NAT05 XS Tuner


The superb quality of broadcast material came as an unexpected delight when we began serious investigations into the FM medium in the early eighties. The NAT05 XS continues the Naim tradition of producing the best sounding tuners in the world and is based on technology developed and refined by us over 25 years. It is fully remote controlled and has multiple presets for all your favourite stations. Clear and articulate with minimal noise, when correctly installed with a suitable aerial the NAT05 XS makes music like only a Naim tuner can.

FM remains the medium for the highest quality radio transmissions and the NAT05 XS is optimised to exploit FM like no other tuner. And if you want more, the NAT05 XS can be enhanced further through the simple addition of an external FlatCap XS power supply.













Cayin SP105i FM radio

There are quite a few nostalgic radios on the market today. This one is basically different. It’s not that kind of superficial retro design filled with nowadays-common highly integrated stuff. It still keeps the promise made by the solid old-fashioned case with intense use of aluminium and wood veneer. It’s really powered by valves and sounds great like yesterday’s golden tunes. It has high power (10 Watts!) and a big 12,5 cm driver, which sounds rich and controlled, supported by the big and stiff cabinet. It even has a headphone connector for quiet listening.

And there’s a lot to listen to: FM, AM, SW 1 and SW 2. So there is no limit for shortwave DXing. It’s really a kind of world radio which can also be connected to your Hi-Fi system by using the integrated RCA line output.

 






Destiny 2
RDS FM/AM Tuner

One of Creek Audio's great strengths through the last 28 years has been its ability to produce exceptionally good tuners. With today's even more crowded airwaves, coupled with the ever-increasing methods of accessing radio broadcasts, such as DAB, HD and internet, you may ask yourself why purchase a dedicated analogue only tuner? The answer is quite simple - it is the only way to bring radio broadcasts magnificently to life. Tune-in to your favourite station in FM and you are instantly aware of the exceptional quality available. Listening can be addictive and the idea that radio is purely a source of background music carries no weight. Creek tuners are functional, versatile, high tech, but yet simple to use.

The Destiny 2 Tuner uses a rotary tuning knob to control the tuning and pre-set station selection in an analogue way. To simplify its functionality, Creek's engineers have minimised the number of local functions. These include Standby on-off, Tuning, Pre-sets, AM/FM selection, Auto Scan tuning and Memory store. All these plus Mono, Stereo, Display Brightness and direct pre-set station number entry are also available via a Creek SRC3 system remote control that also serves the Destiny 2 amplifier and CD player. The Destiny 2 Tuner also has the ability to display the name and frequency of the received station using RDS (Radio Data System) on its green vacuum fluorescent display.

Evolution 2
RDS FM/AM Tuner

One of the great strengths of Creek Audio through the years has been the ability to produce exceptional tuners. The Evolution 2 AM/FM Tuner carries on that tradition. Styled to complement the Evolution 2 range of integrated amplifier and CD player, and released in 2006, this tuner is the perfect match.

With today’s airwaves seemingly becoming even more crowded, coupled with the ever-increasing methods of accessing radio broadcasts, why would you purchase a dedicated tuner? The answer is quite simple – it is the only way to bring radio broadcasts magnificently to life. Separates do sound better and a stand-alone analogue tuner will provide a purer quality of sound.

Firstly, in a hi-fi context, most listening is undeniably FM, although this analogue tuner is not limited only to FM. Tune-in to your favourite station and you are instantly aware of the exceptional quality. Listening to it is addictive, and the idea that radio is purely a source of background music, carries no weight. The Evolution 2 Tuner is functional, versatile, high tech, yet simple.

The design objective for the Evolution 2 AM/FM Tuner was to develop a product that, regardless of price, could be a benchmark for both radio and audio performance. By using high quality components and sensible electronic design Creek has achieved its goal. The mixture of high technology and design simplicity has reduced the component count to a level previously thought impossible.

Whilst the majority of synthesised tuners today use buttons to tune-in stations and select pre-set station memory, the Evolution 2 RDS AM/FM Tuner uses a rotary tuning knob connected to a digital encoder to provide tuning and pre-set station selection in a way that makes this digital tuner operate and feel like an analogue tuner. To simplify its functionality, Creek’s engineers have reduced the number of local functions to a minimum, while maintaining all the necessary functionality. Front panel controlled functions include Rotary Tuning Mode, Rotary Pre-set Mode, Band Switching - AM/FM, Auto Scan tuning and Memory store. These, plus Mono, Stereo, Display Brightness and direct pre-set station number entry are also available via the SRC3 system remote control, that also serves the Evolution 2 amplifier and CD player. The Evolution 2 RDS AM/FM Tuner also has the ability to display the name and frequency of the station tuned using RDS (Radio Data System) on its blue vacuum fluorescent display.

Unison Research UNICO R: AM/FM valve tuner

The UNICO R is the first tuner designed and produced in the Unison Research laboratories. The ranges of reception are AM / FM RIDS.

As the UNICO CD, also the UNICO R uses a graphic display in which words and images are lightened by 8192 pixels, back-lit with automatic brightness adjustment which adapts to the ambient lighting to provide ease of reading at all light levels. Such a display allows the names of the radio stations tuned to be viewed, as well as those names of FM memorised

The high frequency stage uses ALPS components.

Preamplification stages are composed of two triodes, one for each channel, ECC82 type. The output signal are both balanced and unbalanced, at low impedance.
