Today Dr. Paul and I talk about a “hypothetical” audio conference, and how we might reinvent it. With the advent of lifestyle systems, powered speakers with great DACs and sonic integration, it’s time we re-think how people consume these audio conferences, and how manufacturers approach them.
We’d love your suggestions on how you would like to experience an audio conference. What would you like to see included? How much would you pay to attend? Where should it be located? Hit us up here with your suggestions: http://beginneraudiophile.com/contact/
