“Single Ended Triode Amplifier -From Scratch” Book

by Richard (Dick) Whipple

While solid-state amplifiers offer far better specifications, many audiophiles believe that vacuum tube amplifiers sound "better".  Because of its minimalist design and faithful sound reproduction, the single-ended triode (SET) has been at the forefront of the reemergence of vacuum tube amplifiers.  Without taking sides in the solid-state versus tube debate, I start with the lowly electron and build the theoretical basis for the design of a SET amplifier.  In the final chapters, I present a complete SET example from design to construction.  Like other books in the "From Scratch" series, no prior knowledge of the subject matter is assumed.
