It takes a while to get into this book mostly talk about circuits and applications.
This one is not for me and above what I expected from author.
This takes a lot of understanding in tubes & circuits to get through this one.
The book is not written for the Hobbyist who is looking for schematics or wiring diagrams.
It gave an insight in the tube and circuits aspect.

Fun and interesting May 14 2013
By Magellan - Published on Amazon.com
It's not as easy to find good books on tube electronics anymore, in this age of the semi-conductor. But tubes have their own fascination and features that make them unique, which starts with the fact that tubes are basically voltage-controlled devices and transistors are basically current-controlled devices.

This book contains a fun collection of DIY projects aimed mainly at those interested in building their own OTL (output transformerless amps). But there are several other projects as well, such as a tube tester and a low power amp that are also interesting in their own right. There's tons of miscellaneous useful information on various tube concepts that will expand your knowledge. The book starts out with a basic introduction to electronics and tubes that even an inexperienced non-hobbyist and non-engineer would be able to follow with a little effort.

If you want a general introduction to tubes that includes more specialized tube concepts such as lighthouse tubes (a type of triode tube useful in ultra-high frequency applications such as microwave communications), cavity resonators and cavity magnetrons, tube waveguides, or klystron tubes (also useful in microwave ovens and particle accelerators), you'll need to get a text on general communications electronics such as the classic book by Robert Shrader. But for a terrific little hobby book with some great projects and easy to understand explanations you won't find better than this book.

Audio DIYer's "must-have" July 30 2012
By CharlieM - Published on Amazon.com
The long awaited follow up to "Audio Reality," this new book "Tubes and Circuits" is more in-depth and loaded with tons of useful and specific information. For anyone interested in electronics in general and tubes in particular. All presented in a manner in which even "non technical types" can follow. Although written for anyone, this is a "must-have" edition for any Do-It-Yourself (DIY) audio enthusiast, especially "tube-o-philes" or "tube-o-holics" if for no other reason than the included projects alone. Some of the projects presented are world class, tube-based, ingenious OTL (Output-Transformer-Less) amplifiers with printed curcuits and parts lists included. If you're into tube based audio this is the only book you'll ever need and one you'll definately want in your pile/stack/stash of literature. I already consider it reference material. Highly recommended!

Circuits 101 Nov. 7 2013
By david Boyd - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was one of the first persons to buy this book so I have had a lot of time with it. I have been involved in tube electronics for over 40 years and have built kits and modified existing tube preamps and amplifiers but never fully understood how the different components worked with each other or how to size them. This book answered almost all of my questions in a simple straight forward way. One thing about this book, a lot of information is contained in a very few words so every time I reread a section I locate information that I thought he did not cover. Worth every penny.

Build your own June 19 2013
By adam wilson - Published on Amazon.com

Bruce Rozenblit is a superb engineer who has designed amazing amplifiers for DIYers. I bought this book chiefly as I wanted the designs for his latest and greatest amps (I have built 3 others, 1 from his earlier book 'Audio Reality' and 2 from his website). Every one has been a marvel. If you want some of the best value in audio available and don't want the hassle of sourcing your own parts, buy his kits. If you like to do everything your self, buy the book and implement his designs. You won't be sorry.
