Podcast #47 – Rick Rubin, Dolby Atmos & audiophile red flags

  • This podcast episode comes after last week’s editorial on The Madness of Dolby Atmos for Music but was recorded before it. You could say that my mic-d-up conversation with Michael Lavorgna about Benn Jordan’s video Gaslighting Your Fans w/ Dolby ATMOS™ was the catalyst for that post.

    Also in this podcast, our first in a while, Lavorgna and I discuss new powered loudspeakers from Klipsch, new passive loudspeakers from McIntosh, Rick Rubin’s recent appearance on 60 Minutes and audiophile red flags, a concept introduced by US retailer Listen Up.

    Listen via SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, TuneIn or the embedded player below.
