Based in Sizuoka,Japan we were established as Robert Koda LLC in 2008.
Our brand exists because we have something uniquely special and timeless to offer serious music lovers. Our values are one of truth in the spirit of music as in business. Our customers are the commissioners of each amplifier and are therefore of great importance to us.
While it is true that Robert worked under the guise of the legendary Hiroyasu Kondo of Audio Note (Kondo) Japan in Tokyo, Robert is actually self-trained and an independently motivated creator of audio electronics.
Interest and research into the interaction between technique and musical satisfaction began at the very early age of 12. While within the era of the transistor, ironically it was vacuum tube that first captured Robert's attention.
It was a musical home from which Robert was raised, music and high-end audio always important. His mother and father's purchasing of a new home would invariably involve the analysis of acoustic suitability of the main living room before further consideration.
More than 16 years experience in the field of high end audio distribution, retail, installation, servicing and all the contact available through this career with vast arrays of equipment of those times fueled a hounding sense that things could be done by him and be done right played a major role in his life and lead to the development of a system that by 2004 captured the results of this life long work.
Its architecture was both simple yet elegant and redefined the inherent structure of digital / analogue playback technique. To visiting audiophiles it yielded a propinquity to completeness not experienced before on replayed music. The system was deemed startling in its unique ability to transcend the sound of both transistor and vacuum tube - The amplifying devise.
Drawn from those works, refined, perfected and matured Robert Koda now offers a select few the opportunity to own and enjoy these hand crafted works of musical beauty.
"The desire now to offer fellow music listeners the same complete listening
experience finally persuaded me to produce commercially available options -
the Robert Koda brand."
