This unique book is dedicated to what has been known since the 70s as the High End Audio industry (and, first and foremost, to the equipment that is at the frontline of humanity's pursuit of sonic Utopia) as well as to the dramatic story of the search for High End: the glamour and the misery, the gains and the losses, the highs and the lows.

Here is a story about us, of how and why we listen, what we strive for and what we are as listening and, more importantly, hearing beings. StereoPravda brings us back to the roots. Whatever the author may be up to while designing and building his own High End Audio equipment, earning a dedicated chapter in BBC DJ John Peel's autobiography, taking an ocean cruise with some of the greatest recording engineers and producers of all time, Alan Parsons included, or, for example, producing Marc Almond's "Russian" album - is always marked with a vibrant immediacy, a sense of humor and a genuine whole-hearted love for music and truly the best possible ways to technically allow it to enrich your soul and mind.

In terms of further sonic improvements in the sound of his or her own audio systems an attentive reader can get from reflecting on StereoPravda, it would not be an over exaggeration to claim that the price/performance ratio of this book, if you would treat it as an audio component, provides the biggest bang for the buck in the whole current High End Audio industry.
