Learn to exploit low-cost and on hand components to acquire state of the art functionality in all of the very important parameters of noise, distortion, crosstalk etc. With plentiful insurance of preamplifiers and mixers and a brand new bankruptcy on headphone amplifiers, this sensible guide presents an in depth repertoire of circuits that may be prepare to make nearly any form of audio system.


A source packed choked with useful details, with nearly each web page revealing nuggets of specialised wisdom now not chanced on in other places. crucial issues of concept that undergo on functional functionality are lucidly and punctiliously defined, with the maths stored to a relative minimal. Douglas' historical past in layout for manufacture guarantees he retains a cautious eye at the expense of items. encompasses a bankruptcy on power-supplies, packed with sensible how one can hold either the ripple and the fee down, displaying the way to strength everything.


Douglas wears his studying calmly, and this e-book good points the enticing prose sort universal to readers of his different books. you'll examine why mercury cables are usually not a good suggestion, the pitfalls of plating gold on copper, and what costs from big name Trek need to do with PCB design.


Learn how to:




  • make amplifiers with it sounds as if impossibly low noise



  • design discrete circuitry that may deal with huge, immense signs with vanishingly low distortion



  • use humble low-gain transistors to make an amplifier with an enter impedance of greater than 50 Megohms



  • transform the functionality of low-cost-opamps, how you can make filters with very low noise and distortion



  • make enormously exact quantity controls



  • make a big number of audio equalisers



  • make magnetic cartridge preamplifiers that experience noise so low it really is constrained through simple physics



  • sum, change, clip, compress, and direction audio signals



The moment variation is accelerated all through (with further info on new ADCs and DACs, microcontrollers, extra assurance of discrete op amp layout, and plenty of different topics), and contains a thoroughly new bankruptcy on headphone amplifiers.
