This book was written by a man who find vinyl records obsolete, who hates it.
Same as a drunkard wrote the book against consuming alcohol drinks.

@kamis, if you hate or love something does not say anything
about your knowledge about the topic.

I know the book "Small signal audio design",
and there is already more than enough about vinyl in this book.

I am surprised at how much paper can be wasted by described a simple
opamp circuit with a handfull of resistors and capacitors.
All this optimizing stuff has been discussed to death 40-50 years ago,
and the possible improvements are diminishing in the case of vinyl
with its lousy technical characteristics.
The main reason of the vinyl revival is the discovery by sale people,
that a vinyl sells by 2x the price of a CD.

I suggest to add three chapters about the new CD standard from 1982,
the WAV file format from 1991 and the MP3 standard from 1992.
These are much more promising technical solutions for conserving
audio data

There are millions of old records that are not digital and where the master tapes are broken or missing. The task is to get the maximum quality out of the grooves.

This has to be the silliest post on this thread. Vinyl, like the horse pulled carriage, is indeed obsolete, notwithstanding the so called revival. That does not detract from the quality of this book

There's still a market for Player Piano rolls.
Horseshoeing is a huge business.

Doug,

I got your 'Electronics for Vinyl' as a gift for Christmas. I have found your book a welcome and worthy addition to my library.

I've already read most of it page for page. Thank you for taking the time to write it.

Just because turnover is high does not mean that the underlying technology is not obsolete.
