Primers dealing with high fidelity are inclined to concentrate upon the equipment thatmakes up a home music system. For this reason, they are chiefly occupied with describing thefunctions, features, construction, and operation of each element of such a system. However, thisis only one approach to explaining high fidelity. The fact remains that equipment is but a meansto an end. An amplifier, for example, is not desired for itself, like a diamond. We are interested inwhat an amplifier does for us and how well it does it. Quality of performance is the basis for distinguishing between high-fidelity and other types of sound reproduction. A collection of audiocomponents, separately or together labeled “high fidelity”, is not what we really mean by theterm. Our true interest is in the quality of reproduced sound that these components make possible.Accordingly, only one chapter is devoted to the description of the components of a high-fidelity system. In the main, this book is concerned with spelling out the attributes of highfidelity performance—that which distinguishes a high-fidelity system from a garden-varietyradio-phonograph—and with clarifying certain major problems that come up in striving for the best possible reproduction of sound.
