Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

I'm in the final stage of modifying my TU-X1...

I only have the MPX board to do, which is the most difficult to get to(requires some disassembling) but I am awaiting a few caps so should have it complete within a couple of weeks. I'll give you an opinion once all the new caps settle in. So far, the sound is pretty incredible. Just upgrading the power supply board with expensive Black Gates and putting in a new bridge rectifier improved the sound tremendously. I have never heard such amazing soundstage, stereo separation and prodigious bass from any tuner and I have a few modded tuners that unmodified gave them higher rankings than the TU-X1 in the FMtuner shoot-out.. I'm going to guess that the finalized modified TU-X1 just might make it to the top of my rankings. Whichever tuner wins will be in my main system as my reference tuner. Current reference tuners are modified Sansui TU-9900 and H/K Citation 18. I also have a highly modded Sansui TU-717(Black gates, Silmic II and expensive film and foil throughout) and it is also an incredibly musical tuner with the right antenna and a good live broadcast from NPR)
