Phase Linear Tuners  
Phase Linear 5000 Series Tuners

Phase Linear 5000 Series Two FM Tuner

The Phase Linear 5000 FM Tuner was introduced in 1976. It was designed by A.P. Van Meter. It featured two meters, one for signal strength and the other for stereo tuning. It was designed on the same scale as the amplifiers. Phase Linear sold fewer 5000 Tuners than its amplifiers and pre-amplifiers, which is one reason the component is so rarely seen today.

When introduced, the Phase Linear 5000 had a list price just under $500. It manufactured through 1977, but Phase Linear was working on its replacement, the 5000 Series Two.

The 5000 Series Two was introduced in 1978. It shared the same look as the other Series Two components in the Phase Linear Line. It had a list price of $549.95. It was offered again for 1979 but was replaced later that year by the 5100 Series Two.

Phase Linear 5100 Tuner Series Two 

The 5100 Series Two Tuner reflected improved circuit design and components for even better specifications. It was a lower profile design and reflected the input of Phase Linear's new owner, Pioneer Electronics Corporation. Price of the 5100 Series Two was $449.95. The 5100 was built by Pioneer in Japan.


Phase Linear T5200 Tuner

The T5200 was introduced in 1982 and sold through 1983. Pioneer had sold Phase Linear to International Jensen in 1982 and manufacturing was moved to Texas after the Lynnwood, Washington plant was closed in December of 1982. Jensen wasted no time revamping the Phase Linear line, even changing the familiar script logo to something more in keeping with the 1980s.

The T5200 was one of the first products to be built at Jensen's plant in Texas. However, there were production units that still have the Lynnwood, Washington location on the back panels. The tuner specifications were even better than previous tuners in the 5000 series. List price was $450.00.

However, Jensen's future marketing plans did not include audiophile quality components for the home.  The decision was made to move into high end automotive audio, and the  stereo component line was discontinued after 1983.
