Best in show?     the Avalon room and the Focal girls                   

The Magico M6 room with Constellation amps truly had the absolute worst muzak I have ever heard. Crazy irritating drum demo and insipid lite jazz.  Had to leave after 3 songs.    

Here's some random picks of what my wife and I saw.   I enjoyed the Storm audio demo by Richcolm was better than the Trinnov demo in 2016.     I liked the read pla

I'm in. Good timing, I was pricing flights just last night!

What dates shall we arrive and depart? Take in a few HK sights or head to Macau for a night following the show?

Well I’m likely to be living in Phnom Penh, so provided funds are available...

(I’d forgotten how expensive women can be ?) 

If  funds are ok, I’m in!

Had a ball this year with a bunch of very bad boys!

Have you been to Munich's High End Show, Rod?

If not, then this is Asia's equivalent - and if you haven't been to either then best you snap up that ticket.

You'd be like a kid in a candy store. :thumb:

There has been an unavoidable change to your flight schedule

Apparently Virgin doesn't fly Melbourne > Hong Kong direct on Wednesday's any more.

Have to connect through Sydney now.

Let us know if you are in the area. There's a great bar we all meet at night to "debrief".

@metal beat even starts singing once he's had a few Espresso Martinis :)

I've only just discovered Frangelico, Marc, and apart from a certain desert that uses it, I've been downing it in a martini made at a local wine bar that stirs it into the vermouth and then sprinkles a very aromatic raspberry based gin over the top. I'm sure  @metal beat  would like it and I might actually get them to pop a cold shot into it next time I'm there.

I'll see if I can convince another member here to come over for a few days, it'd be great to catch up there and then in Melbourne at the 'real' Hifi Show later in the year.

You mean it's not just the company that brings you to HK?

Surely the shenanigans alone are worth it!

You have to line up each day for a ticket.No 3 day pass.Tickets at the venue.

You know you want to Rusty. We're getting the band back together, minus the tall one, and the oft-absent one.

I was trying to interest a fellow traveller and his partner. The thinking being that his  partner and mine could do the shopping thing and sightsee and him and me would do the hifi thing and he'd pour me into the taxi.

 

I'm not sure where the convo ended up. I'll see which way the mop flops and get back to you.

...and the addition of a short long-haired one of local repute... ? 

Look what happened last year. Of course I want to! 

Maybe the oft-absent one is afeared of the locals?

@Stump    if it was like last year, the line up will be too long.

 

Only one way to get her to autograph, Stump, come on over.?
