This new edition of ‘Talking Bits and Bytes’ will help us understand the mysteries of the decibel. Whatever we are making or measuring the decibel shows up: amplifiers, filters, line transmission, sensors and sound, there is always a decibel figure showing up. And what is it with dBv and dBu?
Stuart Yaniger is an electronics and audio expert and he can explain us in simple words and (not to forget) drawings what the decibel is and how to interpretate the numbers.
This is part 1 of The Mysterious decibel. In part 2 we dig a bit deeper into this subject.
