The Bel Canto FM1 uses a patented analog FM receiver architecture to deliver superior RF performance and interference rejection through the use of digital IF processing. The FM1 includes advanced seek algorithms, adjustable soft mute, auto-calibrated digital tuning, and FM stereo processing.
The FM1 utilizes digital processing to achieve high fidelity and optimal performance, providing excellent pilot rejection, selectivity, and unmatched audio performance. This DSP approach also ensures zero drift and optimum performance for the life of the product. The advanced digital IF section operates at 24 bit 48 Ks/s data rate. This digital output can be interfaced to a Bel Canto DAC product for D/A conversion or is converted to analog using the internal High Dynamic Range Bel Canto DAC architecture. The FM1 uses Bel Canto’s Ultra-Clock low jitter clock and 122dB dynamic range DAC to deliver superb analog output performance.
The FM1 also incorporates a digital processor for the European Radio Data System (RDS) and the North American Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS). Using this feature, the FM1 enables broadcast data such as station identification and song name to be displayed on the 8 digit alphanumeric display. The FM1 provides unprecedented functionality and performance in a compact easy to use package and is a perfect complement to a complete Bel Canto DAC or Preamp based system.
