A Note From the Publisher

The author is neither a manufacturer nor a retailer of Hi-Fi products. An electrical engineer by profession, the author brings a lifelong passion in music and its satisfactory reproduction to bear upon the most basic of questions. Is Hi-Fi for you? This fundamental question has never been answered. Until now. The author's considerable love of music, and experience of using high-fidelity systems, is marshalled to this end. Satisfactory sound reproduction of your favourite music at low cost is easier than you think; high-fidelity sound reproduction while retaining good value is a lot harder than it might appear.

This book had me answer the question, yes Hi-Fi is for me. A quick guidebook that just leads you to understand why you may be interested in Hi-Fi and how to go about it. How to situate your equipment for the best scenario, what investments should be made, and if you need to make them at all. John O'Reilly almost lost me with the early chapter on vinyl, but in the back of my mind, I thought, maybe he wants people to stop finding vinyl records so he could get them all. But I continued on the interesting propositions of Hi-Fi and then O'Reilly eased the tension with his partially different take on vinyl, which made it all okay in my book. But yes, Hi-Fi is for me, and midway through the book, I was already looking for DACs.
