Small Sound Audio Design - This is a detailed book on how to design and build high-end circuitry for audio use. Everything from pre-amps to amplifiers is covered. You'll get a thorough education in how to deal with noise, distortion, crosstalk and other issues that complicate such designs.
In a clear, technical and informative fashion, Douglas walks you through electrical theory as well as practical ways of dealing with power supplies, cost factors and other aspects of audio design. This is not only a book for pros but a guide for engineers, technicians and even hobbyists.
About the Author: Douglas Self, Senior designer of high-end audio amplifiers and contributor to Electronics World magazine.
