    Hmm am back in Tokyo in April though this is some way from where I'll be based (about 40 mins on the metro according to Google). Might be worth a trip though if I have a free day.

    It does not say what amp the guy is using. That's poor journalism methinks.

    Love to visit someday.

    If you watch Kenrick Sounds You Tube channel, bars and coffee bars with this sort of gear, approach isn't that rare in Japan. I do like the idea, but when idiots who have paid big money to attend a concert can't shut up throughout the gig, what chance is there of these types (very common) to not want to hear the sound of their own voice and the BS that pours forth in such a bar, coffee shop.

    In saying that I do like the idea a lot.
    Regards Neil

    High end systems in cafe's and bars are of no interest to me. I'd rather see 1000 JBL Control One's hanging from the ceiling!

    To be fair, none of the ancilliary equipment used (turntables, arms, cartridges and amplifiers) are mentioned, only the make of the speakers.
