The Nakamichi ST-7 is a tastefully designed tuner that is very underrated. High build quality that you just don't see anymore, unless you spend a lot more than this tuner original costs ($895). It has a neutral and natural sound that doesn't overemphasize any part of the musical spectrum. Great sensitivity too! They just don't make 'em like this anymore. I own two of them. Grab them while they're still going for very little money in online marketplaces like eBay, because one day the prices are gonna go up, as more people realize the high quality of these gorgeous tuners.

Strength:

Exceptional sound for a tuner source

The Schotz noise cancelling circuitry brought from earlier designs of Sherwood tuner has this instrument sound a source other than a contemporary tuner. The sound is lovely, melodic.

I had before buying this unit in 1985 listened to very many high end tuners and heard nothing to compare -- it is the end of 2000 and I still have nothing comparable.

Strength:

Very quiet with a sensitive and selective front end. Exceptional build quality.

Weakness:

Slightly less real than the mega-dollar best of class.

Excellent digital AM/FM tuner w Schotz noise reduction circuitry. Exceptional build quality, sensitivity and selectivity. Sonics are bettered by only a few tuners in my evaluation (Modded MR-78, Day-Sequerra, Accuphase, Rotel RHT-10) Sansui and MD are quite close. Originally retailed at $795. Second-hand units currently bring, on average, between $325 to $495.

Strength:

Sensitivity, Low Noise

Weakness:

None

Very under-rated tuner. The sound quality is awesome, very sensitive on both AM and FM, even if the build quality inside is a little ordinary. Schotz Noise Reduction isn't a gimmick - worthwhile feature - I wonder why it hasn't been more popular. If you fall across one of these babies - grab it - unless you already have something like a Vintage McIntosh or Marantz. If you want something slimline and synthesizer I haven't seen a better tuner.
