What else to know about the McIntosh MR 71?

"The Mclntosh MR 71 is a precision engineered, highly sensitive FM Multiplex Tuner. The research staff of Mclntosh Laboratory has developed five new tuner circuit improvements for the MR 71.
  1. 1. Automatic stereo-mono switching that is "clickless" and completely electronic. (Patent applied for.)
  2. 2. Multipath indicator to eliminate multi- path reception by showing when your anten- na is rotated to the correct position for mini- mum multipath distortion.
  3. 3. Double tuned input circuits before the first R.F. amplifier to reduce spurious re- sponses.
  4. 4. New D'Arsonval movement meters of increased sensitivity which do not need zero setting adjustments.
  5. 5. A new computer designed filter to re- duce noise from stations broadcasting sub- carrier auxiliary music services. No other tuner uses such a filter.

The finest possible reception of FM mono- phonic and FM multiplex stereophonic broad- casts is assured by the Mclntosh MR 71 tuner. Once you have enjoyed the outstanding performance of the MR 71, you will under- stand why McIntosh products have earned their reputation as "THE BEST. Your Mc-Intosh MR 71 tuner will give you years of the finest possible FM reception, and will be a valued part of your home music system." - McIntosh
