More signal, less noise

The FM Edge uses Terk's Dual Drive Amplifier circuitry, which minimizes noise in the FM signal with a 2-stage filter/amplifier. The amplification range is 0 to +36 dB, adjustable with a handy thumb wheel.

Reception sensitivity is enhanced with the newly developed Advanced Capture Circuitry, which helps lock onto signals in crowded areas, and also to improve reception for lower-powered signals.

The FM Edge's sleek good looks make it a stylish alternative to the clunky T-wire dipole antennas included with most receivers.

Product Research

Features

Overview: This antenna is a convenient, stylish replacement for a normal FM dipole antenna supplied with most receivers. As with any indoor antenna, it will not function as well as and is not recommended for use as an outdoor FM antenna.

Dual-Drive Amplifier (DDA) Circuitry: Captures radio signals and minimizes noise in an FM signal with a two-stage amplifier before boosting broadcast frequencies for less noise.

Advanced Capture Circuitry (ACC): Enhances reception sensitivity which helps lock onto signals in crowded areas. It also helps improve reception of lower powered signals.

Controls: The only control is a black thumb wheel that is used to adjust FM amplification (from 0 to +29dB amplification).  There is a red LED on the bottom front portion of the unit which glows more brightly as amplification is increased.

Connections

  • "F"-Type: The antenna is fitted with an attached 6' antenna cable terminated by a push-on "F"-type connector.
  • Bare Wire Adapter: The antenna also comes with a 75-ohm "F"-type to 75-ohm bare-wire adapter,
  • AC Power: The AC adapter can either be left plugged in (constant power will not hurt the unit and there is little electrical consumption), or it can be powered to a receiver's switched AC output, if available.

Specifications

  • Frequency Range: FM 88-108MHz
  • Reception Pattern: Omni-directional, 360°
  • FM Amplifier Gain Range: 0 to +29 dB
  • FM Output Impedance: 75-ohms (adaptable to 300 ohms with included adapter).

Q
I have a Topaz SR20 stereo receiver that .... within the specs ... calls for an outdoor antenna. However, don't see Crutchfield offering an antenna of this type for purchase?

I bought this item from Crutchfield a while back. I had one station I liked but my Sangean HD radio wouldnt pick it up. Bought this unit and found if I placed it in my living room window it comes in great. Then I bought a car version for my boat. That one worked great also.

To the best of my knowledge, Crutchfield does not offer full sized outdoor antennas. I purchased a Terk indoor antenna from them more than a year ago but found it to be wanting, especially in areas of weak FM reception. It will do fine if you have a number of stations in close proximity, however. An outdoor antenna is the best bet for good all around reception. Go on line and google "outdoor FM antennas" and you will find various vendors. Keep in mind that an outdoor antenna takes more time and effort to Install. Your receiver should be compatible with with type of antenna.

I had a similar situation and ended up purchasing the Terk FM Edge antennae from Crutchfield. It does a very nice job of picking up FM Stations from 30 - 90 miles away and allowing me to listen to them with a much cleaner signal. I for one think this is a worthwhile investment.

For most people outdoor antennas are not practical. I have used the Terk FM antenna on my Marantz receiver for a couple of years and have found that it works well. It is much better than wire antennas and offers a nice appearance. Unless you live in an area with poor reception you will find this antenna will satify your FM reception needs.

If your receiver has connections for an FM antenna it will work. Check your manual or examine the rear of your Sony receiver. I have a Marantz receiver and mine works graet!

It all depends how far away you are from the broadcast antenna. I am about 35 miles outside of Philadelphia and the Terk helps to pull in some of the weaker stations, but only marginally. Some of the local stations don't need the Terk, the cheap dipole antenna that came with your Sansui would do just fine in this situation. I'd recommend you start there before you spend money that might not be necessary on a Terk.

The ant. Input on the back of the Tivoli os a 75 ohm and the terk is a 1/8" plug, so this will not work.

I cannot say for sure, but it does a good job for my Marantz tuner, we live in a depression...

Q
Had a crappy boom for years and got radio reception. Changed to a system with a receiver in the same location and now have no reception no matter what antenna I have tried. I have only tried the antenna from local retailer with zero results. I have a nice Bose speaker system and would love to listen to the radio rather than cd's all the time. Any ideas?

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: This Terk product should do very well for you. For the most part, the reviews have been outstanding on it and should be an upgrade over a standard antenna. If you get absolutely no reception at all, it might be an issue with the antenna input on the back of your receiver. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
