Bottom Line:   

it's a special honor for me to write the first review on this very nice piece of equipment. The manufacturer "Audio Refinement" isn't really well known by the usual audio hifi fan, but all of their equipment should be worth a try!

I use the Complete Tuner since about half a year and am very, very happy with it! I used some other tuners before but this beats them all in all ways. It has 14 preset memory buttons, AM/FM band and auto/manual tuning mode - that's it.

But it does what not every tuner can: It sounds very, very nice! Beautiful wide and deep soundstage, cristal clear voices exactly from between the stereo-loudspeakers. That's audiophile equipment at it's best!

If you see this tuner, do yourself a flavor and give it a try! It really sounds that good, and it has a nice optics, too.
