QUAD 99 FM Tuner
(For use with QUAD 99 Pre-Amp only
In many countries FM radio still has the potential to provide the highest fidelity programme quality. The QUAD 99 FM Tuner has been designed to make the best use of that potential. The UK has gained a worldwide reputation for the high quality music broadcasts transmitted by the BBC, and as a result, manufacturers such as Quad have considerable experience in designing tuners that receive and reproduce music realistically. The QUAD 99 FM Tuner incorporates that experience in full.
The QUAD 99 FM Tuner and integrated QUAD 99 CD Player are both connected to the rest of the system via our 'QUAD Link' bus system, which combines complete system control with balanced line audio transmission. Not only does this make the entire system remarkably easy to control, but provides the cleanest audio signal possible.
Use the QUADlink cable to connect the QUAD 99 FM Tuner to the rest of the QUAD 99 system.
There are two FM 75ohm co-axial sockets on the rear panel for aerial or cable signals. It is a truism that the performance of your aerial is the performance of your tuner. For best results, you should use a professionally installed multi-element FM aerial mounted on the roof, or at least in the loft space. If you are very close to a transmitter, you may be able to get acceptable results from an indoor aerial, but reception could be noisy and distorted, particularly in stereo. If you plug a normal aerial into the cable input, you will lose much of your signal strength.
The cable input is so described because cable and satellite operators often offer FM radio channels. Its input sensitivity is specially tailored to accept signal levels from such service providers. Plugging a cable feed into the FM 99 aerial input may cause input overload and consequent distortion.
