Episode 10 is up and being delivered to all the podcast platforms right now. In this episode I talk with Bryston CEO James Tanner. We discuss the past, present and future of the company, including its new change in ownership, its push into digital music servers a decade ago, its recent loudspeaker initiative, and its modular DAC/Preamp the BR20. The show finishes with two album recommendations and a round of bonus questions where there are no wrong answers.

As 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 using a Neumann TLM 103 transformerless cardioid condenser microphone, 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.
A big 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.
