Marco,

The front end in the Phase Linear 5000 was made by Alps and was also used by a number of other manufacturer's.
A.P. Van Meter designed the 500 tuner. A.P. also worked for McIntosh and University Sound before he worked at Phase Linear.

I am not an expert on tuners yet, so I can't answer your question about the "hi blend filter".

Thank you Ed .
I didn't know that in the 70s Alps was also an RF supplier .
After they used the Alpine brand for car radios .
Ciao
