5.0 out of 5 stars This is it!, July 20 2002
I finally found "THE" book to meet our needs. I am an assistant teacher at the Electronics Engineering School at Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria, Lima, Peru. For years we have been trying to find a book on which to rely on for the complete course of Television Engineering. Our choice has been made, this is the book. Despite the few differences between the second and third edition, which we celebrate, the contents of this books is a condensed coverage of all topics related to television in a modern view. Our goal is to teach our students the widest range of knowedge about television systems, starting from analog TV up to DTV, and happily, this books covers it all. My favorite chapter is… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Oldies but goldies, Sept. 30 2000
Vacuum tubes technology, a must for electronics technicians and engineers only 30 years ago, has limited its action to a few applications. One of them, and for artistical reasons, is audio amplifiers. But the main application nowadays, is RF high power amplifiers. Radio and TV transmitters, for example. One single tube is able to handle the whole power driven by the final stage of the transmitter. That is sometimes an adventage for engineers. But anyway, there still are thousands of transmitters in the world that are using high power tubes. I work on one of them, and this book is the ONLY ONE, and I mean this, that has allowed me to know the deepest secrets of this technology that, of… Read more
Sound Studio Construction on a Budget by F. Alton Everest
4.0 out of 5 stars A good complement, July 25 2000
If you read the first books of Mr. Everest, this practical approach is a very useful complement. I use it as a series of examples of my courses on Acoustics. The theorical treatment of difussion is very good, and completes what has been said about it in the Master Handbook of Acoustics. Two good and easy to understand examples are the talk booth and the home project studio, the latter for the difussion approach (you will learn here about the bass trap, the skyline and the abflector, all in one chapter) and the former for the axial modes treatment. Here, again, the Cutoff frequency (chapter 18) is different from the one in the other books written by Mr Everest. What is the truth… Read more
