natasha nakamura's diary
Wandered into the Sony Building in the Ginza. On the fourth floor, you can make an appointment to go into a special listening room where just you and a Sony guy can listen to Sony's new speakers and a phenomenal new amp/CD player. I hear Glenn Gould playing the Goldberg Variations and some of the Symphonie Fantastique, where it seemed I could hear every instrument individually. I was in tears, just beautiful.
The problem is that if I installed this system in my tiny apartment, the sound would shatter my sole window. Another problem is that the amp/CD player is only made to order and costs about 800,000 yen, but hey, what's life all about?
