'Ben's experience in the professional field holds important messages for the modern designer - the measured performance vs sound quality issue and how it is possible to achieve good results in both areas. Any student who has sat in an electronics lecture which followed the usual, 'Audio power amplifiers are like this...blah...Class A, blah...Class B, waffle' would be advised to get a copy of this book immediately if they value their sanity.'
'The book combines audio fundamentals, electronic principles, engineering and operational practicality in a readable and informative manner which will appeal to the interested end-user, budding designer or maintenance engineer. All in all a very useful contribution in an area which has been poorly addressed until now.'
' Offers gems of practical advice which only experience in the field can
' The credentials of the author are beyond doubt and the information potential
to the reader wishing to improve his knowledge of the subjects discussed in
this book are immense.'
