Advantages, disadvantages and applications of single stage RC coupled CE amplifier


  • It has wide frequency response and large bandwidth.
  • It is most convenient and least expensive amplifier.
  • It provides high audio fidelity.
  • It has low amplitude distortion.
  • It provides low frequency distortion.


  • It has a tendency to become noisy with age especially in moist climate.
  • The voltage gain reduces at low as well as high frequencies.
  • It provides poor impedance matching and hence it cannot be used as a final stage of an amplifier.


  • It is used in the initial stages of public address (PA) amplifier systems.
  • It is used in stereo amplifier.
  • It is widely used as a voltages amplifier.
  • It is used in tape recorder, CD players, VCRs, DVD players, etc.
  • It is used in radio and television receivers.
