    I wonder how the bass units perform without the TL loading.

    Hard to say, but I'd think the drivers would have strong magnets to help damp the line resonance. Could be overdamped in a sealed box.

    Nice to have the set.

    Just got back into radio myself. I didn't get on with my Rotel tuner I'd had for years, so never used it. Treated myself to a cheapo Marantz ST-385L AM/FM/LW unit that does the job just fine, I like the station pre-sets. Cost me a whopping 18.95 including delivery!

    Cheap as chips to add to the set lovely looking thing - Love a good tuner here too they are the cheapest thing in HI FI to buy at the moment still have the greats Quad FM 3 , 4 , Denon 260L , Sony ST 88 and Aiwa R30 -

    Should be here in a couple of days I'll rig it up interesting to compare it to other tuners was 200+ when released the 504 not much online and not many know the mod either

    Another (modest) tuner collector here; most of which have been bought off eBay:

    Quad AM1
    Quad AM3
    Quad FM2
    Quad FM3
    Quad FM4

    Leak 'Troughline' Stereo
    B&O 1700
    Cambridge T55.

    Yet I only listen to two or three stations.

    A bit of a drift from the Ebay Bargains thread, but as you are all talking tuners... What are your thoughts on DAB in a hifi setting? I'd like to be able to get some DAB stations (like R6 Music) but not if it's going to sound crap.
    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    T/T: Inspire Monarch, X200 tonearm, Ortofon 2M Black. Phono: Yaqin MS-22B CD: Marantz CD6006 (UK Edition); Headphone/pre: Myryad Z40; Amp: Musical Fidelity A5 Integrated. Audion Silver Night 300b stereo is enjoying a holiday
    Speakers: Zu Omen Def. Cables: Atlas Equator interconnects, Atlas Hyper 3.0 speaker cables

    T'other system:
    Echo Dot, Amptastic Mini One,Celestion 5's, BK XLS-200 DF

    A/V:
    LG 55" OLED, Panasonic Blu Ray, Sony a/v amp, MA Radius speakers, REL Storm sub

    Forget the past, it's gone. And don't worry about the future, it doesn't exist. There is only NOW.

    NAD 3020a prices are getting silly: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265413096...0AAOSwrrhhl8NV

    It's a reasonable choice as a vintage budget amp and not unpleasant to listen to, if not desperately exciting. It's just not worth spending a lot on and this one isn't even particularly tidy.
