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.

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.

By the way, I am getting a music education now. As for the profile subjects, this is interesting to me. But I have difficulty in mathematics, physics, chemistry. These are not profile subjects and they are difficult for me. What do you think here https://edubirdie.com/ can help with homework here? I can't solve it on my own.

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

It's a fun hobby. Good luck 

I got help of guys from those guys and didn't regret. So I would like to share it  with you. There are the cheapest prices I've seen ever
