You plug this thing here into that thing there, and music comes out. How hard can it be? Well, itís not hard, until you canít get a loud enough signal, or something distorts, or thereís hiss or hum... then that simple act of plugging things in and hooking them up becomes an arcane art. In this issue, Mike Rivers takes a hard look at cabling and signal levels, guiding you through the process of moving audio down the line with maximum quality.
