Episode 27 is up and being delivered to all the podcast platforms right now.
In this episode I talk to Danny McKinney and Aleksander Radisavljevic of RAAL-requisite.
Based in both the US and Serbia, RAAL-requisite is a partnership between RAAL and requisite audio. HiFi lovers are familiar with the terrific RAAL ribbon tweeters that Alex has developed over the years, but many are likely unfamiliar with requisite audio’s long history of making professional equipment for some the best musicians in the world, and Danny’s background as a professional musician prior to creating products for musicians and studios.
As you’ll hear, this partnership is great, not only because of the background of these guys, but also because each one compliments the other with a unique set of skills.
Given that my absolute favorite headphone ever made is the RAAL-requisite SR1a, listeners can imagine how thrilled I was to hear all about the product’s development, successes and failures in the process, and to learn much more about what makes it so special.
You’ll want to stick around to the end of the show to hear about two new products RAAL-requisite will debut at the 2021 SoCal CanJam show in September and for a spirited round of 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.
