Default Audio to take from Singapore?

Hi all,

I'm probably taking a trip to Singapore in the fall. Any interesting audio stuff I should pick up because it is hard to get / cheaper than in other places (Europe)?

How about Musical Fidelity X10/V3 (Not the old bomb-like X10). It has interesting sound characteristic, tubes in differential mode with bipolars output stage, all used as buffer. The old one is not differential, all tube.

Next door in Malaysia decent HiFi often seems to cost about double UK prices.

Go to The Adelphi building. The whole building is full with hifi shops next to each other. I don't know about the price comparing to Europe. But you can check it out. Many shops have website like this one.

www.soundscapehifi.com

You can also try to google with and see other shops as well.

Another place is Burlington Square which is next to Sim Lim Square. Sim Lim Square is a mall that full with IT shops. Burlington Square is next to it and in it first floor there are 2 shops that sell DIY things like tube, output transformers, etc. I got Tango and Tamura output transformers here which is even cheaper than in Japan.

Hi Janneman,

Drop me a line when you are in Singapore. What are you looking for? I can help to source for them before you come over. Just email me.

Shops are open both on Sat and Sun. Not all hifi shops at Adelphi may not be open on Sun though.

Hi Jan,

as a rule of thumb commercial stuff is priced at US level here. You may save a little due to the 5% sales tax vs. 20%+ VAT in Europe, but not dramatically so.

That being said, in addition to Adelphi and Burlington square, you could / should go to Sim Lim *Tower* (next to the more popular Sim Lim Square, both easily reached and centrally located). This is where they sell *components*. It's an "en gros - en detail" type of atmosphere, if you know what I mean, a building that houses anything from wholesellers who store transistors tubed by the 1000's, to resellers who offer 50 cents surplus Elna caps in large denominations... in any case, expect fun but not necessarily that you will find something specific. Likely you'll find something you already forgot you had been looking for for the past 20 years ;-)

Like Ruach I'll be happy to meet/assist when you're here, just pm me.
