    The Beomaster 5000 was a FM only tuner from the late sixties. I believe the BBC used them as a reference tuner and Adam aka Beobloke from this very forum also has one.

    I am sorry, sometimes a bit obsessive about stuff, especially the Dynalab.

    My main speakers are Kef 105/3s .... I would never let them go !!!!!

    I also advise you not to let the 105/4's go either...... you will live to regret it

    I know..... been there, done that...... and lived in regret.


    For two hoots, I would buy your 105/4s but just don't have the room...KEEP EM!!!!!

    Cheers Peter . Everyone says keep em .
    Just seems a shame to have them sit there redundant.

    Sadly everyone will chip in with their fave, but not having heard all the options can't really offer more than that.

    I took it upon myself a number of years back to see if the Tuner Information Centre (http://www.fmtunerinfo.com/) results applied to the UK, and for the most part they did. I wasn't prepared to pay the crazy money for the top ones but got close and the Audiolab 8000T was one I did get.

    Their results are here http://www.fmtunerinfo.com/shootouts.html

    They rank the Audiolab as 6th behind these :'C- Accuphase T-109V - Very natural sound, good bass. Pinpoint imaging. Lifelike, three-dimensional sound, smooth extended highs.
    1 (TIE): -C- Kenwood L-02T - Most natural sound, good bass. Pinpoint imaging. Lifelike, three-dimensional sound.
    1 (TIE): -C- Burmester 978 - Natural, open and airy sound, good bass. Pinpoint imaging. Lifelike, three-dimensional sound with nice extended highs.
    4: -C- Sansui TU-919 - The prince who could be king.
    5: -C- Sansui TU-X1 - Very good sound top to bottom. Big soundstage, three-dimensional. Very slight diffuse sound.'

    I personally would not rate the Audiolab before the Revox B760 and I think for the very small amount these sell for the Kenwood 5020 or 7020 are really the bargains out there. Boring and plain, but stunning.

    While I haven't heard all the tuners on that list I have heard enough to feel the rankings are probably a very good guide. Frankly the top 5 usually sell for around 800 to over 1500 depending on where you see them Ebay Germany often has examples.

    You will need a very good aerial to unlock what any of these tuners can do.

    The 8000T I have has a some what scuffed top and the LED display is dim on one side, but it does work well. I could maybe be persuaded to sell it. I have the box and I think the instructions. The Kenwoods, nope over my cold dead body.
    Regards Neil

    Thanks for that info . I have the Kenwood 5020 but imo the Yamaha t700 outshines it .

    Fair enough. Not heard the Yamaha, so can offer no comment. The Kenwood however in my set ups bests the other 25 tuners I have including the Leak Troughline + Tim De stereo decoder.

    The best tuner I've heard by a country mile, and the Aiwa AT-9700 that preceded it was no slouch!

    Mine came from the BBC. It was used in Broadcasting House to monitor the quality of transmissions.
