Welcome to my place!

Audio Resource Jan Didden

It's great to have you here!

This place is where I talk about my personal projects, interests and whatnot. Not necessarily related to audio, although it often is. Under the Musings button you'll find things related to perception and conciousness which of course are very much applicable to audio!

My library lists lots of (historic) audio papers and studies that I personally find important to understand many different issues in audio.

I also have collected the interviews I've done with audio luminaries. Take some time to read and digest them - there are very interesting and worthwhile gems in each of them! My projects however is audio stuff - things I designed, wrote articles about, and my personal system. Comments and remarks are always welcome!

Last but surely not least, let me mention my publication Linear Audio. Published twice per year, over 200 pages of technical audio related articles from international authors. Article abstracts and author bio's can be read at the website, and some articles are available for free online.

So, take a look around, explore the various areas and let me know what you think!

Balanced Phono-Amps

I usually do not discuss audio books here, I used to publish reviews in Linear Audio. But this book is unique and needs some attention, so there!

Readers of Linear Audio will be familiar with author Burkhard Vogel; he heas written extensively about tube and low-noise design, and has several books published by the prestigeous Springer Nature publishers of Germany. This book, Balanced Phono-Amps has everything you might ever need to ask about the subject. In his tradition, Burkhard combines simulation, calculation and MathCad for cross-verification and confirmation.

Burkhard has kindly allowed me to post his preface here, which will give you a good insignt in his way of thinking and what to expect of the book. Recommended!
