    I'm very curious about any tech item

    Favourite tuner

    What's your favourite FM tuner ?
    In my family we have :
    PL 5000 ( very aggressive and good tuning due to PLL )
    Sony 5000 F ( excellent circuit and good sound )
    Nad 4150 ( good selectivity and noise reducer )
    Dynaco FM 5 ( excellent sound and good tuning due to Dynatune ( a sort of PLL )
    It must be noted that I and my father have roof mounted antennas ,
    "perfectly " adjusted for Milan zone .
    Ciao e Buona Pasqua

    I have been running this Sansui TU-717

    I like it a lot. I like the output/volume pot on it. Very clean and pulls in the stations (what few I have here in the boonies). The Mariachi bands never sounded sweeter (yuk)...

    Great reviews and specs on it too

    The Sansui TU-X1 I have sitting at my sisters house for the last 20+ years. I never listen to radio anymore though. I should sell it as they have become quite pricey but paying for an alignment to get top dollar sucks

    Still Pioneer TX-9100 and I love Kenwoods in general. The tuner in a Sansui 2000A is a nice one as well with the added benefit that you can easily retune it to cover expanded AM band and should be able to do some manual tweaking of the AM bandwidth as well, which made it and the 5050 good candidates for AM stereo conversion in the daze.

    They are all over the board Perry, mine is about as nice looking as you can get. I hung on to it hoping the matching amp showed up at the same pawn shop in Rochester. I paid $150 for it back in 1994
