Head-fiers in Taiwan? - Page 3

post #31 of 45
I'm all for Taiwan's independance, but that's not a discussion for this forum. That's actually a discussion with no end since neither party will compromise. =T

So back on topic, who here actually lives in Taiwan?

I'm in Taiwan right now (4 more days before I head back to Seattle) and just went to visit the Firestone Audio store in Tainan. Kinda small but they carry all the whole line of Firestone Audio products nothing else. Not exactly worth visiting if you're just planning to browse but u'll save a few bucks if u do go there intending to buy. I picked up a FubarII and a Encore amp for a pretty good price.

They also had the small tube amps and some 3" driver speakers from Firestone Audio as well that I've never seen reviewed on head-fi yet(anybody wanna donate to a worthy cause?)

I really do need to visit the hifi store in Taipei before I head out... ugh. One more thing added to my To-Do List.

I am not disputing that Taiwan WAS part of China. FYI, from all historical documents in the Ching dynasty, Taiwan was part of China except at certain periods where maps and other documents had eliminated Taiwan from the Ching dynasty territories calling it a waste- (useless) land not worthy to be included. During the war between Ching Dynasty and Japan in the 1800s, China signed a treaty giving Taiwan to Japan as compensation for losing that war. After WWII, Japan surrendered to the Allied Forces (including China), giving the Allied Forces the power to determine the future of Taiwan. Chinese army then landed in Taiwan as PART OF the Allied Forces. The status of Taiwan was never formally determined by the Allied Forces. There's no document/announcement giving Taiwan back to China. Therefore, Taiwan's status is still "To Be Determined". I am not saying it should go independent, but that the status should be voted by the people in Taiwan since it's a democracy.

Similarly, I was trying to understand which part of modern history says that Taiwan is still part of China (after China had given it away?)

There's no need for name calling. I did not just pull something out of thin air. Everything I stated had been documented in many research books.

Glad to see this thread!

I live in Taipei, Taiwan.

There are a  lot of head-fiers here...

However, the audio gears here cost higher than in US in general...

Chiming in from my side! I'm living in Taipei, Taiwan. 

Looks like there aren't that many head-fi'ers here in Taiwan.

Guys can you recommend a good head fi store in Taipei with great selection of stuff and competitive price?
I am planning to visit Taipei next month
post #43 of 45


I just visited http://www.hifi.com.tw for the first time yesterday.  The had a huge selection of things to try.  And it's got many customers and the sales people don't bug you!  I didn't have to pretend like I might want to buy something today.

 

two other places I haven't tracked down yet are:

http://www.x-wind.com.tw

http://www.earshop.url.tw

 

I just got to taiwan a few weeks and would be happy to visit some shops with you if you'd like. (double plus if you can read chinese cuz i can't).

let me know.

 

PS- DISCLAIMER -> I'm no longer an audiophile   (as in, I haven't spent money on headphones in over 5 years), but I'd be happy to check the stores out with another fellow HF'er

Hi, I live in Taiwan but in Tainan in the south.

You missed this store.

https://www.pincha.com.tw They have the woo audio wa234 connected to a Meitner ma-1. This shop is next to the earshop you linked.

Also guanghua digital plaza. This area has two buildings with all sorts of electronics. Cameras, headphones, computers etc. the older building has few smaller headphone stores with like the usual stuff. The new building has an area with vinyls and a collection of headphones. Including the mcintosh mhp1000.

http://www.hifi.com.tw/ Has a good selection of headphones. If you know them. They have a room in the back with their hi-end stuff. Like lcd, hd800, Eddie current amps, hifimans.
