Editorial Reviews

Praise for previous edition: "After revolutionizing theatrical film surround sound and promoting among other things the use of single common subwoofers in home theatre surround systems, he went on to design and set up some of the top multi-channel studios of today. His book lays out all the types of multichannel sounds, from its roots in film to its new uses in DVD video and audio and DTV broadcast." - Audiophile Audition "His book lays out all the types of multichannel sound, from its roots in film to its new uses in DVD video and audio and DTV broadcast. It would be a valuable reference for anyone involved in surround sound production in any form and for home theatre dealers and installers as well." - Audiophile Audition "Apart from the nuts and bolts, enough theory and debate is provided to keep any practitioner or sound student happy...Holman has a rare gift for simple explanation of complex concepts. I have read many sound textbooks but this volume has clarified things I never fully grasped before. 5.1 Surround Sound should be the first port of call if you are new to the subject and will provide a good source of reference for anyone already involved." - Studio Sound
