Picture At The Exhibition


The morning section consists of a static display in the beautiful restaurant. Rocco is the kind gentlemen you want to speak to if you have problem with pronunciation of Italian words. Thanks Rocco for the use of your lovely restaurant, not to mention the wonderful buffet. Errr... can we do it again next year?


Pre-amplifier with interchangeable modules!
Why didn't I think of that?


"Class T" digital power amplifier.











Tons of Valve gears. Luckily the restaurant table is tough enough to hold the weight of all this gear.


A modified Marantz CD4000. No, that chopping
board is not from the restaurant.


Rock n’ Roll

Afternoon is the time to boogie.



Linkwitz Orion (ORION Loudspeaker System)
and its partnering equipments.


Ring Radiator silk dome tweeter ( look at that nipple! )
and 7-inch Revelator bass


Accuton fresh milk loudspeaker tweaking? No, they were stuffed during the show to reduce the internal volume of the cabinet. Oh, and the sound is very liquid too, really excellent ceramic drivers.


Fostex FE103E in TQWT cabs. These baby do sound sound loud with certain material in the room!


Open Baffle Bada speakers with Fostex FT131 horn tweeters.
The bad is not bad for a open baffle design really.


Zenlite Power amplifier. HOT stuff....
Things are never too hot for Singaporeans to handle.


Tube/Valve craftsman’s Room Setup


Silicon Valley (Solid State) Room Setup


The amplifier is actually the small silver box above the big bronze box which contains 4 Lead-Acid Battery. DC-powered amplifier! Can be used as backup to jump start your car if it refuse to start.


Picture of just some of the visitors, the organizer (the one with the yellow sticker on his polo-shirt) and the D.I.Y'ers, who actually paid for the two rooms. They care not about the money as long as we, the listeners, enjoy the music.
