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.

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?
