Tube Ccts

  1. Jun 15, 2006 #1
    Hey everyone!

    I have a project going on with a friend...a hifi tube amp! yeehaw!

    Im going to start small the 60 watt range (30 per channel) and am wondering if anyone has any recommended reading for tube amp circuits, i need a book that gets right down into the dirt of tubes so that i can design it from the roots up with very low noise level and ideal configurations.

    Any direction is greatly appreciated as I just got through my EE degree and we didnt even touch on vacuum tubes once...everything is solid state and digital it seems. grrrrrr not in the audiophile wolrd :D

    Take good care all,

    Here is a short tutorial on the internet:


    Just a thought.. if you are going for low noise, vaccum tubes may not be the ticket. Most audiophiles I know like the sound from these units because they are not very clean. The second harmonic distortion does have a rather pleasant effect, especially with old Fender guitar amps.
