2019 Taipei Audio & Art Fair
« on: December 14, 2019, 02:54:13 PM »
There will be a medium-sized audio show in Taipei from 12/19 - 12/22. I'll be on a family trip until the 19th, but I will try very hard to attend the show on the 20th or 21st. I'll post pics of interesting looking gear/brands that one doesn't often see in N. America. My commentary will never match that of Pez and Tyson's reviews of RMAF, but I'll try to keep it interesting.

You may need to brush up on your Mandarin. I know - "appliance fair" just doesn't seem very enticing.

Guy,

Don't despair - my master scheduler may still be persuaded into a trip to Vietnam in January or February.  :thumb: Geez. We're almost neighbors.

Hi mressequie,
please tell your '' master scheduler '' that in February there are lots of things going here on planet Vietnam.
Vietnamese Lunar New Year, our 25th wedding anniversary, my birthday,
however, that doesn't mean I will not have time for you and your wife,
nothing would make me more happy to meet someone that has so much in common with me :
Asian wife, Asian location and music equipment.

I'll attend this Audio & Art Show tomorrow afternoon. I'll have about 5 hours to ooh and aah before I leave for an engagement.

An AC friend has asked me to inquire about pricing on NeoTech items: NeoTech NEI 1001 / 1002 (3m speaker cables) and 3 pairs of NEI 1002 Interconnects (1 or 1.5 meter RCA cables).

Let me know if there's anything else that you're curious about, and I will look for it. If you want photos of the art stuff, you're welcome to hop on a flight to Taipei.  :thumb:

Teasers:

This link takes you to LuKang Audio's speakers. These speakers will be in a room. The tweeter is a 3/4" Hiquphon OW4; woofer is Audio Technology 230mm or 200mm customized drivers. With AT woofers, one might expect great sounding speakers, no? The cabinets are very thin and unbraced. The man who demonstrates them hawks them exactly as a carnival barker might use his voice (and tactics) to persuade potential victims customers to hurry up and lay down their money to buy white van speakers. I've watched him demo his speakers 4 times over the years, and I've never understood why he chooses to use this tactic to sell speakers. I got to see his crossovers last year, and <even though I'm a XO noob> could see that he uses cheap components.

http://www.lukang-audio.com/list_003.html

LALS-Audio:

I really like these speakers. I know a guy who owns their 12" woofer Neo-Classical floor-standers, and they are fantastic and non-fatiguing. I may someday own a pair if I can con...persuade my wife that they will complement the decor.  :duh The website doesn't seem to like Chrome. You can toggle for English, but there's more information in Mandarin. [I know. That doesn't help you.]

I can't see any of the pictures on Lals. When I search for pictures the classic ones look nice that use bigger drivers.

Indeed, I would have high hopes for them.
