Everybody knows that when it comes to a full blown cinema experience, nothing beats a projector. With the advent of high resolution content further augmented with High Dynamic Range (HDR, for the uninitiated), it seems to make almost perfect sense to go gigantic this time around. With the current sea of offerings available in the market, a big screen stalwart, Epson, throws its hat in the ring with the EH-TW9400 4K PRO-UHD Projector.… Read the full article

“What exactly is neutral?” That question popped up in my mind when I reviewed the Furutech DPS-4.1 because it had a sonic signature that was different than what I was used to hearing with my own power cable using silver-plated high-purity copper with the Furutech FI-50 NCF plugs.

 

In comparison, my power cable sounded brighter which resulted in a more detailed sound, but it was also leaner, but more transparent.… Read the full article

The Furutech plugs
These are indeed the best plugs in the market.

 

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

From the outset, I must say that I hate doing reviews after which I end up being the proud but poorer owner of the components reviewed. This is such a review.

 

I have been using the Furutech FI-11M (G) and FI-11 N1 (G) US plug and IEC power connector for many years terminated to a DIY power cable comprising four wires braided in a round braid with a ground wire coiling around the braid.… Read the full article

Pushing Above the Competition

by Venoth Nair

 

To usher in the new age of AV which currently revels with the birth of new visual formats such as HDR and Dolby Vision, the surround component has also been given a new flavour with the introduction of Dolby Atmos. Atmos which is an object-based surround format extends the periphery of surround sound by adding overhead channels to mix. These overhead channels introduce a sensational feeling of being in the thick of it, especially during epic sequences in blockbuster movies.… Read the full article

This year was not good to me when it came to AV as I was bogged down with work during the KL International AV Show 2019.

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
