Thanks for putting this together Danny. An enjoyable watch / listen. 

Always fun to mix things up and Daryl’s style makes it easy to interview!

 

good stuff... more to come!

Thanks for the interview, but I'm sorry to say I found it very disappointing.  For me, it had an excessive Fan-Boy tenor.   How many times did Danny say "Amazing!" after Mr. Wilson comments?  (I didn't count but I'd guess over 20 times?)  It came off like an Info-mercial for Wilson Audio.

 

So much more of interest could have been discussed.  Take a listen to the Audio Stream interviews.  They might be a good guide for improving the next interview?!

 

Finally, I have no doubt that Wilson speakers are some of the best out there in AudiophiliaLand, but personally, it was hard to stomach Mr Wison's constant reference to their "Art."   I'm sure he thinks his speakers are aesthetic wonders, but I find their robotic designs to be a classic case of form and function NOT working together.  There are a lot of ugly speakers out there and there are some beautiful ones out there.  In my opinion, the Wilsons are emphatically in the ugly category.  I'm sure they sound wondrous-- just turn those lights down low!

Perhaps interviews can serve a different audience than just you. Couldn't you conclude that, "So much more of interest could have been discussed" after every interview ever conducted?

I tried that once. I'd rather stick a pencil in my neck than listen again. 

 

P.S. I will not publish a rambling interview where anyone talks about what they had for dinner the previous night and takes 30 minutes to get to a single point.

I primary point I heard over and over again is "Wilson Audio is AMAZING."   It's nice for you that you are so smitten with Wilson Audio, however, it does not make for a very interesting interview.

 

The Audio Stream interviews actually explore the designers thought process and tech explorations with some intellectual curiosity, imho.  

 

Hopefully, you might someday take this criticism as an opportunity to refine your skills.  Defensiveness won't get you there, that's for sure!
