Stax factory tour and interview in Japan approved during my trip to Tokyo Japan December 6th to... - Page 2

Sorry, my attempt at a joke.  Do you think you'll be able to share some pictures here?  I'm sure we'd all like to see some.

My Japanese is too lousy to do any translating unfortunately. I'm sure a translator could be arranged, but it would cost.

 

I can free up Friday the 7th and fly over. If people are up for a meet that weekend I'll stay overnight.

Sasaki-kan would be our best bet for translation...

Great Arnaud that you can translate.  I should be able to send you the questions for the interview within the next week so that you can get started.  I have also sent you a PM on the Headfi network.  Thanks for your help.

Currawong-  You are more than welcome to come along for the tour and interviews anyway.  I have found a translator.  Arnaud has agreed to translate.  More later.

For all the headfi members and others interested in this thread.  I must make it clear THAT I CAN NOT PUBLISH PHOTOS, WORDS, ETC UNTIL AND IF I HAVE THE FINAL APPROVAL FROM THE STAX EARSPEAKER COMPANY. IF THEY DON'T GIVE ME APPROVAL, NOTHING CAN BE PUBLISHED ANYWHERE.  THIS IS THE AGREEMENT THAT HAS BEEN STRUCK.  The capitol letters are not intentional.

Sent you a series of questions via PM...

Typically, you sign an NDA and in there is a clause about not taking pictures and discussing what you saw with others. You can only publish what they approve.

This is pretty much standard practice by most companies.

wuwhere- Thanks for the advice.  Still it would be great to have these interviews and take the factory tour. Anything more that might occur would be gravy as they say.

Currawong and Arnaud- here at the possible factory tour and interview dates.  We have to finalize ASAP.  December 7,10,11 & 12.  Which works best for you.  Any of these days are fine with me. 

post #26 of 83

The 12th is best for me, followed by the 7th. No other day is possible.

post #27 of 83

Any day is ok with atm. 10-12th is better though.

Okay Currawong and Arnaud- it is going to be on 12/12. I will forward this information onto the Stax USA people who will then forward it to Stax Japan.  Not much else to finalize now.  Thanks.

You're very welcome. I was actually pointing it to others here who might not be aware of such things. And if they don't ask to sign an NDA, its always polite to ask them. I'm not a legal person. I used to work as a manufacturing test engineer and we had contract manufacturers in Asia - Japan, Taiwan and China. Unlike our competitors, we were always at the manufacturing floor watching the workers make our products. We would often see our competitors' products made just next to our assembly line.

 

Sorry for the off-topic.
