Meet us in Munich High-End 2019

We all need certainties in life, and for us of Volumio Team, attending Munich High-End fair has been one of those, since 4 years.

High-End Munich is the world's biggest and most important Hi-Fi trade fair. Everyone (Audio manufacturers, designers, distributors, press) is there. For us it has always been a very important appointment since it's a unique moment to spend time with our OEM Partners, discuss new projects and cooperations, see the latest trends in action and listen to some very remarkable audio systems.

But this time, it will be different. This time, it will be special.

We are so proud to announce that, for the first time, Volumio will join Munich High-End show as an exhibitor! Yes, we will have our own booth in Halle 1, stand A21!

And that's not the last surprise we have for you, as we will show not one but 2 world premieres and some really interesting previews. Let's see them all:

VOLUMIO MOTIVO WORLD PREMIERE

It's well over one year since we started working on a new, groundbreaking streamer. Its name is Motivo.

It’s a joint cooperation between Volumio, visionary engineering firm Yottamusic and world-class industrial design firm Design Narratives.

We gathered together around a simple vision: to create the next-generation Audiophile Streamer, with a completely new approach to audio processing and with the ultimate usability.

Motivo in Italian means Meaning. And Motivo is our statement to what enjoying music means to us.

You will know everything about Motivo in Munich, where we will display for the first time our early prototypes.

Did I already mention it is a thing of beauty? Here's a sneak preview for you.

 

 

VOLUMIO LINEO WORLD PREMIERE

You asked for it, we made it. We are ready to bring to market a Linear Power Supply, designed to give the Volumio Primo (and all 5V apparatus) the cleanest possible power.

You will have the chance to see it paired with the Primo in Munich.

NEW USER INTERFACE REDESIGN

Our beloved user interface has been serving us wonderfully over those years, but we thought it was time to give it a nice refreshing.

Following the many suggestions from our community and our OEM partners we are performing an overhaul of the User Interface structure and adding quite a lot of usability tweaks. We are also laying the groundworks for an extended navigation capability, leveraging an all-new metadata system.

For those attending, we will be showing a sneak preview of the new interface at our booth. And here's there's another sneak preview for you.

 

WHERE TO FIND US

Our booth @ Munich High-End is located in Halle 1, stand A21 

Munich High End starts Thursday 9th May and ends Sunday 12th, at MOC Munchen

If you’re just attending the fair, just come to our booth to see all our new previews and have a chat with us.

And for those wishing to listen to Motivo and Primo via exquisite Headphone systems, we will have a listening position at AudioValve's booth, located nearby in Halle 1 stand B05.

Volumio got a brand new website

Ladies and gentlemen. You might have noticed that Volumio got a brand new website!

There were many reasons why we choose to refresh our online spot a bit, and here they are.

The main and most important purpose of our new website is to serve our community better.

What's new in our brand new website

One shortcoming of our old website was that information was hard to find, and sometimes confusing. We received many suggestions from the community asking to improve navigations through the website. The subject people were complaining the most is that pieces of information related to MyVolumio were hard to find. Our solution? Create a 101 section of all things Volumio here.

 

With this new redesign, we want to offer visitors a clear overview of what Volumio is and why it's great for their music. Also, we wanted to explain in detail what MyVolumio is, how it works and give a clear and transparent overview of the different plans.  And yes, a clear and immediate of the pricing options, see them here.

On top of that, we added a coherent styling for all our Dropshipping products, to offer our partners in the shop an even nicer showcase and help them get their excellent products showcased as they deserve. We also hope that this new Shop experience will help the least expert to have a clear idea on which device might best suit their needs. So, without further do, head on the Shop page.

As you know, Volumio could not be there without its dedicated and passionate team. We're really excited to announce that even more awesome people joined us in the last few months, and we thought they deserved a place of honor in our Team page. Get to know us at the Team page.

Another great area of revamp went into the OEM page. We had huge satisfactions this year with our Oem Program, cooperating with cutting edge Audio Brands like Pro-Ject Audio Systems and Mini-DSP. What a better occasion to showcase what we achieved toghether than refreshing the OEM Page? Check it out here.

Last: we want to bring Volumio to exciting new levels, and to do that we want to attract every music lover out there. The more we are, the better.
So, yes, we went the extra mile with aesthetics, hoping to please the eyes of who's looking for their ideal Audiophile Music Player.

Enjoy!
