High Performance Audio Power Amplifiers by Ben Duncan

By Ben Duncan

Power amplifiers and their functionality lie on the middle of audio engineering and supply a few hard difficulties for the engineer. Ben Duncan's adventure, as an audio advisor, analog electronics dressmaker and writer, supply him an detailed perception into this hard yet worthwhile field.

Linking analog electronics, acoustics, warmth and tune expertise; high-end hi-fi PA and recording studio use; thought, modelling and real-world perform; layout and service; the previous and the hot, the mainstream and the specialized, this complete advisor to strength amps is a center reference for someone within the undefined, and any onlookers.

Ben Duncan is widely known to many clients of audio strength amplifiers around the globe, either expert and family, via his articles, stories and examine papers on track know-how within the united kingdom and US press, and during his half in developing numerous outstanding expert energy amplifiers. given that 1977, he has been interested by the layout of over 70 leading edge, high-end audio items utilized by recording and broadcast studios, on levels, in golf equipment and through the main severe family listeners - in addition to growing bespoke apparatus for prime musicians. Born in London, he has travelled broadly yet has lived in most cases in Lincolnshire, domestic of his relations for over a hundred and fifty years. he's two times co-author of the publication Rock during which he has chronicled the historical past of rock'n'roll PA.
