This course introduces students to the theory and practice of audio electronics. Students explore basic circuit theory and apply this knowledge to practical circuits that they encounter in musical applications. Students explore DC and AC signal flow; resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, and operational amplifiers; transmission lines; transformers; and power amplifiers. Students analyze and trace signal flow through several common audio circuits.
