Ideal for hobbyists interested in learning about and building vacuum tube audio amplifiers
A hands-on guide to vacuum tube audio amplifier technology and do-it-yourself projects.
The TAB Guide to Vacuum Tube Audio: Understanding and Building Tube Amps is ideal for hobbyists interested in building high-end audio amplifiers. The book is composed of two principal elements: the theory and operation of vacuum tubes and audio amplifier circuits, and practical projects for the experienced experimenter.
The author covers the theory of tubes and amplifier circuit design from a classical perspective, drawing from time-proven principles and techniques. At the same time, this classical approach to amplifier design reflects and incorporates new technologies that preserve the many sonic benefits of the "tube sound." The projects included give you the chance to construct high-end audio amplifiers and related equipment at a variety of levels of sophistication, power output, and construction preferences.
