KLIAVS 2015: Some beautiful things that I saw …

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

Last year, if you recall, Willy’s photos of the show gals were erased and I had to go through all the pictures in my SD card to look for shots of the gals only to find out that I had more photos of amplifiers and speakers than the beautiful gals. That got me wondering if there was anything wrong with me and I was worried as to whether I had my priorities right…

 

So this year, whenever I bumped into the show gals, I made it a point to ask them to pose for me and I took photos of them – just to prove that I am still a regular guy. Oh, by the way, there were some nice looking speakers and CD players and amplifiers too…

Oh yes, we are still posting on the Kuala Lumpur International AV Show… Now, we move our attention back to the components that matter to audiophiles – the speakers, amps and CD players.

The Devialet was so shiny that it was difficult to take a nice photo of it without its top panel acting like a mirror. It looked good and so did its remote control.
