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.

The  Lafayette LA-226C is a self-contained instrument designed for the control and reproduction of all stereophonic and monophonic sources. Features a "pilot monitor"  stereo indicator which tells you instantly whether or not an FM station is broadcasting in stereo multiplex. The receiver section consists of an AM/FM tuner with built-in multiplex which provides more than 30 dB separation at 400 cycles. A sensitivity of 2 µV for 20 dB of quieting is achieved by the FM circuit with AFC defeat assuring reception of even the weakest signals. FM noise and filter slide switch cuts out unwanted station noise. The AM section features a superheterodyne circuit with AVC, and built-in ferrite loop antenna. The 40 watt amplifier section features large power fransformers and a frequency response of 20 - 20,000 cps ±2 dB. Less than 1,5% harmonic distortion on all modes.complete stereo preamp facilities provide dual concentric front panel controls for bass and treble, volume control balance, blend for variable channel separation from 5-position selection switch stereo to mono, (AM, FM, Stereo, Phono, Aux), 4-position amplifier mode switch (A, B, AB, REV), rumble filter slide switch, loudness slide switch, jack for stereo headphones, and On-Off power switch. Read controls include: Speaker phase switch, 8-16 Ω impedance selector switch , dimension control adjustment, speaker on/off switch, AC outlet, fuse and stereo tape outputs
