High End 2023 - Métronome Technology presents Métronome AQWO 2

First and foremost, of course, is the world premiere of the Métronome AQWO 2, according to the French high-end hi-fi manufacturer Métronome Technologie, but the company also has other solutions in its luggage for the High End 2023 in Munich, such as the Métronome Le Streamer and outstanding products from the Kalista brand.

Story Highlights
  • Métronome Technologie will use the High End 2023 to present the latest generation of the Métronome AQWO, the Métronome AQWO 2.

Métronome Technologie does not yet want to reveal too much about the new Métronome AQWO 2, which will celebrate its world premiere at the High End 2023 in Munich. It is clear, however, that the presentation of this innovation will not be the only one that the French company is preparing in the Bavarian metropolis in mid-May.

The visitors will also be able to admire innovations from the Métronome Classica range, namely the Métronome Le Streamer, and solutions from the Kalista brand will also be on show, as promised in the run-up to the trade fair.

World premiere of the Métronome AQWO 2

Of course, the new Métronome AQWO 2 will be in the spotlight at the High End 2023, after all, this solution has always been considered a particularly important one in the product portfolio of the French digital specialist. Alongside the Métronome Digital Sharing Series and the Métronome Classica Series, the Métronome AQWO even represents its own product group. Up to now, there were three systems: the Métronome AQWO as a combination of CD and SACD player with an excellent DAC, the Métronome t|AQWO as a pure transport and the Métronome c|AQWO as a D/A converter. The presentation at the High End 2023 will show how the new product generation Métronome AQWO 2 Range will be positioned.

“AQWO was developed and launched in 2018, was immediately successful among audiophiles and quickly became a bestseller. AQWO 2 will come in a similar but completely new chassis, with 100% new electronic design, new DAC processor, new firmware, improved touchscreen and streaming inside! And of course, our famous tube output option will still be included.”
