Compare Audio Amplifier and Tuned Amplifier

Audio amplifiers
  • It amplifies wide band of frequencies. 
  • Resistive load is used in the collector circuit of the transistor. 
  • The resistive load does not depend upon the signal frequency.

Tuned amplifiers
  • It amplifies narrow or selective band of frequencies. 
  • Parallel tuned circuit is used in series with collector circuit of the transistor. 
  • The impedance of the parallel tuned circuit depends upon the signal frequency.
  • The impedance of the parallel tuned circuit is very high at resonant frequency whereas its value goes on decreasing at off resonance frequencies. 
  • The tuned amplifiers are used to select specific frequency in the radio receiver.
