    Mixed feelings, test equipment section MISSING

    This is an interesting and useful book, similar to Sloane's other book on audio circuits. However, parts may be hard to find. A section on parts subsitution would be most useful, but it is missing.

    HOWEVER! The ONLY reason I bought the book was to get information on home-made audio test equipment, which the descriptions of this book mention.

    The table of contents does not mention test equipment. I skimmed thru the book last night - but - there is NOTHING on test equipment.

    Is this section missing from my copy?

    Unfortunately, I will likely ask for a refund for this item because of the inaccurate description of the book.

    Is there a better book on practical high performance audio amplifiers to build using off the shelf components available in small quantities?

    graphics too small

    i bought this as a ebook and the circuit diagram annotation is too small to read, even zoomed in, which defeated the primary purpose of the book as far as i was concerned. however, minus the diagrams it is a decent book for general audio circuitry reading.
