Ryan Smith began his journey in the audio world when he moved to New York in 1995. In the late 90s, he worked in various recording studios and other "odd jobs" in New York City. This eventually led to a job as an assistant engineer at Right Track Recording in Manhattan, where Ryan had the opportunity to work alongside legendary engineers. In 2002, Ryan moved on to mastering. He joined Sterling Sound, where he has worked for over 15 years. With the current vinyl resurgence, Ryan has become one of the most sought after vinyl specialists.

The slower a record spins, the more it's sound quality is affected. In order to deliver the best possible sound, the record must spin faster (45 RPM). However, when a record spins faster, the amount of information it can hold is reduced. The desire to improve sound quality, while ensuring adequate playtime, is a problem that still persists today. Obviously, the "convenience" drawback isn't an issue when you're willing to pay more for two 12-inch records instead of just one.
