Model NV-T3

3-in-1AM/ FM Tuner

Introduction

Imagine the capability to enjoy AM news in the den … soft rock FM in the kitchen … and a smooth jazz FM station in the bedroom … all at the same time and without having to purchase three separate tuners. With the introduction of theNUVO™3-IN-1AM/FM tuner, this dream is now a reality.

The NUVO™3-in-1provides three independent AM/FM tuners in one convenient and affordable package. Using the handy NUVO™ RC1 remote, you can easily control the3-in-1from anywhere in your home. With separate IR (infrared) codes for each tuner, it’s simple to choose preset stations, adjust volume levels, switch from AM to FM, mute a specific tuner, and more - all with one NUVO™ remote control. There’s no need for multiple remotes!

The NUVO™3-in-1Tuner can be used with most any audio system. But when combined with a NUVO™ or Kustommulti-source,multi-zonesystem, you get complete control, convenience, and flexibility.That’s the magic of NUVO™.
