RE: How many of you are still using tuners regularly

I'm a tuner dinosaur listening to KBAQ (classical) as I answer this on a Scott 310E. On average listen to it 8 hours a day or so. Basically I got into this working, KBAQ always on. KBAQ will play something that I like, that sounds very, very good with this combination of equipment, and it just stops me in my tracks.

I have probably updated, tweaked and listened to a dozen tuners before settling on this one. I'm sure a lot has to do with personal taste, system synergy etc. At times I like it better than the CD players I have (Electrompaniet currently), depends a lot on what KBAQ is playing. Yes, vinyl sounds better, but that's a lot of record changes.

Streaming, I have a linux music server, have tried a few DAC's, and so far none that I like at all. I haven't heard a Marantz streamer, and I have been reading the digital forum believing that I am missing something, so I have a PS Audio Nuwave on its way. Will update this post in a few days after I try it.
