DSD Audio -- Join the Cutting Edge

A panel discussion Friday 2pm-3:30pm  Meet the Artists, Engineers and Manufacturers pioneering DSD music delivery to fans around the world

We've come a long way since the California Audio Show of 2010. Blue Coast Records debuted DSD audio delivery through the internet using live recordings made at that show.  Since then, dozens of companies have jumped on the bandwagon to support DSD audio with song managers, DSD DACs, and new music.  At CAS3, we'll bring artists, engineers, and manufacturers together to answer your questions about about setup, recording while discussing the future of this incredible format.
