The Benefits of Building an Audio Book Library

The benefits of building an audiobook collection are quite similar to those of building a collection for printed books. A collection, as defined by Wikipedia, is “an assortment of information, sources, resources, and services: it is organized for use and maintained by a public body, an institution, or a private individual.” For the most part, we will be discussing the advantages of collecting audiobooks as a private individual. Books have been created and produced in spoken word format for a variety of subjects, and as a result, the mix of audiobooks varies for everyone. But why have a collection at all?

The primary advantage of having an audiobook collection is easy access to the information you value the most. Whether it’s a tribute to a favorite author or a business reference collection to refresh your knowledge on what makes a great business, your audiobook collection consists of books that you have enjoyed and cherished enough to know that you’ll either need them again or want the pleasure of listening to them again.

This guide aims to help those who need assistance with this process. While it’s not the most efficient way to create podcast media, people should use what they’re comfortable with.

Equipment/Hardware Needed:

  1. Standard Audio Cassette Player: A quality Walkman is highly recommended, as it has the most suitable output port integrated. It’s not advisable to use your home stereo cassette deck, as it might have incompatible RCA outs or a 1/4″ jack if you’re lucky.
  2. A 1/8″ to 1/8″ Mini Plug connector: This cable has two small plug connectors, one on each end. You can purchase these cables at most electronics stores. If you must use your home stereo deck with a 1/4″ jack, you can likely find a 1/4″ to 1/8″ adapter along with the cable.

Home Theater Audio Systems

The new LED TV is in place, along with the Blu-ray player. It’s time to insert that first movie and relax with your home theater. The picture is fantastic – you can see every detail on the screen. However, that high-speed chase sounds more like dune buggies than roaring engines. What’s the issue?

Take a closer look at the TV. The new LED TVs are incredibly thin, with the slimmer models being more appealing to many people. They are less obtrusive and fit perfectly on or against the wall. But when you slide in that movie you’ve been waiting to watch, could the TV be defective? Most likely not. Considering the slim design, the sound system has to be incorporated somehow, but where?
