AV Designs at KLIAV 2011

AV Designs is going full Bryston / PMC this year. The system will be used for demo-ing both stereo and 7.1 channel home theatre.

The main highlight is the hot off the production line Bryston SP-3 pre-amp processor. KLIAV showgoers will be the lucky ones as we are the first country in this region to experience the Bryston SP-3 in action.

The loudspeaker system will consist of the award winning PMC IB2i that impressed us so much recently. They will be driven by Bryston 28B-SST2 monoblocks that give out a mind boggling 1000w/8ohm.
To make the surround system complete, there will be the matching IB2i-C for the centre channel, and four PMC Wafers for the surrounds. They will all be driven by Bryston amps too.

The frontend for 2-channel will be none other than the Bryston BDP-1 media player, paired with the Bryston BDA-1 external DAC, by the way this pair is Big E's reference frontend in his system too. You will have the chance to listen to high resolution audio files as well as CD-rips.

For home-theatre, there will be both 2D and 3D demos, shown on a curved 130-inch 2.35:1 format screen from Screen Research. Do not miss the 3D home theatre demo especailly, as it is 3D done in an anamorphic 2.35 widescreen format, not the 16:9 format. We are made to understand that this is something that few if any exhibitor will be showing. This is surely one of the not-to-be-missed highlights in KLIAV 2011.

Video will be done via Pioneer blu-ray players and JVC's entry-level 3D projector, the RS40. To project in 2.35:1 format, an anamorphic expansions lens from Panamorph will be used.
