Another interesting conversation with distributor about Korean audio market.
MSB top DAC which cost 80K $ sell well in Korea.
Also CH Precision Dac is also popular in Korea, but the distributor himself does not like the sound from CH Precision feeling that it is somewhat artificially sculptured.
There is serious division of opinion about Total DAC in Korea.
Some people like it’s analogue sound, but other people are of the opinion is that it lacks details.
DCS is also selling well in Korea.
The distributor also sell Mytek Digital products which I had listened to his listening room using Scansonic speakers.http://chessaudio.co.kr/xe/mytekhttp://chessaudio.co.kr/xe/scansonic
I found the combination sound fine but falling little bit short of top end category.
It was my first occasion to listen to Mytek Digital and Scansonic speakers.
But they are reasonably good system without exorbitant price.
I like his show room treated with Artnovion acoustic product.http://chessaudio.co.kr/xe/artnovion_list
I may try them in the future in my listening room.
He also mentioned that manufacturing facility of Blackcat moved from Japan to Georgia recently.
