What else to know about the T-100?A superior tuner can significantly enrich audio life today for there is an abundance of broadcast reproduction matter which provides great opportunities to expand one’s tape library through careful air checking. The ideal tuner should come close to connecting gate broadcast studio to the amplifier, and eliminate the medium of radio waves. Thus, it should be able to cut the nose, interference and distortion that is picked up with the radio waves during its transmission, to a level which cannot be detected by ear. This is where the main emphasis in design the Accuphase T-100 Tuner. IN addition, special attention was paid to performance stability against external variables such as incoming signal level, changes of temperature, amidst and time, as well as on smooth-working tuning and switching mechanisms. In short, the most advanced electronic and mechanical techniques were called upon to develop this outstanding tuner.
Brief History of Accuphase
Kensonic Laboratory, Inc. had originally been releasing its products under the brand name Accuphase, but on the occasion of its 10th anniversary the company was renamed to Accuphase Laboratory, Inc., thereby unifying the brand and company name. The word Accuphase was adapted by taking the prefix ACCU from the word "accurate" and combining it with PHASE which is an important factor that relates to the innermost essence of audio technology. The unusual and somewhat difficult to pronounce name was a complete unknown in the beginning, and the company was often thought to be foreign rather than Japanese. In June 1973, one year after its formation, Accuphase moved to newly built premises in the Aoba district of Yokohama where the company is still located today. In August of the same year, the long awaited first models went into production: the separate power amplifier/preamplifier combo P-300 and C-200, soon followed by the AM/FM tuner T-100.
