He's not only mentioned, the whole clip is about him and with him.

Not only does he drip his solder and make lousy joints but his lead trimmings are terrible.

I don't think that was quite the point.. Now I wish I understood at least a little Japanese.. The world of Japanese tube audio is largely lost to the West..

I have about a dozen MJ currently, and one issue of this magazine has close to the same number of articles in it as an entire year AE. Tells you how seriously they take the hobby in Japan..

I was a bit surprised at Sakuma San's solder iron, I figure given the investment in tubes, transformers, speakers, etc. He could have afforded a slightly better solder iron..

This guy is quite well respected amongst the cognoscenti, and I have heard a few amplifiers based on his designs.. Good sounding..

He doesn't handle his LPs very carefully, either.

japanese passion ;

it just seems to us that he solder with that iron ;

I can bet that that iron isn't important to him at all ........ at least not in way usual to us ;

man who listen mono, who ( beside other things ) place his lowther in a barrel , have his own vision of sound and electronic .

just look again that video and see how he's looking that 6SN7-ish tube......


somewhere in "beyond the ariel" thread ( if I rem. corr.) Lyn sez few words about his experience during visit to Sakuma's restaurant...

well - I can't find that post now (sleezy search function is somewhat in fight with me ) , and I can't be sure that Lyn was in question ..... but point is - when you live your passion, it really doesn't matter how that looks to other ......

just think how common DiyA fellow looks to common normal guy ......

obsessed freak , no doubt

Default I have a mate

I have a friend who designs amps which sound harsh and brittle but he likes them. He is obsessed with tinning his soldering iron and is constantly at me about my trashy iron which is temperature controlled ok maybe its not a haturi hanzo iron but it works.
My point is this guys Zen is about the sound not the mechanics of soldering.. i can kind of dig that and when he dies he wont be too worried about having left pristine records for some dude to buy at AKE HABRE ( i have a mate who went there in tokyo and it is amazing according to him)
I admire him for his legend.. sure I can solder better than him but i cant design like him
Thats my zens worth
