JVC 5100


This is JVC's compact, all new 100 watt Add Amplifier - a brilliant component which added to your present 2 channel system adds up to the best news yet in 4 channel stereo.

Simply incorporate the 5100 and another pair of speaker systems to your present set up, and the grand total is 4 channel stereo anyway you figure it, anyway you choose to hear it.

You'll be instantly prepared for discrete 4 channel recorded tapes, discrete 4 channel discs based on JVC's CD-4 system, and even 4 channel FM broadcasts when they become a reality.

But you needn't wait until those program sources become abundantly available, because the 5100 incorporates JVC's unique SFCS (Sound Field Composer System) to magically transform your present 2 channel tapes and records and ordinary FM stereo broadcasts to thrilling 4 channel sound.

And it also is complete with JVC's world famous SEA (Sound Effect Amplifier) tone control system for the two additional channels, so that when added to any conventional JVC amplifier with built in SEA, the result is total control over the tonal quality of reproduced sound in all four channels.
