  • Audiophile Style Podcast: Episode 20 | Part 2 Rockport Technologies Interview

     

     

     

    Episode 20 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 conclude my interview with the team from Rockport Technologies. Rockport has crafted boutique high end audio products for 3 decades, starting with the Sirius turntable and transitioning into loudspeakers such as it groundbreaking Arakkis and Lyra models. Many Audiophiles who’ve heard Rockport products over the years place these speakers at or near the top of the list for the best loudspeakers speakers in the world.  enjoy :~)

    Current 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 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

    I too am fascinated by Rockport as a company. Not sure when or how but when I saw an image of their "factory" I knew they were an anomaly.

     

    As a person who grew up in a small town and now live in a massive metro area, I was not surprised AT ALL that the Rockport staff sounded so content and relaxed.

     

    I found the podcast segment about how their current flagship speaker is smaller but better than their previous model.
