Eric,

I was where you are about a year or so ago -- the books by Morgan, Rosenblitz, and Wright are the 3 i found most useful.

And there is no substitute for getting a cheap amp and figuring out how it is wired together. i found that a good amp to start with is an old console amp -- these can be had cheap and if you let the smoke out, it's not going to set you back too much.

And there is a TON of info on the web.

No matter what books you get on design etc, 2 books that are a must for reference are the RCA Recieving Tube Manuel and General Electric's Essential Characteristics. All the info on the tubes you will be using. You will use them for as long as you do this.
