model S304: nostalgia
Broadcast FM/AM Tuner (analog tuned DSP radio)
Front panel is illuminated through Japanese paper “washi” when powered on.
ANALOG TUNER?
In the quiet of the evening, we sometimes look forward to listen to voices
from distant, far off places. We switch on the radio, turn the dial and tune in
our favourite broadcast... We have long been familiar with the analog tuning
dial since the first crystal radio set was developed.
With the addition of a DSP (digital signal processor) chip, analog tuned
radios have been reborn with the model S304 FM/AM analog tuner.
Incredibly clear, distortion free, and top class listening have been achieved
with DSP and fully discrete buffered amplifier. The model S304 analog tuner supports both FM stereo and
AM (MW) band frequencies that can be switched from the front panel.
FEATURES
- Easy to operate. The model S304 analog tuner consists of a round analog
frequency display dial, tuning knob, FM/AM switch to select bands (overseas
model uses a different dial from above photo) and a signal indicator light
tuned (green), FM stereo (red).
- The Silicon Labs DSP chip receiver chip brings reduced interference and
superior signal reception, increased signal sensitivity and reduction of signal
drift for unmatched sound quality in an analog tuner.
- Non-switching power supply and IC regulator are used to decrease internal noise. The model S304 analog
tuner also uses a transformer and discrete regulators.
- A discrete buffer amplifier (Japanese transistors) for line output is used for incredible, warm, clear, and
rich sound.
- To increase AM(MW) band sensitivity, the ferrite bar antenna can be set on the receiver. This antenna
holder is adjustable with magnets (installed on the base of the wooden supports).
Inclined chassis makes it easy to operate
AM ferrite bar antenna can be placed on tuner
