Other Notes: "Inside a moulded light-proof housing the shaft of the tuning knob, running in ball races, carries a shutter disc with 60 slots. These pass between an LED light source and a pair of infra red sensors (two are needed because the system needs to know which way you have spun the knob as well as how far) and each pass initiates a 25kHz change of frequency so that a complete revolution on the FM band alters the tuning by 1.5MHz, comparable to a mechanical design. The shaft also carries a 60-tooth cog aligned with the slots and there is a closely adjacent magnet so that although the flywheel action is not impeded it is possible to feel each tuning step when rotated slowly. When this takes place and indeed when any change of operation is initiated in this tuner the output is temporarily reduced by 15dB so that one can listen through the operation without undue disturbance even if the optional full muting is disabled." - HiFi Engine
