This would be a reference for those who have questions beyond the scope of the other two recording studio books reviewed in this article, particularly where professional-style (non-PC) recording studios are concerned. Tom McCartney, owner of T.M. Electronics in Toronto, Canada, provides information on basic electronics, tools, and equipment, with the latter portion of the book covering cleaning and repair of equipment, soldering, and speakers.
