GUIDE TO THE BEST HI-FI STEREO SYSTEM - AT THE LEAST COST

Recommended Posts

FREE book offer - again:

“GUIDE TO THE BEST HI-FI STEREO SYSTEM - AT THE LEAST COST”

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07J5TVS7Z

Hi,

As promised, this book has been extensively revised and offered for free to facilitate access to the kind individual who has offered his services in ‘polishing’ the final product. As a consequence, this free offer is also open - from midnight to midnight (Pacific Time) on Feb 8th, 2019 - to anyone interested in getting a copy now.

The book is offered in good faith. However, if it isn’t appealing, or if there’s strong disagreement with a point or two (as can always happen in hifi) please simply disregard the book. There’s really no need to publicly disparage (with detrimental consequences) something that has been given away, for free, in good faith and as a gesture of goodwill (not that this has happened, already).

Thanks to everyone!

Cheers  ;-)

[PS

If you use the link and it says it is not available to Amazon customers outside the UK– no problem. Several options discovered by some in the thread. One option is super-simple; just log into Amazon and type the title in the search box

EDIT: It's possible that anyone who had obtained the previous version will not be able to access this new version (with Amazon supplying the old version asserting that you had already 'purchased' it). This has been my experience. If so, it might be better to 'borrow' the new version from someone who successfully acquired it, if possible,.]

It appears that this is NOT a book but some sort of a download. What's a Kindle ? :)

I have e-mailed W A James and he has sent me a copy of the 'revised book'. It is much reduced and five chapters have gone. It has also undergone revision to make it more focused and easier to read.

I like the overall message which is a criticism of the modern ultra-detailed speakers/systems that are in vogue with some helpful advice on speakers/systems that do not suffer this affliction. Overall I agree with this assessment and wonder why there is a vogue for these unnatural systems. The super detailed systems are great for a few hours but eventually, they are wearing. However, where he goes further is naming names, based on his extensive listening. I have to admit he is braver than me in naming the names of the Good, the Bad and the downright ugly. Of course, being from the US there is a bias of naming US gear but it is good to see older style BBC speakers being questioned and Tannoy and Audionote getting a thumbs up. No personal bias there of course. 

Give it a go, it ain't that expensive and might save you a bob or two. Provocative....yes.
