Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

How many of you are still using tuners regularly

Every time I sit down and listen to my Marantz network streaming player I think back on the horrible times I had trying to listen to classical music on FM radio.

Back then I lived in NJ and between three military bases. However the local classical stations were so compressed that they were rendered unlistenable. And the NYC stations, for such a world renowned city it sure had mediocre classical stations - oh I meant - station!

But if you were lucky enough to even get a NYC station in that would depend on if the "local??" illegal stations that the FCC didn't want to touch weren't on that day. Oh yeah, then there was a country and western station in Philadelphia that on occasion would decide to crank the power dial to death ray.

Boy I don't miss my tuners.
