Hello Saccanama

I enjoyed listening to this interview but it is rather a strain, as I have my Mac on full volume and still find it difficult to hear a lot of it. Is there any possibility that the volume could be upped your end for the next interview? With thanks Kalyanasri

Hi Kalyanasri,

I have tried it on 2 Macs here at Adhisthana and they both seem to work fine. Is anybody else having the same problem as Kalyanasri?

Listening on a Mac on headphones it seems loud enough, though there is some crackle in the background. Kalyanasri, can you try with headphones to see if that is better?
