Bottom Line:   
Bought this used to match a Naim amp and CD player. It has surpassed my expectations. I've had some excellent lower/moderately priced tuners including from Magnum Dynalab (FT-11, FT-101A), Rega (Tuner), and Creek (3040, 3140, T43), and the NAT-05 is superior; it is the best sounding tuner I've owned. It has a dead quiet background/noise floor, and I hear no sibilance or hissing. It is very dynamic, non-fatiguing, and provides very nice tight low bass. I am using with a Magnum Dynalab ST-2 antenna mounted outdoors, and am approximately 50 km from my major transmitting stations. It is very simple to use--either with the remote, or the front panel buttons. It seems as sensitive as the other tuners mentioned above, at least for the stations I typically visit, holds stations perfectly, and never suffers from distracting mono-to-stereo switching on more distant stations. It is a nice feature to be able to turn off its front panel lights without completely shutting it off.

Bottom Line:   
It has always been about the Music; this chase for the perfect electronic reproduction. Naim has refined the presentation, and for the most part, left the listner with Music. A tuner that plays jazz, clasical and popular venues with full dynamics, poise, presence and "air"-wonderful air to surround the performance with a distict sense of space and place. Perfect-of course not; for that, buy a ticket.

Bottom Line:   
Nice solid slim-line construction. Has a good look and heavy feel so you know made well as with all the NAIM products. I love the way it picks up stations well, even with my TERK FM PRO antenna used indoors. Can't wait to buy a large outdoor antenna to see how this tuner really works. But until then, I am happy with it as is.
The remote is easy to use and I like the numerous presets available, plus the fact you can enter the station frequency on the keypad and it tunes right to the station. The only thing I do not like is when the unit is in pre-set mode and you scan through the pre-set stations, only the number is displayed and not the frequency. I personaaly would like to see the frequency to know what station I am listening to. That is my only gripe about this tuner, while it is not a huge deal, I can live with it.
