Publisher Comments:

If you have been intrigued by the rebirth of vacuum tubes as a way of reproducing music but are totally mystified about vacuum tubes and what they do, then Bruce Rozenblit wrote this book for you. This book is the best beginner's guide available on what vacuum tubes do and how to use them. Bruce shows you how to design the building blocks which turn tubes, resistors, capicitors, transformers, and other hardware into amplifiers which make beautiful music reproduction possible.

On the other hand, if you've been using tubes for years, can read a schematic, and have assembled several amplifiers or preamplifiers, but never quite understood just what was going on in all that nice circuitry, then Bruce's book can unveil all the mysteries of amplification which you have wondered about all this time.

Author Rozenblit starts with a simple, clear explanation of what a vacuum tube is, and how it works. In simple language with no unexplined jargon, he steps through the basic types of tubes, what tube characstics mean, how to read those funny charts, and understand specifications.

Synopsis:

The best beginner's guide on vacuum tube audio available! Rozenblit explains what vacuum tubes do and how to use them. This book gives you the complete picture of tube audio design. Not just for beginners, you'll also find chapters on stabilization and testing, how to work effectively as a designer and descriptions of 13 famous and classic amps and preamps. A hands-on guide to construction techniques, tools and choosing components and tubes are also included.
