Judging from the systems that will be set up for demo at Gelombang 2022, the first AV show to be held in Kuala Lumpur in two years, audiophiles will be in for a treat.
From the posts on the Gelombang 2022 Facebook page, there are already several systems to look out (or is it listen out?) for.
AA Audio – Level M2 Bilbao 2
Dr Anwar Ali of AA Audio made waves at the Northern AV Show in Penang last June. His own designed and manufactured music server drew huge interest at the show. Not resting on his laurels, we hear that he has worked on the music server and improved it.
Come listen for yourself at see that Malaysian Boleh!

Audio Art Malaysia & Audio Concept Sdn Bhd (Level 1 Room 104)
They are well known for brands such as Tonewinner (amplification), JF Digital (streamers), Heco (speakers), Appotronic (projector) and Viborg (cables & accessories) amongst others.
With a little bif of this and a little bit of that, this room will showcase a 2-channel and a home theater system. For the HT enthusiasts, come see the quality of Appotronics 4K short throw projector. We’ve seen it and it’s brilliant.
Centre Circle Audio (Level 2 Room 202)
It’s going to be a HiFi Rose galore for those who are fans. Source is the RS150b which will be amplified by the retro-industrial looking RA 180 integrated amplifier (we love the gears and dials) powering Perlisten Audio R5m speakers. To ensure that the clean sounding set up is nearer to perfection, an Isotek V5 Aquarius power optimizer is on duty.
Gelombang 2022 will be held from Aug 5-7 at Melia Kuala Lumpur Hotel.
