An excellent intermediate survey of the digital audio landscape. This text covers conversion, signal processing, channel coding and storage as well as current implementations of the technology. Good illustrations are included for visual reinforcement. Pohlmann's breezy writing style guides the reader from basic physics through dense theoretical discussion to practical examples. A freshman college background in physics and mathematics is useful though not essential.

Thoroughly updated 4th edition. As well as definitive and thorough descriptions of the basics of digital audio, DAT, and CD, (and lots, lots, more besides) it now includes new sections on MD, Firewire, USB, and DVD. Useful chapters on perceptual coding and audio for the PC. For good measure, it now includes a good introduction to the issues involved in streaming audio across the Internet. Absolutely essential one-stop solution for musicians, students, and lecturers.

It is a good book, but very heavy to read. On a lot of topics it is easier to find a trustworthy article via google. The book i think covers a lot of topics that a sound engineer need to know about. It is also well written, but sometimes the level of detail is to much and it gets confusing.

In other words, if you just started swimming in the world of digital audio, maybe you are better of reading something "lighter".
