Looking for a great book about general audio theory

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi.

I've been interested in the Hi-Fi world for some time now, but it seems there is still a lot I don't understand. I'd like to get your recommendations on a book(s) for a beginner that covers subjects like basic sound theory, frequently used terms, digital audio, analog audio, basic science behind recording.

could check out the website, sample chapter of the Harvard "physics for poets" "Why you Hear What You Hear"

Not to shill my own stuff, but this is exactly what you're looking for:

 

The Audio Expert

Thanks for recommendations everyone.

 

Looks like I'll be starting with "The Audio Expert", based on the table of contents it really looks like what I'm looking for.
