Understanding the principles of sound production is necessary to achieve the goals of sound reproduction in spaces ranging from recording control rooms and home listening rooms to large cinemas.
This revision brings new science-based perspectives on the performance of loudspeakers, room acoustics, measurements and repoduction, all of which need to be appropriately used to ensure the accurate delivery of music and movie sound tracks from creators to listeners. The robust website www.
