Steve Martz and Andrew Mason of THX

Home Theater United Podcast

June 28, 2021 730 PM EST Special Guests/topic: THX and the Onyx lossless DAC Amplifier with: Andrew Mason, Senior Staff Engineer, Product Development, THX Ltd.  Steve Martz, Vice President, Global Technology, THX Ltd. THX Onyx - a powerful DAC/amp for your headphones How to set up THX Onyx - YouTube https://www.thx.com/blog/why-dac-amps-matter-thx-onyx/ Reconnection: We took a show off.  Had been going pretty hard for 5 months since start of year.  Good to take a break but lining up more guests now. Can’t guarantee it will remain every 2 weeks but that’s the target.  Open to guest suggestions and connections from our listeners Sam’s going to CEDIA!  Anyone else gonna make it? Looks like CES is a GO and Sam will try to make it there too. Brian wrote a screenplay! Hoping to have a screenwriter focused podcast episode soon. THX Introduction :  THX has a storied history in home theater, first via George Lucas, then as an independent company, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Razer.  THX began certifying theaters for a quality audio and video experience so that movie goers could enjoy the film the way the creator intended. THX took this concept into the home theater product sector, offering the THX Certification service to worthy brands who can pass and have verified through hundreds of tests the high quality experience provided by their product.  In recent years, THX has also evolved into providing such technologies, in addition to its THX Certification service - such technologies as THX Spatial Audio and THX AAA.    And now - its very first introduction direct to consumers of a product with the same mission - to empower quality entertainment where and when you want it with the THX DAC/Amp, a portable solution for enjoying lossless, crystal clear audio from your portable device over wired headphones.  Interview : How has the Razer transition been going?.  How do Razer and THX work together?  On the THX web site there are 366 THX certified products but only one that is THX branded.  Is this a one off or the start of a trend?  Will we see more THX branded products?  Consumer products or are production products a possibility? It looks like THX certification is still going.  What does that mean in a world of Atmos and Lossless?Since the razer acquisition it seems like THX is in a prime position to help guide consumers to higher quality AV. Please tell us a bit more about THX Onyx productWho is this product aimed at? What if I don’t have ‘golden ears’? Can consumer level headphones benefit from THX Onyx? If not, where’s a good starting point for headphones that do benefit? Does it work with the new Apple Lossless / THX Spatial audio? What do you need to get the most from THX Onyx?  Is Apple Music enough now or are Tidal / Amazon Music still better options? What’s going on with Deep Note?  Are you / did you really replace it? What’s next for THX?   Quick Good Bad and Ugly: Sam - Fast and Furious 9   Brian - Glory Guests - Parasite, Thor Ragnarok

225. Andrew Mason: When Your Plan B is a Billion-Dollar Idea

Love Your Work

Andrew Mason (@andrewmason) started a little website called The Point. An investor friend of his gave him a million dollars in seed money. The Point failed, but Andrew then used that seed money to pivot his idea into the fastest-growing company in history. Groupon hit a $1 billion valuation in only sixteen months. For someone with no entrepreneurial experience at all, this was crazy. Yahoo! offered to buy the company for $3 billion. Google offered more than $5 billion. Early on, the media wanted to adore him. After the company went public, the media wanted to abhor him. Groupon’s current valuation: a modest $400 million. After Groupon, Andrew started a company called Detour. Once again, the idea failed. But once again, he was able to find a great clue for a new company in the company he was already building. Now, Andrew is the CEO of Descript. Descript is like a word processor for audio. If you’ve ever tried to edit spoken-word audio, you know how time-consuming and frustrating it can be. Descript makes editing spoken word audio as easy as editing a Word doc. With Descript, not only can you edit spoken-word audio by copying, pasting, and deleting text, but you can also edit by typing words. Descript’s Overdub feature can actually create audio based upon your voice. All you have to do is feed it several hours of training data. If you listened to the episodes here on Love Your Work in December, you heard my Descript Overdub voice double fill in for me on the intros. If you’re going to love your work, you have to read the signals the market gives you. Sometimes plan “B” is a billion-dollar idea. In this conversation, you’ll learn: After going from having no experience as an entrepreneur, to founding the fastest-growing company ever, how has Andrew approached building his new company differently from how he built Groupon? Andrew says at Groupon there was “more tolerance for assholes.” What has Andrew learned about building a company culture where the mission doesn’t get in the way of kindness. Andrew said he had a “useful naïveté” about the money that he first raised. How does he still hold onto this naïveté, even as a seasoned entrepreneur? Thanks for sharing my work!

Descript with Andrew Mason

Machine Learning – Software Engineering Daily

Descript is a software product for editing podcasts and video. Descript is a deceptively powerful tool, and its software architecture includes novel usage of transcription APIs, text-to-speech, speech-to-text, and other domain-specific machine learning applications. Some of the most popular podcasts and YouTube channels use Descript as their editing tool because it provides a set of features that are not found in other editing tools such as Adobe Premiere or a digital audio workstation. Descript is an example of the downstream impact of machine learning tools becoming more accessible. Even though the company only has a small team of machine learning engineers, these engineers are extremely productive due to the combination of APIs, cloud computing, and frameworks like TensorFlow. Descript was founded by Andrew Mason, who also founded Groupon and Detour, and Andrew joins the show to describe the technology behind Descript and the story of how it was built. It is a remarkable story of creative entrepreneurship, with numerous takeaways for both engineers and business founders.
