Product Description:

The focus of this edition is with the advances in digital equipment, to provide a complete overview of the state of the art with clear text and diagrams. It includes chapters on DVD and Internet Audio.

Review:

A well-respected textbook in previous versions, this fourth edition of Principles of Digital Audio is a substantial revision of all the chapters, and includes several new sections. From the ground up, this book provides the material you need to master the field of digital audio, with its sophisticated techniques and innovations that have revolutionised both telecommunications and entertainment since it first started to appear.

It starts simply, and builds upon easy concepts in digestible steps towards complexity, dealing along the way with the physics of sound, binary notation and signal processing, and proceeding on to recording, signal error correction, sampling and audio reproduction. It is a repository of basic information about sound and gives a firm grounding in the related mathematics. As an introduction to Digital Audio Tape (DAT) technology, Compact Disk (CD) and DVD, it is second to none, and the source of good historical material as well as brief, lucid technical information.

The earlier editions were famed for excellent diagrams, and this edition won't let you down. Almost any chapter can serve as the launching point for a fascinating journey into new technology presented in such a way that the reader is not daunted by reams of difficult mathematics. The index is very complete and surprisingly helpful, with main discussion topics picked out in bold page numbers. For those wishing to study further there are copious bibliographies to each chapter featuring recent available works. --Wilf Hey
