While there have been some interesting commentaries that have appeared, the first comprehensive review has been posted in Positive Feedback Online – Issue 59. Rather than quoting it here, for those who might be interested in reading reviewer Jeff Day’s in-depth comments on the DVDs, please go to the actual review: http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue59/better_sound.htm
The only significant area where we disagree with Jeff is the price. He quotes it at $39.70, the regular price. However Quarter Note Press has it promotionally priced at just US $29.50 right now!
The first full review to appear was at ComputerAudiophile.com, the leading source for info about the fastest growing new segment in audio – Computer Audio.

The Bottom Line...
As a convenience, we’ve excerpted a small portion of each review here. Additionally, you can click on the individual reviewers’ names as a link to go to that specific review.
“Get Better Sound is the cheapest good tweak you can buy for your system. True—and I'm not bashful about saying it. It also has the potential to be among the best system investments you can make, period…”
Art Dudley, Stereophile
“I don't think there's been something exactly like this in our industry before. Not many would have the necessary experience. Fewer of those would have the writing skills to present trickier concepts simply. … In short, it's the proverbial slam dunk.”
Srajan Ebaen, 6moons.com
"The ‘I know better brigade’ – the people who would never dream of owning this book because ‘it will teach them nothing new’ – sadly they are also the people who could most benefit from Get Better Sound. … It’s either the best book on audio installation around, or it’s the OCD grooming manual. I think it’s the former."
Alan Sircom, Hi-Fi+ (UK sister publication to The Absolute Sound)
"I highly recommend Get Better Sound by Jim Smith, and I think it should be in everyone's audio library. If you'll take the time to work through Jim's tips and implement them in your Hi-Fi system you'll be rewarded with a transformed system. Don't think about it, just do it. You'll be glad you did."
Jeff Day, Positive Feedback Online
“…this book is one of the best "tweaks" you can apply to your HiFi system!”
Lucio Cadeddu, TNT Audio
“There are very few tips in this book that require even a modicum of technical knowledge or monetary investment, which makes Get Better Sound by far the most valuable $45 tweak on the market.
I receive so many emails from readers who ask me about which component to upgrade, or where they should put their money in order to yield the most noticeable improvements. From now on, my answer will be Get Better Sound…”
Marc Phillips, TONEAudio
“While I have recommended numerous pieces of gear as good values, even great ones, I have never believed in a "Best Buy" until now. No matter what your system consists of, or what type of music you enjoy, spend the $44.50 for Get Better Sound. For the price of a few CDs, you can improve the sound of every CD in your collection - and that is what I call a best buy.”

Note from Jim Smith –
Please read or view the tips in the set-up manual or DVD that you purchase, and be sure to put some of the tips into action. If you don’t, then you’re wasting your money. Wasting money is the opposite result of why I wrote the book and produced the DVDs…
