I have it in print. Good little book....There is a good book from Audio Precision "Audio Measurement Handbook" I think you can download it from their website

Designing Power Suppliers for Valve Amplifiers has very recently been re-released as a second edition.Designing Tube Preamps for Guitar and Bass, 2nd edition - Merlin Blencowe

Designing High Fidelity Valve Preamps - Merlin Blencowe

Designing Power Supplies for Valve Amplifiers - Merlin Blencowe (Out of print?)

Available through Valve Wizard!

Electrical Network Theory by Norman Balabanian and Theodore Bickart, 1969.

Wonder if anyone here had it in school some decades ago?

Lots and lots of linear algebra

I own it, great book, not for beginners..... They have a great chapter on graph theory, not for the faint hearted. From an electric circuits theory perspective, in a difficulty scale from 0-10, this book is probably an 8.

definitely not for beginners

Linear algebra and its applications, D. Lay.

This is a broad introduktion to lin alg with lots of examples in many fields from electronics to programing.

Lots of exercises with solutions.

If you want to go down in the analysing/computational parts of electronics then lin alg is a great tool.

Ive been searching theese last weeks for a lin alg book to invest in for more abstract stuff. And I think i found another classic.

Algebra, M. Artin.

Most books in this level is quite dry and just filled with theorems and proofs. This one has quite a lot of explaining aswell.

I have a better alternative, simpler and more useful for electronics: Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Gilbert Strang, plus, you can also watch the video lectures for free: Differential Equations and Linear Algebra - OCW

I think that second link for the videos is broken, I do not see a URL when I hover the cursor over, and no result when clicking.I have a better alternative, simpler and more useful for electronics: Differential Equations and Linear Algebra by Gilbert Strang, plus, you can also watch the video lectures for free: Differential Equations and Linear Algebra - OCW

You are right, just fixed it, thank you!I think that second link for the videos is broken, I do not see a URL when I hover the cursor over, and no result when clicking.

Thank you for that. You have a goldmine of a database.

I did not realise that Elektuur went as far back as 1965. I think the English edition, Elektor, was introduced in 1975. My first step into electronics was through Elektor in mid '70s.

Great database, the vast majority of books are out of print and obviously too old to be a problem, but there are a few recent books like "The Mastering Engineer's Handbook" from 2008. Perhaps those are opensource?

You have a strong point Dualflip. If a moderator thinks this is not right, there is a knob to remove my link or post. From my part i go email the site with this question. It is a clear question. Is this database allowed?

This is the reply from the website;First of all, happy new year!

Dear Leon,

I understand your problem, but all newer books come from the Internet, sometimes even from the publishers' own sites, so I don't expect any problems with copyrights.

The database has existed for several years and I have only had 1 message from a publisher requesting that 3 books no longer be placed online. It later turned out that these books are still being sold through Amazon.

If a question arises about copyright, the consequences will not be so severe. There will then be a request to delete the relevant document and if that is followed, there will be no further problem.

Closing the entire database therefore seems a bit too much to me.

Sincerely,

With this, i hope to clear out all questions whether this is legal or not.This is the reply from the website;
