On the third day, I walked down the stairs from the hotel lobby and the first person I saw was CMY boss John Yew chatting with Darrell Huggins from QED. After snapping a few photos, Darrell showed me how the QED AIRLOC termination system worked by crimping the wires together.
I popped into the Panasonic room and found out that it also had a laser projector which was also quite good. Then I took the lift to the eighth floor to continue the exploration of sonic highs of this year’s KLIAVS.

The FiiO R7 is to me at least, a first of its kind. A product that merges a player, digital to analogue convertor, preamplifier and headphone amplifier. All of this is crammed into a uniquely designed chassis that would standout while blending in seamlessly on a desktop setup. Offered in both black and white, the FiiO R7 is by far the most fascinating product currently available in the FiiO catalogue.
