KLIAVS 2019: Vintage gear on show

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

At the coffeehouse in the lobby of Hotel Vistana, a row of vintage hi-fi components was on display. These brought back memories for many older audiophiles who went for the Kuala Lumpur International AV Show last weekend.

 

I remember with fondness at least one of the components on display there – the Rega Planar 2 with S-shaped tonearm. I bought that from Trikay when they were still in Asiajaya shopping mall and later traded it in for the Rega Planar 3 with RB300 tonearm which I am still using today.

 

Here are photos of the vintage gear:
