Incorporate the "tube sound" into your home audio system

Learn how to work with vacuum tubes and construct high-quality audio amplifiers on your workbench with help from this hands-on, do-it-yourself resource. The TAB Guide to Vacuum Tube Audio: Understanding and Building Tube Amps explains tube theory and construction practices for the hobbyist.

Seven ready-to-build projects feature step-by-step instructions, detailed schematics, and layout tips. You'll also find out how to tweak the projects, each based on a classic RCA design, for your own custom-built amps.

Coverage includes:

  • Principles and operational theory behind vacuum tubes
  • Tube nomenclature, applications, and specifications
  • Circuit layout, connections, and physical construction
  • Finding and selecting the right components for the project
  • Power supplies for vacuum tube circuits
  • Preamplifier and power amplifier circuits
  • Performance measurement
  • Safety, maintenance, and troubleshooting techniques
  • Tips on building your own tube-based system―and having fun in the process

This book is intended for hobbyists interested in adding the tube sound to any audio system. (Readers looking for high-performance audiophile books are urged to consider the McGraw-Hill books by Morgan Jones.)
