[About the Event] 

This event has been created for those who want to hear their favorite music on the best and finest Japanese sound system.


Nihon Onkyo Engineering Co., Ltd., one of Japan’s leading companies that designs sound related. On October 27th (Friday), we will invite to our laboratory in Chiba Prefecture to experience the company’s “Acoustic Grove System (AGS)”, a patented product that alters sound fields to create amazing acoustic effects. Come and experience the ideal space for sound developed based on Kyoto’s Cedar Forests.


As there is no better harmony than that of music and alcohol, but not just “any alcohol”, a qualified sake professional will guide attendees through a flight of top grade Japanese sake from some of the most renowned sake breweries from across Japan.


Please feel free to bring the music you would like to listen to ! You can bring either a CD or USB with high resolution files (PCM and FLAC files are usable. DSD files cannot be used).
