Sonic Frontiers SFCD-1
One of the best CD player I ever used,
dynamics, detail and warm, but technology quite old (20bit DAC +
My experience: Meridian 508.24, Rega Planet, Myryad MC100, Parasound 2000 + +…
My dream: Sonic Frontiers Transport 3 + Processor 3
Aura Designs CA200 / PA200
Very high praised in Japan Stereo Sound, this model is highest model of Aura and seldom seen in the market.
Gorgeous design, solid sound.
For those people who have experienced the Aura famous model VA100mk.II integrated amplifier,
I can say that, this one is 300% better.
My experience: Sphinx Myth 3, Aura designs VA100mk.II, Mission Cyrus III, Denon 2000
My dream: To have one more PA200 for bi-amp.
Cool look, warm sound.
Can make 鄭經翰 become 朱江, very fascinating.
My experience: Harmon Kardon TU9400, Rotel
My dream: Digital tuner from Arcam with Digital broadcasting in HK
Crazy speaker will crazy small size, JET tweeter and aluminum look make other people think the sound is "hard",
but it is a neutral sound speaker in reality.
85% performance compare to my Sonus Faber EAII but price is 40%.
My experience: Sonus Faber EAII, Sonus Faber Electa, Sonus Faber Minima amator, B&W P6 ++ …
My dream: Sonus Faber Amati Homage, Elac Spirit of Music, B&W N801
HOME CINEMA PART
Philips 990 Matchline 32" 16:9 TV
Matchline series, 100Hz and full digital picture make it one of the best available 32" TVs with built-in tuner.
Operates like a computer. European warm color good for prolong watching,
many of my friends say is even better than "hong" goods Sony Wega.
Weakest link is without component input.
My experience: Panasonic 32' 16:9, Philips 780 29" Matchline
My dream: Philips 36" 16:9 TV and DLP projector
New generation "hong" goods from Pioneer,
very detail sound (Motorola 100Mpis CPU!!) but lack of emotion and texture.
Speaker terminal too small and cannot use banana plug, cannot use external IEC power cord ….,
even worse than Japanese version D8TX. I miss
my Pioneer D9TX (without DTS), I think D10TX will be much better.
My experience: Pioneer D9TX (a very very good one)
My dream: Pioneer D10TX
Nice looking, but too close to 7000, make it looks like an old model.
Picture very saturated in color, I think is too saturated so it becomes lack of some details, and no 24/96 output.
I miss my Pioneer DVS5 much.
My experience: Pioneer DVS5
My dream: Pioneer AX10
Wow wow wow, never think a sub-woofer low frequency can sound so "Quick",
maybe because its servo control and good built-in power amp. Excellent!
My experience: B&W AS6, Klipsh 8", Onkyo 8"
My dream: No dream up to now .. maybe HGS-12 just because of its small size.
Very good center speaker with bi-wire, sweet sound with great details and dynamics.
I am very satisfied, no complaint. Will be excellent if its size is small like Take 5.
My experience: Alchemist
My dream: Sonus Faber Solo Home (just because of its appearance)
