Wondering whether anyone would be scaling down their shows, as a result of a bad market (generally) currently. hmm.gif

Mcintosh confirmed scaling down their show for the past 3 years.
But I guess they know where's the mistake are.
Putting a speaker meant for hall in a small room won't bloom that setup doh.gif

Mcintosh gear is way to expensive, even just to take their bottom series? shocking.gif

Normal series already talking of hundred, hundred K whistling.gif
That array speakers I think close to M, but I never bother to ask, since it is not suitable for my terrace house.
Getting the right speaker are very hard, what you listen from show room that are treated won't same to you room(if not treated). I still remember when I first bought my rm1300 HT system, listening in the show room very good, but once it reaches my house, using the same movie also can't yield the same result sweat.gif

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

That's why I don't understand why people call this an AV show where the bloody fact is, it is just snake oil show laugh.gif

And of course there will be always good and bad products, with friendly or premium price, it's up to us to choose wisely, the world is not a world if it's always only good exist I believe wink.gif  whistling.gif

Actually a lot of good deals going on, better than expected.

Had fun at the event today though. Crowd was bigger than expected too. LOVEEEEEEE those Sonus Faber speakers. Man they're just ear-dropping!

But Vifa speakers are not that good, right?

Wasn't that impressed, I mean they're pretty okay but coming off from the Sonus Faber room... lol everything else sounds decent at best.  sweat.gif

Basically Sonus Faber are taking raw drivers from Vifa for certain line ups. But it is modified version on the speaker's specs. Just like Alpine's F#1 series speakers that are using Scanspeak, but with certain speaker are different.
This is how a brand can do. A China brand raw driver with pretty good specs nobody will bother to see it but being rebrand to another brand, it can be sold like a hot cake laugh.gif

That is what I feel too. Malaysian buy because of brand.

That's other countries prefer DIY, as it will be more interesting and the result are better most of the time.

Not sure about snake oil but you should go to keep tabs.

I for one used to think power cables is snake oil until I was in China recently and DIY myself a power cable for my amp. The results of that was a whole new better sound.

Well, a ferrite core you can get in Jalan Pasar for rm5-10.
A nice power cable that having enough of strands for rm1-2 per M.
Heat shrink tubing for rm0.50-3 depending on the lenght.
Techflex for rm2-5 per M(now more expensive since USD strong).
But in the snake oil show for the same stuff that you DIY for the most rm50-100, they are selling for rm2000 shocking.gif

Still remember a year during the show, the seller are selling the above for rm100k whistling.gif
But the raw driver he got in Seremban for rm1000 a pair. At that time, a 4*8ft MDF only cost rm110 which can make about 5 of them. So you do the maths whistling.gif
My jaws dropped basically rclxub.gif
