Taking its que from its award-winning forebear, the original AudioLab 8000 integrated that was first released in 1983 to win an undisputable place in the hearts of audiophiles worldwide, Audiolab’s recently released 6000A bears many award-winning features of the original but is much more fully digitally equipped to better compete at the current market place where digital source rule.

 

With a shape, size and fascia that looks much like the original 8000 series, the 6000A measures 445 x 65.5 x 300mm and weighs a sturdy 8kg.… Read the full article

The media launch of this year’s Kuala Lumpur International AV Show was held yesterday without a hitch – even though yours truly, who was supposed to be among the panellists, made a rather late but grand entrance.

 

In a function room of Vistana Hotel, off Jalan Ipoh, where this year’s AV show will be held, exhibitors met the organiser Dick Tan of 3Dot Events Sdn Bhd and the General Manager of Vistana Hotel, Emmanuel Olazo.… Read the full article

There has been a change in venue for this year’s Kuala Lumpur International AV Show. It will be held in Vistana Hotel, off Jalan Ipoh.

 

The show will be held on 26-28 July.

 

It is understood that the reason for the change of venue is the drastic increase in rental costs at Sunway Putra Hotel, where it was held for the past two years.

 

A media launch of the KLIAVS 2019 will be held on Monday afternoon at Vistana Hotel by the event organiser 3Dot Events.… Read the full article

The sound of music, taking in KLIAV 2018’s finest

by Venoth Nair

 

Picking up where we left off, I find myself heading to the next big player on the Meet on 9 function hall area. Known for their superlative offerings in home cinema, AV Designs is also a force to be reckoned with when it comes to 2 channel straight firing audio. This year, their system comprising of PMC speakers paired to Bryston electronics was further elevated with the inclusion of Linn’s quintessential LP12 turntable.… Read the full article

Many videophiles who attended the recent KL International AV Show 2018 would have noticed that the competition among the big projector players appear to be heating up, with what appeared to be an almost ‘no holds barred’ attempt by all present to carve the biggest slice possible out of the fast-growing home theatre projection market.

 

As such most of the key home theatre exhibits reported an enthusiastic jump in videophiles acquiring home theatre projectors.… Read the full article

KLIAVS 2018: Best of…

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

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

After much deliberation and having read the comments on Facebook, I have realised that my list of “Best of KLIAVS 2018” more or less is the same as the lists that some audiophiles have posted on Facebook.

 

A special mention must be made about people queuing up to hear a demo. This took place outside the Movee Space room and this is something that was not seen at the KLIAV shows in recent years. 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
