This book presents the design, analysis and testing of fully balanced RIAA phono amps and measurement tools. The content of this book extends a standard reference about RIAA phono amps "the sound of silence" by Burkhard Vogel. Here, the gap is filled between a semi-balanced engine (RIAA Phono-Amp Engine I) and a fully balanced engine, the RIAA Phono-Amp Engine II. In this new book on hand, "fully balanced" means that each phono-amp stage ends up in a balanced - or in other words symmetrical - solution, differentially amplified. Un-balanced / single-ended solutions are not in the scope.
