— Why it’s OK to get things wrong
— Why we can’t completely trust our ears/the importance of measurements
— Audio myths about loudspeaker cables, phantom power with ribbon mics, and others
— And much more
About Our Guest: Ethan has been pursuing a career in audio and music since he was a teenager, and he’s gone on to fulfill that mission and much more. In addition to authoring “The Audio Expert,” he’s had a hugely diverse career as an inventor and technology developer over four-plus decades.
Ethan’s also noted as an audio mythbuster and is quite effective at that quest as well, as evidenced by his Audio Myths workshop from the October 2009 AES show, available for viewing on YouTube. By the way, it’s at 400,000-plus views and still climbing at this point. Be sure to check out his full bio at ethanwiner.com as well as his articles on ProSoundWeb.
