About the Author:

Scott Hunter Stark has been involved in professional audio since the late 1970s. He started out designing custom loudspeaker systems and operating systems for live performances at a time when then-existing commercial systems could not live up to the demands of increasingly larger audiences with increasingly discerning ears. In the 1980s and 90s he was active in providing audio, staging and lighting services to a wide variety of performance events in clubs, theaters, outdoor events and more recently houses of worship in the eastern United States. Throughout his career Stark found a repeated need for presenting plain-English explanations of how sound systems worked, particularly for aspiring engineers struggling with important concepts of physics and sound properties. He translated his years of working experience and knowledge into print with the first edition of Live Sound Reinforcement, later released in 1996 by MixBooks. After years of working in the sound system and engineering business, Stark attended law school and worked with several Internet ventures. Today he is a sound system consultant in the Washington, DC area where he currently resides.
