Hi Kytz, unfortunately we don't have any show room elsewhere except in Kuching.
However, we do allow you to audition the speaker at your own place for 10 days and we believe this is the best way to audition the speakers. If you don't like the speakers, you can just return to us. No question asked.

FYI, we have sell good number of these speakers, and so far none is returned. :-)

That was the first version which doesn't look as aesthetic the revised one, I think personally.
FYI, the current x-ls Encores are assembled in Malaysia and the parts are still manufactured by the original manufacturers to maintain its signature. :-)

will let you guys know soon brows.gif at the moment, i'll share some info about this speaker over its predecessor which is onix xls by av123

1. Used paper port to reduce resonances
2. Used all copper terminal cup
3. Use high quality high purity inductor, capacitor and resistor in cross over.
4. Better quality MDF
5. Use 1kg/m3 micro filber glass for damping
6. Better cabinet bracing
7. Satin coating to reduce harmonic distortion radiances.

yeah.

I bought the speaker and right now powering it with a Yaqin amp, which is also bought from the same fellow. I have been to "showroom", the owner house, to listen to the speaker before I buy it.

One thing I can say for sure about the speaker is a no brainer for 1.2k. I own a pair of AE Neo 1, which I bought it with SG700 years ago. Compare to Neo, the encore cabinet is biggher and heavier, acoustically, it better in its high (warm), middle (smooth) and low register (punchy), comparing neo. One thing you will be surprise is the encore has a lot of bass.

Looking for buy another 3 to do 5.1. if I won magnum this weekend.

It is a great speaker. You won't be disappointed for the price.

In Bolehland, hifi is a luxury, it is really hard to find good performance/price gears. I hope 1 day everybody can enjoy favorite music with affordable good system.

wow, that's pretty good service flex.gif , but if I am not satisfied, I will have to bear the shipping cost, hmm still kinda big amount, the shipping cost is not cheap, and also if I return the product, I have to bear again the shipping cost? hmm.gif

Vivakarna, how would rate the bass of it? Is it relaxable? Currently I have one set powerful active speakers, bass is quite hurting, for me I am not bass head though, just an enough amount will do justice for me. What do you think?

vivakarna, I saw your another post of your placement of the speaker. You are placing them too close to the wall. I am suggesting if you can place them about 1M from the wall, you will get the right bass. Otherwise, the reflection of the wall generate uncontrolled resonance inside the speaker.

You can definitely drive it with a Lepai 2020A, but we have never tested with that yet.

We have tested with TA2024C (10W) and it sounds really good but you can't play it too loud.

The really near-perfect match is TA2022(50w). You just can believe how good they sound with the low price tag.
