Ampex Concerto 5200


The Concerto 5200 consists of the Stereo Centre, Phono Player, Amplifier and Speaker System.

The Ampex Stereo Center provides a convenient grouping, on a single panel, of all the controls necessary to maximum stereo listening enjoyment from any source.

If a monophonic (single channel) signal is selected, the Stereo-Single button is depressed so that each of the amplifier speaker systems receives an identical input, and the resulting reproduced sound appears to come from a point midway between the two speakers.

When stereo (dual channel) signals are selected, the Stereo-Single button is out and each of the incoming signals is amplified independently in parallel circuits. The resulting reproduced sound, depending of course upon the nature of the Stereo signals, will appear to originate not between the speakers but beyond them, from the same apparent source and direction heard by the recording microphones.

The Stereo Center is provided with separate controls for bass and treble response, enabling you to make individual adjustments as required.

A separate loudness control is provided for each channel, enabling you to make individual adjustment as desired to compensate for room acoustics or variations in recordings.

The tuner section incorporates two completely independent but carefully matched radio tuners, designed not only for optimum FM/ AM stereo reception but also containing provision for the later addition of a multiplex adapter unit for FM/AM stereo.
