In this month's DIY podcast, I talk to Dafydd Roche of Expat Audio about their new Eden Mic Preamp. Download the mp3 or listen on iTunes . Subscribe to the DIYRE podcast Dafydd and I get into some good stuff about mic preamp and general audio design, including: The difference between surface mount (SMD/SMT) and through hole components in terms of sound and performance. Are SMDs good for audio? Should we audio folks resist industry's march toward all surface-mount parts? The concept of "parasitics" in audio electronics design and when their effects can be critical. Dafydd gives us a guided tour of the Eden circuit from the input to output jacks--a great way to get a grasp on the basics of mic preamp design.
