I made a post the other day in the vinyl forum and somebody mentioned listening to the radio and it got me thinking about getting a tuner even though I hardly ever listen to the radio. I have a tube system and thought that if I got a tuner it would have to be a tube tuner.
Well, I hit the thrifts and didn't find any tube tuners (of course) but I saw a NAD 4020a tuner. I decided to plug it in and in the middle of the store with out an antenna attached to it it pulled in a stereo signal. I figured that was a good sign and decided to purchase it.
I took it home and plugged it in and tuned in the classical station. It sounded pretty good but I was getting quite a bit of background hiss. I found my Terk AF-1 antenna and attached it to the tuner and it sounds great.
Now I can listen to the radio while I continue my search for a tuner with tubes in it.
