Introduction to Audio Systems
Any audiophile will tell you that a matched set of separates will easily outperform any off the shelf hi-fi unit but as technology has become cheaper over the years, hi-fi systems now contain the sort of wizardry once reserved for all but the wealthy.
Nowadays it is not beyond the reach of most households to own a multi channel surround sound system with Dolby Digital™ or DTS encoding. But what else might you find in the average UK household? Well, you'll be surprised. What with the advent of PC's, laptops, MP3 players, Home Theatre systems, DAB, XBox 360 and Playstion™3 it is becoming ever more popular to connect these to some sort of amplification.
