Audiophiles Gathering

We shall post the almost weekly gathering here to share the experience and joy of listening. Although the number is small but it is definitely fun.

Almost each week, there will be a specify 'menu' to 'dish out' for the gathering. Thus far, we have done comparisons between a few tube amps, a shootout of 3 reputable standmount loudspeakers, as well as pitting 3 power cords.

It has been an honour for us to host this audiophiles get together. We would also like to express our gratitude for those who have brought their beloved gears over for the 'showdown'. Lugging their prized loudspeakers such as piano finished KEF LS3/5A and the small but heavy tube amps. I am glad all of us are very open minded which make it more enjoyable.

We might also do a home visit too.

The photos that were taken earlier turned out to be too dark due to low ambient light in the room. However, we shall have a brighter light installed for photography purpose.

Room Acoustic. Is it same for Hi-Fi and HT?

Many people did ask me about this question; Is acoustic treatment for Hi-Fi same as acoustic treatment for home theater? The answer is no. There are some differences between these two.

While employing sound treatment to a room is important, one should not over do it and know the basic rule. As Art Noxon puts it:

"I'd rather listen to a mid-fi system in a high-end room than a high-end system in a mid-fi room, any day."

There are some differences between acoustic treatment for Hi-Fi and home theater. For that, I have append 2 articles on basic room treatment for your reading. I do hope that you will find it useful if you are to embark on room treatment.

1. Hi-Fi listening room

2. Home Theater

On that note, we are in the midst of upgrading our acoustic treatment for our demo room to provide an even better enjoyment to our customers.
