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.

Luxman R-113

 "Ultimate Power" Recivers
The new R-113, R-115 and R-117 receivers are excellent examples of Luxman's  "Ultimate Power" amplifier designs.
The R-113, the most affordable model in Luxman's new line of receivers, includes a high-speed dynamic amplifier that delivers up to 100 dynamic watts into a 2 ohms load. And a high-efficiency toroidal power transformer is coupled with high-energy storage capacitors to provide the dynamics and steady state reserves necessary for the most demanding music transients. 
All three receivers employ voltage amplifications circuitry that ensures the "tube-like", musical warmth of traditional Luxman amplifiers.  In addition,  CD Straight circuitry routes CD input signals past all signal processor and switching functions to provide optimum accuracy, imaging and impact.
Complementing this performance are an array of advanced features that lend versatility and precise control over a wide range of functions .

  1. This was my first radio as i was about 10 years old, offered by my uncle.
    It has a unique anti clipping feature that, when volume was turned too hot and some clipping was detected, a relay turned on to temporary cut off the output.

  2. R113 sounds very nice more like hi end then mid fi

  3. very nice amp, rich full sound
