Rega has not stopped innovating. The British turntable specialist has launched its latest flagship model, the Planar 10 styled like its recently-launched sibling, the Planar 8.

 

Unlike the RP10, the Planar 10 does not have a two-in-one plinth. It features only a skeletal plinth which has been reduced in size even more. It also has – like the Planar 8 – a futuristic piece of acrylic to act as dust cover.… 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. 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

The impressive  demo system set up by Centre Circle during the recent KL International AV show must be the most commercially successful one for the company ever.

 

This because in the weeks after, Centre Circle has sold two pairs of the Kharma Exquisite Classique speakers. These are high-end models which cost a few hundred thousand ringgit per pair.

 

Nelson of Centre Circle said negotiations are being conducted on the sale of the VAC Statement 450 iQ monoblock amps and the VAC Statement preamp that featured in the demo system.… Read the full article

Many Malaysian audiophiles have been wondering what happened to the Yamaha NS-5000 speakers that took the market by storm back in 2017 when they were launched during that year’s KL International AV Show because they were not seen at the AV shows after that.

 

Well, they don’t have to wonder any more because the Yahama NS-5000 speakers along with the matching C-5000 preamp and M-5000 power amp are on demo at RAVE Systems on the ground floor of PNB Darby Park, Jalan Binjai, off Jalan Ampang in Kuala Lumpur.… Read the full article

KLIAVS 2019: Best of…hi-fi systems

Despite the fact that the KLIAVS 2019 was held in a different hotel which posed lots of problems to exhibitors in terms of room acoustics, it was quite a successful show in terms of overall sound and image quality.

 

This year, I feel that there is no overall winner simply because the exhibitors really became competitive and set up dazzling top-class systems to try to outdo each other. I chatted with several audiophiles who were at the show and read the comments on Facebook and there were differing views on which room had the best hi-fi system.… 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
