KLIAVS 2018: Best of…

By | August 8th, 2018|Categories: Av2day|Tags: , , , |

I can only recall queuing up to hear the demo of the Audionote Ongaku integrated amplifier hosted by Audionote founder Hiroyasu Kondo himself and also to hear the Sennheiser Orpheus headphones (the original model that was launched back in 1991).… Read the full article
