I heard it. It was good, but far from being best in show IMHO, and seems a stretch to call it the world's best system. It had incredible presence and sense of realism, but could sound harsh on some of the higher vocals. That could be a whole load of things, so am not putting the system down in any way.

What made them harsh could have been that they were using older Grandinote gear last year with those speakers at that show. Now they have new Grandinote gear that is said to be much better!

Here's their much smaller Grandinote Mach 2P speakers with one of their new Grandinote Supremo Integrated amps and new Grandinote Volta mk2 in a large room...BIG Natural Sound!

Many at the Munich Show thought this Grandinote system was best of show...has anyone heard this all Grandinote System ?

I heard the complete system last year @Grandinote in Italy (together with the German Distributor).
Sound was great!
The Grandinote Genesi Preamp is on the way , the Demone amps will follow soon, @home I will get a better understanding of the sonic capabilities.

Hey guys, Nice thread :)
Thanks for linking the Youtube video. The Mach2p are incredible "little" speakers.

Shakti Im sure you will be happy once you get to listen full loom Grandinote :) Let us know how you go.

Regarding Best in the world. Well that is loaded. But I will say Grandinote performance is of the highest calibre.

Munich 2019 will see further developments and even better better performance. Last year was entry level Shinai integrated.

Exciting times !

<< The Grandinote gear almost ruined me: Although I heard other good-sounding systems on Friday, few were as musical or emotionally powerful as this one. I sat down just as the people running the dem put on the Weavers' famous live version of "Guantanamera": the playback quality was exquisite—musical, emotionally powerful, and sneakily dynamic, without apparent flaw. Pete Seeger, a man whose sanctimony kept me from fully enjoying his music as the years went by, was in youthful fine voice here, and the instrumental accompaniment was tactile and just plain real-sounding. On the next selection, the late Sandy Denny sounded similarly real and no less emotionally powerful: I was starting to cry, and it was only 10:30 in the morning!<<

In Munich Grandinote had the new Mach 9 Carbon body on Demo. Was a very nice Demo, a lot of dynamics and speed. I liked it a lot. :)

I had the chance to listen to the demo at Munich too. It was nice: good resolution and image. But a bit cold for me like many of Munich demos. Not my taste but I can understand that someone can like them.

I heard these in Munich and again, like last year, was a lot to like - real impact and presence. Issue still the same that when pushed can sound a bit hard, but again not a great room (was in Hifi Deluxe this year rather than MOC).

Agreed...they sounded very good indeed in Munich; when he pushed them beyond the room's ability to host them and the speaker/setup's limits, they became hard & edgy but I suspect the small room had an awful lot to do with it. Great guys hosting the room, alot of fun to talk to, no 'attitude' or elitist feel, unlike quite a few rooms there or any audio show, clearly only loved the music itself as the real story and the gear and speakers were a means to an end.
