What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

In may of 1983, Kyocera introduced a CD player with true 16-bit digital filters. Today, the competition's calling this circuit "the latest thing". Years ago we had four-times oversampling. This year every high-end player worth mentioning has a similar design. In september, 1984 Kyocera raised some eyebrows with the world's first Fine Ceramics anti-resonant CD chassis. Now the stores are full of flimsy imitations.
How did all these innovations happen to come from Kyocera, and not some household name? perhaps because kyocera's knowledge of digital circuitry comes fromyears of building computers for some of the best-known names in electronics. perhaps because Kyocera is a world leader in Fine Ceramics, the technology used to house circuitry in aerospace and other advanced applications. Or perhaps beacouse some top-rated CD players form other brands were actually made by Kyocera.

Now Kyocera has four world-beating Compact Disc Players, ranging in suggested retail price from $ 350 to the $800 model DA-710CX shown here. Each boasts technology so advanced, it's a preview of what the competition will be selling in 1989. After all, history does repeat itself.
