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 KP-1022 turntable

A high-quality turntable Frequency Response the budget-minded audiophile
The KP-1022 features a low-mass, low-friction tone arm with adjustable anti-skating to maintain precise center-of-groove tracing for greater stereo separation and optimum tracking. A full-sized, 12-inch aluminum alloy die-cast platter is isolated from residual vibration by a belt-drive coupling between the synchronous motor shaft and the turntable. The result - accurate at all speeds rotation with unaudible wow and flutter (less than 0,07%, WRMS) and Signal-to-Noise ratio of better than 45 dB.
Add to the fine engineering the unit's handsome styling, and you have a stereo turntable you can well be pround to own, at a price that fits happily into your stereo budget.
