The spring stores potential energy like a capacitor, and a mass resists change in velocity like a inductor resists change in current. There is a whole research area dedicated to these analogies, called Bond Graph theory. See here: http://www.bondgraphs.com/about.html

Secondly, you might want to download the Notes on DIY audio PDF file from: ftp://sylvest.dyndns.dk/ (there's only one to choose). I have an op-amp description in there, too. As for your first project, I would not recommend tubes. The circuits involve higher voltages, and if you're not experienced, I wouldn't go down that route (not being a tube dude myself, only judging by schematics I've seen). For transistor (solid state) amplifiers, you will only need transformers for the power-supply, and don't need to think too much about impedence matching in the engineeering manner. In the power supply unit (PSU), the transfomer converts the voltage from the wall outlet (often 110 or 230V depending on country) to a voltage that is lower and more convenient to work with. Also, a transformer (except autotransformers (I think you call them that) gives insulation from the mains potential. Finally, for this post, DIY is about safety margins in a design, including the PSU. Jennice __________________ I get paid to break stuff. My g/f gets paid to play with children. Life is good.
