Default book for beginner in audio design

Hi everybody!

i'm new on this forum.
I'm searching a good book to start up.
I'm an electronic engineer but i'm totally new in audio design's field.

i've bought the following books:



Title: Valve and Transistor Audio Amplifiers
Author(s): John Hood

Audio Power Amplifier Design Handbook
Edition: 4Rev ed
Author(s): Douglas Self

Valve Amplifiers
Edition: 3Rev ed
Author(s): Morgan Jones




i still have to receive the first one (valve and transistor)...first of all ...and so....... i've started to read the douglas self's book.
It's too advanced for me, because it talks of concept without a lot of explanation (not at all).
Furthermore, the authour is a fan in feedback and class b amp, and i don't (maybe i'm wrong!).

Anyway, i would look for a very book for beginners in audio developing.
I know there is the art of linear electronic, but the new version won't be out for other time .

I hope to receive some good advice from all of you guys.

Best regards,
Stefano.

Here is a good book for newbies interested in tube design. The introductory chapters should be quite useful:

Beginner's Guide To Tube Audio Design by Bruce Rosenblit

Thanks!

Do you might know a similar book but for transistor design?
For tube amp i got building tube by morgan (i don't know if you know it!)
I will check this book out and see if it can help me in the tube design.


Best Regards,
Stefano.

I know it well, I have both the latest and earliest editions as well as some of his other books.

I would look around the audioexpress (old colony bookstore) as there are plenty of good books to chose from there.

You are probably familiar with Costruire Hifi, una bella rivista sul sujeto di autocostruire apparechio di alta fedelta..(a valvole e transistorizato..) LOL I used to read several Italian mags when I lived in Milano, more years ago than I want to recount. I seem to recall Costruire Hifi was new then, but it was long agooooo... Sorry for my bad italiano..

Really?
you lived on Milano? for how long?
It's nice...not milano...the fact that you lived here!
Anyway your italian is not bad at all!!
I'm maybe gonna live in the US.
My wife is from WI.

In the reality i've never read "costruire hi-fi", and i don't know if they still publish it.
But i heard it's a usefull magazine, i think i'm gonna check it.

I'll lok around udioexpress but i saw not many titels avalaible for the transistor design as beginner.

Anyways i'm going to check out better.

Thanks.


Best regards,
Stefano.


P.S. i'll send you an email because i'm curios about your staying here in italia .

Lived in Milano for just 3 yrs in the early 1970's as a teen-ager. One of the best places on earth to grow up imo.. Unfortunately the environment in the winter anway was not too healthy.. Only place I have ever seen black snow..

Friendly, cosmopolitan, some of the best food anywhere, lots of things to do always.. Kid friendly.. Awesome metro and public transportation. I could go anywhere, anytime on my own, too young to drive at the time. My first taste of freedom, out from under the parental shadow as it were.

Lots of hobby stores.. (Electronics, trains, planes.. you name it)


afaik Costruire Hifi is still published and is quite highly regarded in Italy for the quality of its construction projects.

Thanks for your kind words, your English is far better than my Italiano...

Ciao amigo, alla prossimo tempo..
