Fanfare FT-1A FM Tuner S/N 2189
An All- American Classic!
This piece has a few small dings on the face not bad but the top plate is scratched and best to either not worry or splay it with black spray paint. Price reflects condition ( see pictures).
Please no low offers considered.
Stereophile Class A component.
Retail price is $1,695.00.
Sound quality is great (cd quality on the balanced outputs).
From the Stereophile review, which is on the Fanfare web site as a pdf: “Like the FT-1, the Fanfare FT-1A is an analog-tuned FM stereo receiver with digital frequency display and a choice of wide or narrow IF bandwidths. Tuning is carried out using the digital counter in 50kHz increments. The tuner's infrared remote control mirrors all front-panel functions. It has eight presets with UNISET programming control. The rated sensitivity remains excellent, requiring l5dBf in mono and 32dBf in stereo for 50dBf quieting. Selectivity is rated at a very respectable 75dB alternative channel, 25dB adjacent channel (Narrow mode). The capture ratio remains 1.5dB. The FT-1A also has balanced outputs, an option seen only on expensive audiophile tuners such as the Magnum Dynalab MD-202 and MD-208. The Fanfare has two unbalanced (RCA) output options, including two marked "HI" for line level audio output, and two marked "LO" which provide an unamplified, low- impedance audio signal direct from the tuner's multiplex filters.”
In conclusion, the review states: “…the FT-1A an outstanding value in audiophile- grade FM stereo tuners. Best of all, the FT-1A gave up none of the FT-1's strengths, including excellent sensitivity, good quieting, and thoroughly musical sound. And it handled multipath as gracefully as did the Day Sequerra FM Reference.”
