THE #1 BEST-SELLING BOOK ON DIGITAL AUDIO ENGINEERING
This definitive text provides comprehensive coverage of today’s leading digital audio technologies as well as a thorough survey of fundamentals and theory. Written by well-known audio engineering expert and best-selling author Ken Pohlmann, four previous editions have been valued for their clear explanations and have been widely used as college texts and professional references. The fifth edition of Principles of Digital Audio has been extensively updated and revised to reflect ongoing widespread changes in the audio industry.
Beginning with an in-depth discussion of digital audio recording and reproduction, the text then details perceptual low bit-rate coding, CD and DVD disc formats, digital audio broadcasting, internet and network audio, and DSP.
