Our customer reviews

This is not a book to seek knowledge of the theory behind audio amplifiers. Rather, it contains the results of that theory, a lot of real world considerations and a number of different circuit schematics (and layouts). If you plan on building an audio amplifier yourself, this is a fantastic place to start.show more
