Practical and very readable
on 12 September 2009
"Building Valve Amplifiers" is a very useful book to any DIY audio enthusiast looking at scratch building a Valve Amplifier. The book covers constructional issues such as chassis manufacture, wiring and testing/faultfinding. The author Morgan Jones assumes no previous knowledge of any of the subjects covered and because of his easy to read style of writing, the subject matter should be accesable to all readers.
Owning the partner book "Valve Amplifiers" is a must, but this book can stand alone from that volume, as the subject of this is less about the circuit design and more about practical considerations such as component layout, earthing and cooling.
