Paul McGowan is back with another question I’ve always wondered about. Audiophile customers at the Record Store would claim that the CD layer of Super Audio CDs sounded better than a regular CD. That didn’t seem likely or even possible. Paul clears it up here, and I’m not surprised at all.
Paul McGowan, co-founder and CEO of PS Audio, is a genius when it comes to audiophile-level sound and equipment. 99% of what he talks about is far beyond my understand and/or budget. (PS Audio’s new FR-30 loudspeakers run about $30 grand USD a pair.) However, Paul is so personable and knowledgeable, that I recommend his videos to non-audiophile peasants like myself. He answers fan questions every day, and offers tours of the PS Audio listening rooms. In this video, Paul reveals that PS Audio are planning a new CD player for 2023 or 2024. The current “parts pandemic” is a very real thing and he goes into detail on the problems this causes. Fascinating guy, interesting video.
