Anssi spent most of his life as a hi-fi enthusiast, but he got into building speakers sort of by accident. His speakers are very well respected by that community, but acceptance by the pros was a total surprise.

This interview was recorded live from the speaker evaluation room at Vintage King in Los Angeles.
On the intro I’ll take a look at Facebook launching Lasso to counter Gen-Z favorite TikTok, and a look at the person and event that started the modern recording industry.
