About the author:
The author is neither a manufacturer nor a retailer of Hi-Fi products. An electrical engineer by profession, the author brings a lifelong passion in music and its satisfactory reproduction to bear upon the most basic of questions. Is Hi-Fi for you? This fundamental question has never been answered. Until now. The author's considerable love of music, and experience of using high-fidelity systems, is marshalled to this end. Satisfactory sound reproduction of your favourite music at low cost is easier than you think; high-fidelity sound reproduction while retaining good value is a lot harder than it might appear.
