Blimey, I'll need another mortgage.

I could buy a set of valves for that price. (Er, have done)

Morgan says that he actually has physical copies, so Newnes is apparently shipping.
Newnes uses Elsevier Direct for international distribution. They still show it as unpublished. I did find a UK source when I looked around yesterday but I can't find it now. I will just wait for Amazon.

Morgan emailed me about two years ago asking if he could include some PowerDrive information. I have no idea if it made the cut though.

Paper or Kindle.......I don't want to get my wifes Kindle too close to the workbench due to the probability of it getting broken. On the other hand the paper copy of the third edition started losing pages within a few months. My original 1973 edition RCA tube manual is in better shape.

From what hes told me, yes, Power Drive is in there. I chided him a bit about dismissing AB2 in the 3rd edition and apparently he took me seriously.

Now that you have introduced Morgan to AB2, do you think you can get screen drive into the 5th edition?

I have the third edition and "Building Valve Amplifiers" by Morgan Jones. Are there any other books a newbee like me should read?

Let's hope for better/more binding glue this time around.

Heyraz: "Valve Amplifiers" is where most of the theory is. "Building Valve Amplifiers" is the construction tips and methods sidekick book.
