Product description


"When a technical book is republished in a second or third edition, you know it's become recognised as a reference work, but when it reaches a seventh edition, I think it's legitimate to suggest that it has become something of a 'bible'! ...If you want just one reference book on audio, this one is hard to beat."

-Hugh Robjohn, Sound On Sound Magazine

"Sound and Recording: Applications and Theory, 7th Edition, is a comprehensive authoritative work, and it belongs on the reference shelf of every conscientious audio professional. I highly recommend it."

 - Alan Hardiman, Professional Sound
