Principles of Digital Audio, Sixth Edition (Digital Video/Audio) Reviews
First off, this book is in its fifth edition, and Amazon has lumped together reviews of all editions of this book. So the oldest review shown, written in 1998, is speaking of the 3rd edition, and reviews written prior to 2005 are talking about the 4th edition.
This book really deserves to be called 'The Ultimate Digital Audio Bible'. It has anything and everything. From basic DSP to video, it's not limited to audio topics. When I read the reviews, I would not hope to read the book from the start, just use it as a reference to explain specific standard highlights. But this book is very readable. I loved it. If you are a computer eng. major who wants to dwell in DSP in any field, this book is great. I don't agree with the prejudice that the book is not very readable. There are sections that are more difficult, but the author explains things in very good analogies and examples. I must mention that I'm a comp. eng. a few months away from MS, so I may not be doing justice to the average reader. But I would never expect to find myself reading through that 700+ book with pleasure. Don't think, buy it. Then try and conceal this secret gem from others.
Every audio technician should read this book.
Good overview of digital audio fundamentals & practice up to 2011. Covers CD's, DVD's, and BluRay. Also describes CODES, Internet audio, digital broadcasting, and DSP methods. Even has a chapter on Sigma-Delta A/D & D/A conversion and noise shaping. Not real heavy on theory, but a good overview nonetheless.
Ken writes beautifully. I first read his contributions to Stereo and Stereo Review and 20 years later I'm still loving his stuff. He also inspired me to start a business in the AV industry. Ken come visit us in South Africa.
I love all the books, and in this book I have found a lot of interesting information and have learned a lot. I recomend it.
I think its a great first book for anyone wanting to know more technical details about the workings of the CD, digital audio in general, digital interfaces and some DSP.
