MJ does cover single-ended, but not to the same depth as a True Believer would. I wouldn't be without the Third Edition if I could help it, but a DHT aficionado will not get all the guidance he needs. I'm not hugely familiar with the DHT-SE specialist stuff, but if I were to research a DHT design and didn't feel up to learning from the primary literature, I'd probably start with the reprint set from Vacuum Tube Valley. I think it's on CD these days.

Default "Simple Jazz"

I suppose this is the "Simple jazz" that Morgan refered to so derisively when he was talking about SE design shortcomings.

I think that he meant "simple" in the sense that the recordings are not challenging to the equipment in the way say, that a full symphony orchestra is.

See also his elaborate piece about the Scrapbox Challenge amplifier in the third edition.

My copy is not nearly as tattered as the copy you show, but it impressed him enough to mention its state

That's OK- we've seen Morgan pretty tattered himself.

Default Morgan & company...

I consider it an honor for Mr. Jones...OK, OK, Morgan to comment on my well used book.
I should have known he would be perusing this forum....keeping eye-on-the-pulse-of...
Guess I should get the third edition huh? More info is allways a good thing.
On the simple jazz thing...I like what you might call a low duty cycle music, alot of music nowadays is really...for lack of better word 'busy'. Note: I'm right now listening to Iron Butterfly 'In a Gadda da Vida'.
Perhaps the best word is compressed..but we know what compression is technically.
Isolation of instruments might be closer. Note: The synthesized doppler effect is still impressive on Iron...
Listening to music now ..bye.
