At last! Everything you need to know to become a knowledgeable buyer of today's home entertainment systems.
Robert Harley, Editor-in-Chief of The Absolute Sound, tells you everything you need to know to become a better listener and better buyer of quality high-fidelity components. With this book you will discover how to get the best sound for your money; how to identify the weak links in your system and upgrade where it will do the most good; how to setup and tweak your system to get maximum performance from equipment you already own; and, most of all, how to become a more perceptive and appreciative listener. This book makes hi-fi more fun!
In 15 fact-filled chapters and four appendices—covering everything from the basics to technical matters (in plain English!)—this book helps you to reap the benefits of Mr. Harley's years of reviewing experience, saving you time, trouble, trial and error. Your knowledge is as important as your money, maybe more so, because it's possible to assemble a wonderfully satisfying stereo system for far less money than you might think.
