This week’s episode of our seasonal, high fidelity podcast features none other than Andrew Jones of ELAC. While ELAC may be the most current bullet point on his resume, Andrew has a long history making loudspeakers for the hifi masses – including big successes in the budget realm with Pioneer and others.
But high value, low cost speakers isn’t the only thing he’s worked on. Andrew Jones’ extensive past includes work with TAD, KEF and more. The Occasional Podcast checks in with the prolific designer for a second time to see what has transpired in his world, in one of the craziest years on record. You can find our first interview with Andrew way back in season one, and get a good since of his history and experience in the industry.
Episode 7 covers off on tons of new ground, including Jones’ thoughts on new meta materials in speaker design, the pandemic’s effect on the industry and more.
The Occasional Podcast is making its way though season 5 with Andrew Jones, but don’t miss our conversation from last week’s Subwoofers – Tips, Tricks and Setup, or even our interview audio legend Mike Moffat from the season opener. Also available for download is last season’s interviews with Heinz Lichtenegger, president of Pro-Ject. You can also check out Budgeting – From Entry Level To High End, Getting Started With Vinyl Playback, The Occasional Beginner’s Guide To Digital Audio and our take on the “Loudness Wars” which has been a highlight for the season. Season three had interviews with such audio legends as Jeff Joseph, Bill Dudleston, Nelson Pass and even Rob Watts. We had an amazing response from our show with engineer Dave McNair exploring all things Mastering, and if you haven’t checked out our beginners guide to reel-to-reel playback, it’s definitely worth a listen.
