The FM/AM tuner in which the FM section which supplied the new technology of an electronic tuning circuit, a DGL FM wave detector, etc., and the AM section of synchronous detection were carried.

While using the crystal oscillator for alignment and being able to unite with the signal of choice in ±0.002% of accuracy, most gaps by time or a temperature change cannot be found, and it locks at the point of the distorted minimum and sensitivity highest.
The abnormal-conditions distortion or noise by external vibration do not occur for electronic tuning. Moreover, the digital display of frequency has adopted the static system which noise does not generate.

The 14-game random memory is carried, seven feather touch buttons are used for a double type, and the random memory of FM of 14 games and the AM office can be carried out to a favorite button.
Moreover, it also has the rotation knob type tuning adapting the optics of the same feeling as variable condenser type tuning, and continuation tuning can also be carried out at intervals of 100kHz (AM is every 9kHz) with pip sound.

as for the front end part, an input and magnification interstage serve as double alignment, respectively, and disturbance of the Dainyuu power has improved sharply interference (RF inter-modulation) boiled and depended.

The characteristic excellent in combining especially the newly developed DGL wave detector and the selected group delay flat IF filter has been acquired.
A DGL detection system is the circuit to which its attention was paid at the delay time of the output of a high-speed logic IC,It is making a high-speed logic IC into 19-piece series, delaying 114 degrees of phase angles so that the distorted minimum and S/N may become best, and applying this delay signal and incoming signal to an exclusive OR circuit,The electric potential between two signals was chosen, the circuit was opened and closed, the degree of roughness and fineness of the signal wave produced by abnormal conditions was detected in digital one (logical multiplication), and the audio signal is taken out. The linear region of a delay circuit is as large as ±5MHz, and since a-less equalization circuit moreover, the differentiation profit straight line characteristic of it having been stable and having excelled is acquired.
moreover, IF filter (Normal) 2 sets of (Narrow) are used, and when interference is intense, reception of selection degree importance is possible by changing to Narrow.

State-of-the-art technology is accumulated on FM stereo recovery circuit, and the outstanding characteristic has been acquired.

AM broadcast reception was also thought as important and distortion has adopted the synchronous detection which was excellent in interference removal capability few.
By making the same as that of an input subcarrier local oscillation frequency poured into a mixed vessel, a synchronous system takes out an audio signal at once, and the degree of selection is decided by the characteristic of a low-pass filter prepared in the audio circuit, and serves as an outstanding system with little detection distortion.
Furthermore, a disturbance wave can judge the low higher than receiving station frequency and frequency side, and the synchronous detection can choose Sideband. For this reason, a sky wave demonstrates power also in the area which worries about interference of the night which becomes strong, or an overseas office.
Since it added to the standard broadband super system in T-106, synchronous detection is adopted and the frequency response has given the emphasis characteristic united with the sound equalizing (pre-emphasis) characteristic of NHK,Pre-emphasis broadcast is receivable with a good frequency response.
Moreover, the beat of the adjoining office is removed with a 9kHz filter.

The state of an input electric wave can be known with the peak degree-of-modulation meter which displays the signal meter in which signal strength is shown, and a degree of modulation to 200%.
Moreover, the degree-of-modulation meter can know the direction of the antenna which serves as a multipass meter and becomes the distorted minimum by switch change.

The selectivity switch used when there are much the noise filter and interference which reduce the noise of the weak stereo office of an electric wave as an attached function,The level control which unites a level with the volume of the muting switch from which the noise between offices is removed, the side band selector which chooses AM side band at the time of interference, and other program sauce is carried.

The natural rosewood cabinet currently used for the photograph was an option.
Moreover, there is T-106B of a black model.
