What should I look for in an audio amplifier?

When choosing an amplifier, look out for these specifications:

  • Power output:
  • Hint: Be sure to look at speaker sensitivity, since this has a big effect.
  • THD+N:
  • Hint: Lower numbers are better.
  • SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio):
  • Hint: Bigger numbers are better!
  • Crosstalk:

Which of the following class has poorest linearity?

Class C amplifiers
Explanation: Class C amplifiers have high efficiency but have the poorest linearity since they only take less than 180° oscillations.

What are some of the best books about electronic circuits?

Circuit Theory of Electron Devices, E. Milton Boone, 1953, 499 pages – Courtesy of Gary Smith Though the title may be a little misleading, this is a college textbook about circuits. Most of this book is dedicated to telephony. Sections on acoustics and transducers, fundamental electronics, and details on telephone systems.

Who wrote “Electronics for Dummies”?

Harry Kybett wrote the first two editions (first published 30 years ago) and after his demise, Earl Boysen wrote the latest third edition. Harry Kybett was director of engineering at Columbia Pictures. Earl Boysen is an engineer and co author of the popular “ Electronics for Dummies ” book. “What next after learning basics?”

What is the best book to learn about vacuum tubes?

Engineering Electronics, George Happell and Wilfred Hesselberth, 1953, 508 pages – Courtesy of Earles McCaul This is a newer college text, covering vacuum tubes, circuit analysis, and some practical amplifier design considerations. More practical than some texts, it even includes some tube curves for popular tubes of the day.

Are there any chapters on electronic devices in this textbook?

Only one chapter on “electronic” devices (tubes and tube circuits). As you might guess from the title, this textbook is all about the theory and design of amplifiers. While mostly containing tube circuits it does include some information on those new-fangled transistor things.
