Heard the Pure Sound set up at full tilt....very very impressive.

The mega buck systems lived up to their impressive standards but one very reachable speaker that impressed me the most was the KEF R300 driven by a 500 watt Musical Fidelity Integrated amp. Take note...it's a 3 driver set up shoehorned in a bookshelf and it sounded like a true blue floorstander. The scale of its presentation was astounding. The grip that the 500 watt amp had on the speakers was absolute. spent the most time there in that room listening to the system belt out orchestra, jazz, big band etc.

If I can't afford a Dynaudio Special 25 for the next couple of years then the KEF R300 can certainly satisfy my craving for a price that is around 75% cheaper than the special 25.

Another room that made me sit down and stay for a while was the 803D with Classe electronics by Toyama. Given the fact that it is a small room the big 803's didn't sound boomy at all. It sounded just right and of course that all too familiar Nautilus signature sound made me feel at home.

Ferdie's system this year was Boulder electronics coupled with Harbeth and REL and once again it was set up and tuned just right. You would think that the REL was not even turned on and yet the sub bass system belted out just the right amount of reinforcement to the glorious Harbeth signature sound.

There are also mega buck set ups there that didn't sound like a mega buck system....it was underwhelming to say the least. Dami din set up na Hot ang setting sa bass (HT).
Sir synchro what room po yung may kef r300-musical fidelity set-up?

My personal favorites are Martin Logans, xavian driven by cayin tubes,Daedalus (hope I got the spelling right) driven by bob carver amps,mk room for video,of course those mighty focals driven by equally impressive vtl pre and power amps! Special thanks to sir Wilfred,Hansen and of course Luke Manley for accommodating my special request ;) last but certainly not the least room of audioworld,proacs d2 driven by audio analogue class A amp,heard taoke Kelvin spent hours on the placements of the speakers,it only proves that inches make a world of difference,congrats! Pa lucky tea naman kayo! ;D

Another very successful hifi show,all smiles mga tao!

Hats off na rin to those youngsters in the jazz band. Galing nila!

I was expecting LIS to have this room or they also have their own "big" room?

Anyway, glad to know you already got your Genaflex tubes. Many thanks sir Arn.  ;)

Thanks, donnel, for facilitating the sale! I'm currently burning them in and even now they sound very promising. :-)

This should be the best Hifi show from the previous years.

- there was a lot of people even in the afternoon of Sunday.  Exhibit hours should be extended to 8pm
- quite a number of exhibitors took effort in treating their rooms which allowed us to really evaluate their system.
- DIYers and local products were given the opportunity to show that local products have their place in the audiophile scene.
- the organizers got the president to visit the show

I however missed the headphiles group!

Congrats to vintage dog, detubo and the team!
