New Update Posted 10/2/2015

After over 50 free downloads and 3 sales, all in 3 days, this new Kindle book is doing well.  Five reviews exist and the average is over 4.5 stars out of five.  If you'd like to learn about how you can easily and affordably make the audio system you already have sound as good as it can, grab a copy and dig in.  It's less than 100 pages including images so it's a quick read but you'll gain much more than it costs you in time and cash.  

Only $2.99 on Amazon or borrow it out of the Kindle Owners' Lending Library free.

If you have been waiting for the print version, it won't be long now until that is ready.  Print book formatting is in progress so the paper edition's launch is imminent.  I'll announce again when it's ready.

My new Kindle book about audio system setup is chock full of details that reward a listener far beyond the effort and cash required to implement them.  It will soon launch on Amazon.  It's about doing things that help achieve the best-sounding music any given Hi-Fi system can play.  I've realized iHi-Fi's niche in the audio business naturally includes focus on system level audio performance tuning.  That's how my recent focus on specialty audio furniture design fits in.

The book launch will happen exclusively on KDP Select when the secret date arrives.  Right now, I'm looking for a few interested souls who would like to receive a free copy of the Kindle version in exchange for an honest review posted on Amazon.  If you email me I'll put you on the distribution list.  Please use the Contact page on this website and mention you want a free copy of the book.  I'll send you a link to an page to get a free copy when the advance distribution begins.  Your review can be as short or as extensive as you prefer.

You don't have to use a Kindle reader.  Amazon has made sure that if you have a device, they have a free app that enables you to read Kindle books.  All free downloads, in case you haven't heard.  I got the Kindle app for iPad.  It works well.

The free copy will be available as part of a promotion I'll be running.  This book will be available exclusively on Amazon as a KDP Select Edition.  When the promotion date is set, I will send you a link and you can download the book FREE for a limited time.

This book presents tried-and true, tested and proven setup methods that many listeners have confirmed are very worthwhile.  Eventually, it will also come out in paperback but the content is the same in Kindle.  The table of contents includes ten sections about focus areas where attention to details, and possibly some investment of time and a little cash, achieve wonders with any audio system that has true Hi-Fi capability.  Without good setup, no audio system will ever make the best music it can. Yet you can do a lot without spending much.  Some tips are free to implement.

A few other books about audio setup are out there but I made sure my focus gives you better value.  For one thing, I don't offer advertising for gear I don't carry on iHi-Fi, so I don’t constantly try to get you excited about spending big money on new audio components.  My purpose is to help you get the best sound possible from whatever system you have.

Also, this book lays out as much detail as possible in one volume rather than splitting audio setup into fragments so you have to buy several books to get all the information you need.  This book doesn't dive deep into scientific theory or heavy jargon and there's no math in it.  It's simply the facts about what works well to get best sound and how to do it.

I'd surely appreciate an honest review, so let me know by email and I send you a copy.  The form is available on the Contact page HERE.

This is a limited offer.  It will expire when my window closes for offering the book FREE on Amazon.  If you've been thinking you'd like better sound from your system, don't dawdle.  It only takes one email.

Thanks in advance for helping and I hope you enjoy the book.
