This book is essential for audio power amplifier designers and engineers for one simple reason...it enables you as a professional to develop reliable, high-performance circuits. The Author Douglas Self covers the major issues of distortion and linearity, power supplies, overload, DC-protection and reactive loading. He also tackles unusual forms of compensation and distortion produced by capacitors and fuses. This completely updated fifth edition includes four NEW chapters including one on The XD Principle, invented by the author, and used by Cambridge Audio. Crosstalk, power amplifier input systems, and microcontrollers in amplifiers are also now discussed in this fifth edition, making this book a must-have for audio power amplifier professionals and audiophiles.It allows an amplifier to approximate more closely to a perfect voltage source, which would give exactly twice the power into 4 U that it gives into 8 U. In ... Assume for the moment that we have an amplifier which gives 100 Watts into 8 U. There will be emitter resistors in the output stage, and the lowest value ... clipping circuit will have no time-constants which may gather unwanted charges during overload.
