32: Emotiva’s Founder, Dan Laufman | CES Quick Hits on AMT and True Wireless Earbuds

Back from a week in Vegas, we’ve got a doozy for you this episode.  After a quick hit of CES (The Consumer Electronics Show) in Vegas (Check out pictures at @beginneraudiophile) Michael talks about Air Motion Transformers (which were a big theme this year) and True Wireless Earbuds.  Then we jump into a GREAT interview with Dan Laufman, founder of Emotiva.

In this episode, Michael O’Neal (@beginneraudiophile) and Patrick Norton (@patricknorton) catch up on some Black Friday (I know, I know…) purchases.  Michael talks about his home theater install, Pat talks about an amp and a set of gaming headphones he’s testing out, and we answer a few questions.

Question.  (reply on Instagram or at beginneraudiophile@gmail.com) Do you guys want to hear home theater/lifestyle content?  Or keep it strictly to 2 Channel?

30: Talking Roon with Dipin Sehdev from Roon Labs

Roon.  What is it?  Do you need it?

The best way I can describe Roon is that it’s a simplifier. We have all of these disparate music sources and end points in our house, and Roon talks to them all, and puts them into one cohesive system.  Today we chat with Dipin Sehdev, VP of Marketing of roonlabs.com, and discuss how and why Roon originated, what it’s meant to do, and how easy it is to use.

Dipin was also nice enough to give us a free 30 day trial of Roon.  (Normally it’s 2 weeks, so double your pleasure!)
