The FM/AM tuner which thought the basic performance as important.

While adopting the dual gate MOS FET as a front end part, the selectivity of the RF stage is raised and the distortion property is raised with the falloff of the inter-modulation stonewalling at the time of a strong input.

Rather than before, using three two-element ceramics filters with a still more sufficient phase response, high integration IC (HA11211) is used for the IF section, and the distortion property and the selectivity property are raised in it.

The low distortion is realized by adopting as a multi-circuitry PLL(phase lock troop) IC which concentrated and developed IC technology of the Hitachi.

In order that the radio wave of two broadcast stations which approached, and a stereo control may prevent distortion from occurring, the anti birdie filter is carried.

The loop antenna only for AM is carried.

What has a band larger than before is adopted as the ceramics filter of AM tuner part, and sound which has an elongation to a high region is realized to it.
Moreover, a 9kHz traps coil is adopted and the stonewalling of an adjacency office is eliminated.

The mode muting switch which summarized the mode switching and the muting functionality to one is carried.

The termination for FM75ohm coaxial cables is carried.
