If you’re a serious music lover, you probably want the music you love to sound as great as possible. If you’re a true audiophile, this can mean spending thousands of dollars on stereo equipment that trades the compressed sound of modern digital devices for the rich, full, and warm sound of an analog hi-fi system.
If you’re trying to refine the perfect sound then you’ll be drawn to the interesting content and incredible design of Hi-Fi by Gideon Schwartz. From debating the advantages of digital audio files to the glory of a clean vinyl record, this 272-page hardback book features 300 illustrations that help trace the history of top-of-the-line audio equipment from the 1950s to now. This book even takes readers into the future with a glimpse of the stereo systems of tomorrow. Come along with Hi-Fi author, former attorney, and Audioarts founder as he searches for what he calls “musical truth.” The Phaidon Publishing work is set for release on October 30, 2019 and is available for pre-order now.
