#53: 2023 Audio Trendwatch: Why Quality Is The Hot New Normal

This is a very special 2023 Audio Trendwatch / #AMA edition of the HARMAN Audio Talks podcast answering some excellent audience questions following a packed LinkedIn Live broadcast from Las Vegas at HARMAN ExPLORE.

Our three wise guests are: Guy Hammett who bought the gift of data, Dr. Sean Olive who bought the gift of science, and Dave Tovissi who bought the gift of passion. I bought Elvis, but you will have to listen to get any more details on that 🙂

Tune in for a fascinating Q&A on all things audio in 2023 and beyond.
