PULSE COUNT DETECTOR
TUNER
Product policy
For over three decades, Kenwood has continually introduced innovations in tuner design and engineering. The
name Kenwood has thus become universally recognized for
excellence in tuner technology, and many satisfied users
will testify that for them, the tuner is Kenwood. But there's a
whole lot more to tuners than the technology, these days.
The average, non-audiophile also wants to be in on the high
quality FM and AM broadcast scene, even though the
budget is usually rather restricted. For such customers,
Kenwood has the answer. At the top of this year's line-up is
the KT-1000 incorporating the latest in tuner technology, but
packaged without the frills to attract a wider market. A bit
under in terms of features and price range comes the KT900, but still offering the superb sound quality expected of
Kenwood. Finally, there's the totally new-style KT-800, an
automatic computer-guided tuner that combines excellent
sound quality with unrivalled ease of operation. Here's a
rundown of these three great new tuners, and the sales
points and facts to help you sell them.
New Pulse Count
Detector IC
Conventional FM detection circuits using an analog method
allow a lot of chances for noise or distortion to be introduced to the original FM signals. In order to faithfully
preserve the original characteristics of the FM signals,
Kenwood has developed a new Pulse Count Detector IC,
which uses a digital method to detect the FM signals. Following is a simplified explanation of how it works.
The wave shapes of the individual FM signals are sampled
and the basic wave shape of each are converted into digital
equivalents in the form of pulses of equal width and amplitude. Since only the basic shape of the signals are con-
verted into digital equivalents, any minor deviations or ripples caused by noise or distortion are simply ignored — the
result is a digital equivalent of the pure original FM signal,
free from distortion or noise and remarkably stable against
changes in temperature, humidity and age. When converted
back into an analog signal, the signal at output is exactly the
same as originally input. Any noise or distortion that might
have affected the signal during the detection process has
been completely eliminated. This system is utilized in the
KT-1000 and KT-900.
Direct RF Conversion
When there are many powerful FM stations and other
sources competing for air space, extraneous signals are all
too easily picked up by the FM antenna and amplified,
introducing a great deal of noise and distortion. To eliminate
such interference, Kenwood has developed a Direct RF
Conversion technique. This by-passes the RF amplifier
stage, sending signals instead directly to the mixer stage,
where the intermodulation products produced by the
interference of extraneous signals are attenuated rather
than amplified. Either Direct RF Conversion or normal conversion can be selected by a switch, allowing the choice of
the method most suitable to the particular reception conditions. This system is utilized in the KT-1000.
Independent Power Supply
For Local Oscillator
One consequence of the relatively high impedance of
power supplies is that leakage from the +B line of the
power supply unit can feed back to the local oscillator to
modulate the local oscillator frequency. This causes tuning
inaccuracies by deflecting the tuned frequency above and
below its optimum level. Kenwood engineers solved this
problem by eliminating the source itself — the + B line to
the oscillator, giving the local oscillator its own independent
power supply. With two power supplies, noise due to leakage is virtually non-existent, even at 100% modulation. In
the KT-1000, this is perfectly utilized.
High Quality AM Section
In the past, AM sections of FM/AM stereo tuners have
tended to be neglected because of the generally inferior
quality of AM broadcasts. Now, Kenwood tuners are fully
able to reproduce the upgraded AM broadcast quality, with
AM sections that are as carefully designed as FM sections.
In the KT-1000 an IF band selector is provided for the AM
section.
Sample-And-Hold
MPX Circuit
As with the Pulse Count Detector, Kenwood engineers have
taken advantage of the exceptional accuracy of digital processing with the introduction of the Sample-and-Hold multiplex decoder. This circuit cleanly extracts the left and right
channel signals from the composite FM signal carried by
the 38 kHz subcarrier frequency. The wave peaks are converted into digital equivalents in the form of pulses. Since
only the basic shape of the waves are converted into digital
equivalents, transient deflections in the shape of waves
caused by noise or distortion are ignored. This greatly
reduces the need for filtering, which vastly improves channel separation, because filtering can obscure important
information in the composite signal, interfering with the ability to isolate left and right channel signals. The peak pulses
are sampled then held in a capacitor until the next peak arrives; thus, the average peak value can be instantly adjusted
for precise representation of the original 38 kHz subcarrier.
The KT-1000 employs this superior type of MPX decoder.
Quartz Synthesizer
Preset Tuning
Kenwood's quartz-PLL tuning circuit uses the ultra-stable
oscillating frequency of a quartz crystal to keep the frequency generated by the local oscillator locked to the exact
tuning frequency. The quartz-PLL circuit can be preset to
automatically tune to any one of any combination of as
many as eight different FM or AM stations. To preset, the
desired station is manually tuned in, and then the preset
button is pressed, after which any one of eight station
buttons may be pressed. Whenever that station is desired,
pressing the station button previously selected will
automatically tune the station. This system is fully utilized in
the KT-800.
