昨天參與了第二節播放會，沒有多說話，只欣賞音樂，曲式種類有 classical, jazz , pop , rock , progressive jazz , 該柔情時柔情，該刺激時刺激，證明了不該播得好jazz 就播不好古典，播得好古典就墦不好 pop rock，一套全面嘅系統，係中性、平衡、有感染力，我相信沒有什麼曲目能夠挑選到神曲工作室！
今次能夠親身感受Robert Koda全套石機開聲，實在賞心樂事，這神曲工作室靚聲就不容置疑，而背後不同設計師的創意精神，實在令小弟深感佩服，我相信現在出嚟嘅效果實在得來不易。Wadax超級解碼播數碼比我聽過好多黑膠組合更模擬，而植師傅調效的黑膠系統更是萬能，小提琴高音明亮有勁、綿密又連貫，最尾播Beethoven F Romance by Milstein聽得我雞皮也起，Hotel california強勁節奏感，令人聞歌起舞，相信現場聽者都有同感，這樣真實而有感情的聲音劃上完美的句號。
Upon my first arrival to Divin Labs I
quickly realized PT had simply “knocked the ball out the park”.
True high end systems are rare – So rare in fact that over the past
twenty years or so I have always been anxious to return to my home
listening system swiftly. But this time Divin Labs got me!
It takes much more than the assembly of
a couple of world class components to reach this goal. It takes
tremendous effort, time and know how to mature a system into a
compelling listen. Chris was clearly up to the challenge and
succeeded. The system was – properly set up. And with K-160 in
command we (on Friday) found an abundance of music to present on
Saturday. In fact, much much more than time would allow us to play.
Both analog and digital formats were fully immersive and there was no
need to separate them into individual “sessions”.
I am truly grateful to PT and to all
those who came to listen. As PT commented, it was more like a “mini
concert” rather than a product launch. It was tremendous fun and a
memorable event made possible by a wonderful audience, a fantastic
host and a great sounding system!
Thanks for organizing the event and the food was delicious! Also thanks Robert to coming over to Hong Kong all the way from Japan for the great introduction and explanation of the state of the art K160. His technical expertise definitely helped us to better understand the design philosophy of the K160.
This is the 2nd time I listened to the K160, the first time with the Zanden Preamp and this time with the matched K15ex. Needless to say, both time the K160 performed at the highest level however with totally different presentation. When paired with the Zanden pre, it was about richness, saturation, and color; this time paired with K15ex it was about transparency, control and delicacy. The only thing in common was that the K160 presented tremendous control over the humongous Gobel Divin speakers when paired with either.
Extremely convincing session!
