Applying the Transistor in a Stereophonic Tape System

Document Thumbnail

A complete semiconductor, stereophonic tape playback system applies modern solid state devices to a new concept of music appreciation that is receiving more interest every day. This system consists of a stereophonic tape deck, two tape preamplifiers, two 10 watt amplifiers, two 16- speaker systems and a common power supply. Transistors offer many advantages in high fidelity circuits, since there is no problem with microphonics or hum pick-up from filaments as we have with tubes. Transistors are inherently low impedance devices and thus offer better matching to magnetic pick-ups and loudspeakers, for more efficient power transfer.
