It was supposed to be an iFi event at E1 Personal Audio Malaysia in Sungei Wang Plaza yesterday, but since I had already heard the iFi ZEN DAC at the earlier event in Asia Sound in Amcorp Mall, I decided to check out some IEMs.
Store manager Shaiful Anuar Sulaiman took out the Campfire Solaris 2020 (Retail price: RM6,899), the Campfire ARA 2020 (RM6,299) and an Origami Audio Silver IEM (about RM5,000) and paired them with an Astell&Kern KANN Cube DAP.
I had a fun time listening to all three IEMs and also tried different cables. Shaiful also plugged in a cable to the Astell&Kern KANN Cube’s 5-pin mini XLR connector, which greatly improved the sound quality, especially of the Origami Audio Silver IEM.
The iFi session is still on tomorrow at E1 Personal Audio. Or you can hop over to Low Yat Plaza and go to Foto Shangri-la to check out the Shanling products.
