Perhaps a general thing to say is that there is little point in people reading an intermediate book too soon. Some people read something like Doug Self or Morgan Jones, then pop up here with lots of question and it quickly becomes clear that while they may have learnt lots of words they have little real understanding so our replies don't actually help them.

How long does it take for someone to gain reasonable competence in electronics? Starting from scratch (e.g. some science and maths, but no electronics) I would say 2-3 years of intensive study or 5-10 years of spare time hobby. To be an expert you can multiply these times by 2 or 3.

Had to dig this one from the grave. I do hold an EE degree, but whatever I learned 20 odd years ago has long since left along with my Commodore 64. I find myself stuffing boards without really know wtf I'm doing. So in light of that, I'm going to take a few, "refreshers," in my case more of a, relearners classes, and do some reading as well.



This long forgotten thread is part of that task. Since nothing has been added in years, perhaps there are some new books out there, that you have read and should be added here?


Anyway, time to get the Ginko out and see if I can force any more into this old noodle of mine.

The old books are the best books. -Grumpy old man

I just bought near a dozen books, the one I like best is 1948, the disappointment was the 3rd edition of a book I loved in 1st edition. (Newer/Bigger is NOT always better.)

For medium and leading-edge audio amplifiers, Doug Self and Bob Cordell have recent editions which are excellent for the readers they target. Richard Kuehnel is known for guitar amplifiers but two recent books are more general (Fundamentals of Guitar Amplifier System Design, and Circuit Simulation - Model vacuum tube guitar amplifiers using SPICE!) The SPICE book is general (not just tubes) and about the 2nd best LTspice tutorial I've seen (the best is in this forum).

The current edition of The Art of Electronics will fix you right up.

Hi all,

I would suggest "Audio Power Amplifiers" by Arto Kolinummi. It describes and lists many different approaches to inherently linear amplifiers (without GNFB) including schematics and distortion levels. I wouldn't call it a stand-alone book but consider it an addition to e.g. Self & Cordell's books.

Cheers,

Jesper
