• The Next Track Podcast - DACs





    Hello Guys - Just a quick note during this usually relaxed week between major holidays. I was recently a guest on The Next Track podcast to discuss DACs. The information is fairly light and easy to understand, and may be valuable for those who don't eat, sleep, and breathe digital audio. Give it a listen and subscribe to The Next Track is you're interested. Kirk and Doug are down to earth guys who love music and computers, similar to many readers of CA. I hope you find the 35 minute episode helpful and enjoyable.

      Yeah, over the years I've used so many of Doug's scripts. Very good stuff.

      Chris it is too bad that somehow everyone that has an interest in improving basic sound quality with modern music "players" cannot be notified of this particular podcast. I listen to it often also. You were so informative without getting too technical. Occasionally the threads here can get very deep and "confuse the issue with facts!"" Your advice was spot on and i learned quite a bit myself. Thank you for taking time to do the show and putting it on your site.

      i have Kirk. i have also told everyone about this website as well as yours. Near as I can figure, I get 70% of my ACCURATE (and intelligible) information regarding improving SQ from my audio systems (as well as being amused by the discourse at times) and how to more efficiently use my Apple "toys" from Computer Audiophile and Kirkville. You two gentlemen are living a dream for so many. To turn your avocations into vocations.
