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.

B&O Beogram 3404

Bang & Olufsen Beogram 3404
Meet the beogram 3404, an intelligent, thoughtful an dvery well spoken turntable.
Like all Bang & Olufsen turntables, the 3404 effectively combines superior sound reproduction  with simplified - not complicated - operation. That's the real beauty of the 3404. that's why the controls are outside of the dust cover where they're easily accessible.
And that's why just a light touch of the Start button does everything. It determines if a record is on the platter, and if so, quickly sets the correct speed and lowers the stylus to the record.
Slam. Pound the shelf next to the 3404. not a skip, not a jump; thanks to the rock-steady patendted suspension system. Audible acoustic feedback disappears as a result.
A low inertia tonearm with a knife-edge bearing system eliminates audible distortion.
The Bang & Olufsen MMC cartridge works in flawless harmony with the tonearm. The unique self-correcting electronic servo-drive is so precise that the need for a conventional strobe device is eliminated.
 the Beogram 3404 even responds to remote control commands when used with the beomaster 2400 receiver.

B&O Beomaster 1900

 The Beomaster 1900 Receiver
The dramatic center of the Beosystem 1900 is the Beomaster 1900 receiver. Its operation borders on magical, its performance is without audible flaw,,its aesthetics are beyond reproach. It is a component which has truly domesticated high fidelity.
All major functions of the 1900 receiver are controlled by touch-sensitive electronic switches: the sculpted depressions aligned along the top panel. They are volume, input selection, selection of up to five user pre-set FM stations, and standby. These controls function electronically, completely eliminating mechanical linkages which can wear out or become misaligned (estimated to cause approximately 80% of service problems).
 When any of the electronic controls are touched, a lighted indicator immediately appears directly above. You always know the operational status of the 1900, even from across the room.
 The 1900 also allows you to pre-set up to five FM stations for instant, electronically accurate recall. Four separate tuning indicators and the main random tuning dial are located under the aluminum lid. By tuning the four indicators to those stations you listen to most frequently, they may be recalled by simply touching their respective control on the front panel. The main tuning dial can also be set at a preferred station and this station immediately recalled by a control on the front panel. Random tuning is accomplished by a flush-set tuning control moved effortlessly by a single finger. Also, positioned under the aluminum cover is the AFC which, when in effect, eliminates drift from the stations you select.
Also found under the aluminum lid are the controls for adjusting bass, treble, and balance between your speakers. These controls are smooth sliding potentiometers. Easily viewed, illuminated indicators are used to show visually the extent to which the controls have been moved from their neutral position.
 The Beomaster 1900 receiver has a split power supply which provides optimum performance throughout the frequency range. All output transistors are usd conservatively and an electronic protection circuit automatically respondes to any overload, breaking the circuit and preventing any damage from occuring to receiver or speakers. The tuner section of the 1900 utilizes FETs for high sensitivity and selectivity,PLL circuitry is used to guarantee excellent channel separation and greater long term circuit stability. Ceramic filters and integrated circuits in the IF amplifier and stereo decoder provide excellent separation and low harmonic distortion.

NAD 1300 pre-amplifier

The 1300 was designed for the technically sophisticated audiophile who requires both state-of-the-art. sound and a high degree of operating flexibility
For listeners who are committed to the LP as an important source of music, the 1300 contains a highdefinition FET-input phono preamplifier with excellent sound-stage imaging and astonishing resolution of inner detail. No trace of slew-limiting or transient distortion can be found, even in high-level signal peaks 25 dB above normal level. Selectable input capacitance and precise RIAA equalisation ensure that the sound of each recording is accurately preserved

Using eight selected low-noise transistors per channel, this MM phono circuit provides unusually effective rejection of radio-frequency Interference from nearby digital circuits, cordless phones, and radio/TV transmitters. It is supplemented by an elegantly simple class-A preamplifier that provides quieter play-back with low-output moving-cod pick-ups than most preamps provide with a high-output MM cartridge
In addition to the features described on the preceding pages, the 1300 includes a special “Null” circuit that electronically subtracts any monaural information from the audio signal. Using this feature, you can easily align your cartridge for perfect electrical balance or adjust your FM antenna for minimum multipath distortion
With its bi-directional taping circuits and a separate EPL circuit for an external processor, the 1300 offers unmatched flexibility. All of its line-level circuits, including its unique volume and tone controls, have the high headroom and ultra-low noise required to accommodate both today’s and tomorrow’s digital sources. The dynamic range of the 1300, relative to the 2-volt maximum output of a CD player, exceeds 110 dB. But the most important characteristic of this preamp is the simplicity and sonic purity of its  primary signal path. Yet its price is surprisingly low in comparison with other preamps that don’t soundas good and give you less control.

While its rated power for continuous test tones is 50 watts channel, it’s effective power output for music is an impressive 200 to 330 watts per channel (depending on speaker impedance). Thanks to NAD’s unique Power Envelope circuitry, this high level of tone-burst power is available not just for brief transients but for the full duration of complex chords and musical climaxes.
Yet the 2100 has the same modest size and low price as other “50 watt” amplifiers with 40,000 μ F of power-supply capacitance, the 2100 delivers peak currents as high as 30 amperes to cope with the most complex and reactive loudspeaker impedances. In addition to power and control, the 2100 has delicacy; with a signal-to-noise ratio of 117 dB, it faithfully reproduces every subtle strand of low-level musical detail and back-ground ambience. With its high-speed output stage and ultra-low distortion, the clarity of its sound must he heard to he appreciated.

You can use either wide-hand inputs or filtered inputs 112Hz to 80kHz that strip off interference, prevent intermodulation distortion, and protect your speakers from unwanted subsonic signals The filtered inputs also have input- level controls that match your preamp’s output, balance levels in biamped or surround systems and allow you to bypass your preamp and connect a line level source directly to the power amp. Heavy-duty binding-post terminals provide secure low-resistance connections for all types of speaker wire.
If you need more power, a rear-panel switch combines the amplifier’s two channels to form a mono amp rated at 100 watts continuous and 500 watts tone-burst output. The efficiency and compact size of the 2100 also make it a perfect choice for hi-amplifying speakers. (Suggestion for a high-definition audiophile system: instead of buying exotic and expensive speaker cables to stretch across the room, install a bridged or bi-amped 2100 directly behind each speaker, connected with ultra-short wires.
