FM stereo tuner developed aiming at driving below into a marginal level undetectable with a lug jamming, noise, distortion, etc. which are mixed in the middle of transmission.

In the front end part, the dynamic range has acquired the widely excellent characteristic with the combination of the precision variable condenser only for frequency straight line Joint 4 FM, the high frequency magnification stage using the dual gate MOS FET, a mixed circuit, and a high stability local oscillating circuit with a buffer.

In the intermediate frequency circuit, in order to solve contiguity disturbance, the variable selection degree type is adopted, and in order distortion few, it is the combination of the newly developed ten-step LC concentration type phase straight line band pass filter and a high selection degree piezo trembler filter.
When only a straight line phase filter works and there is contiguity disturbance usually, by changing a Selectivity switch to Narrow, a piezo trembler filter is added, it becomes the high selection degree characteristic, jamming is removed, and clear reception can be performed.

The 1200kHz broadband discriminator with 3 times [ usual ] as many zones is adopted as a detection circuit.

In the stereo recovery part, the coil and no capacitor were used but the phase lock loop recovery circuit which synchronizes automatically the phase of a pilot signal and the phase of a subcarrier oscillator which are sent from a broadcasting station is adopted.

The multipass meter which became independent besides a signal strength meter and center tuning meter is carried.
The best direction of an antenna can be easily found out in this meter.

The muting switch, the switch which receives only a stereo noise filter and FM stereophonic broadcast, etc. are carried.
The detection output circuit is also carried in preparation for four-channel broadcast.

There was a walnut cabinet as an option.
