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.

Phase Linear Model 5000

 The Phase Linear Model 5000 FM Tuner fully compliments our line of separate components both in appearance and philosophy.
Until now, separate component manufactures have put most of their design emphasis into reaching the theoretical limits of FM receiving. Few consumers, however, can actually benefit from these technical achievements simply because the broadcast itself is too mediocre. A cure for that problem is what we have added to our tuner.
The Phase Linear 5000 combines excellent receiving capabilities along with a unique linear expansion circuit which compensates for the problems associated with FM broadcast. Consequently, the 5000 FM Tuner delivers dynamic range and sonic quality audibly beyond that which has been available.
