OK, so for all of you who are still laughing because I reported that my tube H. H. Scott tube tuner (mono) sounded great, here we go with the latest and greatest thing.
THE SONY XDRF1HD HD Radio Tuner and C. Crane FM antenna combination from Amazon.com. HOLY SAMOLIES !!!
I have listened to the great FM tuners of all times, the McIntosh M78, top of the line Kenwood, the drop dead gorgeous Pioneer something or other, but this $99 tuner in analog mode is a close match to these iconic tuners.
If you have a decent FM station in your area GRAB ONE OF THESE and forget whatever is integrated in your receiver. You will never turn back and never regret buying one of these tuners.
Just my 2 Shekels.
