But my biggest concern is, the speakers at audition room, is it identical to what you get from commercial purchase, well there is no way you can check the speakers at audition, they can put a reference speakers there, very fishy sweat.gif  doh.gif

Snake oil or not, it has always been a willing buyer and willing seller basis.

Spending RM13,999 on a AK380 is not purely on how good it sound compared with the rest. It is simply I can afford to splurge on the difference, no matter how small compared with other players brows.gif

A Ferrari can only do 110km/h on the highway so can the Myvi sweat.gif

1. during AV fest, you have to expect rooms to be treated to bring out the best they can......resellers rent the room...therefore they too need to cover cost by selling their system....anyone willing to donate a room for free demo?

2. if the system performed poorly in the room, don't think you will buy...am i right?

3. knowing the fact that room acoustics do play up 50% of the sound whether its at the showroom or at home......if you buy a system after audition in a proper acoustic room, then you setup the new setup in your living hall without proper acoustics....blame the equipment and seller???
yeah bloody snake oil ain't it

4. during the fest, the systems are properly run in and warmed up......when you buy BINB, don't expect to sound the same.....

5. every reseller will demo their most profitable system and margins....if i were to make a living out of this....i would demo something i make the most.... who's in business to lose money??? You??? This AV Fest is to demo the latest HT and sound systems by businesses......this is not a forum gathering NGO....this is reality right?

6. if you plan to buy something......check pricing everywhere....this is 101....

7. in the room, there are other things you need to vary off....curtains, softer finishing walls, carpets....then room tuning, cabling, power banks....and lots of other secrets...

my system at home went to a different level after shifting the system from the hall into a proper dimension room with minimal acoustic treatment....
same system in different room....you can't imagine the change

haters gonna say snake oil

1. USD vs MYR as we all know...is in a bad situation.....the big boys needs to clear stock, therefore its a matter of how you nego your deal....prices going up not because of GST but because forex.....i was surprised with the Musical Paradise MK501 price...used to be 4k++ and then due to forex, it shot up to 6k. This is based on direct online purchase price.

2. i usually buy smallish stuffs during fest....like CDs....some hifi accessories for the fun of it....like power sockets, tuning fuses and etc just to test out whether it has impact to sound.....
now....if you are really shopping for hifi or AV....the difference could be the installation cost....unless you know DIY.....
if you install ceiling mount projector...can you DIY the bracket?

3. do not rush into buying....hifi is a journey....not a short term game

The strong USD is a big impact. MYR already lost about 17% of its value since 4Q last year.

Hushymushy, going on Fri?

My heart drops whenever the exchange rate drop. Making our money not worth a lot. Have to exchange and keep our money in other currency like GBP or USD. Or we can buy in Euro to keep for now.

Susah...

Now go Cambodia also heart pain, as they use USD daily.

As a flagship planar headphone, actually it is much lighter than Audeze and Abyss. smile.gif
HiFiMAN HE-1000 480g
Audeze LCD-3 550g
Abyss 1266 660g cry.gif

Oppo PM-3 should be the lightest planar headphone. Only 320g. But it is a portable headphone lah. smile.gif
Full size wise, HiFiMAN HE-400i should be the lightest, 370g.
HiFiMAN HE-560 375g
Oppo PM-2 385g
Oppo PM-3 395g

Audeze LCD series, more than 500g
Audeze EL-8 480g (same with HE-1000, but the ear cups are much smaller)
