I had never seen John Yew, the boss of CMY Audio & Visual, in such a happy mood for a long time. I am not sure if it was the wine or the occasion that made him very cheerful, but there he was playing the role of the perfect host inviting his guests to pose for photos, tuck into the refreshments, drink more wine and go inside his Sungei Wang Plaza showroom to listen to a live musical performance.… Read the full article

The media launch of this year’s Kuala Lumpur International AV Show was held yesterday without a hitch – even though yours truly, who was supposed to be among the panellists, made a rather late but grand entrance.

 

In a function room of Vistana Hotel, off Jalan Ipoh, where this year’s AV show will be held, exhibitors met the organiser Dick Tan of 3Dot Events Sdn Bhd and the General Manager of Vistana Hotel, Emmanuel Olazo.… Read the full article

There has been a change in venue for this year’s Kuala Lumpur International AV Show. It will be held in Vistana Hotel, off Jalan Ipoh.

 

The show will be held on 26-28 July.

 

It is understood that the reason for the change of venue is the drastic increase in rental costs at Sunway Putra Hotel, where it was held for the past two years.

 

A media launch of the KLIAVS 2019 will be held on Monday afternoon at Vistana Hotel by the event organiser 3Dot Events.… Read the full article

Neat Acoustics’ Iota Alpha speakers make up a little package of fun.

 

They are small floorstanders, taller than an LP leaning against it, but shorter than some bookshelf speakers. The speaker measures 17.7″ high X  7.8″ wide X 6.3″ deep. The top bit of the front baffle slopes backwards to house the bass/mid driver and an EMIT type planar magnetic tweeter.… Read the full article

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

Size matters in so far as Malaysian hi-fi and AV showrooms are concerned. Soon after Perfect Hi-Fi launched its new and bigger showroom in IOI Mall in Puchong, (see http://av2day.com/2018/11/perfect-hi-fis-new-showroom-launched-in-grand-ceremony/)  CMY Audio & Visual has extended its showroom in Sungei Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur.

 

CMY boss John Yew said his Sungei Wang showroom has almost doubled in size to 5,000 sq ft. Previously it was on 2,900 sq ft of retail space.… Read the full article

Several AV enthusiasts were treated to a visual feast at the AV Designs’ showroom off Jalan Kuching, Kuala Lumpur, last Thursday as the world’s first 8K e-shift JVC home theatre projector was launched in Malaysia. The AV enthusiasts also had the honour of being the first Malaysians to watch the JVC DLA-NX9 projector in action.

 

To make us salivate a bit, James Tan had set up a 4K system using JVC DLA-N5, which is a native 4K projector, in a smaller room.… Read the full article

I have heard ATC’s active speakers before in Hi-Way Laser’s showroom and at the KL International AV Shows, but I have never heard them in my house before.

 

Kenny Sin of Hi-Way Laser made arrangements to deliver a pair of ATC SCM40 Active speakers to my house more than a week ago. Along with them came two long (3 meters) Furutech power cords, two (also 3 meters) Cardas Golden Reference XLR interconnects and the matching ATC CA2 preamp.… Read the full article
