About

A beyond-cool look at the world of high-end audio design for passionate collectors, obsessive audiophiles, and design fans At a time when sales of vinyl records have hit a 25-year high, and analog technologies are providing the kind of extraordinary audio experiences that our increasingly digital world has started to remove, Hi-Fi is essential reading. This unique book explores just how, when, and why the world fell in love with the look, feel, and sound of top-of-the-line audio equipment. Hi-Fi traces this fascinating evolution from the 1950s to today (and tomorrow), taking readers right up to the current Renaissance of all things analog and the emergence of cutting-edge designs for die-hard audiophiles.

About the Maker

Phaidon

PHAIDON: HOME OF THE VISUAL ARTS Phaidon Press, founded in Vienna in 1923 is the premier global publisher of the creative arts. We work with the world's most influential authors to produce innovative books on art, photography, design, architecture, fashion, food, travel, and illustrated books for children that represent the very best in design, quality, and taste. Phaidon's beautiful illustrated books are treasured worldwide for their outstanding content and award-winning production. In October 2012, Phaidon came under new ownership and its new senior management team began the task of growing the company for the long term as the world's leading publisher of books in the visual arts, food, and children's markets. Publishing successes in subsequent years expanded the growing art program to include books made in collaboration with the global superstar Rihanna, NIKE, photographer Annie Leibovitz, fashion designer Sir Paul Smith, the streetwear brand Supreme, and Cecily Brown, one of many cutting-edge artists in the company's iconic Contemporary Artists Series. More recently, Phaidon has successfully added interior design to its core publishing categories. Phaidon now operates a global sales and distribution network, selling in over 100 countries and publishing books in English, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German, and with an increasing number of publishing partners in further languages.
