KLIAVS 2015: Day three in photos…

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

On the third day, I walked down the stairs from the hotel lobby and the first person I saw was CMY boss John Yew chatting with Darrell Huggins from QED. After snapping a few photos, Darrell showed me how the QED AIRLOC termination system worked by crimping the wires together.

 

I popped into the Panasonic room and found out that it also had a laser projector which was also quite good. Then I took the lift to the eighth floor to continue the exploration of sonic highs of this year’s KLIAVS.

Audio Art had set up a system comprising Soul Note CD player, amp and Adam speakers. This sounded surprisingly good and the outstanding component turned out to be the SA710 Near Field Monitor amp which pumped out all of 10 watts of pure class A power.
