Audio Education


I am new to the audiophile world. Does anybody have any good references or sources to read up on the physics of- Amps, preamps, ohms, resistance, etc.  Technology surrounding audio equipment.
Something like audio-phonics for dummies. 
Thanks

Read any posts on this forum from almarg and/or atmasphere. 

Jimmy, I think what you are looking for is one of the books written back in the 1950’s, by guys like Harry F. Olsen. A technical book, with electronic theory and principles for aspiring audio engineers. Don’t bother with an "audiophile" book---writers of them speak in subjective language, not technical.

By the way, if you’re in the San Francisco Bay area, Roger Modjeski of Music Reference is teaching a class in amplifier design. Taking that class would be a great way to both learn audio engineering and build your own tube power amp. If I still lived in my hometown of San Jose, I’d do it myself.

Hey great suggestions. I will check into those.  Unfortunately I live in Denver,. But looking at the local colleges maybe beneficial. Thanks 
The bible is here and has never been equaled IMHO: Audio Cyclopedia by Howard M. Tremaine, 1969. A little expensive (~$120) and huge at 1,700 pages, but it has EVERYTHING including audio designs and history. Also found on eBay.

For some pointers on cables and various cable geometries (i.e. how they are constructed, take a look at this link...

http://image99.net/blog/files/category-cable-science-basics.html

It mainly deals with DIY cables but it also explains the benefits of different  cable materials, geometries/, connectors

If DIY is not your thing then I would take a look at Anticables products - they are very good and reasonably priced.

If you want excellent performers then take a look at KLE Innovations products - they really outdo most other cables - even their entry level cables outperform most others

The link is my site, so if you have any questions ask away.

Regards
The definitive book on loudspeaker and room interaction is this one by Floyd Toole, recently updated to a third edition.

after education on audio and electronics, you will stop being audiophile.

To learn about listening rooms, read 'Master Handbook of Acoustics' by F. Alton Everest.

It's a fun hobby. Good luck

Welcome to the audiophile world! You can try reading "The Jazz of Physics" by Stephon Alexander. It is a very good source if you just want to learn on your own. There are also many references in the internet that you can refer to. I personally like to read, then write about it to see how much I’ve learned. If you need to write a paper regarding this subject, dream essays will be of great help as they have writers with access to a wide source of references.
Sometimes the difficult thing with learning is finding a starting point to build from based on your own education / experience / knowledge... it’s easy to jump in too deep too early and get put off by the parts you don’t understand. I’d suggest the following (obviously fast-forward if you already know the stuff).
1) Start with a site like this or this.
2) Read up on DC, AC, Resistors, Capacitors, Inductors, Semiconductors (mainly Diodes & Transistors)
3) Get a copy of the Loudspeaker Design Cookbook (if you want to know about speakers too)
4) Search up Rod Elliott and Douglas Self and maybe buy a book or two
5) If you want some help understanding get an account with diyaudio.com.
6) If you’re still interested download some simulation software, which is a great way to learn (TinaTI / Spice / speaker design software)
7) Design and make some stuff
8) Go to diyaudio.com to find out why the stuff you just made didn’t work
9) Read up some more
10) Make some better stuff
11) Goto 7

Beware... once you reach point 7 you are in an infinite loop that cannot be escaped!

edit: meant to say... don't get too hung up on the maths if it's not your thing you should still be able to understand the principles.
I guess this one would be the best. It's like two in one benefit.

I learned a lot from:

-Robert Harley's - The Complete Guide to High-End Audio
-Floyd Toole's -  Sound Reproduction - The Acoustics and Psychoacoustics of Loudspeakers and Rooms
-Jim Smith's - Get Better Sound

Blogs have always been my source of entertainment because I just love ww2 luftwaffe flying jacket reading and your blog has made me contended. So keep up the good work.

+1 on the 'Complete Guide to High End Audio', also 'Master Handbook on Acoustics'.

Why not? There are many resources where you can found proper teaching or paper help to read the physics of- Amps, preamps, ohms, resistance, etc. Edumagnate.com is also one of those resources.
