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.

Kenwood KF-8011

 Kenwood Solid State Audio Denoiser  KF-8011 does not belong to the conventinal noise filter which excludes necessary signals together with noises. It functions as the S/N Stretcher or Noise Reduction System used in the process of disc production, and electronically eliminates the noises included in the sources.  Thanks to its exclusive circuitry, KF-8011 remarkably increases the signal to noise ratio and fully refreshes the program sources. It's especially profitable for tape dubbing.
 Special features
Minute Denoising
The KF-8011 decreases the noises between 3 kHz and 15 kHz, which affects most badly on the sound performance, by 6 - 10 dB. The built-in Frequency Selector enables to pick up the particular frequency range in order to denoise precisely.

Noise level Adjustor
The KF-8011 features a pair of large Level Meters and 10-step type level Adjustor for setting and monitoring the suitable level pint of program sources. In addition, the volume of cut-off noises can be controlled by the Noise level Adjustor. That means KF-8011 always functions so as to keep the S/N ratio the best condition.

Sufficient Input Jacks
As the Denoiser is to be connected to the Rec/Play terminals of an amplifier, KF-8011 has the complete input and output for tape decks including DIN connector. It also has 4 pairs of input jacks and by the Input Selector on the front panel 4 sources are switchable.
Check System for Denoising Condition
The built-in Defeat Switch permits to check the denoising condition - what frequency range is to be denoised, how much the S/N ratio has been improved, etc.

Automatic Circuit Switching
As shown on the following diagram, the Denoiser is to be inserted to the input side when making refined recording, and to the output side when enjoying refined playback. It is, however, quite needless to reconnect KF-8011. The Denoiser Position on the front panel switches the circuitry automatically.
