Julian Nathan joined the audio service and manufacturing industry in 1954 and moved into motion picture engineering and production in 1960. He installed and operated recording theaters in Sydney, Australia, and set up similar facilities in Papua New Guinea and Hong Kong. Later he spent several years in cinema installation and service including audio visual theaters and government sound systems, then worked in the hi-fi- and professional sound equipment markets. His particular interest is home theater. He makes his home in New South Wales, Australia.
"A practical and very accessible handbook on basic audio theory and practice, written not only for technicians but also for sales people and amateur enthusiasts who 'want to go into things seriously.'...It's all written and presented in a friendly way, with a bare minimum of maths and a lot of good down-to-earth practical advice. My impression is that it would be an excellent introduction to basic audio theory and practice, for anyone wanting to get into this area." --Electronics Australia
