Podcast: Arcam Radia, JBL Classic and Roon — Interview with Jim Garrett

In this episode, Jim Garrett of Harman Luxury Audio reveals key details about Arcam’s Radia series hi-fi components, JBL’s MKII loudspeakers, and their acquisition of Roon.

In our last podcast episode with Jim Garrett, head of product strategy and planning at Harman Luxury Audio, the focus was on JBL. This time it’s Arcam of Cambridge, the British hi-fi brand who just introduced the sleek new Radia series of audio components, which is comprised of five new models.

Although we’ve already covered unboxings of the flagship A25 Class-G integrated amplifier and ST5 network music streamer, Jim reveals key details about each product, how they work together, and what’s different between each model.

In addition, Jim shares updates about JBL’s “vintage looking” Classic hi-fi components which are now shipping along with MKII (2nd generation) versions of the JBL Classic L100, L82 and L52 Loudspeakers.

Finally, we talk about Harman’s surprise acquisition of Roon and what to expect going forward.
