I'm looking for a seperate AM/FM digital tuner for my NAD 3155 Integrated amp. I'm mainly looking for brands to watch. As far as price range goes, I'm looking for the stuff that goes for under $20.00 on eBay.
I currently am watching the following items on eBay:
-Yamaha T-60 Natural Sound Tuner
-Denon TU 767
-Nikko Gamma 1
They all range from $1.00 to $20.00, and was wondering which one was the best sounding tuner.
You're going to be hard-pressed to find anything that cheap. Figure at least $50 with shipping! Here's one example of what you you can get for around $20; the final price will probably be closer to $30.
That Sansui seller has quite a moniker. I've got an idea how its pronounced, and its surely derived from a language unknown to me.
Also it is analog, and I think it may only be 4inches deep and like an inch tall. I'd say look for an 1980s analog tuner.
I bought a used Yamaha tuner on eBay (nice and thin) for about $20. There are lots available there. Are you gun shy about buying one on eBay?
i've scored several good cheap tuners at yard sales:
pioneer tx5500ii - $10
jvc digital - $6
yamaha tx-1 only $50
4" high? FM only do? Heathkit AJ-14 transistor anologe measures 3 5/8" high (including feet and wood case- metal case is less) x 12 5/8" wide (metal case is less) x 9 1/4" deep. Manual for same includes no instruments required alignment procedure. It's a sleeper, so price is usually low. Got mine with Manual for $11, weight is under 5# so shiping will be low as well. 3-gang tuner, 4 dual-tuned IF stages, ratio detector, phase adj. multiplex. IOW, based on tube circuts = great sonics. It's my primary source, preferable to my Sony ST-5150 AM/FM stereo tuner.
I may be mis-understanding what your looking for here, but the shipping alone is probably going to run you more than 20 bucks.
I think you can get a decent tuner though for under $200. I'd look for a used Marantz - They're good!
