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.

Philips LHH-1000 CD player

Philips Compact Disc Player LHH U00

The Philips Reference Series LHH 1000 is now the standard by which other compact disc players will be measured. Other companies may claim state-of-the-art technology but the world's most particular audiophiles-Philips engineers- have achieved it, designing a technological masterpiece that is as pure and complete as any Mozart sonata.

A limited edition - and in strictly limited quantities the Philips LHH 1000 says much about the people who designed the system and the discerning buyer. It says only the best will do ...only a level of excellence attained after years of dedication to achieving the finest musical reproduction possible.


Every component of the Philips LHH 1000 is hand chosen for maximum performance. At the heart of the separate digital-to-analog converter and digital filter are special Select Grade TDA-1541 "AS -1" chips with four times oversampling that realize a startling 15,75 bits of resolution from the 16 bits available in the compact disc format. The highest resolution yet achieved in compact disc. Linearity error and distortion barely register. In fact, ail specifications are where you would expect them to be-at the top of their class.

The separate transport section features the professional quality, broadcast standard Philips CDM-1 mechanism made of die cast aluminum alloy. An extremely accurate single beam laser pickup floats on a Radialinear swinging arm that improves tracking ability and offers faster track-to- track access times. And, of course, the LHH 1000 has the renowned Philips Favorite Track Selection (FTS) system to program your entire CD collection. Connections between the Reference Compact Disc Player System (DAC and transport) can be made with coaxial or optical fiber cable with diamond polished connectors. This ensures 100 percent error free transmission of digital data, resulting in truly lifelike, distortion -free sound. 


The utmost thought and care went into every aspect of the LHH 1000. There are no plastic parts anywhere in the chassis assembly. The elegant looks belie durable and rugged construction that is second to none.

A sophisticated Learning Type Universal remote control is capable of learning 150 functions from other remotes. LCD readouts complements the system to provide complete fingertip control of this state-of-the-art CD player.

There is no question: the Philips LHH 1000 has set the gold standard for CD technology. It is the finest compact disc player currently available, for people with no tolerance for imperfection.
