5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive sound reinforcement overview 30 Sep 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent overview of the wide range of sound reinforcement concepts and technology. Everything is explained with clear language and diagrams that are accessible to non-specialists. Yet, the material is covered in impressive depth.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn more about this fascinating subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starting point for learning more.... 20 Dec 2006
By Jon ssh
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Although the photos are a bit dated the info is well written and relevant. Stark has a good casual style and doesn't bog you down in too much science without good reason! I still use it for reference regularly. A good buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing 23 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The DVD is fantastic, highly informative. Unfortunately the book is written in a very inaccessible style, like if you don't already know what the author is talking about then you'll come away scratching your head. It would seem the author as forgotten who he is writing for, unlike the DVD which is crystal clear and worth the price alone!

3.0 out of 5 stars Complete, but.... 5 Aug 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is complete, but the illustrations are rather hokey. Some of the sections get bogged down in unnecessary detail, and other leave stuff out. This is obviously something that was written a while ago, and partially updated without going through the trouble of making the illustrations better.
At the same time I bought this book, I also bought The Live Sound Manual: Getting Great Sound at Every Gig but Ben Duncan, #0879306998. This was a much more readable book, although lacking in illustrations, and geared slightly more to the professional. The only thing in Live Sound Reinforcement that wasn't in The Live Sound manual that I found useful was the one page on 'ringing out the room' to address feedback before it happens.
Both books gave good step-by-step instructions for setup and good explanations of theory, but the latter just did a better job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for The Amature or Professional 10 April 2000
By Jordan Danielson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was well thought out and is explained in very clear terms. This book gives an overview of all of the equipment involved in a sound system, everything from a mic cord to a compressor to a cross over. This is a very helpful book to have lying around to look back at and jog your memory of what this or that does. I highly reccomend this book to anyone and everyone in the Live Sound profession.

5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all 23 Jun 2001
By Stephen Haas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am not a very technical oriented person but this books talks to you in plain english not "techie" like most books do. It also doen't assume you know everything so it starts off at the beginnig basics of sound and it builds from there to more complex ideas and concepts. If you have never run live sound or run sound at chuch or for a band this is the book for you. You will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basics, but not a lot more. 10 Mar 2006
By David Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Well, if you are just starting out with sound, or need to fill in gaps in knowledge about sound reinforcement hardware or audio principles, this book is very plain english and explains everything in an understandable manner without being overly technical (not much math!). It covers all the topics one should be familiar with, speakers, amps, frequencies, microphones etc. and what they do. The discussion of practical techniques was rather slim, although a book to cover even a decent quantity of scenarios would be huge and expensive, and people may not want to part with knowledge for which they receive fat paychecks! As a musician and amateur soundperson for the school where I work, I was familiar with most of what was written and only found a few new ideas for doing sound reinforcement. A great book for anyone getting started.
