Preface > Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

As with any book of this scope, I did not work alone. I am much indebted to my editor, Simon Hayes, for helping to get this project off the ground and for his guidance in structuring and shaping this book in the "big picture." I am also most grateful for the many contributions made by our pool of technical editors:

  • mp3tech.org's Gabriel Bouvigne, who possesses a nearly encyclopedic knowledge of MPEG's technical arcana and who helped to flesh out the details of this book in numerous ways.

  • Lifelong audiophile Mike Knapp, who can build high-end amplifiers in his sleep and who contributed immeasurably to Hi-Fi issues throughout the book.

  • Bruno Prior, who literally built a house around an extensive room-to-room home MP3 network, and who seems to have used every MP3 tool on the planet extensively. Prior also contributed much on the topic of encoding from analog sources.

  • MP3.com's "High Geek" Sander van Zoest, who offered much behind the scenes information, especially on the broadcasting and streaming side of things, and who turned me on to MP3 products and technologies before they happened.

In addition, I'd like to thank the members of the WinAmp, mp3stereo, SHOUTcast, and icecast mailing lists, as well as the community inhabiting various MP3 USENET groups. The following individuals have also offered assistance: John Hedtke, Malcolm Humes, Michael James, Henry Kingman, Bruce Lash, Marco Nelissen, Peter Urbanec, Rob Voisey, and Franc Zijderveld.

This book is dedicated to my wife, Amy Kubes, who cheerfully put up with the endless stream of music (both good and bad) flowing from my office over the past year, and for her unwavering support during the course of this project.
