Some of the features that set the MR 7083 apart from the ordinary are:

  • The advanced AM/FM tuner design of the MR 7083 displays the station frequencies digitally. Stations are selected easily in any one of these ways:
  • A. use the manual tuning knob, B. use the SCAN up or down touchbuttons, C. use the preset station touchbuttons or, D. use the SEARCH which will preview the preset stations for 5 seconds each.
  • The sound enhancing SPATIAL audio processor provides an aural picture that is more "stereo like" in quality and dimension. On noisy, weak FM stations or AM stations, SPATIAL provides reduced noise and retains a broad stereo-like sound.
  • High quality tape recordings of FM broadcasts can be made without the interference that stereo transmissions can cause. Carefully designed suppression circuits eliminate the potential for stereo carrier noise when making "off the air" tape recordings.
  • A unique Phase Locked Loop Multiplex decoder delivers STEREO FM with lower distortion, lower noise, and better separation.
  • The most useful and flexible AM antenna system will suit your particular installation. A low-impedance loopstick will, in most local areas, provide AM signals while rejecting noise and interference. In noisy AM locations, an external noise reducing, noise canceling, shielded loop will provide ideal input signal. In a remote location, a conventional 'long wire' antenna can be used.
  • The MR 7083 can be remote controlled from a Mclntosh IR Remote Control system.

All in all, your selection of the MR 7083 will be reinforced by your day-to-day use of this superb instrument. Good listening.
