    had quite a few tuners , I rather like the denon tu 260L which is super cheap s/h

    better by far is my bel canto FM1 which has a separate psu and gives very holographic sound in good reception

    Really? I'm envious.
    Local FM broadcasts "here" are too shite to tolerate. 'Personalities' and repetitive dross dominates. Silence is preferable.
    I can get better tunes out of my TV service's 'radio' feeds
    Radio in my part of the world seems as dead as 8 tracks .
    0oops... just saw that some nutters are trying to revive that though.
    Must have $$ in that race.
    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.

    I'm on my second Scott 350B decked out with a very nice set of valves.

    Murders the Sansui TU-9900 I had for tone. That's where it wins as technically the Sansui murders the Scott.

    That Sansui had the best FM sensitivity I have come across. But it is useless, really. Being able to pick up weak signals isn't useful as you don't want to listen to it in a hi-fi system. Whistle. Chirp.

    I also think that a proper aerial is a complete waste of money in decent reception areas.

    So basically the Scott is really quite coloured but in a very good way. The Sansui clinical and sterile. I'll take the former.

    I expect this is why people like Leak Troughlines. Never heard one so just guessing.

    I have owned a few other tuners. The 1963 Scott is the best on the ears but the tech performance isn't good.

    Interesting, my guess would be that a tuner is totally reliant on its antenna, I would have thought the better that is, then the better the tuner gets,
    and that has been my experience.

    I have one of these and it's an absolute delight in every way.
    It opened my mind to Japanese hi-fi, which I'm sorry to say I had previously been rather sniffy about.
