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.

One could easily assume that if someone was motivated enough to build his or her own audio gear, they would be motivated enough to take the first step on their own. It is a “teaching book,” a design reference, not a cookbook of recipies.

The book, however, went into overdrive for the remaining chapters, full of equations, electrical diagrams and charts that were not very well explained for a beginner.

I tried my darndest to provide a simple explanation for every term and concept used and felt I was successful at that task. Rozenblit, a graduate electronics engineer and contributing editor to Glass Audio magazine, is clearly in his element when describing the ins and outs of tube amplification circuits and designs – both modern and antique.

Many instructional books try to be all things to all people and the target audience is only interested in pages of the that they payed begihner.

It was not my intention to write a book about “Mr. I think absolute beginners should start with the bookwork first and then build simple projects such as regenerative receivers with FET’s before moving to tubes and then line powered audio gear.


I now have many books on vaccuum tube electronics and I can’t think of a better way to be introduced to the subject. Skip to main content. There are dozens of excellent books available that teach the absolute basics.

Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. Kiril added it Jul audoi, Learn more about Amazon Giveaway. Box Peterborough, NH Phone: Likewise, there is no reason why the motivated audiophile cannot understand the basics of tube circuitry.

I tried to distill and condense that information into its bare and most useful essentials so it could be grasped by the so called non-professional. Distributed by and available from: I’ll just come out and say it: While Rozenblit may uadio on the on the edge of technological overload for the electronics beginner, his straightforward, no-nonsense style is easy to read, even if the material is not so easily digested.

I did not want my book to have that problem. Given the fairly technical nature of much of the information presented, this “hands on” approach would certainly appear be most helpful in fully understanding this material.
