NEC
PC 8801 FA

The Nec PC-8801FA replaced the PC-88FH.

This machine had really powerful sound functions. 6 FM channels could be separated into left and right. User could thus enjoy stereo sound through headphones or external speakers.

ADPCM could change sound's frequency dynamically. 256 KB of RAM were provided as sound memory buffer. It was larger than main memory.

N88 BASIC offered extended function for controlling these sound features, but not enough. Some of them couldn't be used with BASIC.

The PC-8801FA met a great success in japanese market.

Thanks to Nomura Hisayuki for this information
