    Hello I am new to this forum and stumbled upon it because it was one of the few forums I could find for this type of question. I have been trying to research Mag Amps for audio applications over the past week and have been unable to find much detailed information on them. The most helpful site I was able to find was I still don't completely understand their implementation (the control winding for example in the schematic on the link I referred to above). I was hoping some people on this forum might be able to point me to some places that have alot of resources on audio mag amp design and theory. I appreciate any help that you guys can offer. Thanks, Keith.

    Here are some quotes from Integrated Publishing:

    They are called amplifiers because they can control large currents with small ones. I have never heard of them being used to amplify audio.
