Immaculate original condition, still as new but no dust jacket. Images depict all need to know detail.
This book is intended to supply the missing link between the previous volumes, Loudspeakers and Sound Reproduction, which described in considerable detail the equipment used before and after the process of amplification. It should furnish ideas for the experimenter so that he may obtain the best result from the amplifier and associated circuits, with his available resources. For those who are blessed with the necessary cash, there are several well-known designs for home construction of amplifiers which give superb results, and commercial amplifiers are now available which are a delight to use and hear.
Such readers may well be able to assess and appreciate their equipment all the better after a perusal of this book. Many of us (the writer included) have to think twice before we buy what we want, and if we achieve good results by judicious and economic buying, we are all the more pleased, and value our masterpiece so much more highly. It is hoped, therefore, that the man who “makes one of his own”, who is not content to put in 40K and 0.5 mfd just because it says so in the book but wants to know why he does it, will find most of the answers in the following pages.
No doubt this book will be considered by some to insult their intelligence by explaining a circuit in too great detail in words with too few syllables, whereas others may complain that there are too many technicalities; yet it is felt that a good foundation and appreciation of basic principles is necessary to build the finished article. Professional engineers may boggle at some of our short cuts to arrive at a general conclusion, but we plead that the means justifies the need – that of giving some guidance and pleasure to the many amateurs striving to build or buy that elusive thing, the perfect reproducer, and to obtain there-from the maximum performance.
