My DeVore O/Baby speaker review, https://youtu.be/0c8OrTtqx3s
This episode breaks with the audio oriented focus of the program. It's an improvised riff on what it's like to be dead. As me as a long dead Asian person walking the streets of Brooklyn. Hope you like it. Next week, back to audio!
Thanks for listening, lots more to explore on my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/SteveGuttenbergAudiophiliac
I think about sound all the time, do you?
Check out my Audiophiliac YouTube channel Steve Guttenberg Audiophiliac with over 1,200 reviews, interviews, rants, and a lot more!
I've owned Empire, Philips, Linn, Roksan, VPI, and SME belt-drive turntables, but now I'm digging a Technics SL-1200G direct-drive. The journey continues....

My friend Bill Leebens is an audio biz veteran, but before that he worked for UPS for 25 years. He's seen it all, and in our conversation Bill offers detailed advice on how to ship audio (or anything else) safely.
My music journey started when I was 10 or 11 years old with James Brown, followed by Motown, and in early 1964 the Beatles.

Take a deep breath, are we just reshuffling our sound priorities? Also, Steve reveals where the Audiophiliac moniker came from!
Jeff and I have been friends for 10 or 15 years, and he's one of those guys who never fails to turn me onto new music every time I see him. He's also pretty serious audiophile, and as we ramble a bit we never drop the ball. Hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did having it!
Before the Audiophiliac I was a NYC movie theater (and TV station) projectionist. The stories I can tell.
The Audiophiliac’s not really a show report from CanJam 2022 NYC!

In this episode Steve Guttenberg discusses the real costs of designing, manufacturing, and selling audiophile speakers with Tekton Design's Eric Alexander.
He refers to the costs of his tweeters, mids, and woofers from suppliers SB Acoustics and Eminence.
Later in the episode Eric talks about his yet to be released new recording and playback technology, and his new speaker company that will make bespoke, very high-end speakers.
A lot of us have strong feelings about audio and sound, but too often our opinions are based on old information or with little or no direct experience.

I spoke with Klipsch's Roy Delgado just a few days ago, and we really had a good time! I love the man's sense of humor, he always makes me laugh! He's played a large role in designing the Heresy, Forte, Cornwall, LaScalla, and later versions of the Klipschorn! This time we mostly talked about the Klipsch Jubilee's long history, dating back to 1996! Back then Roy was working with the man himself, Paul W. Klipsch, and the Jubilee was to be the brand's new flagship. Well, it wasn't an easy ride, the Jubilee is just now going into full production!
Here's a Zoom interview I did with Roy a few years ago. https://youtu.be/Jv7JZ5Nptqk
Today the Audiophiliac interviews Zu Audio’s Sean Casey about how he started the company and how it’s evolved since 2000. The pandemic and supply chain issues haven’t been easy to deal with, but Sean seems 100% optimistic about the future.
The Audiophiliac confesses he’s losing interest in playing CDs, he’s streaming more and more music from Tidal and Qobuz. AND he’s playing more LPs than he has in years! He was a restless audiophile before he was a reviewer, always looking for new sensations. It’s fun! Not for everyone, but it is for some of us.

Today's episode is all about audiophiles with less than perfect hearing. Which in some ways includes all of us!
“Listening,” Christopher Bell’s short film can be seen on Ken Micallef’s YouTube channel, https://youtu.be/I2ei194N6fg
My friend Michael’s hearing aid is made by Phonak, his equalizer is a Schiit Loki.
I visited Nelson Pass at his home in 2019 for a series of interviews for my YouTube channel. This is where we started, it was a lot of fun.
