This is going to be an eventful week for AE. We have invited Mr. Roy Gregory (Founder and editor of Hi Fi Plus in the UK and ex VP Marketing of Nordost in the US) to visit Hong Kong. We invited him to "review the playback quality of AE showrooms". Such approach is very different from reviewing any single piece of electronic. Managing the playback quality of a showroom requires a holistic understanding of room acoustics, speaker placement, and configuration of electricity etc. It is in our opinion the industry lacks articles of such interest at the retailer level. The priority is to share and explore techniques to achieve better sound. And AE shall remain humble to learn from leading critic like Mr. Gregory. This is the way going forward to break new ground and to curate more incumbents. We shall share whatever we learn during the course of this week.
Last but not least, Javier of Wadax will launch the 100kg extreme reference dac in her finest sculptural form together with Roy Gregory at Divin Lab on April 13. Javier is likely to broadcast the event live. Stay tuned for more info from AE face book or forum.
