Podcast #42 – Thorens TD1500, NVIDIA Shield TV Pro & CAF 2022

  • In this latest episode of the Darko.Audio podcast, Twittering Machines’ Michael Lavorgna returns from Capital Audio Fest 2022 to regale us with stories of his favourite exhibits. I dig into the new WiiM Pro network streamer, revisit the Logitech Squeezebox Touch and explain why the NVIDIA Shield Pro is no longer the Roon endpoint it once was. I also detail a newly-compiled separates system that fronts a pair of KEF Q150 loudspeakers – a stone-cold bargain at US$299 – and a newly-purchased turntable: the Thorens TD1500. As usual, Lavorgna and I round out the episode with a pair of recommended albums.
