Bottom Line:   
Could not believe the price, excellent condition, what more could you ask for in a non RDS tuner.

Bottom Line:   
The sound quality off of broadcast is very good. The depth of the unit, as indicated by previous reviewers can be problematic. It necessitates longer interconnects because of its shallow depth, and the outputs being on the opposite side (as compared to my other units--all of which have the rca-jacks on the rear right). There is no signal strength meter, and no remote functionality. Other than these physical design shortcomings, it does everything I would want a tuner to do--receive broadcasts with good selection and sound quality. It is a bargain at the price I paid, and overall I am very pleased with it. It compares favorably with pricier offerings from Denon (e.g. TU-1500) for sound and reception if you don't need RDS (which I do not), but the build quality is not the same. Overall 3.5 stars, with 1.5 take off for build and design. 4.5 stars for value.

Bottom Line:   
Were it not for the lack of signal metering, I would almost question the wisdom of spending any more on a tuner.

Living in very flat, built up London, using a roof aerial, I can pick up local FM radio stations all over Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire in crisp, uninterrupted stereo. Voices have a sense of space, and music is engaging with good separation. Of the tuners I've listened to, only the gorgeous Audiolab 8000T was appreciably better, with a cleaner, more tonally neutral sound. Bearing in mind that the Denon sold for £129, and the Audiolab for £799, this would be something of a disgrace on Audiolab's part if this were not the case.

If they added a signal strength meter and cleaned up the front panel a bit, they could shift these things for £400 a pop and nobody would complain.
