Description

Reviews of previous editions:

"Jam-packed with theory, circuit analysis, and DIY basics, it will walk you through all stages of design so that you can create your own wonders. Jones is an ex-BBC engineer with a cool writing style and you’ll find it a no-pain education". Hi-Fi News and Record Review

"Valve Amplifiers is an extremely well written book, containing a wealth of information that all audio designers and builders will find useful". Glass Audio

Valve Amplifiers is a market leader for one simple reason: in this specialist area it is recognized as the most complete guide to valve and vacuum tube amplifier design, modification, analysis, construction and maintenance. It is truly the all you need to know guide, and enables audio and circuit designers to succeed with their valve amplifier designs and projects.

This book enables readers to understand, create, reconfigure and personalize high-end, audiophile quality amplifiers. Following a step-by-step approach to design, with little maths and lots of know-how, it starts with a brief review of electronic fundamentals relevant to valve amplifiers, simple stages, compound stages, linking stages together, and finally, complete designs.

The new material included in this Fourth Edition ensures this book will stay at the top of any audio designer’s or enthusiast’s reference list.

 What’s new within the chapters:

Chapter 1: Charge amplifiers

Chapter 2: Additional circuits, semiconductor constant current sources expanded

Chapter 3: Entire new section on noise

Chapter 4: Lots of new measurements to explode or explain audio folklore

Chapter 5: Astonishingly quiet, but cheap and simple HT supply

Chapter 6: New power amplifier

Chapter 7: New hybrid balanced RIAA stage, attenuator law faking

VA3's focus was on distortion, but in VA4, focus is pushed towards background noise reduction. If that wasn’t enough, there’s more explanation, more measurements, more references, and plenty of new one-liners, any one of which might save hours of trouble.

Quotes and reviews

"…the book is a companion to the book Valve Amplifiers, 4th edition also by Morgan Jones and published by Newnes/Elsevier.  This is a serious design book with details on audio circuit design, equations and related topics.  A 4th edition means that the book has been around for a while and is being updated and there is a real market for it."--ElectronicDesign.com, March 17, 2014
