Guest: Robert Bean, COO of Kubotek USA & Haniwa Audio, Marlborough, MA

Topic: A Systems Approach to Audio

There is no July meeting. Normally, we do not have August meetings but schedules, and our interests in Haniwa Technology dictate otherwise.

Bob Bean, COO of Kubotek USA and Haniwa Audio (Marlborough, MA) will present “A Systems Approach to Audio” where every step in the signal chain is controlled to faithfully reproduce the incoming music signal at the speaker system. The Haniwa integrated control preamplifier-amplifier uses proprietary Haniwa technology to control the frequency and phase (timing) of the incoming music signal so that it is precisely reproduced (See

The technology behind Haniwa will be discussed and demonstrated and we will listen to some hi-res music on the system. Haniwa Audio will supply and demonstrate an entire music system (cartridge & turntable to loudspeakers).

See this link for information on the technology behind Haniwa ( Bob Bean is an engineer (BSME/MSME). Questions and answers on all their products will follow their presentation.

There will be refreshments at 5:30.
