Default Reading material

Hi all,

Im shortly going to be starting an MPhil research degree on valve microphone preamp design, and am looking for some more reading material.

So far I have,

Both the Morgan Jones books
The tube preamp cookbook - Allen Wright
Small signal circuit design - Douglas Self

Does anyone have an ideas that would help my research?

Thanks in advance

Charlie

I'd also add the RDH4 (Radiotron Designer's Handbook 4th Edition) to the list as a general reference. It should be available on Pete's site.

I assume you are already well up to speed on high quality solid-state circuit design, including noise issues. If not, try Horovitz & Hill. Also see anything written by Bob Pease.

Second that.

If you can find Elmore and Sands "Electronics," it has probably the best overall treatment of noise in tube circuits that I've seen.

For research purpose, I recommend this one,

High-end Valve Amplifiers 2 - ELEKTOR.com | Electronics: Microcontrollers Embedded Audio Digital Analogue Test Measurement

It is a very recent valve amp book..I don't think you can find any other book much closer to modern electronic technologies..

Definitely 'up to speed' but still got a lot of work to do, its going to be a long 3 years, but its very exciting.
