I have to admit that I had low expectations, not because I was prejudiced against its author, but for the simple reason that most books intended for DIY audio electronics—and perhaps particularly for those intended for tube-audio—tend to be too simple-minded. It is almost as if the publisher and writer assume that making the big jump from the remote control to the soldering iron is in itself a feat of such towering skill, endurance, strength, and imagination that would be asking too much to expect the poor audiophile to learn and understand complex concepts as well. Thus, they give us too little—for our own good, as they see it. Blencowe's book, on the other hand, is not a piece of fluff, as he does not insult our intelligence nor withhold the goods. Yet, Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifiers is not a tedious academic book, stuffed with footnotes and turgid prose, a textbook that one is forced to buy and which we read only under duress and which we are happy to be rid of once our class has ended. Blencowe knows who his DIY readers are and what their hopes and expectations are.
