Recent visit to Triode Japan (august 2011)

Mr. J.Yamazaki

I visited Triode on August 19, 2011.

I stayed in Ebisu 恵比寿 (Westin Tokyo) near Shibuya (渋谷). It took 1.5 hours by train from Ebisu to Sengendai( せんげん台駅 a train station in Koshigaya, Saitama Prefecture, Japan). My day’s journey began at the Ebisu station to the HIbiya Line日比谷線 a connecting train from Tobu Isezaki line(東武伊勢崎線) to Sengendaiせんげん台

I clearly remember the heavy rain falling that morning and realized that the train will stop any time due to the heavy rain fall. Because I needed to leave Tokyo the next day, I emailed Mr Yamazaki to let him know that I will take the change to go to Sengendai .

I left my hotel(Westin Tokyo) around 12:30pm towards the Hibiya Subway line; the rain had stopped. From Ebisu to Kita-Senju I took the Hibiya Line. I transfer to ToBu Isezaki Line from Kita-Senju (北千住) I arrived at the Sengendai station AROUND 2:30pm and Mr Yamazaki picked me up from the station. – a 5 minutes drive from the station to his office. Triode is located at Koshigaya越谷市, Saitama Prefecture, 埼玉県 (Its new location since August 2010. .

Triode offers – TARES ( Triode Audio Revival Equipment Support) ie repair, maintenance & Tuneup other high end equipment.

Mr. Yamazaki and I had a nice visit with very good discussion.

A lot of people have asked why the current production shifted to “real cap” instead of “Vitamin-Q”. Vitamin Q is smooth and warm however production stopped this summer. “Real cap” is smooth and a little bit sharp.
