Educational materials

As someone who just fairly recently was able to resume my audiophile addiction after a 12+ year hiatus, I find the advancement in formats & technology a bit confusing at times. So, I started re-educating myself by reading Harley's book, the short version, and have subscribed to and read The Absolute Sound & Stereophile. Although both of these have a profound bias towards analog - I lean more towards the digital realm - I do find them to good resources.

My question is, would you folks please make suggestions on additional resources? I wouldbe open to print &/or web-based.

Thanks in advance!

Toole's book 'Sound Reproduction' is a must read. This book nails everything you must know on the speaker/room end. Without Toole's knowledge everything else will not make sense.
Another excellent book is Jim Smith's "Getting Better Sound". It comes with a money back guarantee so you got nothing to loose.

Good luck,
Jim Bailey
Go to, then the link to anthem. Find the article on "a taste of tubes".
I second Dr. Toole's book. You can read some of his papers on the Harman web site: Click on White Papers.

You might want to look at An Introduction to Digital Audio.

You may not care for the tone, but many of The Audio Critic back issues are available online.
Webzines (beyond TAS and Sterophile online):

For computer audio:

Hope this helps
Thank you for your responses. I will certainly check out those resources.
