Default Need Beginner's FAQs Please

I am asking for links to FAQs, please. I have not found any good databases that answer my questions. Hopefully, someone can point me at some FAQs so I don't have to pester the knowledgeable folks in these forums with beginner stuff.

I have an AS in electronics, but all my work experience has been in computers / data communications. I'm tackling a Gainclone project (from ChipAmp.com), with a scratch built tone control based on the LM1036. I want to get this right, and it would be less than pointless to build a system whose best characteristic is amplifying 60Hz hum.

I have oodles of basic questions, like should I use shielded twisted pair for all line level signals, and if so, how do I accomplish proper grounding. Other questions like whether or not I need audiophile caps in the tuning circuitry of the LM1036 (I can only make an educated guess).

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!!!
Ours go to 11 !

Use the search at the bottom of the page and take your time, and I would use shielded twisted pair.
