Audio Interviews

I’ve had the good fortune to visit home theater owners all over the country, and to sit down with home theater experts for video interviews (which you can view when you order the full course). On this section of the website, I have some audio interviews for you. These are all candid interviews with various experts and leading authorities in the home theater industry. As you’ll hear, this is simply me talking with them about home theater, and letting them share their expertise with you!

Feel free to play them here directly, come back anytime or share this link with your fellow home theater enthusiasts.

For people who buy the book, you are also able to directly download all these interviews as MP3 files, so
you can play them in your car, move to another computer,
or learn from these experts as you wish. Only Members can download the Audio Interview files.
