Audio Gold For Lucky Men: MY 25 Hi-Fi Malaysia Group
A prosperous two day trip to Kuala Lumpur brings an earful of delights worth millions of dollars.
About The Host Of This Event
Frankie Voon's Frank Acoustics Power Bank PB-15000Ws use a shunt reactor as
an absorber of reactive power, thus increasing the energy efficiency of the
electrical system. It is the most compact device commonly used for reactive
power compensation in long high-voltage transmission lines and in cable
systems. Frank Acoustics has modified this system using a proprietary
technique for domestic homes. The Frank Power Bank Storage component is
essentially a scaled down version of this unique system for maintaining AC
power to your hi-fi system. You can learn more at
Side Note: I find it interesting that with some systems my
ears adapt quickly, whilst with others it takes a bit of time for my brain to
decrypt and then form a universal way to decode the presentation of the music.
Once 'decoded', then everything flows from that moment onward. Is it my brain
readjusting to the time/phase cues to then make it 'sound correctly' or ???
Two Daze Of Audio Delights
Heather and I never planned to visit KL during our
nearly two month long holiday in Singapore. Our gracious host Frankie Voon,
manufacturer of the Frank Power Bank PB-15000Ws line conditioner, tagged me on
Facebook and four days later we found ourselves within the company of
passionate music lovers. It is far more than 'just' the many millions of
dollars of equipment, as there is a special friendship within the MY 25 Hi-Fi
Malaysia group. And the food, oh my goodness the food they were kind enough to
treat Heather and I too! From a classic Lunar New Year eight (8!) course
dinner to delicious lunches and of course my personal delight of chicken, beef
and lamb satay. Jo Ki kindly taught Heather how to properly hold chop sticks! We saw
many great room tuning ideas, the 60 cents each cable stands and other common
sense engineering sound solutions. As much as each group member is a bit
different in their equipment choices, they all admire one another and share in
their love of music together. In many ways I see a bit of myself in each one
of them. From engineering to art, from the energetic Doctor to the restful
retiree... After nearly 24 hours of flying half way around the world, we
humans are, in many ways, still all the same. We all love music and we are
all unique, just like everyone else.
As always, in the end what really matters is that you...
Enjoy the Music,
Steven R. Rochlin
