I love the KUSC classical station which is broadcast out of LA. My folks love it too when they come to visit but they live in the far north of the state. KUSC is rebroadcast out of Sunnyvale, CA at 6000 watts but they still live about 350 miles north of there. I'd love to be able to set them up with a system that will pull it in over the air. KUSC is broadcast over the internet too but it wouldn't be the same.
Definitely looking for both the ability to pull in the distant station and for audiophile sound. They do live on a hill but they don't want an outdoor antenna. Can we pull this off? Any suggestions for either a tuner or receiver? They'd be starting from zero and would need an amp anyway.

- A rhombic wire antenna made using 300 ohm twin ribbon in a loft or an outdoor rhombic can do a very good job. - Timbo in Oz 20:45:34 09/07/16 (0)
