Discussion in 'Tube Audio' started by jaymanaa, Jun 4, 2006.
I got a book at a college lab sale 25 odd years ago that I like to peruse often. It's actually an electronics textbook called "Transistors" by Milton S Kiver.
First published in 1956, a lot of the book studies transistor circuits while comparing them to equivalent circuits built with vacuum tubes.
It's actually a good textbook; I always had trouble with semiconductor theory in college and this book approaches everything from an electron flow point of view rather than conventional flow. Things became much clearer to me. Also was my first real exposure to vacuum tube theory.
A good can stuffing thread:
I have many but they are on my hard drive.
And I just moved
But. I can tell you if you look around there is a plethora of old books about tube amps.
I want this!!! Does anybody know where I can get a copy?
It all makes sense now!!
Here's something I found today: https://spectrum.ieee.org/consumer-electronics/audiovideo/the-cool-sound-of-tubes
Some good common sense from Mullard
People looking for a high-level study of the physics and fundamental physical processes of vacuum tubes will find in this book a valuable resource:
Karl R. Spangenberg, "Vacuum Tubes", McGraw-Hill (1948)
