Located within Potato Head Hong Kong, the Music Room houses over 8,000 records, hand-picked by German DJ and producer Johnny Hiller and selection of renowned dealers.
The system itself ticks all the right boxes and has been assembled from across the world. It features JBL Pro Blue series loudspeakers, Macintosh tube pre amps and amplifiers, a custom-made rotary mixer from Japan, vintage Klipschorn speakers and, of course, a pair of Technics SL-1200s.
Open now, the Music Room will host a series of listening events, from classic LP evenings to a monthly Ethiopian jazz 7″s night, while you can catch music from across the soul spectrum on normal nights.
Find the Music Room at 100 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun in Hong Kong. Click here for more details and check out some more pictures from the space below.
