does Haniwa realize 3D Audio?
Make the output equal the input! This
is the driving philosophy of Haniwa. The music output at the
speaker should be the same as the input from the recorded media,
whether from a CD player, turntable, or streaming file. Make
the output equal to the input is quite simple from a philosophy
standpoint, but impossible to achieve in typical component analog
system and digital systems.
Haniwa has spent decades developing a
music reproduction system that achieves this goal with precise
timing, phase, and frequency control that we call Haniwa
3D Audio. We call it 3D Audio because
Haniwa recreates a precise 3D soundstage in your listening room
so you can get as close as possible to the original performance.
Robert Bean, Haniwa Audio, said hopefully,
we will see you on-line or in person. Our product designer,
Dr. Kubo, will be live on video from Japan, and
I will be in Massachusetts. Building on our past two BAS meetings,
we will highlight the phase coherent Haniwa speaker system.
For this meeting, we will be discussing analog front ends and
other new advancements from Haniwa tone arm development
and the CVC (Current-to-Voltage-Converter). The Haniwa CVC allows
sub-ohm cartridges to work in any system by creating a current
loop on the cartridge side and using an MM compatible voltage
output on the phono preamp side. You have probably already seen
the article in Stereophile reporting on this brand-new type
The current loop interacts with the mechanical
loop to produce a very stable tracking system. Dr. Kubo will
be up and awake halfway around the globe to answer questions
about his analog theories and the CVC from the group.

explanation here: www.haniwaaudio.com/technology
Here are music samples you can
listen to and/or download before the meeting.
These are high resolution 24/192 PCM
They were digitized from LP's using Haniwa's Current Loop Cartridge
(.2 ohm impedance) and CDV Current to Voltage converter at ~.5
grams of tracking.
The samples are clips from the following
BachOrgan_Sample.wav 339MB - to demonstrate bass reproduction
at low frequencies
360MB - to demonstrate spatial and sound stage in a classical
196MB - to demonstrate coherency with close to ideal step
and impulse response curves
594MB - to demonstrate more modern rock music reproduction
329MB - to demonstrate spatial and sound stage in a jazz
514MB - to demonstrate spatial and sound stage in a folk
Refreshments will be available at 3:30
