Good Sound to Great Sound

About Open Audio Lab

Audio: The most common music listening style these days is to listen to streaming music with a smartphone and earphones, and at home with wireless speakers. SONY, BOSE, and Beats sell earphones and portable speakers with reasonably high sound quality, so many people can be quite satisfied with them. However, if you listen to music with a real great audio system, you must feel as if you were in a concert hall or a live house. There are audio systems that produce truly impressive sound. We pursue the best sounding audio systems at affordable prices.

Open: For reasonable price and customizability, we will use open systems and open source software - such as Raspberry Pi and Music Player Daemon (MPD).

Lab: Not only using existing software and hardware, we are developing new software (e.g. yaMPC and get_cover). We also measure sound quality of the audio systems both subjectively (e.g. blind testing) and objectliby with measuring instruments.

About yaMPC

yaMPC is yet another Client App (or Remote App) for Music Player Daemon (MPD). Its object is to quickly find albums or songs you want and play them comfortably. For that objective, yaMPC provides tabs and buttons (instead of hierarchal menus) so that you can quickly choose screens and functions and find albums and songs by various conditions.
