It is true that accurately calculating electronic circuits can involve complicated formulas but for the electronic hobbyist it is not necessary to perform at the level of an electrical engineer With some basic knowledge it is possible for the hobbyist to design and build vacuum tube audio amplifiers that perform well This book covers basic electronics related to vacuum tube amplifiers an elementary reference guide for the hobbyist working with vacuum tube amplifier circuits Written in sections that are concise many with examples and illustrations Sections help you read at your own pace convenient to stop after a section skip around sections or refer back to a section For the novice not versed in electronics sections covering electronic and audio basics are included Vacuum tube amplifying circuits are explained in simple terms without complicated math Math is primarily basic math with simple formulas all solvable with a standard calculator and presented with examples Principles of vacuum tube operation includes function of grids effect of tube capacitance tube resistance and heat dissipation Power supply sections cover vacuum tube and solid state rectifier conversion of AC to DC and DC filtering A sample amplifier design is used to explain calculating voltage gain and component values A table of component values for the popular 12AX7 in various operating parameters simplifies amplifier stage design Includes project circuits with parts list and component layouts
