The 5th AE Super Hi End Show on Jul 08/09 at HKCEC
The overwhelming success of the 3-room configuration will remain intact in 2017. Like in the past, the first day on Jul 08 is managed by our esteemed partner – AudioTechnique. There will be two pre-programmed shows on Saturday afternoon. The following day on 09 will open for the public. Attendants are encouraged to bring their own recordings.
The international attendances of this one-company show has always been spectacular. I received the first phone enquiry from Pakistan in April, followed by India, France, Germany, New Zealand, South Africa and mainland China. The acclaimed recognition around the globe exemplifies our relentless drive for excellence. The biggest challenge of sustaining such spirit is not capital, however, as commonly perceives. We can't fight the law of large numbers due to an uprising motherland. But we aren’t giving up the defense of our core values.
We want to build a prestige company championed by eloquence of client communications, innovative products, professional after-sales service and inspirational client education sessions. This requires persistence and patience. Meanwhile, AE is free from meeting sales quota and enhancing shareholder values. We want to cradle a culture of research and development that defines the quintessence of our representations. It is financially risky to pursue this router but we want rather to be a market maker. Supply creates demand, not vice versa.
I am proud to have brought up a handful of brands whose owners share the same belief as I do. All of them have been kept pushing the envelope to uncharted areas in recent years. It isn't my original plan to push my partners too rigorously this year. Once again, it will be an exciting show given the vast world premiers.
Dietmar Brauer of Trinity will have his own room featuring the latest arrival of two super league electronics with extreme measurement results - the Golden Reference Phono/Preamp. He has succeeded in making the total harmonic distortion (THD) from 20hz to 20khz of the analog output stage of the phono/preamp equivalent to the THD of a bare wire connecting between the input and output of the most expensive audio analyzer in the world. (A bare wire has no distortion because there are no electronics within). This is truly a trailblazing result from a theoretical standpoint.
All are well packed with his own reference rack containing the golden reference media server and AC conditioner. His digital and analog electronics will pair with Cessaro Carmen wired completely by Trinity cables. The analog turntable is the almighty Da Vinci Gabriel V3 (years after years of annual awards from premium US magazines) with Virtu XXL arm and Etsuro flagship cartridge.
