How to Make High Power Audio Amplifier Circuits
Even the most sophisticated DVD player or TV system may be useless without a corresponding audio output. This is enough to prove that visual entertainment is incomplete without audio, but the audio systems are just independent.
Today audio systems have become an integral part of our life, and entertainment is directly linked or synonymous with music. It all started when these amazing devices called transistors were invented; however, they looked quite different initially from the modern miniature ones.
Primitive transistors were big and bulky, called triodes, pentodes, etc. after the names of the vacuum tubes they worked like and probably replaced. These devices precisely became responsible for the development of audio systems and completely revolutionized the world by introducing the first audio amplifiers- the music era had begun.
Further research miniaturized these devices and enhanced them in the form of integrated circuits which could generate awesome audio amplification and deliver powerful music outputs, yet occupy minimum spaces.
The market today is cluttered up with a host of these systems, whether you are interested in amplifying the sound from your DVD player, home theater system, DJ installation, Walkman, or cell phone, you can get them all here, with a variety of shapes and specs.
In this section we begin with understanding of the different types of home audio systems, take a sneak peak at an amplifier circuit design involving tubes (interestingly folks still love to make them) and move ahead with many modern audio circuits that may be built right on your workbench. The circuits range from most simple to massive high power types.
