At a recent launch in Kuala Lumpur Epson Malaysia, helmed by its Managing Director, Daisuke Hori introduced what it said is the world’s smallest home theatre projector, the EF-100.

 

Though compact the EF-100, which is available in either white or a combination black and bronze appears not to have sacrificed much in the way of performance.

 

The most outstanding feature of the EF-100 is its laser powered systems which negates the use of traditional lamps and offers up to 20,000 hours with essentially no loss of light output.… Read the full article

My KL International AV Show 2019 Experience

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. But nonetheless I still freed myself for 4 hours at least to get there and dip my foot into the affair, what with the new venue and all. 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

Not many people may be aware of this but there was one common component among the top three AV demo rooms involving AV Designs, Maxx AV and Sound Fusion. They were all using the JVC DLA-N5 native 4K projector.

 

The JVC DLA-N5 offers 4096 x 2160 native resolution and also provides crucial HDR10 and HLG gamma support.

 

As with all JVC home theatre projectors the N5 features the company’s proprietary D-ILA picture format device firing into an all-glass lens.… Read the full article

KLIAVS 2019: Best of…AV systems

By | August 2nd, 2019|Categories: Av2day|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

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

KLIAVS 2019: Coping with bad room acoustics

By | July 31st, 2019|Categories: Av2day|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

Last weekend’s KL International AV Show was held at a new venue – Vistana Hotel – and the exhibitors had to cope with the different and challenging room acoustics, especially those who booked the hotel rooms.

 

As the hotel rooms were shaped almost like a cube with a squarish floor-plan, the exhibitors had issues trying to solve the bass boom factor. Many of the systems on demo suffered from bass boom. For example, the Dong Fong/Audio Note Malaysia room which featured the Brinkmann turntable, a Vitus integrated amp and the very large standmount Graham Audio LS5/8 speakers sounded good, but the boomy bass spoilt the listening experience.… Read the full article

KLIAVS 2019: Part three…

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

Today, I visited the better-sounding rooms again and I have been extremely impressed by a pre and power amp – the Nagra HD preamp and HD monoblock power amp.

 

The Swiss-made Nagra are expensive, but they are super high-end and are in the same league as the FM Acoustics, Soulution and CH Precision. Are the Nagra HD components better than the competitors? I don’t know, but in Perfect Hi-Fi’s system, the Nagras made the Sonus Faber floorstanders sound so dynamic and fast that I immediately realised I was listening to something really great.… Read the full article

Today I heard a few systems – both two-channel music and home theatre – that would surely end up in the list of ‘Best of Show’. I also saw and heard for the first time in Malaysia the omnidirectional Muraudio Domain Omni PX2 which I had encountered at the Munich High End show in 2017.

 

There is another pair of omnidirectional speakers at the AV show – the Avantages Audio Cesar in CMY Audio & Visual’s large exhibition space on the third floor of Vistana Hotel, the venue of the AV show.… Read the full article
