Sake Sound - High Tech Uses for Sake

Posted by Beau Timken in 2013, March, Newsletter
True Sake Satoshi Imamura, and engineer for JVC, had been trying for years to mold speaker cones from wood. When he tried birch, a superb sound enhancer, it cracked. Then one evening in a restaurant, it hit him. He asked the waiter how the chef got his dried squid so chewy and was told it had been soaked in sake. So Imamura did the same with the birch and found that he could bend it into a cone, thanks to the amino acids. The resulting line of speakers ($1,300-$1,700 a pair) has remarkable range and clarity - enough to convince even the most serious audiophiles.
