AE Central showroom: Studio 1 (Audionec) and Studio 2 (Goebel Marquis)



  • To further extend the vinyl experience of this studio, we have added the Durand Tosca tonearm pairing with Top Wing Seiryu青龍 cartridge.  Obviously the Argento FMR phono ground wiring becomes a necessity rather than a luxury.

  • A pair of AudioNec EVO2 with active subwoofer is ready for delivery to our customer. 

  • Eric Encore by Engstrom of Sweden belongs to the category of “Super Amplifier” striking tremendous emotional impact on all souls including mega super star and celebrities. This is Lars Engstrom’s ultimate masterpiece to the service of music.  Salute to Lars and Timo.  Purity of tone, transient resolution, excellent control at high SPL, and the ability to recreate the resolution of AURA defining the atmosphere that exists but can’t be quantified.  Only a few pair of amplifiers could achieve all of the above - Eric Encore is one of the rarities. 

  • The arrival of Eric Encore the AE Central Studio has drawn a new wave of visitors in the past few days.  Not only does it aesthetically form a perfect match with the Goebel Marquis and DaVinci Gabriel, it also turns a new page in the overall system performance by delivering, at much ease, more flourishing finesse and liveliness to the music.  I am utterly thrilled how Eric Encore has ‘game changed’ the system and so did many fellow comrades in this group who paid a visit in the past few days.

    Eric from Engstrom has been in my home system for years as it matches perfectly with my musical liking, perhaps acquired taste, neat, tidy, lively, elegant, structured, transparent, clam are all the words that I can think of to describe the pair of 70W class A power amp.  Eric Encore is a ‘super’ manifestation of all the aforementioned plus an extra grasp on control and driving capability and an incredibly lowered noise floor!  I recall around Christmas time last year, I was discussing with PT on the roadmap for the Central studio and how to circumvent an otherwise overdamped Marquis, I believe I have found a perfect solution now!

    昨天(大年初四)適逢Marvel在中環音響室進行系統調教,可以靜靜地聆聽Engstrom「Eric」後級功放推動Gobel「Divin Marquis」+Arya「Airblade」 接近三個小時。由Wadax「Atlantis」 Transport/DAC 組合播放嘅管弦樂章到Da Vinci 「Gabriel」 唱盤+Thales「Statement」和Durand「Tosca」 唱臂組合播放不同類型嘅黑膠樂章,因加入了Eric, Divin Marquis低頻能量得到釋放。每首歌曲都突顯鬆容,但又不失質感,結合Airblade 從3,500hz的180度高音擴散,音樂內容更加真。在聆聽Maastrichts Salon Orkest ‎– Serenata ( featuring Andre Rieu ),很驚訝雀鳥聲像真度和真實沒有分別。  Marvel短期還會加入Engstrom「Monica」 前級 ,期待 !!


  • In preparation for a joint event with Audiotechnique in the coming weekends, I have set up the Engstrom Monica full balanced preamp to mate with the monoblocks.  The ‘resurrection’ of the Lars amplification in a suite has set a new level of relaxed intimacy and rhythmic dexterity where excitement only comes when the original music intention demands it!  Lars Eric, when driving the Goebel Divin Marquis delivers music which is unforced, engaging as well as expressive.  Once again, I am convinced on ‘the whole is greater than the sum of all the parts’ by using a suite of Lars amp.  I recall I did have the same feeling some years back when I first paired Lars Type2 power amp with Monica.  This time, the pleasant surprise springboard a few folds!
