    Wow !! And I'm glad you mentioned the Leak as everyone seems to like them but I'd read that they need very good reception.
    My Yamaha is nothing special at all but it really is good compared to others I've had and it was only 15 .
    I can't quite get my head around that tuners can cost over 500 mark given what's inside them compared to an amp or CD player or even speakers.
    Cheers mate

    Thanks for the link Adam, not seen that before.

    Mine came From the BBC and was used for the exact some purpose, an ex BBC engineer friend of mine from Wokingham serviced it and then gave it to me, very nice tuner.

    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.

    Thing is all tuners need a good signal. I use a 6 element Yagi and a Magnum Dynalab signal sleuth. I now live much further away from the broadcast mast than I used to so the DSS was a useful addition.

    Not heard many of the big American tuners but those MD tuners I had heard I was underwhelmed by. My view was that Audio Freaks had pumped the price up way too much and as such many vintage units offer better value for less. I was also underwhelmed by the Accuphase 101 ... pretty meh moment, sadly an expensive.... meh moment.

    Before I started gathering up tuners I thought the Troughline the best I had, and it was, then it no longer was.

    Thing is its easy to bang the drum for a cherished favourite until you compare it to whats out there, then you come to the realisation that it was really a rather knackered drum, with a torn skin.
    Regards Neil
