Admittedly, doing so was a double-edged sword as, I was ecstatic to get a taste but leaving the event left me wanting more with no capacity to quench my thirst.… Read the full article

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

And now there are three…It used to be a battle between two AV specialists – AV Designs vs Maxx AV – for the coveted ‘Best of Show’ award. Of course, once a while, Audio Art from Ipoh would join in the fray.

 

But last year, really serious competition emerged in the form of Sound Fusion from Kuching, Sarawak. Last year, Sound Fusion’s Tan Chung Wei collaborated with his West Malaysian distributor Movee Space to hold demos at the KL International AV Show and it was a huge success with long queues of AV enthusiasts forming outside the room for the chance to experience his demo.… Read the full article
