Recently I stumbled upon the great 'Home Theater Geeks' Podcast series by Scott Wilkinson of UltimateAV and Home Theater Magazines. They take the form of 1 on 1 interviews with notable individuals from the audiophile and home theater world.
One particular Podcast episode that is of interest is an interview with Floyd Toole. In case you don't know, Floyd is one of the pre-eminent acoustics research professionals of our time and has contributed significantly to our understanding of how we perceive various acoustical phenomena related to speakers and sound reproduction in homes.
