I had the T23 for only a month. Not because it was worse but the remote conflicted with my televison. The sound is smooth , warm, and the built is excellent. I have returned it and bought the Naim 5. Much more expensive and the sound was poor and not brilliant like the Primare. If you can afford is buy it!

Strength:

Sensitivity. low noise level, excellent sound quality, solid construction.

Weakness:

Slightly unfriendly controls. May be hard to find.

The T23 is a basic FM/DAB tuner. I can;t use the DAB capability as digital service doesn't seem to be available. The FM is excellent. The tuner is very sensitive (important since I live in an area with relatively weak signals) and has a very low noise level. The sound is smooth, natural and very clear. I think it's about as good as FM gets. The tuner looks fairly elegant, with a simple, understated Scandinavian design which sacrifices some user-friendliness to appearance (functions are controlled by a row of 6 identical, small metal buttons marked with cryptic hieroglyphs). However, I listen to a limited number of stations so, once I got the presets programmed, this ceased to be a problem. The tuner is very solidly constructed and the controls work very smoothly - it looks and feels like a high-quality piece of equipment. It's an excellent value for the money and I'm very satisfied with it.

Customer Service

Excellent. Audio Connection is a fine dealer.

Similar Products Used: No exact equivalent - I've owned a Linn Classik with an FM tuner and various receivers over the years.
