly impractical and desirous of space and funds I don’t have of course. But that’s the fun of attending shows. One makes encounters of the 4th kind which, though short-lived, confirm what’s achievable to reset personal goals at home. I’d been impressed with Tune Audio already at their first showing during the Athen hifi show. In a rather larger space in Munich this first impression merely compounded. Best Sound of the Show? From what I heard -which was a small fraction- absolutely.

I’ve auditioned the Aries Cerat Exsequor Reference tube amplifier paring with Tuneaudio horn speakers; the sound is extreme clean, transparent and dynamic.
6moons – Joel Chevassus
Another of our favorite heart. Strength. Matter, grain rendering.
Tune Audio horn and electronic Cerat Aries: the Palme d’Or in the presentation esoteric, but also for musical performances of the highest quality.
Tune Audio Anima horn (right) combined with Aries Cerat amplification was entirely beside the best in the show.
#1 best sound of the show

Munich HiEnd show 2010
The Anima from Greek manufacturer Tune Audio driven by Cosmos tube amps from the same stable, managed to overcome many of the limitations of its location to make very agreeable sounds. The Anima claimed to be mechanically time-aligned, certainly sounded more coherent than many.
Stereophile August 2010 – Markus Sauer
Athens HiEnd show 2010
In my opinion was the best sound of the show.
