    Audiophile Style Podcast: Episode 4 | Schiit Audio Interview

    Episode 4 is up and being delivered to all the podcast platforms right now. This episode is a discussion with Schiit Audio co-founder Jason Stoddard. We talk about his early days at Sumo Electronics, meeting the other Schiit Audio co-founder Mike Moffat from Theta Digital, which product put Schiit Audio on the map, why Schiit creates its multi-bit DACs rather than using something more standard, and the genesis and design goals of the flagship Yggdrasil DAC. At the end Jason answers the bonus questions with candid answers about music, food and even comedians.

    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 huge 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

    These have been some of the best podcasts I have heard.  The production value is great.   I feel much more in-touch with the companies involved. The DCS interview really helped inform me about their business and how they support customers in the long run.   The value there is huge.



    I know that this is a lot of work !  


    Thank you Chris for bringing them to us.  ✌️
