Level 1, Farm Cove Room

Western Australia's March Audio has been in the top 3 Best Sounding Rooms two years in a row – despite its system being a fraction of the price of some other systems. They will be back for 2025 with their latest speakers, amplifiers and cables, all proudly hand-built in Albany, WA, delivering “superb technical performance and sound at modest prices”. And for 2025 they're moving up to one of the big ballrooms on ticketing level 1, so we can hear what March can do in an even larger space!

Level 9, Room 1

"As our name suggests, we’re about analogue sound," says Secret Chord Analogue, returning to the Show after delivering one of the busiest rooms at the 2024 show, featuring not only "the world’s finest vinyl record cleaning method", Record Restore, but also tube amps by Elekit of Japan and Red Roo of Australia: power amps, preamps and phono stages, along with the open-baffle single-driver Confluence loudspeaker system.

Level 9: Room 3
"Crafted in Australia with French flair, our core design forte is in small speakers crafted to sound incredibly good on their own and have a reputation to have one of the best midrange in the World. They reproduce instruments timbres with accuracy and speed, thanks to their very inert marine grade birch plywood cabinet and bespoke drivers mostly sourced from famous French manufacturer Audax.

It was case proven at the 2024 Show with the latest Tower 4 design, so what M.A.D. wonders will arrive in 2025? More news as it comes..

With the promise of exciting new and current favourite products on demonstration from Bowers & Wilkins, Denon, Marantz, Pol, Classé and AudioQuest cables – no wonder Masimo is taking three rooms on the ninth floor to demonstrate its significant hi-fi and AV wonders!

Always bringing something special to the Show, Masimo's team delivers not only top-sounding rooms, but also their enthusiasm, expertise and depth of knowledge that allow showgoers to get all their hi-fi questions answered, while soaking in stunning tunes.

Level 9, Room 8

At the last Sydney show, Audio Magic and Krispy Audio delivered one of our very favourite-sounding rooms (shown above) with the cunningly chamfered Kudos Audio Titan 808 speakers effortlessly rolling out the tunes under the command of Copland’s CTA407 integrated tube amplifier, almost invisible in black at the top of one rack, while a VPI Scout turntable topped the other, above the very new Manley Oasis phono stage from California, which replaces the highly regarded Chinook. Digital tunes came from the versatile Lumin P1 streamer, DAC and pre-amplifier. Glorious. What wonders will they bring in 2025? Watch this space!
