Episode 26 is up and being delivered to all the podcast platforms right now.
In this episode I talk to Dr. Mathias Johansson, Dirac Research co-founder and chief product officer, about the beginnings of the company in Upsala Sweden, its work with BMW, the current Dirac offerings for audiophiles, the differences between Dirac software and Dirac built into hardware, and many general DSP & room correction topics, plus a very fun round of ten bonus questions. Enjoy :~)

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.
