When you start going into the upper echelons of home audio equipment, one thing is immediately evident and that's just how beautiful and unique the designs are in the high-end home audio. Some of it is straight forward and functional while others could easily be considered pieces of art. Hi-Fi is a new book from Phaidon that showcases many of these noteworthy pieces that is sure to be a great read for audiophiles and design fans alike.  

"At a time when sales of vinyl records have hit a 25-year high, and analog technologies are providing the kind of extraordinary audio experiences that our increasingly digital world has started to remove, Hi-Fi is essential reading. This unique book explores just how, when, and why the world fell in love with the look, feel, and sound of top-of-the-line audio equipment. Hi-Fi traces this fascinating evolution from the 1950s to today (and tomorrow), taking readers right up to the current renaissance of all things analog and the emergence of cutting-edge designs for die-hard audiophiles."
