Mr. Koh, fondly called "FT" by peers, is one of the true veterans in the Singapore high-end scene, probably almost every veteran high-end dealer knows him.  Although he has tamed down quite a bit, he still keeps himself updated listening to new high-end products that interest him, or trying out various accessories.  And of course, listening to music still occupies much of his time, having a great collection of classical LPs.


With the introduction of the Scheu Premier MK2 / AT OC9 into his system, the gains that FT reported are better pace, rhythm, and timing.  Overall, a more lively and dynamic presentation compared to his previous Walker Gold Proscenium turntable / Clearaudio Insider.


Listening to the system with various music, the above assessment is evident.  On the rare box set LP "Dead Man Walking" soundtrack (if you have the album for sale, please let us know),  we can add that timbre reproduction is very good, with detailed yet natural highs, courtesy of the Scanspeak Revelator tweeter.  And Audio Artistry's claim of "unboxy" speakers holds water, the system was open and free from any sort of boxiness, with the speaker panels of the folded baffle design helping in this department.  FT know his stuff, and the bass modules were unobtrusive, like they weren't there at all, reminding us of the Genesis 1.1 speakers in other systems we've heard.  Ultimately, with the system in an open air environment, compromises have to be accepted.  But in a dedicated enclosed room, this system will be awesome.
