About the authors

Douglas Self

Affiliations and Expertise

Douglas Self has a worldwide reputation as a leading authority on audio amplifier design, but it is perhaps less well known that he has devoted a good deal of study to small-signal circuitry, including many years as the chief design engineer at one of the major mixing console manufacturers, where his achievements included winning a Design Council Award. His rigorous, skeptical, and thoroughly practical approach to design has been applied to the small signal area as well, and some of the results to be found in this book. Senior designer of high-end audio amplifiers and contributor to Electronics World magazine, Douglas has worked with many top audio names, including Cambridge Audio, TAG-McLaren Audio, and Soundcraft Electronics.

Reviews

'This is a true handbook in the ‘just-about-everything-you’d-want-to-know-in-one-volume’ sense of the word... It is a resource for those who would like to gain some of Self’s deep understanding of the subtleties of amplifier designs' - Joshua Israelsohn, EDN (review of 3e)
