MY 25 Hi-Fi Malaysia Group In Kuala Lumpur 2015
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.

Engineering Satisfying Sound
Getting the best from Wilson Audio Maxx 3 speakers.


Within the humble home of electrical engineer W.Y. Wong is a system built with Wilson Audio Maxx 3 floorstanders connected via JPS Labs cables to a homebrew copy of the TAD M300 solid-state amplifier. The front end is a dCS Puccini DAC and this seems to be the typical American, and perhaps politically-correct, system in some ways. Whilst the room was narrow and deep. The imaging is very solid and tightly defined, with good transient speed and definition. The front soundstage was nicely even rear corner right to rear corner left and all-between. Color me impressed with the very relaxed sound, or it could be all the traveling and lunch was catching up to me. Alas, the system still suffered by that Wilson mid-to-upper midrange slight rise yet so far this is the best taming of this widely-known anomaly from the Wilson Audio speakers I have heard to date. Of course the soundstage is like being front row where you're looking upward at the stage, which is probably due to the midrange-tweeter-midrange configuration height. Music had a wonderful sound, perhaps the best I've heard of the Wilson's to date actually as at shows they don't really seem to do this well as far as I can remember in all my years hearing nearly every model. This perhaps proves that shows are not the end-all be-all for auditioning equipment. It also makes me wish there were more tightly-knit audio communities so friends could share this system with others as the wonderful men here in Kuala Lumpur do. Again, this is by far the best I have ever heard from the Wilson Audio line of speakers and am impressed with what Mr. Wong has accomplished.
