Cambridge Audio T55


The T55 Tuner is the first in a range of tuners to be introduced by Cambridge Audio. The engineering design incorporates some of the most advanced electronic techniques available, resulting in an instrument whose performance is exemplified by its superb specification.

Although intended as a counterpart to the acclaimed Cambridge Audio amplifiers, the T55 is suitable for use in any high quality audio system.

The RF mixer stages utilise MOS transistors with voltage controlled varactor tuning, allowing a remote tuning facility to be incorporated. The IF stages use two high quality ceramic filters plus discrete and integrated circuit amplification. The discriminator is of the quadrature detector type with a double tuned coil, resulting in an exceptionally low distortion figure.

Stereo decoding is by means of a phase locked loop integrated circuit which also achieves a low level of harmonic
distortion together with a high degree of spurious response rejection, which is further aided by the addition of extra filters to remove the residual 19 kHz pilot tone and its harmonics. A total of three stabilized power supplies are used.
