    Strength:

    Natural sound, no electronic harshness, rich bass. Remote has presets.

    Weakness:

    It smooths over the finer detail, which makes a lot of music sound a bit thick but still listenable. Noticeable top-end rolloff which might disappoint some people(I didn't buy the tuner with the optional Kimber wiring which presumably would change that).

    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.
