I am highly interested on additional books regarded amplifier technologies, also in other languages than English and German. I think, in french, japanese, spain and russian there are also interest books. With today's software (e. g. Finereader) a translate isn't difficult through Googles language tools.

Here interesting books about ground loops (incl. different book read samples)

And if you Solid State guys ever get drawn to 'the dark side' then two very nice people (one being Pete Millett who posts in the Vacuum Tube section of the forum) have provided lots of very useful free books...

Technical books online
www.electronballet.com - /TubeBooks/

thanks for this also interesting books about SMPS (switch mode power supplies) and tubes but this kind of books must actually filed by "Power Supplies" respective "Valve/Tubes", not by "Solid State".
Next time I will start a new thread regarded a overview of printed and online magazines arround the world like MJ, TAA and tube CAD journal, and an additional thread about the articles regarded distortion reduction by audio amplifiers in the JAES

Next month (Jan 2010) was released a new book from Douglas Self, title "Small signal Audio Design"
http://books.pcpro.co.uk/catalog/bro...ubcat=12&cat=B
but therefore the website was closed:
http://www.dself.dsl.pipex.com/ampins/closed.htm

Also a new thread was started:
Best books for solid state design?

Burr Brown had one- "operational amplifiers implementations of theoretical functions" A bigger picture of what goes on than a how to book. National Semi had the "Audio/Radio Handbook" My copy shows 1980 however the RIAA curves inside are wrong.

Hi tiefbassuebertr,

---Therefore the website was closed:---

Department closed.

Only some pages of the website have been closed.

But some other pages have to appear to complement Self's last book "Small signal audio design", one of them is already available :

Discrete design: More on 2-transistor shunt-feedback amplifiers

Both "Small signal audio design" and the the fifth edition of
"The audio power amplifier design handbook" (a lot of entirely new material added to the 4th edition) must be mentionned in any thread like the current one. Even if you do not share the author's philosophy, you'll certainly learn a lot of things reading them.

Among many others, two fascinating circuits discussed in "Small signal" are worth of new dedicated threads :
- the Marcel van de Gevel RIAA preamp.
- the Schlotzaur buffer (published in France about 1985, I "reinvented" with the addition of a current mirrror, some years ago).
