Understanding Hi-Fi Circuits by Norman Crowhurst
Quantity in Basket:
Reprinted classic from one of the greatest authors to write on the subject of hi-fi. Helps explain the inevitable compromises in audio design and how they affect sound reproduction. |Norman Crowhurst was the nearest thing to a perfect audio author audiophiles have ever had, and was also marvelously understandable by all levels of readers. Fortunately he wrote on a wide variety of audio topics. His untimely death in 1992 was a major loss to audiophiles everywhere. This volume, first published in 1957, is vintage Crowhurst, at once amazingly insightful, but also down-to-earth. The underlying theme of the book is the fact that absolute perfection in audio circuitry is impossible. Therefore, in each chapter, Crowhurst discusses all the relevant design choices involved in a selected class of audio components and how to reach a balance of design compromises. The book's title. Understanding Hi-Fi Circuits, clearly states his theme which he discusses in his introductory section.
