This is a pretty accessible way to find out all you need to know when thinking about buying and installing AV and Home Theatre equipment. In a rapidly changing environment, a key attraction is that it is updated annually so it is more or less up to date with recent developmemnts. As a UK resident I found the discussion of TV signal delivery and regulation was US centric but this was a minor inconvenience and everything else was UK applicable.

I find good books on this subject hard to find at a reasonable price that aren't too hard for a newbie to understand. This one fits the bill nicely.

An informative book packed with information. However, it is American! I am a big fan of American technical publications, almost all are universally well written, but, a considerable amount of the content in this book does not travel well. The GB technical standards are different or do not apply. GB connectors have quite different names and much of the equipment used in the examples is not released in this country or uses different branding.
That said, the principles do apply and I have learned a lot. The large number of Sound Standards are explained very well; mind numbing! It is very up to to date.

I bought three books simultaneously-- ALL turned out to be American! I must be more thorough in my research or, perhaps Amazon could emphasise the origin for those books where it may be important!!!

Este libro está muy enfocado tanto al usuario y al profesional.
Está muy actualizado y es muy bueno como lectura introductoria a este mundo.
