Your ADCOM GTP~400 incorporates some of the most advanced thinking in linear-gain. very-fast semiconduc-
tor design. Its superior perturrnance is the result of a thorough re-evatua‘tion of all factors affecting analog
audio performance in he Digital Age; factors such as headroom, dynamic range, input-output linearity and

E and AMI. It does not matter which wire goes to which of the two screws. By swinging the ferrite loop out
and away from the rear panel of the GTP-400, you can “orient" the antenna for best reception of desired
stations with minimum noise. In some very noisy locations. it may be necessary for best reception to remove
the antenna from its bracket and position it away inom the chassis oi the GTP-400. The length at the wires
