KLIAVS 2015: Day two in photos…

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

Since I spent much time on Level 4 where the AV2day.com Help Desk was located, I walked around the floor and popped into many of the showrooms again. Since I was seated outside Absolute Sound’s Focal showroom, I popped in a few times to check out the new Focal Sopra No 2 speakers. I also went downstairs to Level 3 to have a look at the Epson laser projector since Willy had sung praises about it.

 

I also popped into the Clarisys room on Level 3 as an audiophile had mentioned to me that the full-ribbon speakers sounded good.

 

Our Help Desk was just outside the Focal room , so I popped in to listen to the new Focal Sopra No 2 speakers.

The Clarisys speakers were full-ribbons and are styled after the Apogees, and they sounded transparent and had great bass slam.

Selling hhis audiophile CDs and LPs was Todd Gardinkle, the man behind MA recordings. Todd is a very pleasant man and he will readily autograph the CD or LP that you buy.

In the Epson room, the Life of Pi was being screened. I must say the Epson EH-LS 10000 home laser projector offered absolutely stunning picture quality.
