Tubes and Circuits, is the most comprehensive and up to date text on vacuum tube audio currently available. Join Transcendent Sound's Bruce Rozenblit as he takes the reader on a journey from the basics up through advanced designs. Vacuum tube operation is completely explained from the chemistry of tubes through the electric fields that control them, how they work and how they fail. Essentials of DC and AC circuits are covered as well as some of the most useful circuits in tube audio. Single-ended and push-pull transformer output stage theory is also presented.
Theory becomes practical with two advanced, commercially produced high-end OTL audio amplifiers the reader can build. All design equations and procedures are shown. Schematics, parts lists and photos are provided to assist the reader with construction.
As a bonus, three tube tester projects are included. Readers can now construct their own modern tube testing equipment. Guitar amp users will find the tester projects especially useful.
Join us on a journey and experience the joys of tube audio by building state of the art equipment at very low cost. Understand how tubes work and make them the center of your musical enjoyment for many decades to come.
