To ensure the best possible sound quality, hosts should use Direct Connect to run their show. Although dialing-in via phone might be more convenient, our research shows that sound quality matters - listeners are more likely to start and finish listening to high-quality shows.

When using Direct Connect, make sure to use the latest versions of Chrome or Firefox. There must be a reliable internet connection. We’ve done a few stress tests and know that Direct Connect works with 0.78 Mbps (780 kbs) download and .33 Mbps (330 kbs) upload speeds with at least 100ms latency. *** This is only for one device connected to the internet, if other devices or equipment are connected via wifi or hard wired, a higher connection will be needed.

To test the connection, head to and click “Begin Test”. Compare your test results to our numbers. If you cannot achieve these speeds, feel free to connect with a telephone.
