"It is a highly detailed book on the actual design and construction of tube amplifiers…the book covers planning, metalworking, wiring and testing. A real nitty gritty book for hobbyists and serious manufacturers. For example, the book details things like how to orient audio and power transformers to avoid problems of magnetic flux leakage from affecting other transformers or the tubes themselves. The test section is excellent."--ElectronicDesign.com, March 17, 2014
Présentation de l'éditeur
Building Valve Amplifiers is a unique hands-on guide for anyone working with tube audio equipment--as an electronics hobbyist, audiophile or audio engineer. This 2nd Edition builds on the success of the first with technology and technique revisions throughout and, significantly, a major new self-build project, worked through step-by-step, which puts into practice the principles and techniques introduced throughout the book.
Particular attention has been paid to answering questions commonly asked by newcomers to the world of the valve, whether audio enthusiasts tackling their first build or more experienced amplifier designers seeking to learn about the design principles and trade-offs of "glass audio." Safety considerations are always to the fore, and the practical side of this book is reinforced by numerous clear illustrations throughout.
- The only hands-on approach to building valve and tube amps--classic and modern--with a minimum of theory
- Design, construction, fault-finding, and testing are all illustrated by step-by-step examples, enabling readers to clearly understand the content and succeed in their own projects
- Includes a complete self-build amplifier project, putting into practice the key techniques introduced throughout the book

Without offense, I could be wrong, but I get an impression that whatever less-important material didn't find it's way into the first book (because there are practical amp-building projects in it, more than in this one!!!), the author and the publisher decided to massage it into another book. Large font, large margins, huge photos and diagrams, but little practical substance.
The author mentions some important issues and concepts, though not all, but then deals with most of them at a very basic level. I had the same problem with his first book, he seems to go so deep into certain issues (many of which I found of much lesser importance) and does not mention other, more important issues (to me). Of course, we all have our own definitions of what's important and what isn't, but I'm afraid M. Jones, just as almost all contemporary authors on the subject (van der Veen, Rozenblit, at al) do not seem to have the "educational" skills of the older generation of writers (Millman, Seely, de France, Crowhurst), whose books are a pleasure to read. In other words, they make methodological and pedagogical mistakes and omissions.
For instance, a good and reader-friendly book starts with easy issues and goes towards more complex ones. Or, when they talk about something and do lots of mathematical operations, they always tell the reader WHY they are going to do it, and why is it important to go through it, otherwise the reader may get lost or annoyed. These are only a couple of a dozen (and more) "rules" contemporary authors break at their peril.
There was an opportunity to completely revise and improve this book for its 2nd edition, however, I can see very little difference between the two.
In my opinion you will not learn how to design an amplifier but you will learn how to build them, which is the purpose of the book, however if you want to learn all the ins and outs of valve design, there are other books more suitable for the purpose like the other book by Mr. Jones Valve Amplifiers, Fourth Edition will seem more apropriate, or my personal favorite Radio Designer's Handbook, Fourth Edition.
