Hai Beoy in Hokkien means the end of the sea. The owner of the sea food restaurant tries to impress customers that his restaurant is located in the end of the sea and it works. There are several restaurants on the way before reaching this restaurant that lost in the competition, closed shop. I have been to almost all the sea food restaurants here and finally settle at Hai Beoy. Perhaps it has the best feng shui. Who knows...

Hai Boey has got to be one of most exotic dinner surroundings on earth. Where else can you actually go for a dip in the ocean, walk 20 yards across the sand to your table and feast on authentic cooking that makes Michelin Star chefs look like Bozo (the clown) on a bad day. But what makes this location extraordinary is the fact that it sits at the concave end of a cove facing the sea which is like "king seat" by nature. In short, a photographer's wet dream!

是晚爵爺見便宜,無執輸,搏晒命勁擦。  
 
翌日遲遲不見,原來痾足成晚,不似人形。午飯有特訂名貴「蘇丹」魚,衆嘍囉食得興致,沒察覺爵爺失了踪。  
 
原來他竟然在 45 度高温下,响路邊攤直晒太陽,口中念念有詞,說甚麼 黑鱷午陽大法,吸陽驅陰云云。

Morning friends,  
 
As our trip coming to a wrap, Gan took us to an extraordinary location for dinner on our last evening in Penang, which is now on my "places in the world must visit again before I die" list! But before that, here's more snaps on our last audition of the trip and a special treat from Mr. Koay to sample the most famous river fish of the region!

>> Infinity would get a whole tree from Brazil and sent the rosewood to some boat maker  
 
Wow !! Really !! If those are solid block of rosewood. Then the IRS are dirt cheap !!!!! (I am not doubting, I trust you, I am just saying ...) You know how expensive a solid block of Brazillian rose wood or cocobolo cost for that wide and tall ?!! Basically doesn't exist, if it's a new tree, then the drying process will post a problem. I use to get exoitic wood from a source in San Diego and Torrance, anything from snake wood, pink ivory to ebony and cocobolo, so I know them price !! Which said we should buy use IRS and just resell the wood block and throw away the speaker and comes out way ahead of $$ :-)  
 
We built a kung-fu dummy a few years ago with a solid dryed cocobolo block, 5 ft tall, beautiful pattern but it's the only one tree we could get wide enough. All 3 arms are cocobolo also, the crisp hitting sound was awsome & no tubes require in this case ...  
For the cost, let's just say the block itself cost more than just about all Magnepan models. We have offers for $20K to sell but no thanks.

____________________________________________________________  
 
Well, if Maggie follows Infinity, they will have to charge 30X or more to make it viable.  
 
It was claimed that when you order your IRS V, Infinity would get a whole tree from Brazil and sent the rosewood to some boat maker (in California IIMC) to make the giant panel and bass tower.  
 
So, apparently those are not just simple wood veneer panels!

There are 12 mid-ranges and 24 tweeters at the front, and 12 tweeters at the back (no mid-range)!

____________________________________________________________  
Hi Gan,  
 
Based on your WAMM and my friend’s IRS V, I believe they are still dominating the hifi world, only that both of them are out of production!  
 
I had the pleasure to audition a few IRS Vs in the 1980s / 90s, but it wasn’t until 5 years ago we visited your place that I had the chance to audition the WAMM.  
 
With the improvements in electronics, I believe the WAMM’s and IRS V’s performance have been pushed to a level way beyond what could be achieved in the 80s / 90s!  
 
Your WAMM is definitely the best system I have ever auditioned! :-)

I have heard one with great performance in a huge room in Vietnam, and I think the IRS V has the potential to rival the Wilson WAMM!

Sifu, the red flesh durian you ate formerly is called "Red Prawn". It is only found in Penang. Else where in Malaysia you can't find it. It is Penang's "speciality" with limited production. You were lucky to have try it.  
 
Mr Thai told me he is now 75 years old. He intend to end his hifi hobby as his hifi fever decreases with age. Perhaps, in our next visit, he can only treat us with mini-compo. What a sad story...  
 
Keep up with the hifi spirit, Mr Thai. You are not alone!

Yes, the room is probably too small for the speaker, but the IRS V itself is really an amazing speakers.

From my footnote:  
 
06 08 2012, Monday  
 
Two hours ride in the morning took us to Penang. The first to visit was Mr. Tai whom I met some seven eight years ago. I still have clear memories of the superlative violin when he played us the Butterfly Lovers by Lin Ke Han〔林克漢〕. In the middle of the listening session, someone brought in an exotic durian whose fruit was red in color. I was just in time to snatch the last piece. Wow, simply smashing!  
 
Mr. Tai has now moved his IRS V to his work place at the back of a used car sales showroom. The room ought to be much too small for this behemoth and yet the sound was surprisingly pleasant. Electronics remained his favorite pick, the Mcintosh.
