|Asia Sound Equipment’s new 1st floor showroom at Jalan Pasar. Also note that Pacific Radio is located just at the ground floor of the same building, Wisma Chia Yong.|
Asia Sound Equipment has a new showroom, located right in the heart of KL, Lot 103-1, Wisma Chia Yong, Jalan Pasar, Pudu, 55100 Kuala Lumpur is the address. It’s a 1st floor showroom, that has all of Asia Sound Equipment’s products on demo.
|Lots of audio equipment, and Beatles memorabilia on display.|
Upon entering, one can find some very tastefully bright paint jobs that only the Brit’s can offer. The showroom is man by none other than Kim, who was formerly based in the Amcorp Mall showroom, which is still operational(just in case you’re wondering). The new KL showroom is Beatles themed and one can many memorabilia on display, which are part of Kim’s personal collection.
|More hifi equipment and Beatles!|
There are two demo rooms operating here, one featured for AV surround demo, and the other for 2 chanel stereo. Amongst the brands sold by Asia sound includes the full Rega range, from turntables to electronics to speakers. Other product portfolios are Zu speakers and cables, Rogue Audio tube amplifiers , Audio Vector and Brodman speakers.

|The stereo demo room, featuring the all new range of speakers from Rega, Zu and Brodman(these are truly interesting speakers and can re-produce piano music in highly convincing fashion).|
|The Beatles in 3D too!|

We’ve been told to watch out for the following Rega products due in soon,
1) Rega Elicit R integrated amp
2) Rega Aria MM/MC switchable phono stage
3) Rega Carbon MM cartridge
4) Rega RP40 turn table
The last item is of particularly special to note as the RP40 turn table was designed to commemorate Rega’s 40th Anniversary in the hifi industry. It has a limited production of 2,500 units only, and according to Kim, all has been sold out, however Asia Sound had secure a few units for Malaysia only, so act quick if you want one.
The other more common item and ol’news is that the first batch of the RP8 turn table is finally arriving our shores next month, after it’s static display debut at KLIAVS in July, due to overwhelming world wide demand.

|Head phones galore, and all AKG!|
While at Asia Sound Equipment, also do check out their sister company called Pacific Radio, which is located on the ground floor. Pacific Radio deals mainly in the pro-audio supplies, but some of the things that caught my audiophile eye are the full range of AKG head phones on display, and for those keen on karaoke and singing, the range of Shure microphones will surely be of interest, not to mention the bewildering array of karaoke amps and studio consoles.
Anyway, Kim wants it to be know that parking is a plenty at the Wisma Chia Yong basement should one worry about such things and he can be contact at 012-2702208 for audition appointment and directions.
