  • Hong Kong Hi Fi Show 2017

    Spent the day at the HK hifi show today. The HK show is known as probably the best hifi show in the world due to part the actual grand size and the large rooms on level 2 & 4 for some of the more specialised distributors. Always so many people attend this show and today was no exception.

    The Audionet / Fischer & Fischer room sounded excellent - on the clean extended side

    I thought the super large Avalon speakers sounded excellent - chean and went very deep. the speakers themselves are monsters

      Thanks. Samsung phone ☺

      I was lucky enough to get exhibitor entry from a friend of mine so was in the large rooms before they got full.

      Actually I think I can see your reflection in that blue Gryphon speaker. Good lighting. Lots of reflective surfaces. Contrasty... Nice production on the exhibits. It all looks tasty.

      "the large Gryphon's looked superb - can't comment on sound but might get to listen to them tomorrow"

      Funny you say this.
      I've seen the Gryphon systems at lots of shows for many years, all the way back to when they showed at CES at the St Tropez hotel.

      BUT, I've never heard a Gryphon system playing music....

    The Zellaton speakers with the Dohman table was nice and clean sounding

          You have to be there to really understand the scale of this show. I even saw Marjorie (RMAF) there to see it first-hand. This is the queue for tickets on Friday half an hour before the show started. The first few arrived to queue at 7:30am - the show starts at 10am.

            Must be lots of discretionary spending in HK.

              Do you remember the Meitner and Yamamura (?) tables? Neither had a platter either.

              I thought Nottingham was defunct?

              New investment has gone in - they brought out 4 new turntables at the HK show.

              That Titan is a tank. Make my table look like a toy. Funny Mat didn't bring along a Fat Boy arm for the Titan.

            the YG's were not sounding great for some reason, but will have another listen later today to hear if they improve.




            the very large main hall - a bit like CES and so many people








            This room sounded really good. The Albedo speakers were excellent









            Could not really comment on the sq as the Chinese musak was so unfamilar




            impressive pre




            The Piega room sounded pretty good







            The Estelon / Devialet room sounded flat and lifeless - like they were playing mp3's.




            the Advantgarde room which was right next door sounded great.




            Huge Wisdoms being driven by 5 x Dägostino





            sex still sells in Asia



            Magico M3's. man are the small for the price they charge.

              No Jadis equipment in the Jadis room. I am pretty sure they do not import Jadis gear.

              Jadis does import Jadis, or at least they used to but it doesn't have much mass appeal and with so many brands to choose from...

                  Thanks Miguel for your photos. What's the ("thiner") white grounding cable with metal ring on Troy Signature?
