Episode 15 is up and being delivered to all the podcast platforms right now. We are happy to announce the Audiophile Style podcast is one of very few podcast now available via the Samsung Free app on many Samsung devices.
In this episode I interview McIntosh Group Co-CEO Jeff Poggi about growing up in a small town in Massachusetts, getting his MBA at Duke, working for Harmon and Bose before joining McIntosh. We talk extensively about the new McIntosh Group car audio partnership with Jeep and Maserati. Jeff goes into great detail about the process of working with major auto manufacturer and creating a reference level audio system that's McIntosh through & through.

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.
