Get Better Sound

Restocking the magazines on the Stereophile booth, I saw a familiar face on the booth next door. Audio industry veteran Jim Smith was selling (and autographing) copies of his book Get Better Sound, which is, as the name suggests, about how to get better sound from your system.

In his recent review, Art Dudley concluded that "Get Better Sound is the cheapest good tweak you can buy for your system....It also has the potential to be among the best system investments you can make, period, partly for its breadth of subject matter, and partly because it could lead any open-minded reader, the next time he buys some new gear, to a greater understanding of what it is he really wants."

What he said.
