Publisher Comments:

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.

The TAB Guide to Vacuum Tube AudioProvides a straightforward tutorial on vacuum tube principles and audio circuit designReviews the tradeoffs that engineers must make in designing an audio amplifier and helps you tailor particular circuits to meet your personal objectivesFeatures a suite of projects for the hobbyist, including preamplifiers and power amplifiers, using a variety of construction approachesIncludes full details for all projects--drawings, photographs, and parts listsProvides a practical understanding of the principles of vacuum tube operationContains the latest, most up-to-date methods for optimizing vacuum tube audio performance

Book News Annotation:

The vice president for standards development at the ATSC introduces the principles of vacuum tube operation, describes the different types of vacuum tubes, and explains the tradeoffs engineers must make when designing vacuum tube circuits and audio systems. Four electronic projects borrow a basic circuit design from the RCA receiving tube manual to construct a power supply, audio preamplifier, 15 W audio power amplifier, and 30 W power amplifier.

Synopsis:

Incorporate the tube sound into your home audio system

Learn how to work with vacuum tubes and construct high-quality audio amplifiers on your workbench with help from this hands-on, do-it-yourself resource. The TAB Guide to Vacuum Tube Audio: Understanding and Building Tube Amps explains tube theory and construction practices for the hobbyist.

Seven ready-to-build projects feature step-by-step instructions, detailed schematics, and layout tips. You'll also find out how to tweak the projects, each based on a classic RCA design, for your own custom-built amps.

Coverage includes: Principles and operational theory behind vacuum tubes Tube nomenclature, applications, and specifications Circuit layout, connections, and physical construction Finding and selecting the right components for the project Power supplies for vacuum tube circuits Preamplifier and power amplifier circuits Performance measurement Safety, maintenance, and troubleshooting techniques Tips on building your own tube-based system--and having fun in the process

This book is intended for hobbyists interested in adding the tube sound to any audio system. (Readers looking for high-performance audiophile books are urged to consider the McGraw-Hill books by Morgan Jones.)
