Our latest feature is an interview with Terry Dorn of Audio Research Corporation by our own Ken Gould. Terry answers questions about how Audio Research was started and gives us some background on their founder, William Johnson, and his design philosophies. Then Terry discusses how Audio Research designs and builds their highly-acclaimed power amplifiers, preamplifiers, and CD players and how Audio Research has remained preeminent in the high end electronics world for almost four decades. Finally, Terry talks about what's new at Audio Research, including a description of their newest product, a USB DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter).
