The Creek AMBIT FM/AM Tuner module is suitable for adding to the Evolution 50A or the Evolution 100A amplifier, upgrading the amplifier into a receiver by adding radio functionality to the unit. Its plug and play nature also allows it to update the amp's software to the latest revision automatically. Once the tuner is installed and the amp is swithced on, the display will show the amp having an extra input - a tuner input, in fact. However, it will look to the user like a stand alone tuner in the OLED dispaly window.
Once installed, the four left hand buttons on the front panel, together with the left hand control knob and or remote control handset, will offer all the radio function controls.
The AMBIT tuner receives the entire FM and AM frequency band and digitises it with two high quality ADCs. It then manages the signal using a Digital Signal processor and even separates the left and right channel information in FM. After this, using its own high quality DAC, it returns the digital signal to Audio, to be amplified by the EVOLUTION 50A.
The result is simply brilliant. FM signals have textbook operation, with none of the usual problems associated with analogue tuner performance. RDS stations will show their name and other information. AM performance is excellent also and can provide excellent performance just from the loop antenna provided, if there is a good indoor signal.
FM radio performance is limited only by the quality of the signal and of course the antenna used. Choose an external antenna for the best results. Listen to your favourite stations like you have never heard them before.
