".the book is a companion to the book Valve Amplifiers, 4th edition also by Morgan Jones and published by Newnes/Elsevier. This is a serious design book with details on audio circuit design, equations and related topics. A 4th edition means that the book has been around for a while and is being updated and there is a real market for it.", March 17, 2014


Reviews of previous editions:

"Jam-packed with theory, circuit analysis, and DIY basics, it will walk you through all stages of design so that you can create your own wonders. Jones is an ex-BBC engineer with a cool writing style and you’ll find it a no-pain education". Hi-Fi News and Record Review

"Valve Amplifiers is an extremely well written book, containing a wealth of information that all audio designers and builders will find useful". Glass Audio

Valve Amplifiers is a market leader for one simple reason: in this specialist area it is recognized as the most complete guide to valve and vacuum tube amplifier design, modification, analysis, construction and maintenance. It is truly the all you need to know guide, and enables audio and circuit designers to succeed with their valve amplifier designs and projects.

This book enables readers to understand, create, reconfigure and personalize high-end, audiophile quality amplifiers. Following a step-by-step approach to design, with little maths and lots of know-how, it starts with a brief review of electronic fundamentals relevant to valve amplifiers, simple stages, compound stages, linking stages together, and finally, complete designs.

The new material included in this Fourth Edition ensures this book will stay at the top of any audio designer’s or enthusiast’s reference list.

 What’s new within the chapters:

Chapter 1: Charge amplifiers

Chapter 2: Additional circuits, semiconductor constant current sources expanded

Chapter 3: Entire new section on noise

Chapter 4: Lots of new measurements to explode or explain audio folklore

Chapter 5: Astonishingly quiet, but cheap and simple HT supply

Chapter 6: New power amplifier

Chapter 7: New hybrid balanced RIAA stage, attenuator law faking

VA3's focus was on distortion, but in VA4, focus is pushed towards background noise reduction. If that wasn’t enough, there’s more explanation, more measurements, more references, and plenty of new one-liners, any one of which might save hours of trouble.

* The practical guide to analysis, modification, design, construction and maintenance of valve amplifiers
* The fully up-to-date approach to valve electronics
* Essential reading for audio designers and music and electronics enthusiasts alike

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good valve book 8. Januar 2013
Von Andrew Ryder - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The "ne plus ultra" of tube amp books. Contains all you need and probably more than you were looking for. You can read it to just get the answers you were looking for or you can dive in and "study" the subject.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book on vacuum tubes is as necessary as air to breath. 30. Mai 2013
Von Caleb Weissberg - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This classic is updated and truly one of the most useful vacuum tube engineering books I've ever owned. The math is clearly presented and easy to refer to as needed. The discussions of dynamic range, noise and distortion have just enough depth to be useful during a real design effort. Don't know how I'd previously missed owning such a great book.

Although the author clearly has in-depth knowledge and expertise in the area of valve electronics, the book does not present the material in manner that is accessible to the hobbyist or someone lacking an electronics background. Chapter 1 purports to be an overview of basic principles of electronics, but I have seen some of the same material in other sources presented in a manner that is much more understandable. An example of the language in Chapter 1 : "Like the integrator, practical charge amplifiers require a means of discharging the feedback capacitor to prevent amplifier saturation, and this is commonly achieved by a parallel discharge resistor (see Figure 1.51)." And "Such sources thus look like a Norton source (pure current source in parallel with capacitance) and can be converted into a Thevenin source having a pure voltage source in series with the source capacitance." To some readers, I am sure this makes perfect sense and is basic information, but for others this is a rough read. And this is Chapter 1. I suspect the vast majority of people interested in a book pertaining to valve amplifiers are musicians, stereophiles, and hobbyists who do some basic restoration, maintenance and kit-building and now wish to dig a little deeper into the topic. For them, a book that starts with some practical, applied information and then gradually, layer-by-layer, goes deeper into the topic would be a good fit. This book seems to approach the topic from the other direction, similar to teaching a foreign language by starting with 100 hours of verb conjugation whilst failing to teach basic phrases that would be of immediate use (when I visit a foreign country, knowing whether a verb is regular or irregular comes second to knowing how to order a meal and find a loo). My point of this review is not to bash the author or the book but is instead to provide some much-needed counterweight to all of the glowing reviews and to help potential buyers make an informed purchasing decision.

4.0 von 5 Sternen dense and incomplete 5. Oktober 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I love Morgan Jone's Valve books. He writes in a very clear manner and explains with basic algebra all the material. I do wish he would describe in detail some of the things he mentions in passing. On one page he describes using a CCS as the bias for a push pull class A output stage, then no further mention of it is made. No details of how the terms Anode to Anode Rp of an output transformer is defined or calculated. a Glossary and a list of equivalent European Vs American part numbers would have been nice. But. With all that, and more. This is the best book out for Vacuum tube audio. Buy it, you will learn lots.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finally a book that tells you why things are done that way. 4. Februar 2014

Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a book that tells why things are done in a certain way with just enough theory and very clear explanations.
