electronics theory (for the working man)

Post by mid mod audio »

Hi Mark,

I'm wondering if you can do a video (or series) covering electronics theory that every tech (not engineer) should know when repairing and restoring vintage audio gear?

Mr Carlson has been running a series on his patreon channel starting from reading schematics and now in part 6 he is doing amplifier signal path. Yeah you have to pay for patreon but to me the 2$ i spend is not bad. He is a good teacher and not doing it at the engineer level either

I wasn't aware that he had another channel. I'll look into it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Interesting thread. I'm a member of Mr. Carlson's Patreon, and I think his videos are excellent; for me however he concentrates more than I'd like on tube electronics. I'm trying hard to educate myself in solid-state audio. It seems that tube electronics are getting more attention these days in this type of video, but maybe that's just my perspective. Excellent channel nonetheless.

I think its because a lot of 2 and 4 year EE programs cover everything needed related to solid state but these guy/gals are left with no working knowledge of tubes, they teach zero about them these days.

The W2AEW youtube also has "back to basics" tutorials on basic electronic devices and circuits.

A very good book one can download to learn about tubes. Very basic stuff, easy reading and very understandable.

Wow, is a big book but I did some browsing already and looks easy enough to follow, the drawings are pretty cool. To me some look like little devils. :lol:
