Arcam Alpha Tuner


The Arcam Alpha stereo tuner has been designed to provide a combination of high quality sound reception and sophisticated styling.

The tuner has three wavebands - FM, MW and LW. For FM reception there is an AFC switch to lock to a station and a mono switch to improve the quality of reception on weak FM stations.

An on tune indicator is provided for FM stations and a stereo beacon indicates when a stereo broadcast is being received.

The output of the Arcam Alpha tuner is suitable for all stereo amplifiers - particularly the matching Arcam Alpha stereo amplifier.
