The Vinyl Shop, By CMY Audio & Visual.

John Yew invited me to CMY Audio & Visual in Sungei Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur. He said there's a surprise for me. When I arrived to his showroom at the Lower Ground Floor, he took me up to his new venture at Lot F014 & F015, First Floor in Sungei Wang Plaza, and there we were, standing in front of what he called "The Vinyl Shop". He asked "What do you think?". I was speechless.

John is that kind of person who puts his plans in to action and make things a reality. The reality is what you see here, John's vision for a vinyl hang out especially designed for connoisseurs of the "black arts". Eevry thing a turn table man needs, is available here. Let's see what's on offer:

The entrance to The Vinyl Shop.
More window displays of Clearaudio turn tables.
The vinyl section is immense in choice! You have a choice of NOS, new or used LPs. Through John's contacts in Europe, he has managed to raid some of best original pressings from RCA, Decca, Deutsche Grammophon, Philips and Teldec amongst others from the 50's and 60's, all sealed NOS copies. CMY prices them very reasonably too. Go check them out before they're gone. John tells me he has another shipment of 10,000 LPs on way from Europe!

Some high -end demos too. The usual suspects includes brands like Usher, Proac, Wadia, Clearaudio and JRDG as seen here. 
Naim is also featured prominently too. Check out the new Ovator series speakers, they quite outstanding compare to Naim's previous speaker models.
Clearaudio Performance on demo.
Clearaudio Master Solution on demo.

Clearaudio Ambient on display.

Clearaudio Champion on demo
Clearaudio Solution on display

Goldring Elektra cartridge, I used to have this on my Rega P3 when I was much younger. Excellent budget cartridge.

There's also an AV demo room with lazy chairs.

The AV demo room is equipped with 2.35 screen and anamorphic lens based projector system. John tells me this is a budget anamorphic lens set up.   
The main foyer and reception area.

CMY Audio & Visual means business!

I browsed for a few hours in the shop for LPs. Like a kid in a candy store, I had a problem, which LP not to buy? That's due to the enormous choice of LPs available and not enough budget to accommodate. I had further narrow down my picks over and over again just to stay within budget. This is certainly a change from the days that I'd browse for LP's and not finding anything that tickles my fancy!

Just in case you can't find The Vinyl Shop, call Dicky, Astley or John at 03-21439206 for directions.
