It has been a wild ride for audio in the past year, and PTA’s The Occasional Podcast has captured some pretty influential moments. To recap all the amazing releases that happened, Marc, Mohammad, Grover and Brian all throw down their favorite picks for products of the season of the show.
The Occasional Podcast is hitting their stride mid season 6 with the products of the season, with last week’s conversation A History Of The LS3/5a Loudspeaker and earlier episodes like A Beginners Guide To Wireless HiFi, How Records Are Made plus A Guide To Tube Amplifiers and our season opener What Is Accuracy and Why Audiophiles Love Jazz? but don’t miss last season’s finale TOP’s Best Of Season 5 Awards Plus A Visit to Van Halen’s 5150 Studios or our revisited interview with the late legendary recording engineer Al Schmitt, and the interview with digital audio designer Mike Moffat from the season 5 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. Season three had interviews with such audio legends as Jeff Joseph, Bill Dudleston, Nelson Pass and even Rob Watts.
If you would like more from PTA staff writer and engineer Dave McNair, you can hear also him exploring all things Mastering and explaining The Loudness Wars, and if you haven’t checked out our beginners guide to reel-to-reel playback, it’s definitely worth a listen.
