IIRC, that tuner was well-known for DX'ing, but may have had some manufacturing issues that could cause problems. I think the power supply was prone to burning out capacitors. If it works good, it should sound at least as good as the Yammy it will replace.
The CT-400 and its cousins are OK, but it was, of course, the bottom of the line at its time.
I mean, heck, you can get a CT-1010 for less than a hunnert smackers.
The CT-1010 is at the least a fairly decent sounding (and reasonably "hot") soiled state tuner.
and, unlike many of the cheaper Yamaha tuners, at least it has actually got some stuff inside of it...
When it comes to actually listening to FM, though, I am still awfully partial to this family of tuners...
This one is one of the later, on-board MPX stereo morphs of this fine, unassuming (and cheap) little FM tuner.
all the best,
The 400 is in the bedroom system, if the tuner is on for more than a hour a week, it is unusual.
I bought the 400 over 10 years ago. At one time as I think I said, I actually was looking for a Citation 23. I vaguely remember it being recommended.
I have a good tuner in the main system, there is a 23 I can get for the cost of shipping. Otherwise I would not be even asking, the 400 would stay where it is.
