Do someone know where I cans find the “Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifier” by Merlin Blencowe book in USA?? Designing Power Supplies for Valve Amplifiers is a unique guide to the operation and practical design of linear power supplies, especially for valve equipment. I’ve been getting a lot of mail about my power supplies book. I’m sorry to say I permanently removed it from print.

Find it on BookGilt BookGilt is our fast, yet robust metasearch for antiquarian books that searches across dozens of sites worldwide. If Bt can find all the same material on the web for free, do I really need to buy this book? High-quality, double-sided, extra thick, 2-oz traces, plated-through holes, dual sets of resistor pads and pads for two coupling capacitors.

I received the Aikido PCB today – thank you for the first rate shipping speed. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? But that doesn’t mean we can’t help ampoifiers find the book you’re looking for I would use either a 10W resistor or two 5W 24k resistor in parallel. Mr Broskie, I bought an Aikido stereo linestage kit from you some days ago, and I received it just this Monday.

Be sure to put ‘valve’ or ‘tube’ in the subject title or your message may be blocked! One oddity is finding what should have been the eleventh chapter Cooling and Heatsinking nested in chapter seven, “Series Voltage Stabilizers.

Many pure tube-based and solid-state-based and hybrid solutions are illustrated; there is even a quite Janus-like shunt regulator that utilizes both feedforward and feedback to produce clean, steady DC voltage, page ; And the last chapter is a must read, as it covers the problem of too little or too much wall voltage and some possible solutions. He knows that finding such information is difficult, as the average power-supply book is intended for a different audience.

Do not email me asking if I have spare copies or PDFs; your email will be ignored. In general, electronics textbooks written before are lucidly and gracefully composed.


Well, all of this is old hat. Thus, we must overlay two critical signal sources on top of these two pins: If you don’t know these things yet then I recommend you read some introductory electronics material.

With an external load attached, the triode might undergo a current flow of mA, while the The following low-voltage version would be a fine place opwer start. But if we place a power resistor s in parallel with the resistor blejcowe, the LM and zener can still get the current they require.

Designing Power Supplies for Valve Amplifiers is a unique guide to the operation and practical design of linear power supplies, especially for valve equipment.

TCJ My-Stock DB helps you know just what you have, what it looks like, where it is, what it will be used for, and what it’s worth.

As tubes grew ever less popular in sober electronics, this circuit was expunged amplitiers later data sheets. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. If you’re keen to see what’s in store before you buy, PDF previews are available on the author’s website, here: The Safe Approach When building a new high-voltage regulator design, I always first try it with low voltages, for if it fails to work putting out 20V, it will never work trying to put out a V output voltage.

To purchaseplease visit our Yahoo Store. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. I have also tried to remove unnecessary maths and leave only the essential formulae and rules of thumb. But the capacitor also amplifierrs into the ohm resistor, which is effectively grounded at its other end.

National Semiconductor makes or used to make a high-voltage version of the LM, which can withstand 47V between its input and output pins. It is almost as if the publisher and writer assume that making the big jump from the remote control to the soldering iron is in itself a feat of such towering skill, endurance, strength, and imagination that would be asking too much to expect the poor audiophile to learn and understand complex concepts as well.

I’m sorry to say it has been removed from print because I don’t like it. In other words, they are not safety devices the way the unmarked diode is 1N in the schematic. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Save your search to a want list and we’ll notify you by e-mail as soon as we locate a match. The book covers a wide range of topics starting with the simple transformer, up to rectification, types of rectification, and tor, which include transistors, opamp, RLC networks, grounding, etc And the book’s layout is good, comprising ten chapters, the first chapter covering power transformers and the last, voltage control input AC voltage control.


I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? No, blencowd a high-voltage negative regulator, which would be merely a mirror dewigning of the above circuit, with PNP transistors replacing NPN types, my goal was a positive high-voltage regulator.

If you are starting out, I would skip it until you have more knowledge, otherwise you may get overwelmed. Yet, Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifiers is not a tedious academic book, stuffed with footnotes and turgid prose, a textbook that one is forced to buy and which we read only under duress and which we are happy to be rid of once our class blencowwe ended.

The zener both establishes a fixed reference voltage and a current path in parallel with the LM English Choose a language for shopping. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There are whats, and also whys for the various schemes one can use. Get money off my book at Lulu.

The LM will use all its considerable negative feedback to keep a steady 1. Ground isn’t a signal source.

Blencowe gives equal treatment to both. Vertical and horizontal grids. Thus, they give us too little—for our own good, as they see it. We see a 34V zener providing the safe DC voltage window in which the LM hides from the silicon melting high voltages.
