    “After reading it, you will likely consider this book to be required reading for all audio professionals, regardless of technical background, who are interested in creating better sounding audio. I know that I do.”

    – Jim Kaiser, Journal of the AES, March 2008

    “I just received my book in the mail. Bob, you did a great job with the 2nd edition. This version does not read as clinical as the first edition making it an easier read. I really like the layout and updated info you put in the book.”

    – Glenn Bucci, Revelation Sound Studio
