KÖRTING NECKERMANN STEREO STEUERGERÄT 821/80

Korting Neckermann Stereo Steuergerät 821/80 has an elegant line and its compact dimensions in relation with other sinto amplifier of that period make this machine easily placeable in modern and minimalistc environments.

Its the most prestigious device produced by Körting-Neckermann in those years. Körting became famous for its excellent (and expensive) TVs and then the company had been absorbed, like many other german companies, by foreign assets, in this case Slovenian to produce various electronic devices.

The use of this machine is very simple, being it intentionally not equipped of filters compensations automations or others. A few but very efficient controls: treble, bass, volume, balance and obviously the tuning changes.
In particular, the tone control (Baxandall) is extremely efficient. It is the same kind of control still used nowadays in the high fidelity amplifiers.

The balance has been obtained with a particular circuital solution, the control indeed has been placed after the output transformer. You get a balance control that can be very precisely calibrated. However, even turning the knob all on one side, the channel never reaches the Zero.

TUBESOUND ENHANCEMENT

- Separate loudspeakers - Using separate loudspeakers is an important option for stereo receivers. This allows you to couple the receiver to speakers best suited to particular space, design or acoustic performance requirements. The most suitable loudspeakers are analysed later, under loudspeakers.

- Stereo Decoder - The device has an integrated Stereo Decoder. This allows you to listen to stations that use this transmissions system in stereo. Many stereo receivers are not equipped with a Multiplexer so they work in stereo only when you select the record player’s /Recorder/Aux input . Such receivers, in listening to the radio, send the same signal to both channels, so listening is monaural. This is not the case with the Concertino 2380, which is totally beyond stereo.

- Built-in Bluetooth receiver - This unit can be equipped with a BLUETOOTH receiver powered directly from the device. That makes it possible to use the amplifier from any digital device, IPAD, Smartphone, or sophisticated multimedia station. You can listen to your wireless Web Stations or favorite music around the room. On request, we can also mount a Wireless Receiver.

- Multi Platform connections - Along with the device, we can also provides you an impedance adapter cable to connect any digital source, such as iphone, smartphone, computer, CD player, etc. This purpose-built cable adapts different impedances of modern digital equipment. Also the two stereo channels are collected into a single flow without increasing the load input unit.

AERIALS

Inside the Cabinet there is a dipole to receive FM bands and Shortwaves.

A ferrite antenna is for long and medium waves reception.

Using the internal antennas, the sensitivity is very good. Of course, under some conditions, using an external antenna further increases the receiver’s sensitivity.

SEPARATED TUNING CONTROL BETWEEN AM AND FM

The tuning system is interesting and different than other devices made in Germany. The device is equipped with separate tuning mechanisms for AM and FM bands.
There are two tuning knobs, separate but coaxial, with cable and pulley systems separated depending on the band.
This type of tuning has a very strong mechanics. Regarding maintenance, cleaning and lubricating once every 10 to 15 years is sufficient.
