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

Another reviewer had bought the Accuphase E-470, so I ended up reviewing the lower model, the E-370 which is a 100-watter integrated amplifier.

Press a button and the panel below the two meters will flip down slowly to reveal lots of buttons.… Read the full article
