    Audiophile Style Podcast: Episode 1 | Roon Labs Interview

    It's a new year and it's time for something new here at Audiophile Style. Actually, what's old is new again. I launched a podcast back in 2009, but quickly realized "nobody" was listening to podcasts back then. I put the show on hiatus, was a guest on a few other podcasts, and waited until I was ready to fire things back up. Today is the day to (re)introduce the Audiophile Style Podcast.


    Podcast Setup.jpgAs much as I'd love to deliver this show to everyone in lossless high resolution audio, the podcast platforms only accept MP3. So, I record everything as lossless WAV files, then convert to 320 Kbps MP3 to give everyone the best quality currently possible. Given that I'm using a Merging Technologies Anubis analog to digital converter to record, I technically could do everything at DXD (384 kHz) or DSD256, but that's a bit over the top, even for me.


    Anyway, let's get to business. I have the first six episodes already in the can and can't wait to share them with everyone. In this week's episode I interview three members of the Roon Labs team. It was fun to hear about the company's start as Sooloos in New York City back in the day, its acquisition by Meridian, and it subsequent spinout into its own software company. The first episode has a dynamic range value of 12, so people may need to adjust their volume levels. 


    A huge thanks to David Chesky for allowing me to use the track East Harlem, from the album The Body Acoustic. The album can be purchased and downloaded at 24/96 from the Chesky Records site here


    You can find / subscribe to the Audiophile Style Podcast on every podcast platform known to man. If I missed a platform some people use, just let me know. Here are links to the most popular platforms.

    I remembered some members asked for Ram buffering.. as mentioned above for improving SQ. In this vain Chris maybe you pick out some AS member questions to ask but i can see the podcast was nice and informal so nothing too confrontational i hope.

    Suprised it is such a small team though for the size i perceived it was...

    More podcasts please, that was great.

    Happy new  year all

    Not listen yet, but how to listen to podcasts in Roon ? 
    Shouldn’t that be a feature available ?

    The question was asked in the podcast :~)
