I'm no newbie to hi-fi,,,but I'll never understand spending big bucks to listen to radio....
It's all in the eye of the beholder John, and if you were listening to this tuner, it wouldn't last long. You're better off buying a vintage tuner and having it serviced than buying one of these new pieces....all in you can have state of the art for less than $500! And by the way, you need a good antenna to boot, otherwise stick to your cd's and lp's.
OK- Here's the thing. If you only listen to hard rock or Top 40, an expensive tuner is probably worthless. The signals they use are crap (but loud) and the equipment is not that great and is playing recordings that are often sub par too. But, if you are lucky enough to live near some high quality stations that play live jazz or classical with any regularity, a good tuner is like gold. Stations like those use very high quality equipment and getting live feed out is much closer to a mixed down version from many CDs and LPs. Plus- iot's cool to just be able to have that kind of access. And even when such stations play recordings, again, the quality is very good and you're getting a lot closer to the source than you'd get with a built-in receiver. Granted, the one they are featuring is for the fanatic maybe. I have sued Magnum Dynalab and it's excellent. But the point is, FM can actually be good sound, believe it or not.
If Magnum Dynalab is excellent why did you sue them LOL
This piano tuner looks incredible. I have a big problem. I just took my m4 paintball gun and shot my piano up and now I want to get this piano tuner, but I don't have the cash. I wish the good stuff wasn't this expensive...but than I guess it wouldn't be the good stuff.
