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

As of this post, the auction you linked has 5 days left...

...and current bid is $305. Since all significant bidding usually occurs in the last few seconds, this 10B will surely go for >>$305. OTOH it will probably not go for the $2K+ it might have a decade ago. Same can be said for just about any HiFi tuner today except the rare low volume collectibles like REL Precedent, Fisher FM1000 and maybe Scott 4310.

Can't speak for your locale but in mine the greatest advantage of a really nice vintage tube tuner is that they're visually attractive when all lit up. A friend "restores" vintage audio equip for fun and profit. When he gets a tuner he replaces caps and bad tubes but doesn't bother with alignment. Owners refuse to pay for it and probably couldn't tell the difference if they did.
