My previous experience with tuners was with those lame devices built into receivers. But having an audiophile stereo system, I finally decided to give a quality tuner a try. At its best, the tuner approaches CD quality. I listen to classical stations most of the time, and this tuner can handle full orchestra with a solid bass response. Instruments sound palpable, not the thin, nebulous characteristics you hear on a tuner/receiver. Massed violins have no scratchiness. Solo instruments often have a startling realism. Dynamics are better than expected for a broadcast signal. Now I listen to the radio a great deal. I think everyone should have a good tuner -- it's free music and you get to hear all kinds of fresh music you haven't encountered before.
The first tuner had a faulty LED display, but the company cheerfully built a new tuner for me and actually broke it in for me at the factory while they were waiting for my faulty unit to arrive.
