KLIAVS 2017: Day one…

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

I was already advised by an old hand to head to hifi creations’ room on the ninth floor of Sunway Putra Hotel first.

 

The main attraction there was the Yamaha NS5000, the successor to the legendary NS1000 speakers. True enough, there was already a lot of people there and I had to wait for my turn to sit in the sweet-spot chair. The speakers sounded fantastic, but it was difficult to get a good photograph of them because the glossy black piano finish was very reflective. That was a fabulous way to start my first day at the KLIAVS 2017.

 

Here are some photos of day one at the show…
